NARS – Saratoga

I was going to do the new OPI and Zoya purple comparison but I already packed my memory card and camera in my suitcase… I’m off to Colorado Springs today for a 2 day meeting about the next version of my software.

It was snowing there yesterday! I had to go and buy a long wool coat and gloves to go with my scarf and beanie. haha! I’ve been in California since I was 4, so I’m a huge wimp about the cold. Wish me luck. 🙂

Anyway, here is NARS – Saratoga! I found it too light and bright for me since I like darker, richer colors, so I swapped it to Gemma almost immediately. It is like a raspberry tone.

It is really pretty though, and the light really catches all of the warm glints inside!

I’ll be back Saturday. Time to grab my luggage and Xanax for the flight. Eeek.
(Oh, and Wooden Shoe Like to Know didn’t really match my new dark gray jacket and the clothes I’m taking, so I went with Teasey Does It!)

Nox Twilight – Citrus

This one was pretty appropriately named since it really reminds me of pink grapefruit! The shimmer is really warm and contrasts well with the base coral color.

I’m in crazy wedding-planning mode now! I finally have a real wedding date, now that I’ve coordinated with the church, the reception place, my photographer, DJ… and all of the rest! Its May 26th!

Kleancolor – Mud Pie Sparkle

A lot of people blogged about not really liking this one, but I love it! Its odd because its like a coffee brown metallic foily color with black hexagon glitter, but I think its just a really cool and unique polish that doesn’t strike me as ugly at all.

Look at this!

Anyone around that likes this one like I do? 🙂

And oh my god, we gave our deposit to a wedding venue, so its really coming together! I think our wedding date is going to be Cinco De Mayo! 😀

BB Couture – Hammer Drill

I don’t know what took me so long to get this one, its gorgeous!!

Its brown but a little on the red side, and really shimmery!

I’ve gotten into black teal colors lately and I’m doing a swatch wheel to compare them.

When I went to Rite Aid yesterday, they had a few new ones, so if you’re into that type of color, check your drug store. There’s Sally Hansen – Teal-y Fast, Wet N Wild – Teal of Fortune, Maybelline – Cool Couture, and on the same Maybelline display, there is this awesome one called Purple Trend that is actually like a dark burnt red with teal shimmer inside. I’ll post swatches of those soon!

OPI – I Eat Mainely Lobster

When I saw this one in the new collection, I had to get it because its such a pretty bright pink coral color with a matching shimmer.

I feel like it might have been bright enough to throw the picture off a little, so it is a bit brighter than this…

After I had it on, I was like ugh, this does NOT look good on me! Its a shame, I’ll probably swap it away, but it is really pretty in the bottle!
