Wet n Wild Fergie Polishes; Glowstick + Tonight’s Going Be A Good Night

Wow that’s a long name for a polish. From here on out Tonight’s Going To Be a Good Night will be TGBGN…Pbbbhht. But Glowstick is first, because I promised it I wouldn’t steal its thunder by showing the combo first. These are both from the Wet n Wild Fergie Collection I found at Walgreens. I wasn’t entirely impressed with all of them but I got 3…here’s 2 together.

Before I say anything about these polishes individually I wanted to mention the brush that comes with it. A few other companies are doing this now. A wide round tip brush. I personally love it. I’ve heard some people say that in this collection its TOO wide and they hate it. I love it still, and I sure if my nail were any smaller it would drive me nuts also. Sooo if you have cute tiny dainty nail beds, keep that in mind.

Wet n Wild Glowstick

WnW Glowstick is 3 coats. Easy to use formula, smooth…but doesn’t dry real fast. And I’m not patient, so this was a little agonizing for me to wait. I like that this isn’t just a plain neon lime green- it has a yellow shimmer to it that is super cool! I’ve been needing more greens, I used to really hate the color but I’m starting to warm up to it a lot lately.

WnW TGBGN  is only one coat over the other. I think the coverage it pretty even surprisingly! When saw this I though it was a black polish with gold hex glitters, but it’s obviously clear based small black hex glitter and large gold hex glitters sprinkled throughout. I can see me wearing this glitter over A LOT of other colors….like all of them. I loooove black glitters and don’t have enough of them.

So any thoughts? I’m always open to opinions and debates!

Sinful Colors Flakies Polish!

So on my weekly visit to Walgreen’s I nearly jumped for joy when I saw that Sinful Colors has their own version of a flakies polish called Green Ocean. It goes with their St. Patrick’s Day display! I honestly can’t tell you what else was on display because when I saw that- that was all I saw! I vaguely remember some skinny striping polishes….probably something they always have though. I’ve noticed that with SC, when they have a holiday display it usually contains colors from their core line. But not always…..especially in this case because I’ve never seen Green Ocean (GO) before. I wish I could have SC other “Ocean’s” a blue and a pink! But the pink is called Deep Red Ocean…? W.e! Picture time!

I’m not sure if I care for it over white….my hubby said it looked like a fungus. GO is a little bit gritty especially if you blob it on like I did on a few fingers. A thicker topcoat would work great. Right now I don’t own any other colored flakies but a short while back Zoya had a promotional thing going on where you got 2 free polishes- you just had to pay shipping. And with my polishes came a color chart with their True collection which has the flakies. I also received the Feel collection color chart with 6 empty spaces…sooooo I decided to fill in one with the GO to compare it that way since I do not actually own any Zoya flakies. I thought at first it might be just like Opal since its green too. But when I pulled the brush out I noticed that there was actual glitters in GO. And in the tray it was a bit less green. Kind of an in between Opal and Maisie( which is blue).

After I bought this I almost immediately regretted not buying a back up. I knew I’d be crazy about this! Luckily I live in a rather small town and when I went back almost a week later there was 2 bottles left so I bought them both!….Sad when you think that even those 2 bottles, actually all 3 are cheaper then a China Glaze or an OPI.

Band wagon…Are you on it??

Hello there!

Do any of you follow the nail trends? A lot of you I’m sure are “crackled” out. I myself am still fascinated with it! But that’s not actually the trend I want to talk about. XD There’s actually 2 others on my mind at the moment.

1st being FLAKIES! Now if you haven’t picked it up by now- I love glitter. Being in MT sucks when you’re trying to get your hands on specific brands such as Finger Paints. Love their special effects polish! I would be so happy to own “Twisted”.  The one and only flaky I have is Essie’s “Shine of The Times”. Quite awesome I think. I don’t own SH original limited edition “Hidden Treasure” but I’ve heard that Shine of The Times is a much denser version of that.

This is Essie Shine of the times over:

Sally Hansen- White On & Black Out

Sinful Colors “Nirvana”  (which is a brown but you probably can’t tell!)

Sinful Colors “Happy Ending”  *green

Wet n’ Wild Wild Shine “Blue Moon”

Kleancolor “Barbie Pink”

Pure Ice “No Means No” *purple

Isn’t that freaking awesome?? Do any of you own this or any other flakies?

So now for the 2nd trend, I don’t own it yet! I’m on the war path for it and its hard to find here. It’s the magnetic polish! It’s an iron filled polish that when a “special” magnet (usually on the cap of the bottle) is held over it it creates a design- usually stripes. I do believe it isn’t way new but for me its only just now becoming available locally. Yes I could buy it online but I’m very leery about spending $12+ for a bottle of nail polish! Icing has come up with their own! So sometime this week I’ll be wiggling my butt into Claire’s (yes, wiggling) because not only are they sister stores with Icing- their nail polishes are exactly the same. Now our mall doesn’t have the Icing store (which btw their “magnetix” is CHEAPER) so I’m going with second best. I’ve also read from many many other nail polish blogs that the magnet for these seem to work better then a few others. I’ve heard that the China Glaze magnet is a big disappointment which is even sadder because they made it U shaped with several designs which I thought was creative. But I think it’s one of the brands that you have to buy it seperate. Maybe there is a few other but none come to mind at the moment. Really quick before I forget- go here if you want a really good FAQ from someone that has actually had the chance to play around with this type of polish in different kinds of brands. Back to about the Icing brand they have for colors with no names that are gold, gunmetal, pink and blue. The pink and blue have a “wavy” design and the other two have straight lines, both with the option to turn the magnet. I guess you wouldn’t really have to use the guides anyway if you were wanting to be extra creative.

So besides the Icing/Claire’s Magnetix, I think Lancôme Vernis Magnétic is awesome because the magnet is attached to the bottle itself on the outside and it makes a star bust design! :O But I’m not sure it’s worth$15.50. maybe if I feel like treating myself for my birthday. 😛

But yea if you’re interested the brands that I know of that are doing this at the moment are nails, inc. (found at sephora) Layla, Lancôme, China Glaze “Magnetix”, Icing/Claire’s “Magnetix” and LCN (which I never heard of before). Thepolishaholic just recently feature a magnetic from You Mix Cosemetics.

Sorry about the length of this post. I could honestly go on all day!
