Kleancolor Chunky Holo Fuchsia 230

When these first started to pop up I think I drooled a little after seeing the bottles. I found a few here and there at local flea markets and for a buck they aren't bad. However the smell of Kleancolor polishes makes it very hard for me to ever want to wear these again. After a few days of wear the smell does fade a little but it's rough. I wore this one by itself and yes it would be better to layer it over a similar base color. I think i did like 5 coats, hah I just didn't have much luck with this polish. Plus the wear on this after just a few days was pretty major since wear is usually something I don't see a lot of. I did do a major chop after wearing this polish so there's a bonus pic at the end where I freshly chopped my nails down back in February. So pretty to look at in the bottle yet not so exciting on the nail.

Orly Oui

Orly Oui is from the 2011 holiday collection. If this seems familiar to you than you have a good memory!  It's the base for the stamping I did for my New Years Eve Mani. This polish is pretty enough that it deserves it's own post. hah yes it only took me almost 9 months to realize that. I Love the purple base of this polish and the golden shimmer sheen it has is an added bonus. I say Oui Oui To this one! It looks great in any lighting!

Oztotic 506

So here's yet another post with pictures that are over 6 months old. I'm happy to say that I've almost posted all of the older posts and that soon all my posts will be a lot more current. Lately it seems as if blogging hasn't been as time consuming and as stressful as it was at one point.  I'm happy to have fallen back into a more regular posting schedule. I'm hoping you guys are equally as happy in seeing more posts from me!

Okay So today the post is Ozotic 506. I wore this back in February when we went to visit some friends out of town. I admit I didn't have much time for a full manicure change so I did layer this over an existing manicure and it's not one of my neatest looking ones. It's rare for me to re-wear a color I've already worn only because I have so many polishes and I'd like to be able to wear as many different ones as I can. With that being said I'm sorry these aren't the greatest swatches. Sometimes looking at older posts I have this urge to want to re do some posts but in the end it was what it was and I can only try to make future posts better.  Okay I'm rambling....  506 is an amazing duo-chrome and in my opinion it has some of the best color shifts out there. Ozotic really hit some home runs with their Multi color shifting duo-chromes line. I'm sad to see them discontinue some of the more popular colors but I am looking forward to what they have planned next. I'm also happy to see a lot more nail polish companies get on the bandwagon because duo-chromes are starting to pop up everywhere. Just wish it was easier to fully capture their beauty in pictures!

Finger Paints Twisted + Matte

This was one of five top coats that Finger Paints released for their 2011 Winter line which were all Flakie effect top coats. This is Twisted which has all of the different flakie colors thrown into one. It is One of the best Flakie polishes I own! Believe me I own a lot. I wore this over Orly's Androgynie. After a day or two of wear I put Essie's Matte about you top coat to give it another look. The last three pictures are with the matte top coat. I really have nothing else to say about this because in this case the pictures really do all the talking. If you do not already own it it has become difficult to find outside of the Ebay world.

Orly Androgynie

Old Swatches... So interesting editing pictures from when my nails were shorter! It seems like I didn't have many posts from when the nails were shorter and I think somehow I lost a little interest in painting them as much when they were shorter. During the time it didn't feel like that but if I go back and look at my history there just weren't that many post with shorter nails... Anyways...

Androgynie is from the Orly 2011 Holiday Collection. I was dying to get my hands on this polish and once I got it on my nails it wasn't so exciting. Mostly because the glitter pieces were hard to fish out. I'd buy this polish again because it is pretty, It appears like it's in a black base but it's actually a very dark murky green. The gold shimmer/glitter in it is very nice. 

Tomorrow I'll show you guys what I layered over this one to make it even more exciting. 
Stay tuned for that!

Spun Sugar Nails

I'm posting this from my phone, in fact I took all the pics and edited them all on the phone. Just testing it out, so forgive me if it's wonky!

Okay I picked up most of the china glaze summer collection on sale at Sally's this weekend. I've seen this spun sugar look around and I figured I'd give it a try. Not bad, next time I'll use less colors since it took a while. I didn't even bother doing my thumb! The Blue was sort of a waste here since it didn't really show up to well, but it's in there.  If you're interested in how to achieve this look just type in spun sugar nails and there's a few tutorial videos out there. For my base I used Cult Nails Nevermore.

Wet n Wild: Buy Me a Drink & Ready To Pounce

Old Swatches... So it's been almost a year since I went on a crazy hunt to try and locate all the polishes that were part of the Wet n Wild On the Prowl fall 2011 collection. I must have gone to approx 15 different stores over a span of 2 weeks to try to get all of them. Well I succeeded and after all the excitement of getting the in the end I didn't really wear any of them except for the two below and I used one of the multi glittered one , Tape Correction, for an accent nail. So in the forever effort of trying to clean out my back log here is a look at the Two I actually swatched from the collection. I don't really have any opinions about these. Thinking back about them I'm kinda Meh about em.  But they do make for excellent Vampy colors.
