I present to you sally hansen extreme, cherry red. I love a good red, and this goes on nice and smooth (it also happens to be the color I wore for my wedding!)Here's a bonus pic of me (with my maid of honor :) on my wedding day, you can barely see it but the nails are cherry red!

Lilly Pulitzer is my absolute favorite designer/ lifestyle brand. Everything she does is so happy and cheery,you just can't help smiling! When I found out that mac was doing a lillyland collection I've been counting down the days! My package arrived yesterday and of course I had to do my nails right away. This color is coconut ice, it's a pale peach color, and looks great with fair skin. This is two coats, I think it would look even better with three, but I stopped at two. Definitely one of my new faves! (I'll have some pics of the other lillyland color, steamy, up later)

I decided to give the sally hansen insta dri's another try when I saw this color in the store. My first experience with the brush left me swearing I would never use another one again! I had a much easier application this time. The brush will never be my favorite but at least I found it workable this time (and the fast drying part doesn't hurt either!)

As promised, here's a pic of the sally hansen pacific blue I picked up yesterday on lunch break. This is the first blue that I have liked on myself, and one of the few I own (I also have a blue sparkle pure ice polish that I never wear). It's bright but not garish, check it out below:

Ok, so I've bought 5 bottles in the past 2 days, but they were all under $5, so that doesn't make me too out of control right? I was out with the husband at Kmart over the weekend and ran into a new display of wet n wild polish. The bottles are round with little black tops, and the colors are all right up my alley, lots of pinks, reds, vampys, and coral! I picked just one to try out the new megalast formula. I love it, it's $1.99 but the quality is comparable to opi, (i'm only on day 2 of wear, so I can't speak for longevity yet) it goes on smooth and even. I picked up through the grapevine. Next up are some bottle pics, below is a pic of the new wet n wild, and a sally hansen xtreme called wet cement. This is another one I can't wait to try, i swatched it to my nail wheels over the weekend and it's so smooth and creamy!
Below are three more that I picked up sally hansen insta dri in mint sprint. Keep in mind I own two other insta dri's and hated the brush, but i'm gonna try again cuz this color is just too great. The bottle in the middle is pacific blue, I am not a big fan of blue polish, but this color was calling my name, lol. The bottle on the far right is "in the spotlight" it's a clear polish with silver holo strips in it. I've been getting into glitter more recently cuz it can easily save a smudged mani. If i don't have time to redo, I just add a glitter topcoat, and all smudges are camoflaged.
