Nail polish haul from bloom.com and drugstore.com! :)
Essie – As gold as it gets (gold glitter topcoat)
Essie – Orange! It’s obvious. A bright red-orange cream. This is my first orange nail polish!
Zoya – Chloe (Fleck glitter!)
Zoya – Bevin => a dusty light jade cream. Also a close dupe for OPI – Thanks a windmillion!
OPI – Wooden shoe like to know (brown with copper glitter)
OPI – I have a herring problem => periwinkle blue with fine silver glitter
Revlon – Whimsical => a dupe for Deborah Lippmann – Glitter in the air! a pastel blue jelly with pink and blue glitters
I actually bought this one off of drugstore.com, not bloom. :D
Oh and if anyone wanted to see a China glaze – For audrey (my all time favorite color!) & Zoya – Bevin comparison (Bevin appears lighter in the bottle than when applied):
Now for swatches! Sorry I didn’t swatch all the colors,I’ll try to do that later when I can find the time! :)
Zoya – Bevin. Excellent dry time and smooth application! (2 coats)
Zoya – Bevin with Essie – As gold as it gets layered over
Zoya – Bevin with Revlon – Whimsical layered over! The glitter is rather hard to control. I had to keep moving the glitters around in order to achieve the look that I wanted. This also contributed to the streaks of baby blue. D: Whimsical’s not the best, but it’s still a nice cheap alternative if you want Glitter in the air!
Zoya – Bevin with Essie – A cut above and Revlon – Whimsical layered over it
Also wanted to show you guys my plant! We had a de-stress event on campus where they let us paint pots and plant flowers. :)
Can you tell that I have a strong color preference? :P
Surprise! Painted the inside too. Bright orange!
I have no idea what seeds they gave me… but they’re beginning to sprout already so I’ll find out soon! :)
This LA sunshine is pretty amazing tosomeone who grew up in a one-season-city (ahem, San Francisco). Everything that I tried to grow in San Francisco pretty much failed. Though I suppose it may have had a lot more to do with my incompetence than SF’s weather!
I feel like I’m turning into a plant hoarder. I’ll show you guys my other mini plants perhaps in my next post? :D
