Wandering the isles of my local department store I found a lonely Color Club all by it’s lonesome on clearance for $2.00, since I’m a sucker for blues I couldn’t pass it up!
This gem is called Moody Blue, and I’ve honestly never (never!) heard of it, nor can I find any information on it at all. It’s a bright blue cream that is a dupe for Nails, INC Baker Street and Sinful Color Endless Blue. I was so happy to find this, because Baker Street is a lemming of mine.
Formula wise I had a bit of trouble with it, if you don’t let the first coat dry completely it will pull and streak. Once I figured that out, it wasn’t too bad. On the accent nail is OPI Crown Me Already!
Have you ever heard of this color before? What collection was it from?
Bah! Back down to nubbins. I swear stiletto nails just are not strong enough for me, I end up breaking them all off. So to perk me back up again after loosing my cool nails, I decided to go with something silly and bright.
I used China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy (holy crap, I’m so glad a friend made me buy this, it’s amazing in person), and a water decal from Nail Art Fairy
Since I don’t know when to quit, I also framed the entire nails with cheapo hex glitters I bought from JoAnns a while back.
All in all, I am so pleased with this, and while they are not the super awesome stiletto, I think they fit me better.
What do you think?
Whoo!! It’s time to take a peek into the April Nail Art Society subscription bag. This month NAS partnered up with KISS nails, so hit the jump to see what I got!
I know it feels like I haven’t blogged in a year, but if you’ve been following my Twitter (here) you’d know that I’ve been fighting the worst sickness I’ve had in a long time. I’m starting to get back to normal now though, thank goodness.
Now, onto the good stuff! This is Creative Fantasy from the China Glaze Cirque du Soliel: Worlds Away collection. I really want to like this polish. I really do. It’s a perfect color, in fact, it’s the same exact shade as my hair. Unfortunately it’s a jelly, which means spotty coverage and visible nail lines. (VNL, the horror!!)
I had a hard time getting this to work, it seems my bottle is extra watery, and if I didn’t use thin coats it would flood my cuticles. It’s much more watery than any other jelly I’ve worked with, which also lead to the dreaded pulling. If you don’t let this polish dry before the next coat, it’s going to pull the bottom one away.
All that being said, I think the next time I use it I’ll polish it over a white or a purple. I think that will solve most of these issues that I had.
The studs are from my Nail Art Society bag that I got three or so months ago, reviewed here.
Oh my God, Becky, look at her Bondi.
Okay, I’m done, I promise. I am just so stoked with this polish! I eagerly awaited my bottle in the mail and when it got here I immediately used it.
This is Bondi New York NYPD, and it’s one coat (!!), do you hear me? ONE! I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy using it when I saw the brush, it is much smaller than the wide ones I’m used to using, but because of how smooth and thick the formula was I had absolutely no trouble. Seriously, it goes on like melted butter. No flaws, not a streak or bubble to be found.
Once that dried, I decided to spruce it up (though it really didn’t need it), and added a decal from Nail Art Fairy
and the chain that I got from my Nail Art Society bag. I suppose my only complaint (and it’s at best) is that Bondi, while beautiful and flawless is a bit too expensive for my budget, it retails for $15.
ALSO, you may have noticed I decided to try Stiletto nails- peer pressure, I swear!! ^__^ What do you think of them?

It’s that time of the month again!
No, not the time that I try and inhale all the chocolate in my house, but Nail Art Society review time!
This month was all about accoutrements! No nail polish, but lots of bits and bobs to make some neat 3d nail art with. Hit the jump to see what I got!
I actually gasped when I saw this polish. This is from OPI’s newest Euro collection called OPI… Eurso Euro and if you don’t have this one, run (right now) and grab it. It’s a perfect indigo. An indigo to end all indigo polishes. It’s fantastically pigmented, and a tad bit purple leaning and I love it to bits already.
This is two coats, just because I’m obsessive, but I could have gotten away with only using one.
I should have left well enough alone, but I went ahead and attached a small 3D crystal studded bow to it, though I do like it.
What do you think?
I got some AMAZING water decals from ChaChaCovers, and I had to use them as soon as I got them.
Originally they were full decals, but I chopped them up because I thought they would look fabulous over the new Urban Outfitters polish I got called Mystic. Mystic is a gorgeous blue polish with orange to green flakies floating around in it, I wanted it to be a jelly, but unfortunately it dries to an odd satin/matte finish.
What do you think of this mani?
I really love all the rainbow manicures that are out now, so I wanted to try it myself.
First I painted on French Quarter For Your Thoughts, then started dotting away! I kept my friend Roy G. Biv in mind while dotting, so here are the colors I used in order: China Glaze Hey Sailor, OPI Red Lights Ahead, Where? OPI on Collins Ave, China Glaze Papaya Punch, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, Sally Hansen Lickety-Split Lime, China Glaze Gaga for Green, Barry M Cyan, Sally Hansen Fairy Teal, SpaRitual Undercurrent, and last but not least, SpaRitual Heliotrope!
Whooo! That was a handful! What do you think of the doticure??
Whoooo!! I love Fall. It is by far my most favorite time of the year, and I look forward to it all year. With this mani I wanted to recreate a manicure that looked like a bonfire, or as close to it as possible!
I started off with a base coat of OPI We’ll Always Have Paris, followed by sponging of I’m Suzi & I’m a Chocoholic, Bullish on OPI, Red Lights Ahead… Where?, A Roll in the Hague, Take the Stage and China Glaze’s Electrify.
And, since I don’t know when to quit, I matte-ified it:
Which version do you like better?
