Happy Birthday!!!

Friday, June 24th was my birthday .. Yea, Happy Birthday to me!! I have been waiting for this day for sooo long because on June 5th, I decided to go on a no-buy until my b-day. I know I know you're saying WTF? That's only 3 weeks! But come on y'all. That's a long time! Imagine going 3 weeks without one of your favorite things...yea, I know it's hard right? Anyways, on to my mini polish haul...

Yea!! I finally have some Jesse's Girl polish!! This is Crush & Glee. Polish Galore did a very nice blog comparison of Crush vs Zoya Jancyn. Glee reminds me of OPI Catch Me in Your Net. I will have to do a Dupe comparison of these.

Petites Color Fever in Daze and 24K Gold. Daze is like a green apple/lime green glass flecked polish. Another dupe I will have to compare is this 24K Gold & Milani Gold Glitz. They look exactly the same!

My last post said that I hated Crackle/Shatter polishes, but I think they're growing on me. I guess because so many new colors & brands are popping up...this is Sally Hansen Distressed Denim Crackle & Lilac Chantilly from the SH Diamond Strength line. I can't wait to try this gorgeous blue crackle with a gold glitter base coat (probably Nicole by OPI Twist of Fate) I've swatched the LC, it looks like a light purple chrome polish.

Ok I have never owned any of this brand, but I love love this color. It is CQ Rustic Dream. It looks like iridescent but probably more duochrome with shots of pink & orange (this pic is no good). Wet n Wild Dark Shadow is a black w/silver glitter, and Black Fog is a sort of Navy Blue/Black creme. It almost looked a bit purple when I swatched it.

These will be some of my Fall 2011 Favs, even though they are from Fall 2010. Sally Hansen Mochachino, Jumpin Jade & Purple Bolt. This Insta-Dry formula is awesome!!!

Nina Ultra Pro Blu Blaze. I thought it would be a bright Neon Turquoise, but it's not very bright at all, it's very transparent & dark. LA Colors...don't know color name, but it is a turquoise & purple glitter, & Sinful Colors Open Seas from their Adventure Island Collection. I can't tell this polish & OPI Mermaid Tears apart..They are exact dupes!! 
SN: Enter TraceFacePhiles "...just because!" giveaway here to win a set of the new OPI Nice Stems minis and Serena Glam Slam...Good Luck!!!
