Since the sale ends tomorrow, 2/28/15, I figured I'd swatch some of the colors I picked up so you can go grab them if somethin' tickles your fancy. Check out these 4 polishes after the jump!

Forget Me Not Friday - BOOTIE BABE: Tail Spin

Pin It
Bootie Babe Tail Spin

First and foremost we must address the fact that some pigment has settle on the bottom of this polish NBD. BUT because it's a butt shaped bottle, (not so) sadly it settled in the "crotch" part of the bottle... the pigment is bright orange... HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHSHHHAHAHAHAHA ok done being a 10 year old boy. But that's freakin' perfect and hilarious!

Today I have swatches of a Bootie Babe polish I bought sometime last summer. I've given this brand away as a gift and a giveaway item because the bottle and the polish names are so fun and the polishes are pretty nice, too. Did you know these polishes are made by Nubar? I had no idea until just now!

Tail Spin is a caramel-y, chocolate, medium brown creme polish with strong gold shimmer running through it. This is super pretty! Y'know I have a ton of polishes with awesome gold shimmer, but I don't think I have a brown one? I'm lovin' it.

I did 2 coats of Tail Spin. The application was great: smooth and easy to work with. It built up nicely, and I was super happy 2 coats was good to go. No complaints on the dry time either.

So there you have it! I won't lie - I kind of forgot these polishes were even a thing. Now that I know they're made by Nubar and I enjoy that brand, I think I'll look into them a little more. Because I need more untrieds.

Happy Friday,
I bought this myself. Is that good enough for you, Federal Trade Commission?

Forget Me Not Friday - WET N WILD: Mega Rocks Rising Star & Bundle Monster BM-317

Pin It
Wet n Wild Mega Rocks LE Rising Star

It's Friday and once again I bring youuuuuuu: FORGET ME NOT FRIDAY! This was a limited edition Wet n Wild Mega Rocks polish I picked up last end of summer/fall/sometime in 2014 (Just looked it up - Halloween 2014). You know, now that I moved... I really miss being around 3 Walgreens :[ Oh, well! Here's this weeks polishhhhhhhh!


Please forgive the condition of my skin. It had a freakout moment the other day for some reason. Then I wasn't paying attention and clipped a chunk out of my skin. #life Cross your fingers my insurance approves me getting a lightbox for at home phototherapy treatments!

Wet n Wild Mega Rocks LE Rising Star

Wet n Wild Mega Rocks LE Rising Star

Rising star is a rose gold appearing polish, a clear based filled with gold and iridescent microflakie shimmer and light pink small and tiny hex. Ok, so it's not a total "FMNF" because I did swatch it over a base color once :X It's a great way to add a little shimmer on top of another color and it looked really nice. Although it gives me the lobster hands, it really enjoy it being built up on its own. It kind of reminds me of Julep Love, but with pink glitter.

I did 3 coats of Rising Star on bare nails. I really like how well this looks without a base coat and the fact that you don't need like 10 coats to make it opaque haha. It had a nice smooth application despite everything that is packed into it. I had no issues with dry time.

Bundle Monster plate BM-317 stamping

Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow and I happened to find my stamper finally, I decided to stamp over the pretty glitter! I used images from BM-317 along with Lakur Weekend Cheers (pink) and China Glaze Hey Sailor (red). I guess we can add this to Forget Me Not Friday because I've never used this plate LOL!

Sorry to swatch an LE polish this week, I'll try to find more current polishes to swatch for next week :P It was too pretty not to share! Although, I was Googling the price of the Mega Rocks and saw a few Rising Stars listed on eBay!

Happy Fridayyyyy (the 13th MWAHAHAHA)!

Forget Me Not Friday- RAINBOW HONEY: Lumine Hall

Pin It
Rainbow Honey Lumine Hall

Welcome back to my Friday post! This week I have a polish from Rainbow Honey that I've been hanging on to for way to log LOL. Check out Lumine Hall, a pretty dark blue glitter, down below!

Rainbow Honey - Lumine Hall

Rainbow Honey - Lumine Hall
Lumine Hall is a "dark indigo jelly glistening with the iridescent glitters and shimmers of your deepest thoughts…" I bought this back it was born, when the Summer of 199X Collection released. Sooo it's been a minute LOL. Anyways, this polish is filled with awesome glitters and shimmer in a deep, dark blue base. I meannnnn, look at that macro. Those tiny gold flakie glitters are awesome. Don't even get me started on those iridescent squares!

I did 2 coats of Lumine Hall over Pure Ice Last Chance, plus SuperChic Lacquer Marvel Top Coat. I probably didn't need to layer, but it provided a more opaque look in the end. The application was smooth and easy to apply. I did go over it a few times to disperse the squares a little more. Dry time was great, no issues :]
