Orly - Space Cadet

I got my hands on "Space Cadet" from Orly's Cosmic Fx Collection. Many of you have already seen it swatched and just as everyone seems to say, pictures don't do this color justice. I love it & spent all week just staring at my nails!! It's gorgeous!! Check the pictures out!






Thanks for looking & Happy Lacquering!!

Sephora: Ocean Love Potion

So I finally got the Sephora "Ocean Love Potion" (opaque mediterranean turquoise)  I had had my eyes on for a while. I used the China Glaze "Fast Drying Top Coat" on all nails except the ring finger where I used Seche Vite "Fast Dry Top Coat". Also I used the Orly "Bonder".





I am in love with Sephora "Ocean Love Potion" :)

Also I think I might stick to the China Glaze top coat for a while, reasons (in comparison to my previous top coat which was Seche Vite):
  • nice candy like smell
  • smoother application
  • fast drying
  • it's not thick like Seche-Vite
  • no nail shrinkage, so far
So overall I am very happy with it!!

Thanks for reading & Happy Lacquering!

My September Haul

I am really going to have to do a better job at controlling my nail polish related purchases. Take a look at my latest haul.



My Seche-Vite ran out so I decided to give China Glaze's "Fast Forward Top Coat" a chance. Also from China Glaze I got "Ingrid" and "Emerald Fitzgerald" from the Vintage Vixen collection. From Orly I got "Garnet Truth", the Borghese "Serena" Nail Lacquer Mini Kit and a Gold Bond Ultimate "Hand Sanitizer Moisturizer". My favorite part of the haul though, was finding Incoco on sale at my local Walgreens!! So I got "Rose Tea", "Lolita", "Sinderella", "Diva" and "French Manicure: Champagne".  


Since I am very impatient and I had 10 polishes I hadn't tried yet, here's what I did! 

(On my right hand I added the Sephora "Ocean Love Potion", Orly "Old School Orange" and Essie "Damsel In a Dress" that I hadn't tried yet.)


I love the insanity of having 10 different colors :P But I shall be swatching these properly in the next couple of months.


Well I hope you like these!!!


Happy Lacquering my dear readers!!!

Bettina

This post is particularly for my local readers :)


There's this brand in Puerto Rico called Bettina. They have a huge variety of colors and a great formula too. For a while they'd been carrying the same colors, but recently a new collection came out "Candy"!! 



The collection includes (from left to right) "Natural", "Marshmallow", "Green Apple", "Sherbet", "Cotton Candy", "Peppermint" and "Grape".

These can be found in almost every pharmacy & department store in Puerto Rico. In Walgreens they were priced at 2 for $4

So my Puerto Rico readers are you getting these? How is your experience with Bettina?

Storage

Hello again readers!


Take a look at how I store my plates, nail art decals/stickers and nail glitters for an easy access when deciding what to do on my nails.


I bought a cute photo album at Kmart.

The BundleMonster plates fit nicely in it as do the Konad ones.


Also it allows for a perfect way to keep the nail art decals/stickers and nail glitters organized.



And as added bonus I can keep the postcards I've gotten in giveaways, promos and instruction booklets in the album too.

How do you keep your nail supplies organized?

Thanks for looking & Happy Lacquering!

Essie - *insert name here*

So I went to Aerie a while back and I got this pretty pink Essie nail polish there. It was the last bottle and it had no label on it, so I have no idea which of all the pink Essie polishes it is. 
Anyways here are the pictures of the manicure. Again it seems I had little patience and stacked too many thick coats together and I have bubbles in some of my nails. :( I have to be more patient.



If you have an idea of what Essie color this might be leave me a comment, thanks ahead!

Thanks for looking & Happy Lacquering!

edit: another pic of the mystery color



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Edit: An anonymous commenter finally shed some light on the name of the polish! It's an Essie Aerie exclusive called "Aerie Curve".d

Vacation!

Hello my readers!!

These last couple of days I'd been M.I.A. because I was on vacation at Culebra, PR!!!

Take a look at these gorgeous beaches!!


I love how romantic this sunrise looks!

I have no idea what the camera did here but it turned out beautiful!


The manicure on the trip!! It's an Essie I posted about here & I don't have the name :(


I had a great time! Now time to catch up on my posts & get ready for the new semester that starts on the 17th.


Thanks for looking & Happy Lacquering!
