Barielle Date Night

A really stunning glowing green.

Teeez Femme Fatale

Oo, this polish is amazing! Amazing I tell you! *sigh* This is why I love swapping. So I can get my greedy hands on polishes like this. It's a shimmery red with golden red and violet blue flecks. It kicks OPI Smitten With Mittens butt! This is one layer over China Glaze Ravishing Dahling. I think this may make it to my top 10 red polishes.

Thank you Ms. Mirannie's Nails for this awesome polish!

If you click this one to make it larger you can see the violet flecks.

Sally Hansen Distressed Denim - Navy Jelly Crack

I stumbled across the Sally Hansen crackle display and this was the only one that caught my eye. In the bottle it's a vibrant deep blue and it's a jelly so the base color can show through a little. Very pretty. No problems with it cracking and it cracked over not very dry polish and completely dry polish. My complaint is the brush. Mine is wonky and slightly bent at an angle. Not too horrible but at the price, close to $8, I expect a bit better. Thankfully I had coupons!

I do like the way this cracks and I adore the color. This is one thin coat over Chine Glaze Bahamian Escape.

Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like

Now the song is stuck in my head but I'm not complaining. This is a periwinkle based blue that has a dusty feel to it. It's more muted and deeper compared to OPI Dating a Royal and more purple and lighter compared to China Glaze Bermuda Breakaway. It's a nice blue that may fill a gap in your blue collection.

*This was sent to me for review and now I don't have to buy it!*

Brucci Spam

Brucci is a great brand and they have a really nice range of shades and a stellar formula. I thought I would share some of the shades I like with you all.

Alexandra's Hot Gray

Daniella's Curve - a very close dupe to CND's Brigitte.

Mia's Brazenberry

Jimmi's Cognac Gem - this has an almost suede look with micro shimmer.

Chris's Green Belt


Brucci Elizabeth's A Natural

This is in my top 10 for nude shades. It's a mix of grey and taupe with a hint of lilac. The formula on this is very close to being a one coater. Love this one.

Deborah Lippmann Lara's Theme

I'm not a huge fan of orange unless it's a muted foliage type of orange. Lara's Theme I like and I say that in a surprised tone. It's vibrant and juicy and just a happy color. It's not neon which is a huge plus to me. Honestly, it just makes me grin while wearing it but I could be high from polish vapors. Really lovely formula too.

*This was sent to me for review but I would have bought it!*

L'Oreal Summer 2011: Summer Siren

Spotted the L'Oreal Summer Siren display at Rite Aid. Finally! Since there was only one bottle of each color left I brought them home. All are on the sheer side and would look great over a matching creme. They have a glass fleck shimmer and all are bright and vibrant. They aren't totally unique but I do have a weakness for glass fleck shimmer polishes. If you come across the collection I highly suggest Yellow Seahorse!

Yellow Seahorse. A yellow with golden shimmer. I'm not a huge fan of yellow but I really like this one. You don't see many non-neon yellow polishes in summer collections. Reminds me of Street Wear Taxi.

Coral Starfish. This is orange even though the name makes you think it may be coral. The shimmer has hints of pink which I suppose could be the coral part. A nice formula even though it is sheer. It's juicy.

Pink Shells. A hot and vibrant pink with lots of shimmer. This scream pedicure to me.

Blue Marine. A teal green/blue with shimmer. I thought I would go goofy over this one but the whole teal/blue/green shimmer/glass fleck thing is getting boring. A great color but nothing that we all haven't seen before. The most sheer of the bunch too.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic OCC Tattoo

A deep murky green. Gorgeous formula!

Bundle Monster BM204: Matte Flowers

This didn't photograph well at all. It looks much better in person. I used Bundle Monster plate BM204 and three different stamping colors - orange, yellow and green. I just put the colors on the image in different spots and wiped them off. The mixed really well. After I put a matte topcoat over everything. The base color is Jessica Intrigue.

Reminds me of a knitted coin purse.

OPI Spark de Triomphe

I bought the set this came in just for this polish. This is really sweet. It's two different size silver and gold glitter. The mix together creates a muted tarnished champagne color. It's very crisp looking. A nice surprise was that it wasn't a pain to remove.
