Hello hello all you beautiful little cabbages.
After a full week vacation Mr. NB planned, pickle and nailblog has returned!
Despite living in Arizona for a good chunk of my life, I have never seen the Grand Canyon or been to the famous Sedona area (a vortex full of crystals, psychics, love energy and metaphysics). There were also a few more surprises in store: checking out Jerome, an artist community that Maynard calls home to his own winery (fan girl), as well as galactic size meteors and the arduous hunting of vegan food in unfamiliar territory.
Tons of pictures, all unrelated to NB so I’ll just leave them here after the jump…
I love how this looks in person so much that I’m making it Nailblog’s spirit animal for the day.
Using Lime Crimes “PEACHES ♥ CREAM” and a basic black from Sally Hansen.
Over the weekend spotted the entire China Glaze “Glitz Bitz ‘n Pieces” collection on clearance at Sally’s – $2.69/bottle!
$2 .69/Bottle – not bad!
An emerald green hex glitter in small, medium and larger size accompanied by black bars and black hex glitter in small, medium and larger sizes.
‘Scattered & Tattered”
A rosey pink hex glitter in small, medium and larger size accompanied by black bars and black hex glitter in small, medium and larger sizes.
An older collection from January/February 2013 so not new news however a bit of a rundown on performance -
Chunky. Not terribly so, but the positive of that means good coverage. Mainstream lacquer companies seem to have such a hard time getting their glitter to give good! While I love this collection, I do also wonder why mainstream lacquer companies feel the urge to put bar glitter in 3/4 of their “unusual” glitter polishes. Curious..
While Sallys are typically independent and their variety, let alone clearance, varies it’s a good reminder to check it whenever you stop by!
Color Club came out with a black holo named “Revvvolution” (complete with 3 v’s) back in 2009 as part of their Femme Fatale collection.
Now, as part of a 2013 collection, they’ve come out with another named “Beyond”.
Which will come out on top?
