Pink Wednesday

Hey, I'm back another Pink Wednesday. Sadly my pick is a dud. L. A. Colors no name pink flaky. Three coats was my limit. Very thin just messy and a pain. The pics are bad, too! There is no sun out today.Hopefully the other five colors are better. Enjoy :-)

L.A. Colors Haul

Ok guys. Sorry for the absence. I've been busy in "real" life. But, here is a great black I found at Marshall's of all places. Seven polishes for under $7. Unfortunately, I have no idea what any of these lovelies are named other than what the collection is called. Which is. . . L.A. Colors Shimmer Brights, Limited Edition Series. On to the pics of my first choice. My plan is to swatch all these lovelies by week's end. 
L-R: A black flaky shimmer, a royal blue shimmer, a teal shimmer, green shimmer, orange shimmer, pink flaky shimmer, and a purple flaky shimmer.
This was two coats to opaque. A char coal black with gray flakes throughout. Heaven.
I love dark polishes and this one is tops. Enjoy!♥

Teal We Meet Again

I visited with my sister Saturday and a girlfriend mentioned teal color polish. I got to thinking that would be hot, right at the end of summer. But, not only did I want to do the color I wanted it to be "over the top" because of the great time I had yesterday and last night *wink* ;~)
At any rate I chose a favorite band, Sally Hansen. Two coats for this teal shimmer. I see why they call it The Real Teal. Micro teal shimmer throughout and the teal is a cool green mint. Um, I feel so fresh.
 I topped it with two coats of Teal-y Cool. A Translucent teal base with teal and sliver duo chrome gilter. I was feeling very multidimensional this morning. Very, layered. In a good way.
My accent ( ring fingers) I topped with more sparkle. Because I'm in a really good mood. I used
 L.A. Colors, Dollar Store find, and OPI Servin' Up Sparkle         
Then I dipped my tips in fine blue gilter. Two top coats of Seche Vite quick dry so I could get on with my day. ♥
Enjoy. Thanks.

Lincoln Park After Dark

Lincoln Park After Dark is the companion to the OPI set I bought from Ulta a few weeks back. I swatched Big Apple Red (here).
 L.P.A.D. is a deep deep burgundy. It comes off as a rich brown. Without the dookie, lol.
I love purple and this is so many things even a plum pudding color. Heaven.
 In the pics, what you see is what you get. The camera did a good job of showcasing this color. Very true to real life.
Two coats, no problem. Top coat.
Enjoy ♥
