Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat!

I work at CVS, and when I saw this new polish line called Fuzzy Coat by Sally Hansen, I wasn't sure how I felt about it.  Still, it was different than anything I've seen recently, so I knew I had to try it out.  I'm actually really glad that I did, because it's awesome.

I got the shade Peach Fuzz, a mixture of tiny orange and yellow bar glitters.
Usually I don't go for oranges or yellows because they look terrible against my pasty skin, but I thought I'd give it a go since most of my polish collection is made up of blues and greens.

Pardon the terrible lighting; it looked awesome in the sun, which was out not two minutes before I took these.

I put one coat of Funky Fingers Taffy Town before I did two coats of Peach Fuzz, just so there would be no  nakedness underneath.

My cuticles are so nasty and dry!  At least the polish looks nice.

Here is one with the flash.  I was hoping it would maybe mimick the sunlight a little and, as you can tell, it did not.

All in all, I cannot wait to get more.  They had a light pink/white, a blue/green, a green/white... so great!
They are $5.99 at CVS.  There is a sale going on until 5/25 that if you spend $10 on Sally Hansen Cosmetics, you get $5 Extra Bucks back, hooray!

Leopard Print Gradient.

I painted these on Monday night, and today five of them are completely chipped off.  I guess that's what I get for doing something ~fancy~ and then working on delivery day.  I just wish I had gotten a better picture, perhaps with my actual camera and not just a quick one on my phone.  I hadn't even taken the excess polish off of my fingers yet, how embarrassing.  Oh well, it's still pretty neat-o!

It's a lime green/fluorescent yellow and light, turquoise-y blue gradient.  I used a pink Icing brand polish for the spots, then an Art Deco sparkly purple for the lines around the spots.  It looks much better in real life.

Blue nail art!

I don't generally do a different design for each finger nail (I lack inspiration!), but I thought I would give it a try using various blue polishes.

Here it is without a flash.  I used all sorts of polishes - Milani, Zoya, Pure Ice, Dollish Polish, Funky Fingers and Nyx Girls.
