Katy Perry O.P.I. Collaboration

I am sure all of you have heard about this line coming up and let me just tell you I am already DYING for it. I am planning on getting every single color and that is super rare for me! I can't wait, and it comes out in January which is my birthday month, how much more perfect could it be?!
And I'm sorry but I have to say I'm not terribly excited or over reacting about the new Serena Williams line... I guess... I mean, prove me wrong let's see how it goes.

Tell me what you think of this upcoming collection!

Different Essie Mint Candy Apple Versions

Hey Guys,

I haven't blogged in a while but here is the one thing I have been working on blogging about for a super long time. Well I know most of you have a bottle of Essie's Mint Candy Apple if you are a true nail polish fanatic. I loved it so much that when I saw that my original bottle was just the slightest but of empty I ran to the nearest beauty supply to get a back up bottle. But I bet most of you didn't know that there are TWO different versions of the color! The original color came out in 2009 had more of a blue tint leaning to a really minty blue more than a turquoise. I am guessing that due to all the popularity they re-released it.... but... I guess they threw away the formula or something because this color is obviously different.

give mee feed back my nail junkie amigas!

Franken Post!

Hey Guys,

a while back I was just messing around with polish and mixing them in an empty bottle of seche I had, and it turned into a really pretty turquoise so I decided I would try to franken dupe Nouvelle Vague from Chanel because I never got it. And although I know it's not that close, it does have the shimmer so I like it just the same. It took me 2 coats no top coat and the application was pretty nice.

Here I compared it to For Audrey, same thing two coats no top coat.
and thumb-franken, index-For Audrey and so on...

I haven't had any ideas on what to name my franken yet so if you have any ideas comment or email me!

Essie Fall Into Fashion (Mini) Collection

To be honest I wasn't completely thrilled with this new collection with the exception of Sew Psyched and Merino Cool, and since the mini pack included both I just got that. So here are some swatches... well three but you get the idea. All had great application, two coats, no topcoat. My favorite was Merino Cool by far. Sew Psyched didn't drive me crazy.

Avon Swatches

Hey Guys!,
I'm back to posting this weekend, I'm home sick so I had some extra time to swatch.

I bought all of these colors with my own money during a sale where I got them for around 2-3 dollars I think. GREAT DEAL. Watch out for their sales!


two coats, no top coat, thin yet great BUTTERY application. built up beautifully by second coat

LUXE LAVENDER. (not as blue as it appears in pictures)
two coats, no top coat. same as jade in application, thin first coat but perfect by second. And I forgot to mention ALL of these dry VERY quickly and don't even need top coat as you can see

After swatching this one I was messing around and put OPI The Color to Watch (comment and tell me if you want a full swatch of this color-from OPI Swiss Collection) and with China Glaze's Grape Juice. I thought this was great because alone both colors are very sheer and take several coats to build up, so instead I could just put the Luxe Lavender under it and put one coat of the GJ or TCtW on top.
The pointer and middle finger are the color to watch and the other two fingers are grape juice
^sorry I messed up the ring finger.
same as the last two, great application, two coats/ no top coat, dry's fast and glossy

Okay, well I will have a few more posts coming to you but please tell me if you guys want a certain review on something, pleasee! I want you guys emailing me at with requests, opinions, and what you think about the blog in general. Also comment below telling me if you like that I am putting lots of pictures lately, or if you prefer less, or if you want them bigger....

okay well that's about it :) hope you have a great weekend
