Ruby Wing - Moonstone

 How cute is this? I first saw these at a new store in my area called XSRE (it took me awhile to figure that out,cause I'm slow like that.) The first time i saw them, they were like $12. Which for a baby blue polish that may or may not turn purple, I felt was a little steep. I did pick up a pretty sweet NYX polish that day, but I digress.
 The next time I went in these were 50% off. Now, that's more like it! So Moonstone got to come home with me. And, look at that, it actually does change color! It was cold, cold, cold out. I own like a million pairs of gloves but never have a pair with me, so i was outside, and looked at my hands and whoa! My nails were sorta purple!
This applies kind of streaky and chalky. Since I picked it up I've started seeing Ruby Wing polishes in other locations. None of the colors/transitions are exciting enough for me to pick up another bottle, but I'm glad I got this one. It's fun and a little different.

Nubar - Reclaim

 I can't remember if I ever posted this. I may have only worn it once before. But, as I rifled through my helmer it called to me. Darn, but this is prettier than I remembered!
 Pug approved too!

Happy St. Patty's Day with Sinful GREEN OCEAN!

 Hehee! I walked into a Walgreens (or was it Rite Aid) a few weeks ago to prowl the nail polish displays. Down on a bottom shelf, tucked into the corner I spotted this tiny Sinful display full of bright green goodness. I'm a sucker for green, especially eye-popping green like Irish green...but then I noticed the flakey. Green Ocean...wait a second, haven't I been looking for this for like two years? And then I gave up? I didn't even care that they weren't on sale, I just snapped them up, and an extra bottle of Green Ocean..just because!

Let me tell you Irish Green is awesome, but man is it a pain in the ass to apply. It's SO thin and watery. I guess it's jelly finish? I dunno, but I had to do this twice because the first attempt was such a mess. Green Ocean was a pain in the butt too, it's super-thick, which did not go well when it too Irish Green forever and a day to dry. BUT, the end reselt was super-pretty! I got tons of compliments, it made me smile every time I looked at my nails and that's really all that matters, right?

Oldie but goodie!

 OPI "Tickle My Francy"
 I forgot just how much I love this classic neutral.
