LA Colors: Color Craze Gel

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today to show you guys some new polish that I picked up.

I have heard some people talking about the LA Colors Gel polishes and how they loved them. I spotted them at Ross over the weekend.

I found a three pack of a coral, a mint, and a hot pink. They all have no names.

I decided to do a mani featuring the hot pink shade, because we all know I love pink, and using an accent of SpaRitual in Burst. I did three coats by itself, and a middle finger accent. Application wasn't the best, a little bit lumpy.

I love the look, but the package says that it wears like polish and looks like gel. I dislike that. It means that it will just look shiny, but still chip just as easy. Also, to me, before adding a topcoat, it looked no more shiny than any other nail polish. If anything, it looked less shiny.

Maybe it is just me, but I am not super impressed by these, but still neat to have in my collection anyways. If anything I have said hasn't swayed you from wanting to try these, check your local Ross to see if they have these. I picked them up for $5.99 for the three pack.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

SpaRitual: Four Lovlies

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today to show you some four lovely SpaRitual polishes that I recently picked up.

Last Sunday I went to TJMaxx with my mom. I noticed they got in some new polishes. Lately their polish section, in my opinion, has not been that great. they got in some great ones this time. They had a great display of tons of SpaRitual polishes.

I love their polishes. I have only had the pleasure of trying one before buying this group, but I loved the one that I had. I was excited to get to try some more.

Here is a collage of the four that I picked out!

The first one that I have up to show you is called Intellect. This is a medium blue polish packed with purple shimmer. I did three coats by itself. I love this color, the photo doesn't do it justice at all.

Next up, this one is called North Star. This is a duochome polish that goes from a purpley grey to pink and purple, and it is full of pink shimmer. I did three coats by itself. Colors like this never cooperate with my camera, so sorry for the photo. Plus bubbles are because it is like 1000 degrees where I live right now.

Third up, this one is called Burst. This is a glitter topper micro pink and medium red glitters in a sheer redish-pink base. I did three coats by itself. It works great on its own with multiple coats or put it over another color to give a kick.

The last one that I have to show you is called Barefoot. This is a beige colored polish filled with micro holo, pink, and red glitters. I did three coats by itself. I love the pop of color the glitter gives to this subtle color.

All of these polishes applied fantastically. There was a little mess, but I am not a professional so some mess is gonna happen anyways. I love the variety of colors that I picked up, from glitters to sheer to duchrome. These polishes can be found at TJMaxx for $3.99 each. Usually these can retail upwards of $20 each, so you are getting an awesome deal. If you like any that you see, or already love this brand before this post and want more, better hurry to your local TJMaxx before these polishes leave the shelves and they are on to more OPI or China Glaze.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer in Work of Tart

*Product Purchased Myself

Hey guys!

I am back today with a great polish that maybe some of you have thought of picking up in the past, or that you already own and love.

I love Sally Hansen, have featured them often on my blog. Today I have a polish from their texture line of polishes. This one comes from not the Sugar Coat line, but their sister line, Sugar Shimmer.

This one is called Work of Tart. This is a great minty-teal gritty texture filled with subtle golden shimmer. I did three coats throughout.

On my ringer finger, I did an accent of China Glaze Don't Be A Flake. This is a glitter topper  filled with rose gold, black, sky blue, and holo hex glitters. I did one coat.

Both polishes went on great and wear pretty well. Lasted a day until chipping which is great for me. Usually polishes on my nails chip within a day, so these are pretty good.

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat I believe isn't still sold in stores but you can spot them at places like TJMaxx and Ross for around $2. China Glaze sells usually for around $8-$9 in salons and $3-$4 in places like TJMaxx.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

Vintage Polishes Day!: Revlon Oldies

*Polishes Received in Swap

Hey guys!

Today I have some wonderful vintage polishes to show you all that I received in one of the recent swaps that I did.

I got a number of vintage polishes, but the ones that I have to show you here are two of the Revlon ones that came in my package.

These are quite old, I don't even know how old but I can only assume at least from the 90s.

The one on the left is called Lavendare and the one on the right is called Ultra Violet. 

Lavendare is on my middle and pinky fingers. Ultra Violet is on my pointer and ring fingers. 

Lavendare is a dusty purple polish filled with shimmer. I did three coats with topcoat.

Ultra Violet is a gorgeous purple-blue packed with lilac shimmer. The color shift comes out best in bright light. I did three coats with topcoat.

As for the application, they were pretty good for being however told they may be. Not chunky and no pulling. I can't wait to try out the other vintage polishes I got in this box and obtain other ones. I only seriously got into nail polish a few years ago, so no vintage polishes in my stash before this. The oldest ones I have are some Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polishes, in the larger bottles before they changed to mini bottles.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you guys later, bye!
