At least I *think* it constitutes as a haul? I bought 8 bottles of nail polish in 6 days - haul yes? Here are the deets:
- Essie ~ Pink-a-Boo
- Essie ~ Turquoise & Caicos
- Butter London ~ Disco Biscuit
- Butter London ~ No More Waity, Katie
- Layla Holographic Effect ~ Coral Glam
- Layla Holographic ~ Flash Black
- China Glaze ~ Flip Flop Fantasy
- China Glaze Crackle Glitter ~ Glam-more
Phew... I did some damage & am so happy - unfortch can't say the same thing about my Husband. LOL, I have worn only 2 of the 8 so far. First up to review is - Essie Pink-a-Boo!! Did I scare ya? If my "Boo" didn't, then my hang nail is sure to do so. LMAO Please bear with me. I swear I push back & remove cuticles (1st time ever this past weekend) & I cut hang nails (although I hate calling them that!) But, there it is, in all of it's ugly glory on my middle finger :( Sorry... just disregard...
This was tough for me to photograph, I was never much of a macro user on my camera & now I'm being forced to figure it out.
According to Essie Pink-a-Boo is: A sheer pink w/ glittery sparkle. Could have used a little more of a description, whatevs. It is very sheer, but after 4 coats this is the opacity I was able to achieve. I like it. It's a pale, soft, pretty pink with very fine micro blue glitter. There are other flashes of color as well, red, gold & purple. But as I said, these pictures do it no justice. I got compliments on it, but unless you see it up close you can't see the effect all to well :( Still, I'll be sure to use it again. This is part of Essie's 2012 Resort Collection ~ I got this pretty lady at Ulta for $8.00. These pictures are 4 coats of Pink-a-Boo & 1 coat of Poshe.
This is also the 1st time I've used the clean up method all the talented girls use - dipping a slanted brush in acetone & gently swiping to create a smooth line & clean up any imperfections. Evidently I am not talented LMAO, I guess practice makes perfect! I'll be back soon to swatch another part of my haul tomorrow! 'Til next time!!!
