I had a terrific weekend. Incidentally, DBF was out of town for the weekend… is it bad that my weekend alone was so awesome? LOL. I met a NBer on Sunday and had a really great time.
Weekend haul / presents: OPI Glitzerland, Glacier Bay Blues (yahoo!), Essie Jazz, Essie In Stitches, Essie Mesmerize, Essie Absolutely Shore, Essie Sag Harbor, Essie Chinchilly
There's a hockey game on tonight, so I will be swatching these babies tonight!
I also got these super cute decals!!! Aren't they fabulous?!
So, last week, aveyou.com had a 2 hour flash sale in celebration of their Facebook page getting 400 followers/friends. The code was shared on NB and I broke my no-buy! I believed it was a sign that the sale was announced right after I had set up my blog sale (LOL, thank you everyone who purchased!! You made me feel less guilty XD).
Aveyou haul: OPI Koala Bear-y, OPI YDKJ Suede, OPI Have a Tempura Tan-trum, Essie Shelter Island, Essie Smooth Sailing, Essie Braziliant, Essie Vermillionaire
Today, I'm going to show you guys the two gorgeous orange shades I bought!
Essie Braziliant – From the recent Essie collection, this shimmery orange actually doesn't dry that shiny! I topcoated it for these pics. Very pretty! 2 coats.
Essie Vermillionaire – This is from last year's summer collection. I always thought it was gorgeous, but too bold for me. Luckily, after this wonderful year of nail polish appreciation, I feel confident enough to sport this on my tips! … on the weekend, at least :) Lovely formula, shown with 2 coats.
Piff mentioned recently that this polish was quite close to DL Lara's Theme. This nugget of info made Vermillionaire an easy buy for me, LOL! Thanks, Piff!
And a quickie comparison between Braziliant and Vermillionaire: They look more similar in the picture than they do in real life. I'm happy to have both shades.
I still have a lot of polish to go through and purge, but all these new pretties make me so happy! I'm so grateful that I am easily amused.
DBF is coming home tonight. My awesome weekend has come to an end (LOL). How was your weekend?!
p.s. I also ordered 2 more holos from fabuloustreet. BOOYAH.
