Borghese Stellare Notte

 I found this at Ross last week along with some Color Club polishes and quickly snatched it up. For $1.99, wouldn't you? Its a really hard color to describe. Its a dark blue/green polish with flashes of purple shimmer. Really hard to capture the colors, so I took multiple pictures in an attempt to show those colors. Most of them turned out to green in my opinion so I'm left with these:

I love the brush on this polish! Reminds me of my beloved OPI Pro-Wide brush which makes painting my nails so easy! Also, after working with Hard Candy Sky the other day, this polish almost applied itself. It was so smooth and went on like butter. I wish Borghese made more interesting colors though because I definitely would have more of them.

Hard Candy Sky, Riva Dupe?

Please excuse this messy manicure, but I was in a hurry to put this on after I read this post about Hard Candy Sky being a dupe for Chanel Riva. Lets just be clear, Sky is not a polish you should hastily apply. Its streaky and hard to work with, but what can I say? I was excited.

Sky has a slight shimmer you really have to be close to in order to see. In normal lighting, you don't even notice it. This is 3 coats with Seche Vite topcoat. Of course, I don't have Riva to compare this to, so I can only be sure from the other pictures Ive seen on the internet. 

Are you getting Chanel Riva or will you be searching for a dupe? What do you think about Hard Candy as a dupe?

Let me know!

Essence High Waist Pink

About a week ago, I spotted  Essence's Denim Wanted collection in Ulta and decided to get High Waist Pink. I think I like the name more than anything because this pink is not unique. Its just a bright pink, leaning a little towards the coral side. This is two coats plus Seche Vite topcoat. For my first Essence polish, I'm neither impressed nor underwhelmed. Its just another pink to add to my arsenal.

Color Club Covered in Diamonds

I recently got half of the the Color Club Fall 2010 Untamed Luxury collection and I was eager to give Color Club another try. After giving Chelsea Girl from the Poptastic collection a whirl and being disappointed, it took a lot to purchase these, but I did. The first polish I tried out was the one named after the collection, Covered in Diamonds. I knew I wanted to layer it over black the moment I saw it, so that exactly what I did!

Covered in Diamonds has different sizes of chunky, holographic glitter in a clear base. This polish was very thick, but I found that I could move the glitter around before it dried. This came in handy when I found glitter hanging haphazardly off of my tips. Topped with two coats of Seche Vite, my nails look thick! I can literally see the polish layered on my nails. All that considered, I still like this combo and so did the cashier at Ulta because she complimented me on my nails. They look sort of comic to me more than being covered in diamonds.

OPI Tease-y Does It

I wouldn't normally go for a chocolately purple polish but like I mentioned before it came in a set with my beloved OPI Sparkle-icious so here it is with me. This is two coats and I am not terribly impressed with it. Its a shimmery vampy and I do love those, but nothing stands out here for me. I suppose that's why I only wore it for two days. 

Sorry for the dry skin/cuticles. I had just removed Sparkle-icious with acetone before applying this.

OPI Sparkle-icious

There are very few words that can describe the glitterbomb on my nails. Amazing is one of them. I knew from the moment I saw the glitters in the OPI Burlesque collection that I needed Sparkle-icious. Not only does it have something in common with my blog's new namesake, but it successfully achieves making my nails look dangerously gorgeous. An explosion of gold, turquoise and pink, this is not for the faint. I've gotten a couple of stares at my nails, but hey! What can I say? I'm a girl that loves nail polish and I'm crazy enough to look like I dipped my fingers in bucket of glitter. 

 I purchased Sparkle-icious in a set with Tease-y Does It and OPI body shimmer was included. I think its very pretty, but not sure I'll be wearing it anytime soon....I'm really not a body shimmer type of girl.

Butter London Minger + Sally Hansen Golden Ticket

Nail polish lovers, do you feel bad when you don't use all the nail polish you own? I do! I have so many polishes that when I look at my untrieds I feel guilty about not using them! Admittedly, I don't have as much polish as other bloggers so I don't know how they do it! Anyway, I've had this orange Butter London for months because I don't care much or orange cremes but I recently got SH Golden Ticket and needed something to layer it over.

Not sure what to to think of this combo, in some lights I think its pretty and in others not so much.  I also didn't think there was anything special about this Butter London to justify it being $14.00. I used one opaque coat of Minger and topped it with one coat of Golden Ticket, trying to keep my hand light, so the glitter wouldn't be so heavy. Also, please ignore the weirdness going on with my middle finger. These pictures are within hours of my applying this polish, but I have some ridge thing going on with my natural nails after removing my false nails.

Just Like Candy

Yes the song by Cameo is playing it my head right now. (By the way, you might wanna watch that video if you're in need of a good laugh!) This pink polish reminds me of candy and was the perfect pick me up while rehabilitating my nails after taking off those fake nails. Lately, I've been feeling uninspired about my nail designs and last night I attempted to do cheetah print nails. Well, I failed at those and I'll spare you the pictures! It was getting late, so I did a simple stripe design on my nails.

OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous

 Let me just say I've had this color for about a month now without ever breaking it out to do a full manicure. Sure, I've swatched it on a couple nails, but I always ended up taking it off for another color. It should be called Lucerne-tainly Look Deceiving. In the bottle, its a gorgeous shimmery steel/charcoal type of color but on the nail it kind of falls flat. That disappointing to me because I saw tons of gorgeous swatches of it everywhere and it was one of the few colors I truly wanted from OPI's Swiss collection. I also honestly don't think it looks all that great on my skin tone either.

No complaints about the formula or the brush. However, this is coming off today, even though I just applied it this morning. And I wanted it so badly. *shrugs*
