Today I'm showing you some spam. These photos never made it into an actual blog post, all for various reasons. Some show chips, were taken with a cell phone camera, aren't color accurate, needed another coat of polish, didn't wear well or I didn't snap any other photos that came out decent so they sat in waiting. Some of these aren't so old, some are OLD.
Should I begin?
|Color Club Love Em Leave Em (I just didn't love how this photographed)|
|OPI Gargantuan Green Grape (this was two coats, clearly needs a third)|
|China Glaze Strawberry Fields (taken in the dark of night, in my car, with my cell phone camera. Not 100% color accurate)|
|Milani Dressmaker (This is by 10am the next morning. Wore terribly on me. Three coats and it was chip city. Will have to try this again sometime down the road)|
|China Glaze First Mate (one of my faaaaavorite blues. This deserves it's own post)|
|GOSH Holo (I received this from a wonderful girl in the UK as a swap gift. This didn't make it into a post because of the chip)|
|Layla Retro Pink (this was quite 'blah' on me)|
|Revlon Royal Cloak (my pics looked like I had lotion on my nails, which you can see) :(|
|Zoya Ali (gorgeous pink, cell phone camera pic. My regular camera haaaates pinks)|
|Nails Inc Baker Street (Not color accurate. Brighter and bluer in real life)|
|OPI Sapphire in the Snow (This one also deserves a full blog post. I only had this one pic)|
|Girly Bits Shift Happens over Nails Inc Baker Street (NI BS not color accurate)|
|Milani Orchidia (absolutely gorgeous in person, but this is not color accurate. It's a deeper, darker purple with beautiful glass flecks)|
|Bettina Flip Flop (Gorgeous - probably deserves it's own post)|
|China Glaze Sea Spray (holy nubbins!)|
|OPI Cajun Shrimp vs Zoya Elodie. OPI on the pointer and ring, Zoya on the middle and pinky. SO similar in person, but the OPI has much more depth and coverage. Kept the OPI, purged the Zoya.|
Want to see my biggest nail polish FAIL of the month?
|Polish spillage! It doesn't look that bad here but it was a huge mess.|
|Where's your head?!?!|
WTF tokidoki?!?! I picked this up at Sephora since it was on clearance for $4 and had an interesting mix of glitters. I had put this in my bag just hours before it broke. I put my hand in my bag to grab a lipgloss and found the above. It had almost dried completely and was nearly impossible to get off my bag. Since it wasn't one of my cheaper bags I couldn't bare to use nail polish remover on it, so I used laundry detergent and an army knife to scrape it off - which took forever. The capped portion of the bottle broke off completely from the body. Tokidoki fail. My bag still has a corner of random polish glitter :(
That's it for today. I'm off to get ready and head to Ulta and CVS. Before I got into nail polish I was a huge makeup junkie. Lately, I've been obsessed with the MU board on MUA. I bought at least $200+ worth of makeup in the past two weeks and I have a mental list of things I *need*. I'm headed out to see if I can hunt down the new L'Oreal Project Runway LE polishes and eyeshadows, which you can see here. Per Nouveau Cheap, they were spotted in NYC on Tuesday. I have a few Ulta coupons (my boyfriends neighbors moved so I stole their coupons, as well as my boyfriends lol) so I hope I get lucky!
