Polish and other things...

I love nail polish. I go from dark to bright with the occasional neutral thrown in. For the summer I like to keep it bright in fact the brighter the better. Opi has their Mod About Brights Collection. Her eye makeup first caught my attention, I was trying to figure out how I can recreate it then I noticed the colors. The colors are very Crayola crayonish. I have Brights Power and I love it!
Orly has their Hot Stuff which I haven't seen anywhere yet. I may have to stalk - I mean - check out Ulta and CVS.
China Glaze has their Wow Factor Knockout Neons. Check out Clumps of Mascara for swatches.

Not to be out done Sally Hansen has thrown her hat in to the ring by adding colors to their Lacquer Shine line. I think there are about 6 colors but I only got 2, so far.

On the left is Spark, a purple with hints of blue and on the left is Glow, a shimmery apple green. I love Sally Hansen nail products not only do they turn your nails into steel they're so long lasting.

So many colors to choose from...

Other things....

I made a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond yesterday and as always I spent about an hour strolling the makeup section. I picked up some shadows and liquid liner by a brand called KiKi.

From top to bottom: Dune (brown) and Ginger (tan) Eyeshadow. I don't know why they look the same. Liquid liners in Pink, Bronze and Green. I like the liners, they go on smooth and the colors are very vibrant. The shadows I'm still trying to figure out. It was hard for me to get the colors on my brush to swatch them but once I did they spread easily and I really like the shimmer. The color payoff isn't so great but they may make a good base. I'm not used to cream shadows so it may take me a minute to get these to work.

Cream shadows, I find, are tough to work with. Thanks for the love. You know I'm obsessed with pretty nail polishes. I'm sportin' the MAC Neo Sci-Fi yellow polish on the toes. It is fiiiiierce!

ok.. so i'm not quite over opi india collection but i'm so lusting over the mod brights collection. i wasn't at first thinking that i liked the china glaze better cuz it was brighter, but the opi collection feels a bit more ehhh i don't wanna say mature, but i'd feel more comfortable wearing that collection to work.. okay.. i'll say 'wearable' then lol

@ divine blackness - now I know why I stayed away from cream shadows. It was only 1.99 so I'm not mad about it. I am glad I didn't get more.

I'm really feeling that yellow from Neo Sci-Fi and I know the pedicure is looking hot! Don't know how I feel about that price though. lol

@yummy - I hear you about the wearable for work. Both China Glaze and Mod Brights are bright but I think that Mod Brights is a more muted bright if that makes any sense. lol
