Nail Polish Lottery Club – Week 13


April is 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day so I decided to forgo about the number this week and try one of my untried blues. Actually for the entire month I will be using various untried blues as I will be participating in Paint It Blue for more information checkout and be sure to use the Instagram tag #bluenailsforautism


Since I’m doing double duty this week I wanted to mention a nail polish that  purchased last year from one of my favorite indie polish makers Missi Barry of Different Dimensions, she created this awesome polish with proceeds going charities supporting Autism. Not only is the polish super cute, but it glows in the dark!


For details on Autism, or Light It Up Blue, here are a few links for you to check out.

So now for the untried (Blue) Polish this week…………


(you have the option of using 2+8+1=11 and if you don’t have 11, then use 1+1=2.)

Nail Polish Lottery Club – Week 11 & 12


I Red a Good Book Today by Wet n Wild (Mega last)


I was super busy last week working on some freelance projects and I didn’t get a change to do my fingernails (which was great I was able to give my nails a little break so I buffed out some ridges and worked on my cuticles), but I did do my toe nails with the color. I love reds, it’s a color that everyone can wear it’s a very sultry and sexy color but I don’t always like it on my fingernails, so this came at a perfect time, I was able to be sexy and sultry under my socks! (excuse the toes….)DSC02042

I loved the wide brush on this polish, I have wide nail beds (on both my toe and fingernails) so it’s pretty much one stroke, no mess!


Defiantly a 9/10

Now on to this week!! VIDEO TIME!!!! (totally didn’t happen this week either)


(I went with the 9+7=16 option )

I was really excited about this color, and really looking forward to using it, I figured it was the perfect Spring/Easter time shade. I feel in love with this shade a soon as I put it on my nails, the formula was awesome, Two coats and done! The color in the bottle is pretty true to what you get on the nail.


After a spending a week with this color, I noticed that my tips were getting a bit worn so instead repainting them I decided to fancy those sucker up, using another Sinful Colors Shade Frenzy; which I purchased last fall. I think the combination together looks fantastic.  As my friend Christy said, “Love! Looks like a fancy Easter egg!” That’s exactly the look I was going for!

Nail Polish Lottery Club – Week 10

Once upon a time there lived an  young girl with 10 fingers and 10 toes who longed for the perfect blue nail polish….. did she find it?


(and because I don’t have 128 untried polishes I simply added 12 + 8 = 20)

Nail Polish Lottery Club – Week 9

Ever see a new nail polish collection and get super excited about it? You can’t wait to get your pretty littler hands on those polishes; and later on your nails? Then that fateful moment happens when the polish is on your nails, and the sky opens up and the angels rejoice…..then you look down on your nails to look at the beauty and the wonderment and realize you absolutely HATE it!!


(and because I don’t have 103 untried polishes I simply added 10 + 3 = 13)

The Nail Polish Lottery Club creates a fun way in which to go through your unused/untried nail polish by selecting a random number each week on Mondays at 8:00 p.m. Based on members’ spreadsheet/database lists, whatever number corresponds on the list with the random number chosen, is the color to try, wear, and post or v-blog about!

This was the first time I painted my nails                                             Second attempt…. even nail art couldn’t help this mess

I love sinful colors, it’s a close second behind my all time favorite polish, which is China Glaze. I lovingly refer to Sinful Colors and the sluttier, cheaper sister of CG. I had no issues putting on this polish: application is always smooth but this polish was a bit on the thin side so I needed to use 3 coats instead of the normal 2 that I use… and even then it still seemed a little translucent (you can sort of tell on the second picture). As for the color I will not so lovingly call this “porn star pink” (This color is prominently featured on the TV show Gypsy Sisters) 

The first time I did my nails (Monday night) I had an instant hate for the color…. by Tuesday afternoon it was off my nails. Thursday I had a change of heart and decided to try again, I figured if I put a little argyle nail art as an accent I would like it more…. nope! Still didn’t like it . Now let me just say that I love pink, and I own a lot of pink polishes, but being African American I have to be very cognizant that not every shade of pink is flattering with my coloring and this was one of them. That being said I will save this for the summer and try again…for some odd reason I tend to be a little bit more flexible with the colors that I use on my toes.

Sinful Colors always gets a solid 8.5, but the color was about a 4

Honestly next week’s draw can’t come fast enough…until next time
