I received a great rewards coupon to Sally’s Beauty Supply, so I recently took a trip to pick up a new fun & bright Gelish polish color for my vacation next week, and I left with quite the haul!
I picked up a neon orange and a neon pink shade! I adore the names 🙂
They are super bright, but exactly what I was looking for!
Sallys always has some decent items on clearance, so I went to browse and saw that there were a handful of China Glaze colors for only $1.50 a piece! I’m sorry, but how exactly does one pass that up?!
The colors looked familiar, after reading the names I realized that they were from the China Glaze Hunger Games collection.
When they released this collection a few months ago I was on my Gel manicure spree and had opted out of purchasing any regular polishes. I’m not strictly using gel anymore, and these colors are perfect for Fall!
The problem with having so many gorgeous new polishes is deciding which one you’re going to wear first!
I swear I have this exact color (below) from maybe 4 different brands lol. But it’s a Fall/Winter fave!
The only other Hunger Games color they had was Mahogany Magic, which was too much of a muddy brown for me. I really wish they had Electrify!
Regardless, I’m super excited about my new colors! My current Gel manicure is going on 17 days…
…It’s coming off Friday, and I will replace it with one of those fabulous neons!
Which one of the two neon shades do you think should I wear on vacation next week: Tiki Tiki Laragana or Shake it Till You Samba? What was the best deal you’ve ever snagged on a bottle of nail polish?
After about a 3 week hiatus, I am back on my gel manicures! I was missing my long lasting, shiny, strong manicures. After posting about the new Gelish Candy Land Collection I was dying to pick up their new yellow shade “Don’t Be Such a Sourpuss”.
I was so excited that there was one left…it appeared to be a pastel-yellow, but when I took a closer look, it was much more Frenchs Mustard-ish…with a hint of shimmer. I was so bummed, I didn’t end up getting it 🙁
This Sallys had a poor selection of Gelish colors in general, so I didn’t end up buying anything new. I got home and decided to work with colors I already had.
I used Rendezvous, a deep magenta/pink on all of my fingers except for my thumb, and ring finger…which were painted with Starburst.
UPDATE: (I like to note the longevity of my gel manicures) I tweeted a picture of my manicure on day 11…it was still holding up, but I am really ready for a change.
