Hey everyone, today I just have a quick post to show some old nail art.
I did these nails as an entry to a competition just as I was getting hardcore into nail art!

Aren't these silly?

As you can see I wasn't the best nail photographer then.
The colors I used were:
Orange: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Sun Kissed
Yellow: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Mellow Yellow
Green: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Going Green
Blue: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Blue Me Away!
Purple: Claires - Tahiti Purple
Black: LA Colors Art Deco - Black

For these I used a small brush, the art deco brush, and a lot of patience.

Aren't we all happy I got better at nails and also at taking pictures of them? Hah!

Today I acquired quite a bit of nail polish...

Click to see those babies up close!
OPI - Dim Sum Plum
LA Girl Color Addict - Obsess (very appropriately named)
LA Girl (New nude collection, no exact name on bottle) - Secret
Color Club - Catwalk Queen 7 piece set (Thank you Winners!! :D)
I'm sure I will be using/swatching some of these very shortly. Stay tuned!

Edit: While looking at swatches, I've just noticed that my Color Club collection is missing the lovely lavender holo that is Fashion Addict! What the hell?!
There is a dusty mauvey purple in it's place! I need to go back to Winners and see if they all are missing the holo goodness!!!
(Also WTH is that purple one and where did it come from?!)


  1. Nice haul!

    Did you find cracked concrete yet? I can look for it here if you want?? :o)

  2. Haven't got it yet, my Sallys is supposed to restock on Tuesday, and both of the Chatter's salons here haven't received theirs yet.
    I'll get it here Tuesday if not earlier! But thanks anyway darling :)

  3. oh noooooo i cant get the tetris music out of my head. adorable though (=

    and wtf about the missing polish??

  4. I know right?! I'm going to check tomorrow to see if the other sets have the correct polish.
    Winners gets stuff that other stores can't sell/send back (which is why it's so lucky to find these collections - they aren't sold here normally) so it is possible that the right ones were swapped out long before the polishes arrived here. :(

  5. it looks like the dusty purple that's in the alter ego set...!

  6. hmm, it could be, but I just looked up swatches of it and it is described to be more of a purple taupe like china glaze below deck, and this isn't taupey at all.
    and that would be SO WEIRD because that is a new collection!! hahaha

  7. Hey, those remind me of the Rubik's Cube :)


  8. I went to Sally's today and they had all the ChG crackles, so of course i had to get them all!!!

  9. Sweet! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
