Icing Green Magnetic Polish

Not too long ago I showed you all Icing's silver magnetic polish. Icing had started out with only 4 magnetic colors, but when I went home they had at least four or five new ones! So I decided to pick up their new green one to wear for St. Patrick's Day.

Green Magnetic, Icing $9
Icing always has their buy one get one half off for cosmetics, so I actually got the polish for $4.50. This one came with the stripe magnet.

This was a very frustrating polish, but I think it was my fault. I didn't take the magnet off the top, so the cap was off of the polish making it get thick as I applied it. So always make sure to either remove the magnet part of the cap off of the part attached to the brush or use another magnet so you can keep the top on. I think this is what also caused all of the bumps in the polish. Lesson learned. And this was after 3 days of wearing and moving back to school so my pinky has a slight chip and there is some tip wear. Sorry!!

Sorry about the application job too, it got difficult to work with as it got thicker. I really love the color though, my nails look like emeralds!

I'm so in love with the magnetic nail polish trend. What do you all think of magnetic polish?

Sinful Colors Cinderella

I'm alive! Yes, I know I promised more posts last week, I just never got around to them :P Keeping up with a blog is hard when you're in college. I've had so much work to do lately. It doesn't mean I'll give up though! I reached over 1,000 page views this week, so that means people are actually somewhat interested in my blog!

Today I have one of my all time new favorite polishes. It has such a hype in the nail polish community, and there's a good reason why. Sinful Colors Cinderella is one of the most amazing blues I've ever laid eyes on. I love it so much that I actually picked up a back up bottle. If you can find it, buy one. Or two. Or every one in the store.

Cinderella is a light blue with small pink flecks in it. One thing I absolutely love is when nail polish names describe the polish so accurately that it's almost sickening. This color really is Cinderella in a bottle.

Sinful Colors Cinderella, Walgreens $1.99
Gorgeous polish for two dollars? Can you say hecka yuh? Sinful Colors has really stepped up their game on colors.They have some really beautiful ones coming out.

For the pictures below I used 3 coats.

The flash does nothing to justify the greatness of this polish, the pictures below though show just how lovely it really is.

Look at that shimmer. In the last picture, the lower left hand corner really shows the pink flecks in the bottle.

On a side note, I won a free bottle of Navigate Her by Essie! Yes, I know I have it already :P I'll probably keep it anyways because it's one of my favorite greens and I've never won anything before!

Do you guys have Cinderella? Are you as in love with it as I am?

Happy reading!

China Glaze Harvest Moon

Hey guys! Sorry I've been so MIA lately. I had midterms last week so I didn't have time to post any of my manis, and most if them didn't turn out great anyways since they were pretty rushed :/ I'll try to have AT LEAST three posts this week since I'm home and my boyfriend will be gone for most of the time I'm here :( And also expect a huge haul video next week! Coming home can be fun ;)

China Glaze Harvest Moon is from the Capitol Colors collection China Glaze released to correspond with the Hunger Games movie. Harvest Moon represents District 9 which produces grain. I was really excited about this color when I first saw it, but to be honest it was just kind of "meh" to me. It wasn't bad by any means, I was just expecting more personally.

China Glaze Harvest Moon, Sally Beauty Supplies $5.99
As always, if you have a beauty club card with Sally's then the polish will be less than the regular price.

The formula for this polish was good, I used about three coats for the photos below.

Sorry about the little traces of Stone Cold in my cuticles, that polish was a pain to remove!

Indoors without flash
I would say the pictures with the flash are a little more accurate color wise. The color is really pretty, but I wasn't blown away with it like I thought I would be. That doesn't mean I wouldn't recommend it or never wear it again. If you're into browns and shimmery colors like this you'll like this color. It's definitely unique.

Sorry again about not posting for a while! I promise I'll have more this week for you all to make up for it!

Happy reading!
