Seriously. How will you ever choose?
Eagerly awaiting new pics of Zoyas from you and Adorame.

My polishes finally came in! I'm in the midst of AP studying, so I can't experiment yet, but I'm so excited! The fleck effect is so tempting:

I want Zuza! How do you like it? I have and love Charla but have only worn it on my toes. I want Zuza for my fingers (and toes!).

I'm currently wearing Milani Key West. It appears more blue in the photos, but it's more teal green. The first photo is closest, but it's much shinier IRL.
Zuza is very pretty, but it chipped so easily! I don't have very good luck with my fingers, though, so next time I think I'll use it for a pedicure (I can get a pedicure to last for weeks!)

I chose Zoya's Zuza! Its such a lovely eye catching shade of color. I had read on a few nail blogs that you might want to use a base coat with this color, a few girls that did swatches had staining. I used 1 coat of base coat, 2 coats of Zuza and then 2 layers of top coat to protect from chipping. I am Happy to report that after giving my 3 Yorkies a bath, I am still chip free!

adorame06, we have very similar wedding sets!

My Zuza chipped the first day. I don't know why I have such terrible luck with chipping polish on my fingers. I've yet to find a top coat that actually helps.

Deborah Lippmann Supermodel.

My mother gave me a kit for my birthday, and this was one of the colors. It was way too sheer for fall and winter, so I'm trying it now.

This is my first jelly polish. It really is like the stuff inside a doughnut. Squishy, color saturated, yet see through, like lucite.

The color is a bit warm to be really flattering on me, but it's interesting. I did the accent nail by making a jelly sandwich with Nubar 2010.

*wolf whistles at Rouquinne*
On my toes I have Wet n Wild Megalast Heatwave. The color is between red and orange, leaning slightly red. It is bright, but not reflective tape bright. I really like this color. I can't wait to try it on my nails.
I have Essie Nice is Nice on my nails. I did a newspaper mani with the bar codes from the newspaper. If I get to CVS this week (I hear Spoiled polishes will be 99 cents), I'g going to try scanning my nails in the big red magic coupon machine. I mean, I kind of HAVE to try it. Don't you think?
The only nail I messed up on is the index finger. I had go over part of that nail a second time. It still looks pretty good.

Just thought I'd share this with y'all in case anyone is interested in signing up. I came across this monthly subscription service (think Birchbox, if you're familiar) and although it's normally $19.95 I found a discount code making it only $5 for the first delivery. Please note you WILL have to cancel if you don't want to receive the next delivery at the full price. Their website says they send an email before the shipment is sent so you can cancel or skip if you want to, but since I just signed up I can't comment on how it all works. You get two nail polishes and a mani/pedi scrub.

Julep Nail Polish and click the "Julep Maven" tab at the top. It has you take a style quiz and picks out what to send you based on that, but do note you can also look at the other selections and choose to add one of those to your cart instead if you don't like what it picked out for you. When you're checking out enter code GIRLYENTHUSIAST and it should take your order down to $5 and select the free shipping option.

I'm classic with a twist.

ETA: Apparently I could earn a free month for every two friends that sign up, but I'm not industrious enough to take advantage of such a thing it appears because I can't figure out how that works.

Ok, I'm not an idiot and I figured it out. Duh.

I feel like I sound like an info-mercial pyramid scheme. Seriously, just thought some of y'all might want a couple of free nail polishes that look like they could be pretty good.

I was originally looking to see if there is such a thing as a Birchbox discount code and found this instead on someones blog. Either way I'm shopping in my PJ's and that's fun.

I have no polish on my nails or toenails

I feel so naked!

I've been too busy to polish and let dry. I need to get a quick dry polish in red.

Spring, I just signed up. Thanks! Three polishes for five bucks? I'm in!

ETA: I got "It Girl" - something about a rock and roll edge which is how I picture myself even if I don't always dress that way!

Iroc- Get a quick dry top coat. I have the Essie quick dry top coat. It is the only quick dry top coat I've ever used, but I really like it. It dries my nails quickly and I don't get dents and impressions in my nails as they dry anymore.

Nails - bare as the day they were born. Soon to be Lacey Lilac (Sally Hansen).

p.s. Thanks whoissugar for making my nails seem like stubs.

p.p.s. Thanks Broadway Nail Real Life Brush On Gel "Nails Made Simple" for being worthless to me.

p.p.p.s. Why did I start watching Youtube nail polish videos? I'm hooked on them! I really want to try the marbling.
