Claire's Mood Polish-Daring/Innocent, Rimmel-Out There and OPI-Red Shatter

I am not a fan of the innocent/yellow color of this mani, but watching colors change is fun.  I'm going to have to try it again in the winter so it will be grey most of the time!

 Not the best picture but I took Sinful Colors-Nirvana and added Cover Girl-City Lights and made this pretty polish.  Application sucked of course since my bottle of Nirvana was horrible, but I like my franken enough to keep!  And maybe share :)

Bambi and Jesse's Girl-Beach Baby

I'm not sure why I'm posting this, I never got a good picture, but this was way neon pink.  Crazy!  I felt like I had to be in a certain mood to wear it.  It's the only neon I own, maybe there will be another added after this first adventure with them.

Sinful Colors-Folly

Folly is a beautiful color.  Not much to say!  I do wish I could do this braid myself, I love the look of a fish tail!

Summer Rolls, Sally Hansen HD-Hi-Res and OPI Black Shatter

This is the summer of summer rolls.  So addicting, and healthy!  Hi-Res really does glow from within as the first picture shows.  I added OPI Black Shatter because I'm an addict, especially to the black ones.  I have the China Glaze, OPI and Sally Hansen black crackle/shatter.  Back-ups :)

Essie-Coat Azure and Netflix Confessions

Why yes, I do love Gene Simmons Family Jewels.  I have no explanation or defense.  I just do.  Just like I love Coat Azure, I was surprised by how this blooms and shimmers on the nail.  Much better out of the bottle!

Sally Hansen-The Real Teal

Amazing, amazing color.  This photo is color accurate, quit staring and go pick it up!

Sinful Colors-Seaweed and Sally Hansen Crackle-Ink Splatter

Why did I show this horrible last photo?  I did not shake the bottle before I did my right hand, but I sure did for my left.  Makes a huge difference, doesn't it?  Seaweed is a gorgeous color, I liked it on more than I thought I would.  Favorited, in fact!

Revlon-Cherries In The Snow

I thought this would look better on me than it did.  I had this color as a lipstick in high school and loved it.  I got this on major sale, not sure if I'm going to keep it or not.  And below...well, it cracked me up when I saw this on a bathroom stall.

OPI-Bogota Blackberry

Beautiful color.  No wonder Barbara Streisand loves it!  My mom loves it too, it's been on her toes forever now and she doesn't want another color.  This is a great match for her skin tone, and mine as well.  It has to be a favorite because of that!

Essie-Demure Vixen and China Glaze Crackle Latticed Lilac

Demure Vixen gives me lobster claws.  It will be going to live with one of my best friends!  I added Latticed Lilac on top, and it's better but it did not crackle too well.  My relationship with crackle, love you and hate you.  So frustrating that I think I've figured out what to do to have it crack (always shake before applying) but it may be that the fact that I live without central air right now wreaks too much havoc.

Zoya-Sooki and Sinful Colors-Why Not

Well, the colors are bold and beautiful but neither are for me.  Sooki is not a good red match for my skin, although it is a great tomato cream red.  Why Not pissed me off with all the crazy staining, I have never had a polish stain like this one did.  It ticked me off so much that it was sent in for the Zoya exchange, I didn't feel I could pass it on to others and have the stain ghost follow me.

Juicing, Essie-Chinchilly and OPI-Silver Shatter

 Love love love.  Great formula.  Essie, great job!

I added OPI's Silver Shatter and loved the results.  I felt very modern and cooler than I am :)  Heh.  Also a few pics of the juices I've been making, they taste better than they look, I promise!
