I think this is by far one of my favorite blues! As a birthday gift to my mom we went and got our nails done. I picked out this color…and of course the next day I was in line at Ulta buying a bottle. It has a little bit of teal and blue shimmer, a purple hue in some lights, I love it!!
Spring is finally here, although you wouldn’t know it by the dreary day we had. To celebrate I decided on a pastel..with a twist. I bought Sinful Color’s Zeus a while ago and haven’t had the chance to try it. It’s a pretty, dusty purple with pink shimmer. I did two coats of Gelous and then two coats of Zeus. I thought I’d give my dotting tools another go, this time with OPI’s Yoga-Get-This-Blue.
I was extremely excited to see an Ulta coupon hanging out in my mailbox on Saturday. Instantly I knew Sunday was going to be good! I wandered around Ulta for a little while, I must of had three or four different color combinations in my hand, a few Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear, one of their new Gem Crushes, then I had a Zoya in the mix. Finally, I settled on two China Glazes and Sally Hansen’s Tea Tree Cuticle Oil. The two colors I settled on were Urban Nights, a dark plum and Flyin High, a light tealish blue. For my Sunday Manicure I decided to go with the Urban Nights. This is the first China Glaze polish that I bought, and was a little worried when I saw how the first coat went on…streaky…but as soon as the second coat was applied it looked awesome. I ended up doing three coats and decided to do a black leopard Konad over it. Its subtle, but nice and dark for winter. I decided to add some sparkle in the form of One Less Lonely Glitter by Nicole by OPI on my ring fingers. I topped it off with 1 coat of Seche Vite and 1 coat of Essie To Dry For. Here’s a picture before the Konading.
Then I used Konad’s Special Nail Polish in Black and Konad leopard print plate.
I also wanted to show you the new Sinful Color polish I got last week. Mercury Rising, its a shimmer dark brown. I did two coats of that and then used tape with Ulta’s High Roller, wasn’t to happy with it, looked a little to star-trekie for me-I only left it on for a day…if that.
