holy geesh lots of nail polishes!

So a couple of weeks ago my co worker told me about this place in my city that had some pretty good deals on nail polishes and asked if I wanted to go, of course I said yes! How could I pass up nail polish deals!?

So apparently this place just opened and it had a bunch of different colors. The ones that I bought were China Glaze which were $2.75 a bottle, OPI which were $4.00 a bottle and Zoya which were $3.75 a bottle. I also bought a base coat from CND called Sticky, but we'll get to that later.

Here are the OPIs:
(from left to right)
Hot & Spicy, Gargantuan Green Grape, That's Berry Daring, & Dim Sum Plum



China Glaze:
(from left to right)
Crackle Glaze in Black Mesh, Flyin' High, Snow Globe, Shooting Stars, Inner Beauty, Turned up Turqoise (Neon)



Zoya:
(from left to right)
Frej, Flowie, Maya



Then last the CND Base Coat in Sticky:



Now I do have to say that I've only used a couple of these so far (the minty green polish from OPI, the pink one from Zoya, the fuschia one from OPI, the crackle polish from China Glaze, and the base coat). The crackle polish, I'm in LOOOVE with. They have more colors and I should have got more, I probably will go back and get a couple of other colors because they were selling them for $4 a piece. OHHH & the upside is at this place if you pay cash, they don't tax.

As for the base, I am NOT a fan of it at ALL. I do have to state though that I am a waitress, artist, and I workout 3-4 days a week so I use my hands a LOT. Nail polish does NOT stay on me for very long and I need a base coat that works because my hands are ALWAYS in water. The SAME day of me putting on nail polish (I used the base, the Zoya color in Maya, and Seche Vite as a top coat) and they started peeling already and when I say peeling, it was like I was peeling a sticker off of my nail. I will never use this base EVER again. So forewarning to all. I've also been noticing that Seche Vite is not working for me either. We'll see what I find that will work for me, but for now, here are some prettttty color polishes that I had to snag :)

OMG, I wish OPI was that cheap in the Netherlands, and China Glaze actually available in stores here. A girl can only dream...

Too bad you didn't like the Sticky, I love it. I find it works best if you use some drying product on your nail first so it's perfectly clean from oils and let the base coat dry for a minute.

Stickey does indeed suck. Try Poshe! Thei basecoat is amazing, and their topcoat is like seche vite except for me i find it dries a bit quicker. Anyway...Poshe, definitely. For discount beauty stores, theres one in sf. On ofarrell and polk, that's pretty awesome. And cheap :)
