New Color Club Pride collection!!!

Oh man I am SO excited about this!!!! 

COLOR CLUB LAUNCHES PRIDE: Raise Your Hand if You Believe in Life in Color

New York, NY – July 2011 - What makes us proud: Being bold. Making a statement. Living life to the fullest. Equality for all. From New York-based Color Club, the new PRIDE Collection—vibrant polishes in every color of the rainbow, from red to violet—captures what it means to live your life in color and express your true self (or just your mood du jour). Seven formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, and paraben-free shades celebrate equality with cheeky names like “Not Just for Kelly, Green” and “Boys Wear Blue,” while a portion of proceeds from the sale of the collection benefit New York-based AIDS-related charities. Life comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, and preferences. At the very least, shouldn’t your nail polish?

I Wanna Go

HEY GUYS! I am sooo sorry that I have been MIA for over TWO WEEKS! I have been absolutely SWAMPED with work... it's crazy. The past few weeks have been insane with everyone going on vacation! Okay so anyway, I am back now and I have lots of manis to show you all this weekend! For today's mani, I did a Britney Spears inspired look. In her music video for her song "I Wanna Go" she wears a similar look to this.

Here's a look at her nails in the music video:

and here is MY mani :)

I used Wet N' Wild - Black Creme on my pinky and index, Wet N Wild - French White Creme on my thumb and ring finger (stamped with Black Creme using the zebra image from m57) and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Speedy Sunburst. I LOVE it!!! I also love Britney Spears so I definitely love rocking this :)

Happy Thursday!

Swatches from the giveaway package from You Nailed It!

As you may have read in my last post, I recently won a giveaway hosted by You nailed it! and I received my package in the mail today! So here's a quick post so you can see the swatches! They are all fabulous polishes!!!! :)

China Glaze - Atelier Tulle

Color Club blue polish (not sure of the name... please message me if you have any idea what the name of it is or where the name would be located on the bottle!!)

Orly - Hook Up

Hook up is definitely my favorite! Mostly because yellow is my favorite color :D but all of these polishes applied wonderfully! I seriously cannot get over how much I love these :) They looked great in the pic, but now that they are in my hands they look even better! <3

Mini-Haul x3 !

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii :) Okay so I am suuuuuuuuuuuper excited to tell you guys this! Today, I had to run to Sally's because I needed polish remover. When I walked in, I went straight for the clearance bins! I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES! Two, yes, TWO of the polishes I have been meaning to grab were on clearance for $1.99!! So, of course, I grabbed both (what a steal!) They were China Glaze - Papaya Punch and Orly - Bubbly Bombshell! If that wasn't awesome enough, I had a package waiting for me when I got home!!!! A few weeks back, I won a giveaway from You nailed it! Well I received my package in the mail today!!! The package included three mini nail polishes: China Glaze - Atelier Tulle, Orly - Hook Up & Color Club... but I don't know the name of it! I don't know where the names are located on the bottles because this is my first color club polish! But I can tell you that it is a BEAUTIFUL metallic-y blue. I must say, I was impressed with how well this polish applied!! :)  I absolutely ADORE every polish she sent :) <3 <3 <3

Here's a pic of all the bottles:

Pink Wednesday!

Okay for today's pink Wednesday, I used a SUPER old polish that I had. I have literally had this polish for over ten years! The front label was torn off but I remembered it was a Sally Hansen polish and thankfully the sticker on the lid was still attached so I could google it! Okay so the color I'm wearing today is Sally Hansen "Teflon Tuff" - Pink Metal. I LOVE this color! It's bright and soft at the same time. It covers great in just two coats and it still applies wonderfully for being so old! I didn't have to add thinner or anything! After applying two coats, I added one coat of Revlon - Belle to add some sparkle :) So here you go:

What do you guys think!? Do you have any old polish that you still use?

Orange Leopard

Hello all! I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend! Mine was GREAT! All I did was relax by the beach and the pool :) For today's mani, I used Wet N Wild- Sunny Side Up and Wet N Wild fastdry - stamped with Wet N Wild - Black Creme with the m57 plate and the m78 plate on my ring finger (Plus a small rhinestone for a little bling)! Very summer-y and cute!

Lilac Zebra

Hello everyone! As you may know, I am at the beach right now soaking up the sun :) this is the first time I am scheduling a post so I hope this works! Anyway, for this design I used several polishes. I started off with one coat of Sally Hansen - Lacey Lilac (lavender), added one coat of Sally Hansen - Pink Promise (a GORGEOUS sheer pink glitter), then added one coat of Revlon - Belle (silver multi-sized glitter and finally used my m57 plate stamped with Konad special white polish. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this layering combo. Seriouslyyyyy!!!! I actually kept this on my nails for almost four days (which is like a record for me haha!)

I literally took like a ZILLION pictures and I just couldn't capture the true beauty of this look. It's sad! You should definitely try it if you have those polishes because it's awesomeeeee! I hope everyone has a FABULOUS weekend (I know I will!)
