BB Couture Frosty Meadow

I love BB Couture, they really do have some unique polishes.  Frosty Meadow is no different.  It's a gorgeous dusty green jelly with green glitter.  The glitter isn't extremely gritty so you only need one coat of topcoat to get it nice and smooth.

This is 3 coats.

China Glaze Wagon Trail

Today, I decided to revisit one of my old favorites, Wagon Trail.  It was apart of China Glaze's fall 2008 collection Rodeo Diva.  Rodeo Diva is hands down one of my favorite collections from China Glaze.

Wagon trail is a gorgeous blackened olive green shimmer.  It was definitely one of my favorites (along with half the nail world) of the collection.

This is 3 coats.

Orly Space Cadet

I don't know what it is with me and taking so long to try out polish I've bought a year(s) ago.  I'll just say I'm reminding everyone of that awesome polish they bought a while ago.

Anyways, Space Cadet is a gorgeous polish.  As a duochrome it flashes gold, green, and purple.  It comes on pretty sheer at first, but because it's a duochrome and so pretty, I don't mind.  If you can't find Space Cadet or don't want to pay $10, Hard Candy has a dupe called Beetle.

This is 4 coats.

E.L.F. Cosmetics Brown and La Rosa Seafoam

You know crackle polish is popular when you run into an ex (who knows of your polish addiction) and he asks you if you've heard of it.  I proceeded to look at him like he had 3 boobs.  What kind of question is that?  Of course I'd heard of it.

Today I wanted to go for a look with one of my favorite color combinations, brown and blue.

I used 1 coat of Brown.  I could have used 2 to cover up some slight bald spots.  I was pleasantly surprised with the formula and pigmentation since it only cost me 99 cents.





I also love the La Rosa crackle and prefer the formula to OPI and China Glaze crackle polishes.  It cracks nicely and I have no complaints about the formula.

Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air over Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom

Now normally sheer polishes don't do it for me, but when I saw these two layered by grayeyez on MUA, I needed both of these asap.

This is 3 coats of Bikini Bottom.





Aside from how sheer Bikini Bottom is, the formula was pretty easy to work with.

This is Bikini Bottom with 2 coats of Glitter in the air.

Sally Hansen Red Carpet

This one is from the Xtreme Wear line.  (Side Note:  Can someone please explain to me why Sally Hansen has 50 million different lines??)  It's a jelly red with red glitter and is a very close dupe to China Glaze's Ruby Pumps.  For a glitter, it dries extremely smooth, which is a plus in my book.

This is 3 coats.
