I decided to do a konad stamp over Brucci’s Gianna’s Rockin Blue.  I choose Kleancolor’s Metallic Blue for the stamp color and the stamp m65.

Make up time

Sadly I came to the conclusion that I’m not a huge fan of the Kleancolor polishes. I had a few issues with them, the biggest being that they took forever to dry. And once they did dry and I put a top coat on, it seem to reactivate the polish and I had to wait all over again. Although they are great for stamping.

I bought a few new polishes, so lets get to them. My husband and I went into the City over the weekend and we stopped in Rite Aid on the way to the subway. I picked up two Brucci’s. How I miss this brand! No store by me carries it anymore. One color I grabbed was a purple with tones of gold shimmer, Kaitlyn’s Deep Violet. The other was a teal color, Gianna’s “Rockin” Blue. So this first mani was with the purple. I did two coats of Kaitlyn’s Deep Violet and then used konad stamp m64. I decided to play up the gold shimmer using Ulta’s High Roller. Subtle, but fun!

Here is Brucci’s Kaitlyn’s Deep Violet on its own. I love the subtle gold tones in it!

Then on Tuesday I stopped by CVS and saw a display of Spoiled by Wet n’ Wild. I picked up three. Jewelry Heist, Ants in my Pants and The Parking Meteor Expired. Jewelry Heist is a glitter polish with large pink and gold glitter and small green and blue sparkles. Ants in my Pants is a red glitter polish.  The Parking Meteor Expired is a black based color with green, purple and blue shimmer.

For this mani i layered Jewelry Heist over Sinful Color’s Black on Black. I wished it laid a little flatter then it did. But it wasn’t terrible. Then I went too far by adding a Kleancolor Metallic Teal tip. blah.

Nail Polish Delivery

I came home yesterday to a package on my stoop….it was the 18 Kleancolor polishes I ordered last week. Yay.

They were all individually wrapped..which was a lot of fun to open each one! They ended up sending two wrong polishes, but thats okay, I decided to keep them anyway. After they were all unwrapped I took a blank nail wheel and filled it up.

I had a bit of a mani fail this morning. Maybe I should have slept an hour later lol.  At first I started off with two coats of Kleancolor’s Pastel Pink such a pretty color, Sinful Color’s Beautful Girl looks peach next to it, it was a lot thicker then I thought it would be and was taking forever to dry.

I nicked it a few times so I decided to take it off. I figured since it was thick it would be perfect for stamping. So I tried another new color from my order for my base, Kleancolor’s Metallic Fuchsia. Wow! What a color! And the formula is great! I only needed one coat, but I can’t help myself and I ended up doing two.

(my camera had a hard time capturing the color and my skin tone correctly, I tried my best to color correct it in photoshop)

Then I used Konad’s plate M69. The Pastel Pink worked great for stamping! Then I put Essie’s To Dry For on top….oops….there goes my pastel pink stamp…it turned into purple, so now it looks like a faint texture…boo.

Booo. Can barely even see it! Oh well, It’s not like it’ll stay on long anyway. lol.  To make things even worse, I dropped my Sally Hansen Green Tea Cuticle oil and it broke…double boo.
