photo dump!!

Posted on Sunday, August 29, 2010 | 14 Comments

Hi everyone! I have been quite busy this week so I apologize for the lack of comments and posts.  This week I had to work 6 days instead of my regular 5 =(.  Today is my day off!! yay!..then work again tomorrow.

  I had a few pictures to post up during the week but I never got around to posting them so I will post all my pictures in this one post =)

The first swatch is Secret Peri-Winkle by China Glaze!
It's a gorgeous color and required only 2 coats. I did 3 just in case =) 

Then it was either nail stamp on top or use a top coat...so I decided to use Sally Hansen's hidden treasure

The photo is rather odd because I just could not do a good job capturing the "hidden treasure" flakiness.

Next swatch up is OPI's jade is the new black =)  I  have been very slow to jump on the jade is the new black band wagon.  I should have bought it when it was first released. It took me forever to find it.  I had to go to several shops since most shops no longer sell the OPI Hong Kong collection.


What can I say that you can't see from the photos? it applied like a dream. 2 coats.  Definitely one of my top 10 polishes.

I nail stamped on top of it...I think it was it bad idea. it doesn't look as nice to me after stamping it.

I used china glaze passion and bundle monster plate21

And lastly.. the last swatch we have is OPI DS original. =)  I received this polish from nailstah.

Is this a gorgeous polish or what? I think I need to take better pictures of it since these pictures do not do justice to the color.

And that is all the photos I have for now...phew!

  On another note have you guys heard of the spabeautyschools top 50 nail blogs list?  Well guess what? I actually made it on the list!  is that crazy or what?  I'm not sure what criteria they used to decide who got on the list.  There are some blogs that didn't make the list but I'm certain they should have been on it =(.  Oh yes, they also have this cute nifty badge made.
