Valentine Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Spotted these cuties at one of my local CVS the other night. Super duper cute! I'm torn on which ones to pick up. If I recall correctly, the price is $9.99 ( sometimes the limited edition ones are around $10.99) Also, they are part of a BOGO sale. Yay! Even though Valentines is almost 2 months away, I'd pick them up soon. For sure to sell out quickly.

Purple with silver shatter

This is one of my favorite polish combos. These are from the Serena Williams Grand Slam collection. This particular set is the Grand Slam England. I LOVE this set! The best one in the collection and the most beautiful purple OPI has in my opinion. The set was released Spring 2011. It's one of six that were released Spring/Summer 2011 to celebrate the major tennis matches this year. Stores gave been sold out for ages, but you can still find them on e-tellers and eBay (of course). The two colors pictured are Grape...Set...Match! and silver shatter. I wish I had taken a picture of Grape to show the beautiful sparkle and slight doucheome. take my word for it, it's amazing!

Gold and turquoise shatter

I got a limitless bored with colors lately and decided to mix it up a little. I have sooooo many polishes that I haven't used. I need to start using them ! For the base coat I used China Glaze GR8 from the amazing OMG! Line. Second coat for some extra zazz is Looks Like Rain, Dear from last years holiday collection from Sephora by OPI. Lastly, I used the turquoise shatter from OPI. This one is one of favorite shatter colors. It came out a little thick, but still gave a cool shatter effect.

Nicki Minaj OPI info and swatches

This time last year I was totally impatient for the Katie Perry OPI collection. Now, it's time for Nicki Minaj collection. The star of this collection for me is the purple shatter. I picked up the China Glaze purple shatter, but I really like the OPI shatter better. Plus purple is purple is purple to me:)  Collection is due out in Febuary and will be available at fine salons, Ulta and Trade Secret. Swatches were done by the lovley ladies over at Cutie-cles. Thanks ladies.http://cutie-cles.blogspot.com/2011/12/nicki-minaj-for-opi-swatches-review.html.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects

I love these things! Especially now that its that time of year for clearance:) I picked up skinny jeans for only $2.47 at CVS the other day. They also have many slid colors available too. I could pass up the others though. (Love Letters and I Love Lacey)I was scared they would sell out before a good sale hit:( I also picked up the two Halloween ones at Ulta for $4.99. they last forever. and no mess. Takes about 5 mins to apply and not worries of smudging!

Spoilded swatches

I finally spotted the new Spoiled line by Wet n' Wild today at CVS. (It's right next to my house, almost there everyday lol). it was a little end cap hanger and was a couple aisles away from the makeup area. Only $1.99. They had a ton of colors to choose from. I only picked up two glitters though. I really like them. They arent to "glittery" and are easy to remove. Defiantly worth picking up. All  swatches are with 2 coats.

Polish Fetish: HUGE CVS clearance sale haul

Polish Fetish: HUGE CVS clearance sale haul: Hi ya! it's that time again! I LOVE drugstore clearance events. You can pick up so much good stuff for nothing. Fellow blogger, G from Nouve...

HUGE CVS clearance sale haul

Hi ya! it's that time again! I LOVE drugstore clearance events. You can pick up so much good stuff for nothing. Fellow blogger, G from Nouveau Cheap has posted a most helpful master list. Now, I only found 1 item in the stores that was listed on sale that was not when I got to the stores. Not her fault, I guess just a delayed mark down for CVS. http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com/2011/12/cvs-beauty-clearance-sale.html. Anyways, I decided to drop by the CVS next to my house last night just to browse any new holiday colors that may have come in. To my delight, I found a bunch of clearance polishes from Sally Hansen and Revlon. Once I got back home I noticed G's post and headed back out today. In total I visited 3 CVS and spent about $39. I saved $118! Now, as you guys may know that's pretty great. CVS has gotten kinda sucky with the sales when it come to polish. I'm getting ready to swatch ( seeing I cant get online for the Star Wars: The Old Republic!!), so pics will be up soon. They also had tons of makeup and beauty tools. Great time to stock up or create fun stockings for co-workers or teens.

OPI Muppets collection

Rainbow Connection over OPI  You Don't Know Jacques
Hello there! Yes, I've been MIA for a bit. It will be like this until the holiday season is over. Retail hours are crazy! A couple weeks ago I dropped by Ulta and saw they had just put out the new OPI Muppet collection. I was way to excited:) I only picked up some of the colors. Hopflly in the next couple weeks, I'll be able to grab the rest. OPI really went out with the sets on this collection. I would have liked to have seen a glitter mini collection though. Buying the 2fers was a better deal than buying the two polishes. $14.50 for the two when each bottle is normally $8.50. I did think the polish/lip gloss sets were over priced. $14.50 for those too. I dont have many swatches at the moment,only Rainbow Connection. but I will post them eventually:) The glitter in Rainbow is AMAZING!! I'm not a huge glitter fan, depends on my mood, but this a so pretty and can be done over soooooo many colors or by it self. Application was pretty good considering its a chunky glitter. Like must glitter, it is a pain to remove. But well worth it. I had so many compliments from people over this color. When I told them the name, most giggled and wanted to remissness about the Muppets:).Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

Nails Inc. Magnetic Polish:)

I've bee a bad girl and haven't blogged much lately. Crazy time in retail with Christmas coming up. I had to take a break from the madness the other night,
I dropped by Sephora and to my delight they were putting out the Nails Inc. magnetic polish. I actually squealed with glee and grabbed up a bottle. The budget has been tight but I had to allow myself a small treat:) Seeing purple is my fav, I picked up Houses of Parliament. I rushed home, cleaned off my nails and went to town. Unfortunately, the instructions are not in English, so you tube I searched. The polish is nice and thick, really only need one coat, but I went ahead and did two. I did keep touching the magnet to my nail, so I do have a couple of spots in the middle of a few of them. Simply paint your nail and put the magnet over the wet polish for 10-20 seconds. Them bam, fancy lines :) I love the shine of the purple and with the black lines, it's a really effect. At $16 a bottle for .33 oz, it's a bit steep for me, but well worth it. I'm looking forward to getting silver in a couple weeks. If they haven't sold out. ( keeping my fingers crossed that Sephora.com might actually get some of the 3 piece sets in. But I've heard rumors of them discounting it before its released)

Never know what you'll find

Just a quick post. I was running some errands today and decided to slid by T.J. MAXX to see if they got any new polish in. Not much was there but I did see more duo packs. This time from OPI. Holiday packaging but the colors were from the Shrek collection. I already have them all ( thinking of what I went through to get them and now finding them here kinda irks me:() Wanted to give a shout out to those who may be searching . $7.99 for 2. I paid at least that er bottle. Never under estimate discount stores. They are a treasure trove of goodies sometimes. I have found OPI dous, Nicole duos and Color Club sets for cheap! Next time you are by one, check it out:)

Sally hansen Salon Effects-Halloween:)

I love Halloween! The awesome decorations, dressing up, CANDY! And of course the wicked nail colors that come out. Thank you Sally Hansen for bringing Salon Effects into our lives. Now, the insanely popular line has introduced Halloween colors. I spotted them at Ulta yesterday. CVS, Walgreens and other nationwide retailers should have them soon as well. I'll probably wait until I can grab them on a buy 1 get 1 1/2 deal. Prices range $9.00-$10.99 and only take minutes to get amazing holiday nails!:) As soon as I pick one up, I'll post pics.
Numbskull, Hot Wired, Ghoulie Girl, Wishnets, and Spun for you.

Nicole by OPI haul

I have a new polish pick up spot now. TJ Maxx! Who would have thought. I stopped by to kill some time waiting for a friend the other week and spotted a Nicole duo pack. For $6.99, why not. I turned the corner and spotted a bunch more. After standing in the store and trying to talk myself out of buying them all, I failed and ended up getting them all:) They were a mixture of the matte collection and Gossip Girl line. If you have a TJ Maxx or Ross  in your area, check them out. Each pack is $6.99. It;s like but one get one free:)

Wet n' Wild haul

Of course every time I'm in CVS, I have to check out the polish. I almost missed this new batch. They have it in it's regular Wet n' Wild endcap. Not sure when they were released but they ate definitely the new fall line. I grabbed all the colors except the black. I do love their fast dry blacks. Ebony Hates Chris is just awesome. Some seem like they could be dupes from last falls CG lines and the TV theme fast dry line. Regardless, for $1.99 a bottle, it's well worth it. The fast dry has a much better quality compared to the regular W n W polishes. Perfect for the polish girl/boy on a budget.
