New Stash and Nail Swatches

From left to right. Orly-Tiara, China Glaze Grape Juice, Shocking Pink(Neon), For Audrey, Heaven

Not the best photo but here are the 4 China Glaze polishes on my nails.

What I'm Wearing.

I've worn about 3 different polishes in the past few days before I finally put the color I'm about to show you on.

Sally Hansen Insta-dri Fast Dry Nail Color is a quick and easy polish for people who don't want to wait forever for their nails to dry. The brush is perfect, allowing you paint your nail in just one stroke. Or at least that is the case for me since I have small nails.

I put the color Presto Pink on. It's a nice pick color. Nothing to flash, just simple and pretty. I used one coat and got pretty great coverage.

How do you feel about nail art?

I've never been big into nail art. A rhinestone here or there, hearts, or maybe polka dots. But not much else.

Did anyone catch Katy Perry's nails on May 30, 2009. Sushi theme.

Nail art on a whole other level.

What I want to try...

Love this color. Think it might be my next purchase.

China Glaze Neon Celtic Sun $5.99


Sally Beauty Supply

Look for a Sally near you. Affordable nail polish in a wide range of colors. Or you can order online.,default,sc.html?psortb1=category-pos_Nail01

Finger Paints, China Glaze, Nina Ultra Pro etc.

What's on my nails.

I made a trip to Sally Beauty Supply a few days ago in search of the perfect neon pink. I was in luck. I found several, but 2 of them really struck my fancy. I bought Nina Ultra Pro Fuchsia Rage, and Nina Ultra Pro Punki Pink.
I immediately went home to test them out. Fuchsia Rage was the lighter of the two so I went with it first. It dries quickly which is a huge plus. The polish is a matte finish. However, I just grabbed my Revlon Multi Care Base+Top Coat and got the shine I desired. Thus far it has worn extremely well. I love the color. I was just what I wanted.

Cost per bottle $3.79

Try it and let me know what you think.

My Collection...

Okay my first nail polish post is coming to you right now. I finally went through all my nail polish that was still good or brand new. I had about 30+ bottles. I know that doesn't seem like a lot to some however it's still an expanding collection.

I tend to stay with in the pink hues, but I'm going to try and branch out.

Pictured below in my current polish collection. Ranging from Essie to Petites.
