Nina Ultra Pro – Leaf Me Alone

Posted by manicuremania on November 18, 2009

nin leaf me

I LOVE this color. LOVE. It is the prettiest green ever, and I am so happy with it!! I even liked it well enough to apply the four coats that were required for opacity, and it didn’t even bug me!

Tiffany Blue Comparison

Posted by manicuremania on October 19, 2009

And now for the zillionth tiffany blue polish comparison currently on the internet!

Here we have the regulars: Nina Ultra Pro In A Tiff, China Glaze For Audrey, and Diamond Cosmetics Oh, Tiff!

tiff compare 3

For Audrey provided the best coverage, of course (China Glaze yay!), with Oh, Tiff! providing the worst.

In A Tiff – 3 coats, a hint of shimmer

For Audrey – 3 coats, could’ve easily stopped at 2, creme

Oh, Tiff! – 4 coats for complete opacity, creme

Small Haul

Posted by manicuremania on October 18, 2009

I picked up some polishes this weekend!

From Sally’s:

  • sallysChina Glaze Flying Dragon
  • China Glaze Strawberry Fields
  • Orly Blue Suede
  • Nina Ultra Pro Leaf Me Alone
  • Nina Ultra Pro In A Tiff

Still didn’t manage to hit the $25 mark for the 15% off coupon next month, but I’m kinda OK with that because I think that except for basics like files and Orly basecoat, I’m kinda done with Sally’s. I mean, the selection of polishes is so very limited, and I’ve pretty much gotten the ones I really want…I think I’ll have to get the rest of the China Glazes that I’ve been wanting online. Plus, my Sally’s never seems to have the new collections that I keep hearing about other people getting in there. Like, I STILL haven’t seen Orly Pixie Dust. Also, WTF is up with the China Glaze Matte Magic? I went in there prepared to buy it but…it’s $6 for a MINI?????????? I can stick with Matte About You, thank you!

From Walmart:

  • walmartPure Ice Kiss Me Here (I adore gray polishes)
  • Pure Ice Cheatin (damn damn damn, this is a dupe)
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear In The Navy
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Deep Purple

From the Halloween Store:

  • halloweenFantasy Makers Black Magic (had planned to pass on this one, but I weakened)

I also got something else fabulous in the Halloween store, plus I recieved my awesome package from Sasse, coming in future posts!

I’ve got lots of plans for posts coming up, I just hope to be able to find the time to actually do them soon! My nails have been neglected lately. I’m also totally behind on organizing, I’ve got polishes everywhere, tried polishes mixed up with new ones, and none of the new ones have been catalogued. 😦
