Coconut Crushed

Scented nail polishes are usually awesome, but sometimes you end up with a horrifically scented one. When I saw Revlon's 'coconut crush' on the shelf at a CVS, I thought it would smell as it said, like coconuts. Wrong. The scent is hard to put into words, but I would advise against it if you like the color. You can probably find a similar one somewhere else.

I tried to cover the smell with a few layers of 'party of five glitters'.

Newsies themed nails : Round 2

I've been in a very Newsies mood lately, so I thought it would be fun to do another alcohol transfer. This time, my impatience got the better of me, so a little bit did not stick, and even one part is upside down! Oh well. Base is a color workshop nude.

Shown with my Newsies cassette tape.

Rite Aid has a new set from City Color Workshop. They seem to not have names, unfortunately. L.A. Colors black, and Sally Hansen 'in the spotlight' accompany the shimmery hot pink.

Stripes seem to be a favorite of mine lately.

Happy Valentine's Day! ♥

I wanted to stay away from using pink and red, so I decided to use blue kiwi scented from Hot Topic, Divas purple, as base, and accented with L.A. Colors white and blue glitter, and Pure Ice 'silver mercedes'.

Rite Aid had a clearance on Petites brand. I picked up 'empress'.

Purple Sprinkles and Gabrielle

A while back, Zoya was doing a promotion through facebook to get 20,000 likes, and in the end people would receive 3 bottles of polish for free. Just pay shipping. One that I chose was 'gabrielle'.

Sephora's new Hello Kitty line is so adorable. I chose to get 'purple sprinkles' which I layered over a Claire's former layer polish called 'stardaze' which I decided to shake up.

I just got Revlon's 'not so blueberry' a couple days ago. Probably my favorite of the scented polishes I own.

While at Rite Aid this past Tuesday, I saw a display of new Wet 'n Wild fast dry polishes. Very happy! I picked up 'Ebony Hates Chris' and 'Party of Five Glitters'.

Two coats of the black, and one super thick coat, and one normal coat of the glitter. Love them both.

Monster High Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, and Cleo De Nile

Finally gotten around to uploading the last of the Monster High polishes!

Clawdeen needed three coats for me. Accented with gems.

Used two coats of Draculaura. Konad and Bundle Monster'ed images on. The light pink is Maybelline's 'bubble pink', while the black is Color Workshop (from a set sold at Wal-Mart during Christmas).

Lastly, Cleo De Nile took two coats, with a coat of Confetti (sold at CVS here) 'ice ice baby' and accented with blue gems.

I hope that one day another line of Monster High polishes come out featuring Ghoulia, Holt, Jackson and Duce. I imagine they would be awesome. Until then, later days.
