A Little of This and That Spam

I have quite a bit of backlogged photos to post. Many of them are just random ones that I wore just so I could make a dent out of my mass amount of untried polishes. So today and tomorrow you all will get very non-thematic polish spam! YAY! I can feel the excitement coming through.

China Glaze Tuesday

China Glaze is like the lively cousin of OPI. A little temperamental, a lot more adventurous, and always reliable for fun. Here are some more recent NOTDs I wore with China Glaze. 

China Glaze Budding Romance
Spring 2013 Avant Garden Collection
Very similar to Rescue Beauty No More War, except I like this one better.
 It's a jelly polish, so you get that great shine and it applies oh so well.

China Glaze Fancy Pants
 Spring 2013 Avant Garden Collection
My photo makes this look more blue than the purple it is.

 China Glaze Glitter Goblin
Halloween 2012 Wicked Collection
Layered over OPI A Woman's Prague-ative
The holo glitter is super fine which I prefer and
the in-your-face sparkle is just

 China Glaze Mimosa's Before Mani's
Spring 2013 Avant Garden Collection
One of the few corals that I ended up getting this year. While I like it, I don't LOVE it. 

China Glaze DV8
OMG Collection
Take on a cloudy day so I wasn't able to show off it's very cool holoness. 

China Glaze It's A Trap-eze
Cirque du Soleil Collection
With this milky white and rainbow glitter polish, I can't help but think China Glaze is taking note of indie polish makers. Love ya China Glaze but a few others beat you to it and did it better. Like this one.

China Glaze Mosaic Madness
Glitz Bitz 'n Pieces Collection
Layered over Sunday Funday
Ditto to above but this time with this polish.

China Glaze Sunday Funday
Spring 2013 Avant Garden Collection
Very saturated and dreamy cyan blue.

Jelly Galore

Oh jelly polishes, how I love thee. Though I must apply multiple coats to reach opacity but once I am done, I have a beautiful, super shiny polish to admire. 

Lippmann Supermodel
Available here
Very sheer, this is 5 coats of polish I think, but the color is worth it.

Lippmann Stop and Stare
Available here
Yes, I have two red Lippmann jellies. Yes, they look super similar BUT if I had to compare, I would say Supermodel leans more orange and Stop and Stare is more a cherry red. 

Illamasqua Rampage
Available here
The first of my three dark green jellies. Formula is flawless but I expect nothing less of Illamasqua.

Nars Zulu
Available here
Darker then Rampage and Recycle and a little streaky but no less love for it than the day I got it.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Recycle
Available here
This is more a crelly (creme jelly hybrid) than a true jelly but really great formula and high shine.

OPI My Pointe Exactly
Available here
Love this gray jelly, I've used it more than a few times since I bought it last spring. 

Verity Deep Violet
Available here
A little more red toned than New York Summer Hot Purple.

Blue Wednesday

I'm not feeling particularly blue today, which is a good thing. But then, blue doesn't really have to mean feeling low or down in the dumps. If anything, a bright and vibrant blue can be uplifting! So here are some blue nails to brighten your day. 

Different Dimensions Lapis Lazuli available here 
I think I like non color shifting flakies but then I'am disappointed when I get a bottle that has them. I wish I could be more wowed by this polish but unfortunately it doesn't excite me all that much.

Elevation Polish Sample #146
On the other hand, something so simple, a teal creme/jelly that has black speckles, that excites the hell out of me. I wish I had this polish in all the colors of the rainbow.
Not in production at this time, the is a sample that I managed to grab months ago. Samples are available in Elevation Polish's shop here though you have to be quick to get them. 

Jade Alga Marinha (from their Cremoso collection) available here
Really nice and vivid teal, it looks streaky but that's probably me being impatient and applying topcoat too soon. I really do like the Jade Cremoso polishes, especially at their price point. 

KBShimmer Black to Business available here
layered over Nina Ultra Pro Ink-Ling
Less blue than gray or black but it has blue glitter and that counts for me. 

Nails Inc Pudding Lane 
Part of the Sprinkles Collection available here
I was so excited for these when they were released but for whatever reason, I didn't end up wearing it until a couple of weeks ago. 

Kunimitsu Nail Potions Lucky Goldfish available here
Similar to Barielle Falling Star in that they are both blue with copper glitter but this is much better. I remember the Barielle polish being super thick and hard to apply and this one applied like a dream. The copper stands out really well. 

Rescue Beauty Lounge IKB: 2012 
Not available at this time but other polishes from Rescue Beauty are available here
This is the type of vibrant blue I am always drawn to. The formula for this is notorious hard to work with and I definitely had to apply with care.
