I didn’t wear anything last week, and honestly I’m not sure if I remember what I wore a couple of weeks ago…. so let’s just say that I loved it and moved on….

Folly is glossy, raspberry red creame. When I saw it, I instantly picked it up (Thank goodness for Walgreen’s 99 cent sale), I never walk away from a pink tone…This Polish is part of the Bright to Buff collection, and I have a few of the polishes in the collection: Endless Blue and GoGoGirl, so naturally I wanted to add (FYI: I’m on the lookout for Pistache !). I loved this polish from the moment I put it one…. well until I put that top coat on it…but that’s for later.nail2

The application of Folly was easy,  In order for me  to get full opacity I applied two coats,  with one coat it looks good and I was happy with it, but I had slight VPL on some nails,  but with two coats the color is richer and more beautiful.  Folly is really pretty and bright but it was very hard to catch it and on the pictures it looks little bit brighter. Now the formula is Sinful Colors, some of them are hit or miss, but this particular one was smooth like butter, and it dried really quickly; which is always nice because without fault … every single time I do my nails I have to go to the bathroom 30 seconds after I finish the last nail.

Someone described this color as “squishy” not exactly sure that that means, but the person that complemented me was six…but I will admit that it has a sort of Barbie-esque quality to it that I enjoy. If your Walgreens/Walmart is anything like the ones near me, you aren’t really gonna find every color that you want/need at one store and you might not even find the color at all, so you have to look for dupes, and since it seems horribly unfair for me to suggest one that costs more than the original; but it seems that Sinful Colors has taken care of that for you with All The Rage (which I am pretty sure that I own). So you can get pretty much an identical look with either shade.dupes

 

Tsuki, has seriously been sticking close by me since the whole “post biopsy…oops I hit  a nerve now your in a ton of pain fiasco” happened, so she’s refused to move… so (parts of her ) in most of the pictures… either she loves me a lot or she’s in “Diva Mode” I’m hoping it’s the former. She doesn’t seem to mind, she is her favorite color after all.

This polish is an absolute gem and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the color what’s so ever. So Folly uoi get a  10 out of 10!  Folly retails for $1.99 and (the topper) Amazing Glaze retails for $5.49

Until Next Time…

Last week I wore Essie’s Marshmallow, and although I’m still super disappointed that it was my perfect polish it was still a breeze to come off.. my feelings are still hurt about this polish …so I don’t want to talk about it.

I know that these post normally come out on Tuesday’s but real life happened and post procedure pain kept me drugged up and in bed and doing my nails was the very last thing on my mind…. but I

1Bikini Bottoms, an awesome in-your-face bright magenta pink holo with a bit of blue shimmer. I’m a pink girl at heart, so of course I had to show you this beauty! I love love Bikini Bottoms. The holo in this is much better than what showed up for the photos. Did I mention I love it?I loved this, purchased it, forgot about it for months and months then found it and fell in love again. This polish looks great EVERYWHERE, in the shade, in the sunlight, in the shower…everywhere. I always gets load and loads of complements when I wear this brand of polish (and always direct them where to go when they asked where I got it)

I have been very vocal about this brand because everything is so easy, the ordering, the the quick shipments, to the application and the removal I have never had a problem with this brand. Two good even coats and your favorite top coat and your done and ready to sparkle. This particular polish looks much deeper in low light, but it’s a stunner nonetheless.

This polish is an absolute gem and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the color what’s so ever. Bikini Bottoms get’s top scores with 10 out of 10! If you don’t own this polish, head on over the the website and get it you won’t be sorry. I will especially treasure this as ILNP is going through major redesigns as well as bottle design (and I’m excited about the new direction that Barbara is taking her company, so now really is the time if you want it in the “classic bottle with the old logo.

Tsuki, as  documented on this blog LOVES pink and she literally grabbed it and refused to let it go, she held on to it like it was her little baby, and I totally understand I nearly had a heart attack when the bottle fell on the floor, so I had to snap her as is… she wouldn’t even look me in the eye (she knew she was doing wrong)… if you look closely you can see her fuzzy pink ball that she always has with her.

Bikini Bottoms retails for $10.00.

I still really miffed by last weeks pick, I was so confused about how my manicure turned out. that I went and purchased two bottles from two separate stores and the results are the same… why is a seemly matte nail polish showing up as a satin finish on my nail? Do you think that it has something to do with the fact that I used a  base coat? And yes I did end up using a top coat, but only after it was completely dried with the satin finish… Now I won three bottles of a polish I’m not all that happy about… I’m seriously thinking about contacting Sinful Colors and seeing what the heck is going on. But no matter what Sinful Colors is still  one of my favorite brands of nail polish! The are a good price and very good quality polish (for the most part). I would highly recommend them to anyone who hasn’t tried them

DSC02713This week I wanted a brush start and low and behold I ended up with another neon color!
Innocent is a bright pop of Chartreuse–a light-medium yellow and green hue–with a creamy finish ( isn’t Chartreuse a fun word? …. say it with me Chartreuse…) This color is perfect for the warm weather that is upon (some of) us and not only is it’s eye catching it will look great on anyone.

The application of this polish was fairly easy, the polish was a tad bit on the thick side, so youDSC02709 should be a little careful as it has a tendency to pool if you have too much on the brush, but one coat of this polish and I was done, no need for a second coat, You know how one coat 20140506_110812_resizedpolishes excite me; and I didn’t have to worry.  And as you can tell the color on the nail is exactly the color in the bottle, so you shouldn’t have to worry that the same seems a bit off once you apply it to the nail. Another think that I observe while wearing this polish is that there is no subtle difference in the color based on the light that you’re in… it stays pretty consistent.

Once again I pulled out my nifty little dotting tool and created a simple looking contrast dots on the ring finger to complete the look. The manicure was then topped with Seche Ultra-V topcoat

DSC02725The application of the polish was smooth and I had no issues at all with the brush. Overall I was really impressed with this weeks pick This polish get’s a 10 out of 10! Ladies…run… run and go get this polish!
