Color Club – Electronica

Posted by manicuremania on November 12, 2009

cc electrBeautiful color! The shimmer in this seems to be pink and purple. I love it when the shimmer in a polish is a different color than the base! The wear didn’t seem to be very good though – all this crazy tipwear is after only one day of wearing it.

Color Club – Sultry (Diva?)

Posted by manicuremania on October 26, 2009

I wore this the other night for Halloween when I was Cleopatra, and I’ve decided it deserves a second chance after my last bad review of it. I do like this color! This is 3 coats, and I dunno, maybe I just wasn’t careful on the coverage last time? I seem to remember there being bare spots before.

I’m having trouble with the name of this polish, though – is it Sultry or Sultry Diva? The bottle says Sultry, but I keep finding it online as Sultry Diva. Annoying.

I have been slacking so much lately! I just haven’t had much time to even paint my nails, let alone do anything interesting or take pictures and post them! Blogging is extremely time consuming. And as a result of having no time to do anything with them, my nails need some serious love – I’m off to go take care of that now!

Color Club – Fashion Addict

This is my only holo…but now that I know how awesome it is, I am going to have to start calling it my first holo. Actually the only reason I bought this was for Konading, and it’s great for that, but it’s also just amazingly shimmery and beautiful. It’s like, just as flashy as a glitter, but not as in-your-face, and also not as much trouble to apply and remove. I love this!

Color Club – Sultry Diva

This polish doesn’t really do much for me – I don’t think that golds really look all that good with my skin.

It looked ok to me in person, but from this picture I think I could have used a fourth coat. Fourth!!!!

Color Club – Sexy Siren

Posted by manicuremania on August 21, 2009

I adore Color Club’s Glitter Vixen collection! The colors are so bright and they are so sparkly! The only one I didn’t get was Magic Attraction (multicolored glitter).

Look at them all lined up so pretty and sparkly and colorful!!

L-R: Object of Envy, Sulty, Art Of Seduction, Sexy Siren, Tru Passion, Sex Symbol

One thing I’ve noticed about them, though, is that the bottle caps are a little odd. I absolutely could not get the cap off of Art Of Seduction at all. I tried using stuff from the kitchen – bottle openers, rubber thingies that are supposed to help you grip tops while opening, etc. Nothing worked. So I had to ask my dad for help, and he also had a lot of trouble instead of making it look effortless like dads tend to do…but it finally came off. Then later, the green one just disintegrated in my hands for no reason – that’s why it’s taped in the picture.

These are completely packed with glitter, but they’re still 3-coaters for me. I’ve only worn three of them so far, the blue, the red, and the silver, and each time I was practically blinded by all the sparkle. They apply with a pretty rough finish, as most glitters do, so I usually top them with two coats of Seche.

gorgeous!

China Glaze – For Audrey

Posted by manicuremania on August 2, 2009

This is my very favorite color of polish…to look at in the bottle. So gorgeous. I’ve been saving it until my nails grew out a little because they were kinda uneven when I first started all this. I just don’t like it on my nails very well! Maybe it’s some sort of skintone mismatch?

after a day or two of wear :(

Since it’s starting to look crappy now anyway, I figured I’d add a Konad.

Man, these closeup pictures of my nails are kind of horrifying. They look fine to me in person, but zoomed in it’s gross cuticles everywhere!
