I'm back with my first Rodeo Diva polish! First and foremost let me just thank you guys for your encouraging comments yesterday. It is so beyond sweet and you're all amazing. I feel like doing this blog has brought me so many good things, a nice support system among them. You're all really fantastic. OKAY MUSHY STUFF OVER AHEM.
I got a lot of encouragement to try out Rodeo Fanatic first, and I knew that would probably be the case. However, I had just worn that Sally Hansen Pacific Blue polish for five straight days. I need a bit of...not blue. I ended up choosing the polish that I think I will like the least to wear first, and that's Red Stallion. If this really will be the color I like the least, then I think I'm going to like, ask this collection to be my domestic partner. Because this color is hot. It's just sexy. Period. My pictures will never capture this color accurately because there is no sun here. If you want to see a fabu picture, check out Scrangie's Rodeo Diva post.
Red Stallion is my favorite kind of red, and that's a red with a lot of orange in it. Blue reds just are not my thing. It's kind of a metallic with beautiful shimmer, and those things combined make it just...glow.
Indoors, natural light. My application left something to be desired this time, so I apologize.
You can kind of see the shimmer in the bottle on this one.
I included this image (with flash) because it shows that the shimmer is kind of orange.
Last night my parents and I went out to dinner. We've all had kind of crappy weeks, so my mom thought it would be a good way to start to wind down. While we were eating my dad looked over at me and wistfully said, "My old car, in the 70s, was the exact color of your nail polish..." My dad has never once noticed my nails. This color is just too beautiful. Also, does anybody else wonder why it's ALWAYS acceptable to wear red, no matter how bright? But if you want to wear bright blue or even black it's like...not as acceptable? I find that weird.
ANYWAY, this is beautiful and sexy. That's it. I used two coats but I think I would have actually been okay with one. The formula...was perfection. Perfection! This was a good introduction to the collection.
On my way home from quitting my job yesterday I strategically passed by several drug stores and one Claire's. *sigh* I have an addiction and it is a problem.
I blame Brooke for this one. I saw swatches of these on her blog the other day and I knew I had to have them.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Caribbean Coral, Sinful Colors Overjoyed and Claire's Dreamcatcher, the supposed Chanel Jade dupe
Has anyone else seen Sinful Overjoyed? Or is it Overjoy? I'm not sure, I don't have it sitting next to me. It looks really cool. My friend Amber was looking for a Chanel Jade dupe a while ago, so Amber, if you're reading this, Dreamcatcher might be it. I'll let you know what I think in the next couple weeks (although it's not as if I have Jade or anything...).
That's all for today. Thanks again, guys, for being completely awesome. It means a lot to me.
