I didn’t expect to like this one as much as I did. It seemed to glow from within though, and I just couldn’t stop taking photos - it was that pretty.

Barielle - Sheer Nonsense

COATS:
1
SOURCE:
Barielle.com
COMMENTS:
This polish was everything but “sheer” as the name suggests. Superb 1-coat coverage meant I could get right to the nail art.

COMMENTS:
This was the my right hand along with yesterday's mani. Same stamped pattern, but in white - making it look similar to my Deborah Lippmann mani from the previous day.

COMMENTS:
I took advantage of an amazing Valentine's day deal from Barielle and this was the first one of the lot that I decided to wear. At 3 coats, it required some patience from me, but gave me full coverage then.

Blackheart Beauty - Splatter Teal

COATS:

SOURCE:
Hot Topic
COMMENTS:
There was a time when I was gaga over speckled polishes like this. I still like them a lot, but don't feel like I need to keep all the ones I acquired over the years.  This is another one that can go to a good home. I enjoyed wearing it though.

Rite Aid
COMMENTS:
This is one I've had for a number of years (this brand isn't made/sold anymore here) and I held on to it because I hadn't tried it yet.  Now I have, and can safely send it on to another good home.

COMMENTS:
I like this one, but for some reason not enough to keep it. I see how lovely it is when I look back at the photos, but I didn't have the same feeling while wearing it. Ah well...

Frankened Beige Blast = Blue Blast?

COATS:
3
SOURCE:
Franken = Sally Hansen Beige Blast + Mia Secret Blue Tint
COMMENTS:
After wearing Sally Hansen Beige Blast, I knew I wouldn't be wearing it as it was again, so I added some Mia Secret Blue Tint to it to get another mani out of the polish.  Of course the tint didn't contribute anything in terms of opacity - this still took 3 coats.

Nothing like a 1-coater to make for a quick mani.

Once again I couldn't decide which color to wear first, so I chose to wear both of these lovely vibrant shades at the same time.

Sally Hansen - Camo Queen

COATS:
1
SOURCE:
Walgreens
COMMENTS:
This is one of those colors that people either love or hate.  I loved that it gave me excellent coverage in 1-coat, but found the shade a bit dull to wear on its own. As usual, I threw added a little something to make it more wearable.
