Rainbow Favorites: Day 4 Blue Sinful Colors Why No/ Day 5 Purple Confetti Happy Birthday

It's official, I suck.
 I completely forgot to post yesterday for blue so I'm going to do both blue and purple.

Here's my blue.  Sinful Colors Why Not.  If you can't tell I've loved the crap out of this polish, its was my go to pedi color last summer, and it traveled with me quite a bit.  I actually think the lovely polish drippings got there after taking it on the plane with me to go visit my brother on his base, and I didn't close it all the way.

And here's my purple! Confetti Happy Birthday! Love, love, love, love, love.... This was the first polish I ever bought a back up of.  It has an almost jelly like finish and the the glass flecks flash gold and pink depending on the light. 

Only one more post to go and then I'm done with this challenge!

Rainbow Favorites: Day 3 Green China Glaze Westside Warrior

Hey guys! I was SO excited to be able to pull out this baby again. Westside Warrior is my go to dark green, because it's flippin gorgeous! This is 2 coats, no topcoat. 

 This is one of those polishes that I pull out when I need a pick me up. Whenever I'm lonely and missing  my polish enabler/sorta boyfriend, who is in the army, I pull this out.  Green is his favorite color and since Westside Warrior is an "army" green color it fits perfectly, and really helps when he's not around. Sounds weird I know, but the little things definitely  do make things a lot better, even if it's just me painting my nails. 
 I should try doing a camo with this shouldn't I?!

Rainbow Favorites-Day 3 Yellow Confetti Margarita Senorita

Happy Tuesday! 

 Today's yellow is Margarita Senorita by Confetti.  To be honest the only reason why this one is my favorite is because of how no fuss to apply this is, 3 coats and it seems to self level unlike the other yellows I have in my collection. 

I've become obsessed with yellow polish lately but I CAN NOT stand applying it because of the streakyness, and all the bubbles I seem to get when I'm not patient enough to wait long enough between coats. 
I know I haven't been say to much lately when I post...I have no idea why but there's really not much for me to say.  Although I am SO excited to post tomorrow's green! I honestly can't wait to wear it again, it's been a while.  I don't know if I'm the only person who feels so obligated to wear all of my untrieds before I pull out a beloved polish again.  Almost guilty and I have no idea why...

Rainbow Favorites-Day 2 Sinful Colors Summer Peach

Happy Monday! Today's day is orange, and I have Sinful Colors Summer Peach to show you. I've never been a huge fan of orange, but lately I've been rocking orange a lot more than I thought I ever would.

Summer Peach is a super super bright neon orange color, it's a pain to apply though, so this is 1 coat white polish, and 3 coats of Summer Peach.

Rainbow Favorites: Day 1- Red OPI An Affair In Red Square

Bec started this cute challenge that I'll be doing all this week, that's basically rainbow themed! Everyday(starting with red) we wear our favorite polish that's the color of the day.
Quick. Sweet. To the point.  Not the best photo I've ever taken.

My hands down favorite for red is OPI An Affair in Red Square. 2 coats. I've always had a little problem with this polish since I bought it a few years ago, always a bit goopy but still can flood my cuticles. This is my go to red, I wore this for an entire summer when I worked at a camp, wore it for my graduation, and even my best friend wore it prom. 

Check out all the other bloggers participating!

China Glaze Smoke and Ashes

2 coats
Happy Thursday! I hope everyone's week has been going well so far! Today, I have one of the polishes I picked up during the sale at Sally's last week.  China Glaze Smoke and Ashes, I know I'm a little late on the band wagon with the Hunger Games Collection, because at first I wasn't all amazed by them. BUT, they were on sale for $1.65 and I couldn't pass them up!

Holy Crap.  How much more gorgeous could Smoke and Ashes get?
The glass flaked in this are stunning. The blue-black mixed with the glass flakes in this is so elegant, and stunning!

Who's ready for Friday??

Nubar Black and White Polka Dot

Happy Wednesday!

Nubar Black and White Polka Dot...why didn't I own the two of them before? They're gorgeous! But, they've also put me on my first official no buy.  With my bestie in town(aka the enabler) I've spent so much money, we went everywhere when he was here, Sally's, Sephora, basically anywhere and everywhere that I'd be able to find some good polish.  I took advantage of the 50% off the already 50% red tag sale at Sally's and got all but 3 of the Hunger Game Collection and a couple of Magnetix, so I have a lot to blog about! Football Mini Camp has started, so I'll also probably have some football nails that I'll be showing you too.

2 coats of White Polka Dot and Black Polka dot over Sinful Colors Summer Peach. I had quite a bit of trouble trying to pull out the larger hex glitter in White Polka Dot.  It's super hard to see over the orange, but I only managed to get a couple on my pointer finger and only one on my ring finger. Next time I'll probably place them indivdually using a dotting tool and pulling the large glitter straight off brush. 

Black Polka Dot gave me no trouble and it looks fabulous! I can't wait to try this over a nude color later this week. 

Have a great rest of the week!

SOPI- It's Real 18k Topcoat

It's been a long time since I posted! I've been super busy lately though, I graduated, and my friend came up from Miami to see me, and couldn't really find anytime to write any posts.

SOPI It's Real 18k Topcoat. This is one coat over ChG Westside Warrior.

I love this so much, I do think it was worth $30, especially when you can justify getting it like I did, as my graduation present to myself.  Although I do wish the gold flakes were a little bit bigger, as you can see they're super tiny, so they don't show up very well on anything that isn't dark.

I added a black light topcoat when my friends and I decided to go putt-putt...I love how you can still see the gold flakes! Except I did realize how awful I am at just quickly apply a topcoat...look at those flooded cuticles!

Have a great week!

ASBMF: Design of your choice.

First off, I need to let this out.

I'M GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL.  Today, as in an hour and a half ago, I finished my last. day. of. school. EVER! I can not believe that its all over, I never believed anyone when they said high school would go by so quickly! I remember sitting in bio freshmen year and my teacher, Mr. Bernthal congratulated us on finishing 1 quarter of high school and only had 15 more to go.
 Commencement is going to be on June 10th and I can't wait!
I found my graduation dress, which is a HUGE pain since my high school is one of the only public high school in the nation that sticks to a very traditional long white dresses for the girls, and dark suits, and red ties for the boys.  I ended up finding a dress from JC Penney's which is a wedding dress, but it so gorgeous and only cost $75! I have to wear a shrug because it's strapless and that's a huge no-no (no bare shoulder for the huskie's commencement ceremony!)
All done gushing about graduating! On to the polish!

I'm also completely done with the April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge! What??? I actually completed a challenge?? Y'all I'm shocked! LOL! I loved doing this so much! Thanks to Hannah who created it!

For this I wanted stripes! My base is Wet n' Wild Carribean Frost, I forgot all about this polish until my friend gave me her bottle because she didn't like it all that much, then I remembered I fell in love with it the summer before my 8th grade! I can't believe I haven't worn it since! Carribean Frost is a gorgeous frosty emerald- turquoise color. Love. 2 coats and it was perfect, none of those weird streaky lines you can get from some frosts. For my stripes I used China Glaze Four Leaf Clover, and Confetti Margarita Senorita, because green and pale yellow are my favorite for spring!
