This week's NOTDs

So this week, I changed my polish every night! That's a first for me, since this is a relatively new obsession :)

I moved the following from the "untried" to the "tried" category:

American Apparel California Trooper
OPI Let Them Eat Rice Cake
American Apparel Office
OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender
Zoya Sloane
Zoya Dana


American Apparel California Trooper


OPI Let Them Eat Rice Cake (sorry for this awful pic. I was having issues lol)


American Apparel Office (it's looking a bit bluer here than it should... )


OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender

This one reminded me a bit of Essie Splash of Grenadine, so when I took it off tonight, I swatched a couple fingers of it:


Comparison: Essie Splash of Grenadine and OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender


Zoya Sloane: This colour is so gorgeous! I really love it, but I only wore it for a couple hours before I decided I wanted something more summery! XD

But first, I had to play a bit with Nfu Oh #40 and mattify it:






Zoya Dana (I'm obviously not so blue coloured; I had a hard time getting the colour to show accurately :( photography fail).

I think the Zoya brush is a lot easier to handle than the wide OPI (I find myself getting brush strokes with the pastel colours). I'm practicing my gap here, ya'll!

Let's see if I can make it through the weekend without changing colours.

Oh! By the way, I got some results today that I have been waiting for, and I passed the last requirement for one of my professional accreditations! I will be getting a raise next month and get to put some letters behind my name XD I allowed myself a $50 stipend for another nail polish haul (I set up this "bonus" before I got my results!) so I'm pondering on what I should get :) I'm thinking of trying BB Couture. /wistful sigh

  2. @jbrobeck, Yay! Do you have any BBC favs? I don't have any full size Essies (other than MAY), so I can't comment :( I'm still looking for a place to get Essies at less than retail (other than Ebay).

  7. I want AA office, and Slone (looks so good on you) and that NFU Oh flakies, although I find NFU Oh a bit expensive for me!

  8. Lelila, that Nfu Oh is the most expensive bottle I own, haha. I'm trying to keep my polishes under $10 before things go crazy.
