Good morning, all. Happy Thursday. I've got tomorrow off! *happy dance dance* Yesterday during the day I went a little shopping crazy. I got a pencil skirt and a top from the Garden Collection from H&M and like nine bottles of nail polish. This has not been a good week for frugality, I will tell you that. I found some awesome goodies at Rite-Aid! Lots of pictures in this post.
Lookie what I found; an awesome new Wet n Wild Wild Shine polish. I found a whole new display. This one is called Tropical Splash and it's kind of a frost along the same lines as Rain Check and Wild Card. It kind of reminds me of China Glaze Watermelon Rind in that it is a super blue-leaning green. Pretty, isn't it? As usual, the formula on this was perfect. I had no problems. Well, one problem, but it's my fault. Since this is kind of frosty it shows all the flaws in my nail beds, and the nails on my right hard are a hot peely mess. I need to buff them or something.
Here is the display I found. The collection looks like it's called Guilty Pleasures (vibrantly candy-licious with an irresistible finish, even).
I obviously wasn't feeling too guilty about these because I picked up six. They're under a dollar, as you all know. Anything that's under a dollar is guilt-free, in my opinion.
From left to right we have: Candy Apple Twist, Mint Fusion, Tropical Splash (pictured above), Blueberry Fizz, Berry Jubilee and Grape Crush
They're so pretty all standing in a row like that, no? I got all the cool-toned colors plus one coral (which y'all know I just can't resist like, ever). I compared the coral to Blazed first and they were different enough to warrant having both. Three of these are cremes (Candy Apple Twist, Blueberry Fizz and Berry Jubilee), two are kind of frosty (Tropical Splash and Grape Crush) and Mint Fusion is a shimmer. It reminds me of China Glaze Entourage.
I stopped at Sally's yesterday too in the hopes that they had Poolside. No display so I was sad...UNTIL I noticed a few China Glaze boxes sitting on the counter about to be put away. They had one Poolside set. One. The buy two get one free thing was still going on, too. The nice Sally's employees let me tear through their boxes once again and I emerged with these.
Sun Worshipper, Flip Flop Fantasy and Kiwi-Cool-Ada
I've been dreaming about Flip Flop Fantasy since I first saw Scrangie's swatches. The green looks awesome too, and I just kind of randomly chose the orange. I wasn't too interested in the blue, I already have a ton of straight-up neon pinks and I didn't think I'd wear the yellow. Sun Worshipper was left by default. I think it'll look good on my toesies :)
That's all for today. Long post, huh? Phew. What do you guys think about these new Wet n Wild polishes? Has anyone else seen them yet? They're hitting it out of the park right now, man. I'll leave you with a picture of Raven and Alley sitting by the door. I took this one while I was sitting outside looking in at them.
Oh, BY THE BY, I have 293 followers as I write this. That is awfully close to 300. Once I reach that magic number I am planning a little giveaway, so please help a sister out and click "Follow" if you haven't already. Kthx.
