06/22/13 - Stash Update

So you haven't heard from me in a while because I had finals week and then had to move back home and just haven't quite settled in yet. Buuut I have been buying nail polish ever since I finished school, now that I have the opportunity to buy in person.

First, at Fred Meyer, I bought
Sally Hansen - Snappy Sorbet, Sally Hansen - Fuzzy Fantasy, and Maybelline - Clearly Spotted.
Here's a couple possible scenarios for Clearly Spotted:
Then at the mall I went a little overboard and came home with six polishes.
Icing - Frost Yourself, Icing - Queen Bee, Kleancolor - TLC, Kleancolor - Mermaid, Jcat - Mango, Love & Beauty - Light Yellow, and Love & Beauty - Emerald.
I've never heard of Jcat before, but I'm quite curious.
You may also notice that Mango and Light Yellow look nearly identical. Well, it's true. I'm trying to find a really light yellow polish. Once home, however, I realized that not only are they both nearly identical, but they're also very similar to Lime Crime - Crema de Limon. Here's a quick side by side, in order: Lime Crime, L&B, Jcat:
Oops. Jcat's a little lighter, so I'm leaving that alone. But I have plans to try my hand at frankening with white and Light Yellow. Wish me luck!
Also, here's a couple coats of Icing - Queen Bee.
I'm finding the formula a little tricky, but the glitter is so much fun I'm trying not to notice.
I also picked up this pack of brushes at the Daiso store, which is basically a Japanese dollar store:
The quality is... marginal, but that's to be expected for a $1.50. I might experiment with cutting them to size, since I'm not really losing much if I screw up.

Well, I thought I was done, but then I went to Ross and picked up this twin set:
I'm giving the pink to my grandma, but the purple is Orly - Velvet Rope, and it's staying. :)
Whew! I'm also lusting after several polishes online, but I don't want to spend the money, so hopefully these cheapie polishes will sustain me. :)

Happy polishing, everyone!
