New Polish Suggestions?

I was looking at both Head 2 Toe Beauty and Trans Design today (both e-tailers of nail polish), and just noticed that all the Orly Cosmic FX polishes cost $10. At first I thought I was hallucinating, so I checked my receipt from when I bought my Orly Space Cadet, and I bought it from Head 2 Toe Beauty for $5! Isn't that wild? I bought mine probably a month ago? I can't believe the price jumped so fast!

Anyways, I haven't been doing my nails quite as frequently, but it's almost time to restock my Seche Vite and CND Stickey Base Coat! What other polishes have you ladies bought recently that you would suggest to me?? Any favorites? THANKS!

Color Club Magic Attraction & Ms. Socialite

Good morning everyone! This was definitely one of the harder mornings to wake up to; I just wanted to roll back in bed and not go to work. My sorority just started fall rush and it's been really busy! Luckily, rush gives me an excuse to do my nails. Here are my nails from the last couple days:

Color Club Magic Attraction - isn't the glitter just gorgeous and holographic-y? This is a completely glitter polish (dries bumpy because of all the little pieces of glitter), but nothing two coats of top coat won't fix. I find that it dries quickly because it's so glitter-y.

Color Club Magic Attraction again, just because I love it so much! It's got a  lot of different colors of glitter, but I found that it was mostly silver and holographic, which gives it a rainbow look. I bought an extra bottle by accident so it'll be in my next giveaway!

Delta Phi Epsilon nails! I used some purple from LA Colors (one that gloves under UV light), but it was from my sorority so I don't remember the polish! I used Cover Girl Gold Rush (gold sparkles) over.

Color Club Ms. Socialite. This was done for our event tonight, Philanthropy Night! I painted a little bow and added a rhinestone. On the other nails, I did one swipe of Lancôme Juicy Vernis 43 on each.

I'm currently wearing Color Club Magic Attraction; gorgeous, sparkly pictures coming up soon!

Giveaway Update

Just a reminder, the giveaway is ending tomorrow! After tomorrow, I will not be taking any more entries. I am really excited to see who won! I will announce the winner by September 18. Good luck everyone!

An update on my nails: currently unpolished and chipping/breaking... hopefully I will be getting a chance to update my blog again with regular posts. Unfortunately, I have to put blogging behind college and work. Hope to get some posts up soon; I have a lot of polishes I have yet to try!

Blog Update

I just wanted to say that I haven't forgotten about this blog, even though I haven't posted in a few days! My semester just started again (I'm in college), and my schedule is crazy busy - 20 credits of classes + part-time job + other fun (but time-consuming) activities. Phew! I wanted to thank you all for participating in my giveaway - I will announce the winner next week!

I'll have more nail polish art/nail polish pictures when I get back into my groove of being in school (right now, it seems like I'm always either in class, at work, or doing work). I've been keeping up with all my nail blog subscriptions and enjoying all the nail polish pictures as usual!

Color Club Revvvolution

When I first laid eyes on this sexy nail polish, I just had to have it! Unfortunately, it was sold out on all the e-tailer sites. When I recently made a purchase to get Orly Space Cadet (also gorgeous), Color Club Revvvolution was available again! Revvvolution is a gorgeous charcoal holographic nail polish. I wore it here with one coat of Revvvolution, one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust, and one coat of China Glaze Wireless Holographic Top Coat (for that extra bling).

I also did my roommate's nails! She wanted a hot pink, so I used Color Club Electro Candy, topped with Color Club Femme Fatale. I used the nail stickers from Viva la Nails (sent to me as part of the blogger sample pack).
