lippmann bad romance

zoya nova

i'm all blinged out today. astra as a pedi but i'll spare you feet pics.
i tried out BR over black for a mani. i like BR...but i think i should have used 2 coats to get more sparkle because the glitter isn't quite the glittery, shiny, crushed glass sparkle like Red Ruby Slippers. i had to really work to get the glitter off the brush too. i wish Deb had spent more time on the's like she stopped mid-way and then just released it w/o trying it out first.

i adore essie body language...i really do. even if it's a pain to get streak-free. i kick myself for not buying a back-up when i saw it in the ULTA clearance section. i do wish i could find an awesome application twin though.
streaky in 2 coats...needs 3 or a thick opaque ridge-filler as a base. wears really well.

opi suzi says feng shui

As you can see in these looks crazy different on me depending on the light. it's a dusty peacock blue but the lower the light the more teal it starts to look. i freaking adore it...i was hesitant on this color for the longest time because i thought it would be to similar to a just groovy sort of color but it's not!
i think it's pretty wearable since it's got the dusty quality to it.
smooth formula...easy application...great wear.

maybelline hip huggers

this is an old one. i found the entire denim collection recently at the Dollar Tree. it included hotties like zip fly and jean jacket.
application was ok but the brush was too mop-like for me. however, it went on smooth and wore for 5 days. pretty impressive for an old drug store polish!

American Apparel Mouse.

I think Illamasqua and RBL had a bastard love child...this polish is amazing in application and it's smooooth. I had 0 flowed nicely and wore well.
it's very similar to a few of the taupes out there but i don't have a twin in my stash.
