Nina Ultra Pro – Velvet Seas

How pretty is this polish? Velvet Seas is amazing. In indoor light it’s a teal metallic but is packed with shimmer. It’s a gorgeous teal and my very first Nina Ultra Pro polish! Seeing how pretty this polish is makes me want to go grab a few more from the Crushed Velvet collection. It applies […] Continue reading →

The Kicks line was full of bright and fun colors, but this is the only color I own from the collection. Custom Kicks is a blue leaning teal with very fine gold shimmer. When I  picked […] Continue reading →

China Glaze C-C-Courage

I am so thankful China Glaze re-released their Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection just for this polish. Originally released in 2001, China Glaze re-released this collection at the end of 2009. C-C-Courage is a deep purple full of silver glitter. The silver glitter isn’t microglitter, but it’s not full on chunky glitter either. It’s somewhere […] Continue reading →

wet n wild Wild Shine Wild Orchid

Yet another fabulous drugstore find! wet n wild’s Wild Shine line retails for just under a dollar, and is often on sale. I picked up Wild Orchid during Rite Aid’s store wide 25% off cosmetics sale. Wild Orchid caught my eye immediately. It’s two of my favorite things: purple and sparklely! When I got home […] Continue reading →

OPI I’m Indi-a Mood for Love

OPI I’m Indi-a Mood for Love is from the Spring 2008 India collection. I did not purchase this color when the collection came out. Pinks, especially pink cremes, really just aren’t my thing. But over the summer Ulta was running a promotion giving away Pretty Little Pinks with any $10 OPI purchase. This included three […] Continue reading →

OPI – Pink Me I’m Good

OPI’s Pink Me I’m Good is an Ulta exclusive for Valentine’s 2010. It’s so pretty! It’s pink and sparkly and those are two things I love. It has warm gold and pink glitter in a hot pink jelly base. It’s amazing. Actually, now that I’m thinking about how much I liked this polish I might […] Continue reading →

OPI Yes…I Can-Can!

Yes….I Can-Can! is from my all time favorite OPI collection; La Collection de France. Released in the Fall of 2008, La Collection de France is responsible for two of my favorite polishes (Lourve Me, Lourve Me Not and We’ll Always have Paris). When France was originally released I passed on Yes…I Can-Can!. There were just […] Continue reading →

Essie – Pop Art Pink

Essie’s Pop Art Pink is gorgeous. It’s a very delicate, light pink from Essie’s Spring 2010 Collection. I’ve been loving pinks lately so I just couldn’t help myself when I saw it. I’ve never used a “typical” (very light) Essie Polish so I figured it was a win-win situation. Right? I love it. Big drawback? […] Continue reading →

OPI Nice Color, Eh?

OPI Nice Color, Eh? is from the Fall 2004 Canadian collection. It is/was part of OPI’s permanent collection, but is now being discontinued. Get it while you can find it! Nice Color, Eh? is a rosy pink. In the bottle there appears to be a bit of silver microglitter, but on the nail it looks […] Continue reading →

wet n wild craze nail color Glitz

Ah yes, yet another glitter. I can’t seem to stay away! Wet n wild’s craze line is their “trendy” line of polishes. The company describes them as “high-performance, collectible nail colors [that] are specially selected from the season’s latest trends.” For less than $2 a (.34 oz) bottle, I figured I’d give it a try.
