Happy St. Patrick’s Day Irish Lovers!

I am fighting a nasty little cold today. Thank you to my dear hubby for sharing! LOL The part that I like the least about it is that I decided not to go to the nursing home to visit Mom for their party today. I just don’t think it’s a great idea to expose her or anybody else.

But I made it to class Friday before I really started feeling bad. I thought I’d share a few crazy antics with you!

And the outfit and the mani up close. The nails are indie Chirality Nail Polish Katydid (2 coats) topped with Pure Ice Emerald Crush. I’ve had the combo on my nails (no base coat, but buffed nails, and my topcoat I get locally) since Thursday night. They are still doing really well!

 

And just a few that I liked I came across on the internet!

And don’t forget to check my SoFlaJo Facebook Page today for giveaways of SoFlajo full-sized bottles of Fields of Clover Nail Polish!

WIN ME!

New Revlon Moon Candy Nail Polish with Swatches

ATTN: VERY Picture Heavy!

 

Friday while I was at Walgreen looking for the new WnW Saved by the Nail collection (which I didn’t find), I came across one I’ve been waiting several months to see – Revlon Moon Candy duos. I shop (stalk?) that store often for polish so the cosmetic mgr and I always compare manis and talk lacquer. She said they just put the display out the night before so I was able to raid it for one of each color. And I haven’t bought hardly any polish in months, so the eight $1 coupons she gave me was also a nice little bump to get me to buy the whole set! If you have OCD let me apologize now for the way I took them out of the rack – sorry! :{

 

Yeah I did a skittle mani last night with them. Some are AH-Mazing. Some are ok. The undies are funny ’cause some are 1 coaters, others 2. Same with the Flakies so I went ahead with 2 on each. Slow drying but some are oh so pretty! I also had to use a coat of Gelous over my usual TC. The Flakies weren’t overly rough but I wanted to smooth them out entirely. (Posche basecoat and SH Insta-Dry 110 Clear for topcoat.)

I wouldn’t go with some of the bases they did, but I’m showing them in their combinations. Also note that none of the bases have names! Some of these were easier to photograph than others, even after  up to and over 20 attempts each! Also note that some of the labels are peeling (makes for terrible pix IMO) because there are “directions” on the back that you pull the label off to read. I wanted to show you exactly what my bottles looked like while I was using them, but I will be putting a piece of tape over each one to keep them from fraying even worse!

 

Let’s start with Satellite. The base is a wine red in my opinion. This combination works pretty well together. In the store I was afraid the base was brown, and that’s not a color I wear, so I was pleasantly surprised on this one. The base on this was 2 coats.

This is the other pinky-peachy flakie in the set, Supernova. I don’t know exactly what I was expecting, but I don’t think it was this. Worn over Revlon’s choice of grey one-coat base, I think it really detracts from what this one could be. I’ll definitely being trying this one again over something else!

Cosmic reminds me of camoflouge. This dark olive green base was also a 2-coater. I like this one and they work well together too.

This is a gorgeous combination that I would wear again! Galactic is over a really deep navy blue base and the flakies come out teal colored on the nail. One coat of underwear was all this one took.

 Moondust really fooled me! It’s gorgeous blue flakies on the nail. It’s over a one-coat black base. I want to try this one over other colors!

Milky Way was my disappointment. Look at how awesome it is in the bottle. It just didn’t transcend that way on the nail. It may have been because Revlon chose to go with a deep grey for underwear, and it just sits there. I’m pretty sure this one would pop with the right base color. Just one coat for the base on this one, too.

Being that I’m a purple girl, I thought Orbit was going to be THE one for me. It is beautiful, but I really had to work at it to get the flakies out of the bottle. This one was the reason I decided to use two applications of flakies on each nail. I had to shake it well and stir the brush around inside of it to pick up the particles. It is pretty on though, over one coat of purple base.

Universe also had me fooled from the start. Again in the store the base looked brown. But I would call it a deep brick red and it’s really pretty. The flakies on this one work great. The base was one coat.

And last night I was posting these to my facebook page so you could get a quick sampling of them. So here they are in case you’re not following my page – but you should be! The link is up there ^^. 🙂

  

I think these were pretty expensive and I wouldn’t have bought them all if it wasn’t for the discounts I got at the store because I actually did only pick up half of them till I was told I could use the coupons at the counter for each one. I wish CVS had a cosmetic counter since the stores don’t carry all the same brands (we don’t have Rite-Aid) in South Florida.

So – do you want to run right out and buy them all? Or are there only certain ones you’re interested in? The bottle total weight is .26Fl Oz/7.68ml. How does that compare to the price of indies in your opinion?

Win Year of the Dragon Polish in Nail Network Giveaway

I have to say blog followers are awesome. All of you! A couple weeks ago my friend Chelsea from The Nail Network was so close to 600 followers and she was hoping to hit that magic number so she could have a giveaway. Since I knew her prize was TWO of the new color changing polishes from my Year of the Dragon collection, I did a quick little blog asking if we couldn’t reach that number and get the party started. WHOA did y’all ever respond!

 

The Nail Network is now nearing the 700 mark! And with just days left in her giveaway, I bet the numbers just keep on growing. She is giving away BOTH The Conjuror AND Pendragon to ONE lucky winner! You can see swatches on my shop page.
