aikolynn: (Khuntoria - Rainy Nights)
Ugh, it's been another hard week at work and my nails took quite the beating between their length, book packing, moving, and all other sorts of fun hands-on things.  The polish changed three times this week due to boxes completely killing my electric green jelly nails (the next post to come).  But, all-in-all, redoing my nails has been quite therapeutic and a great way to de-stress after a long day at work.

So that "treat" I got from Walgreen's immediately went on my nails.  And since I had also gotten my polish in from KBShimmer, I wanted to use that too.  The result--Ocean nails!

Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Cinderella
  • KBShimmer - Shipwreck
Now I'm moving on to posting the jelly nails...

After the ocean nails died I decided to give another go at wearing my electric green jelly polish (I had attempted it, but it was involved in a fatal smearing accident).  I swear, just between swatches and wearing it twice (one and a half?) a good portion of it is gone.   Anywho, I decided to layer some glitter in there for depth. ^^  Sadly these died after a really hard day of packing.

Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Irish Green
  • Lush Lacquer - Flippin Out (previously known as Dippin Dots)

The final (and current) nails of this week involved me testing out Enchanted Polish's Octopus's Garden.  I have to admit I was reluctant to put it on after the fiasco Green Goblin caused (Chelsea is sending me Marge's Blue Beehive to replace my GG!).  However, after [personal profile] these_ordinary_days told me she was wearing OG and that it was gorgeous...I was sold.  I decided to do something really fun since I have length to play with and because I finally got in my dotting tool set.  ^^   Also, to save on my EPs I decided to layer it over black (2 coats) after I made a sizable dent in Across the Universe through building it up.  This polish is so gorgeous and unique!  A deep purple holo that flashes pink and orange?  SOLD.

Colors Used:
  • OPI - Black Onyx (base & dots)
  • OPI - Alpine Snow
  • Enchanted Polish - Octopus's Garden (base)
  • Enchanted Polish - Awesomeness (purple dots)

...I've obviously been listening to that song way too much.  But I think I have made it my unconscious goal in life to own at least one indie polish from every indie polish maker that has captured my attention.  I find myself buying at least one polish when sites I've never bought from before restock--especially if I've heard amazing things about them.  Proof in point is when Candeo Colors did a flash sale--I bought one--and when Rainbow Honey restocked today--I bought one.  It's like a habitual reaction--a very bad one too!  Anywho, I'm excited to get them...especially RH's polish since they have gorgeous packaging.  I am a total sucker for nice packaging--like Pam's whimsies or RH's boxes.  I like pretty things.  And men.

I just got in my orders from Naild'It and Once Upon A Polish today and they've all been swatched so images should be coming long as I get some decent sunlight this weekend (deja vu?  where have we heard this before?).  It'll be a massive influx of swatch posts--Lush Lacquer, Sinful Colors, Crows Toes Cheshire comparisons, Crows Toes and Lush Lacquer over different bases, Whimsical Ideas by Pam, Enchanted Polish, Once Upon A Polish, KBShimmer, Naild'It, and my own frankens are all coming your way soon.  Hopefully.

I also need to get to wearing all these polishes at least once!  So many pretties and so little ti--well, not really.  Oh what to wear next?!  So many choices~

Unworn polishes:
  Once Upon A Polish - Queen of Hearts
  Once Upon A Polish - Snow Queen
  Naild'it - Summer Lovin Melon
  Naild'it - Poison Apple
  Naild'it - Berryeed Treasure
  Sinful Colors - Savage
  Sinful Colors - San Francisco
  Whimsical Ideas by Pam - Kismet's Pajamas
  Whimsical Ideas by Pam - Peanut Butter and Jelly
  Lush Lacquer - Party Rockin
  Lush Lacquer - Birthday Cake

It isn't about "like," but about "love."

When I call you, drunk, and speak of my love for you, all you have to do is listen.
