You Say Hello, And I Say Holo! (Nic's Sticks Rainbows End)

*Nics Sticks Rainbows End*
(4 coats)

Rainbows End is a beautiful linear holo (quite rare now a-days) that has a tan beige base to it. Both this and its sister Silver-ella have been surfacing at a lot of stores like Ross. I got mine from aveyou.com! Unfortunately, I completely forgot to use an aqua base, which made application a total PITA. But its so pretttttty. I'm willing to forgive :D

Believe it or not, this was my first ever true linear holo I've ever worn. I do love the look, but honestly I'm a little to lazy to track them down!

Also, was not a fan of the Nics Sticks brush, it was very mop-ish. I thought the pen would be easy to apply but it felt so big and awkward in my hands, maybe I just need more practice at it.

So, did any of you watch True Blood on Sunday? I'm not completely sure what to think just yet! Wish Eric got more screen time *swoon* his speech on the episode gave me shivers :) too much info? yeah...have a great night everyone!

OPI Houston We Have A Takeoff ?

*OPI Houston We Have A Purple*
(2 coats)

Haha when I got this polish and was telling my sister about it I said "Yeah, it's one of the new sorbet things. Its called houston we have a purple...you know like Houston we have a takeoff!"

...what? Dunno what I was thinking haha but my sister thought it was funny :)

Anyway Houston We Have A Purple is the darkest shade of the Texas jellies. Most people say it doesnt look purple at all, but I think it does lean purple in certain lights. I thought this would be my favorite of the jellies, but I think I like the others better.

meh, not much else to say really. It's kind of rainy and gross where I live so my mood has matched that, I spent the day watching sex & the city (which I dont even like that much) and then like 5 solid hours of Project Runway.

Is anyone going to be sporting Zoya Sooki in honor of True Blood coming back on Sunday? I'm MUCHO excited because I'm so sad Game of Thrones is over but True Blood will ease the pain :D

OPI Steady As She Rose

*OPI Steady As She Rose*
(2 coats, no topcoat)

At first look, Steady As She Rose may fade to the background next to the other pirates of the Caribbean colors, but it is one of my favorites! Steady as she Rose is a grey-ed out light pink-y purple shade, pretty unique! And the big bonus here is that it is opaque in 2 coats :D

The PotC collection really crept up on me...I didnt think I would like it at first but it is definitely my favorite OPI collection in a long time. I still need to get my hands on Mermaid's Tears and Sparrow Me the Drama...I'm thinking of getting those Sinful Colors dupes that came out.

In other news I finally got a good quality nail file and my life has changed! Haha, seriously I didnt know what I was missing out on...it works so beautifully! So if you dont have one I highly suggest picking one up!

Yep. Have an awesome day!
