I have accumulated a nice little pile of polishes this week!
What came first was my Zoya order. One of my all-time favorite bloggers and people, Alyssa from Double Chin Diary, (Actually it was Jessica, I got mixed up since Alyssa commented on my facebook post about it! Whoops!) tipped me off that on July 4th you could enter a code that got you the America color free if you had at least $10 in your cart. And shipping was free, so I opted to get two with the America color. I needed white (since the one I had was such crap I mixed it into an old red to make a fun pink color) and I have been lusting over Gemma, so it was a no-brainer.
I had to start with Gemma when it arrived this week. You can see the gorgeous blueish/purple sheen it has in this picture, taken pre-Seche Vite topcoat.
It ended up looking great!
Unfortunately I’ve had more chipping than I usually do with Zoya, but I’ll hope that is just me not prepping my nails well enough. While enjoying a beer last night I noticed that my nails matched the bottle:
The Red Hook Long Hammer IPA is one that I’ve tried in a restaurant once or twice but never brought home. It was great! B had their ESB. I had to stop after one and a quarter beers though, since it gave me heartburn. Gettin’ old, womp.
While buying dog food the other night I also came across a color I’ve been lusting after, the famous Essie Bikini So Teeny. Near the Essie display was the Spoiled display. Less than $2, I’ll take it! You never know how the quality of such inexpensive nail polish is going to be, but I felt it was safe to buy a glitter. (Have any of you tried Spoiled nail polish? Thoughts?)
I think these two will look awesome together… accent nail, perhaps?
And if you are a fan of the glitter’s name- Pet My Peacock- then check out Anne’s blog Hell on Heels today, she’s using that phrase in a sentence or two, and is doing a fun giveaway as well!
I have found two new blogger obsessions through the link-up (who are remaining nameless because I tend to come off like a stalker, sorry) so if you’re looking for new blogs to read, check out the Nail Files link up and see if you are inspired by any mani/pedi posts!
Can’t wait to show you those manicures sometime soon! I’ll be in Atlanta next week so posting might be light. Wonder what color I should paint my nails for my work trip? (Note: glitter is probably not going to be top of the list!) I’ll try and update with what I pick to rock in the ATL. Have a great weekend everyone!
