Buffy the Violet Slayer

 Guess who's been stepping their game up? Wet n Wild! Thats right, this super affordable drugstore brand has me really excited about their 2011 Summer nail polish collections I spotted on Nouveau Cheap. So in anticipation I went to Walgreens and picked up one of their new Fast Dry polishes, Buffy the Violet Slayer. What I love about these is that they are all some variation of TV show names: Buffy the Violet Slayer, Party of 5 glitters, Ebony Hates Chris, Gray's Anatomy, etc. Call it cheesy if you want, but these names made me crack a smile. 

Buffy the Violet Slayer is a gorgeous deep purple polish that is opaque with one coat. I did two cause thats how I roll, but you can get away with one. I also accidentally put the Fast Dry formula to the test. For some reason I put Seche on all my nails except for my right thumb nail. I noticed the next morning that it didn't have any topcoat. Whats so awesome about that? Well I painted my nails about 15 mins before I got into bed and there were no sheet marks whatsoever on that nail! I'm definitely going to try out more Wet n Wild Fast Dry polishes!

You know the spiel about how these types of purple polishes freak out my camera so these look way more blue than they should.

Ulta Alter Ego

I wore this back when the sunshine was abundant and I had every intention of taking sun pics of this polish. You see, Ulta's Alter Ego really shines in the sun (pardon the pun) and that's when it is at its best. However, its been a rainy, dark couple of days in North Texas so I only have indoor and shady outdoor pics. This is a REALLY pretty polish though, it has gold running through it's metallic teal base. Two coats was all I needed to get bottle color. Ulta is always having a sale on their brand of cosmetics so if you want this, I'm  pretty sure you can catch a good deal.

By the way, this is random, but I wonder how Ulta came up with the name for this polish? I don't see any link between this shade and the name "Alter Ego". Maybe if it was apart of a collection I would understand? Oh well. *shrugs*

New on the Scene: Sally Hansen Crackles

 Sally Hansen is jumping on the crackle trend and bringing us new crackle polishes in some interesting looking colors. I'm feeling pretty optimistic about these because Sally Hansen did us right with their super cute, affordable versions of Minx. Thier nail polish strips definitely get an A in my book, so lets see what Sally Hansen has for us this time!

Here's the press release:

WHAT IT IS: The boldest new nail lacquer effect for nails

WHAT IT DOES: Turns any nail color into nail drama. Crackle your color-it is the simplest way to customize nails- just brush on and create a design that is never the same twice.
Start with your favorite nail color, let it dry and apply one coat of Crackle Overcoat. The crackle effect appears as it dries. Every nail will be different, every nail will be dramatic.
