BAM Bitches! Spring is here! (Current polish obsession)

Excuse the profanity in the title, but for the first time in my life I’m purposely following a “fashion trend,” therefore I felt it necessary to go over the top.

So if you follow fashion blogs or read magazines, then you have probably read all of them tootin’ and hollerin’ about how pastels are in for the spring. The thing that gets me though is that, aren’t pastels ALWAYS the “thing” for spring. Whatever.

Anywhosizzles, back to my post. So this week I’m feeling very spring-y so I wanted to wear a fun color that reflected that. Hence my lavenderish nails ūüôā

I love purple so of course it would only  be fitting that my first post about  nail polish be purple.

Color: The color that I am wearing is called “Fun in the Sun” by L.A Colors. It’s a gorgeous pastel purple with a semi-matte finish.

Lasting Power: Okay¬†here is¬†the bummer. I put this nail polish on and it chipped within a day. While this could be because I¬†didn’t¬†wear a top¬†coat¬†or base coat, I have found LA Colors to be a very cheap company. BUT, I am okay with that because I hate wearing¬†the¬†same nail polish for more than a week….don’t ask me why…it’s just a “thing” that I have.

Higher End: If you are a nail polish¬†snob and refuse to wear anything worth $1.50 from¬†the¬†drugstore, O.P.I has a great dupe called “A Grape Fit.”

Overall: Obsessesed with this color, can’t get enough of it! By the way, fellow bloggers¬†and¬†readers, this is probably the simplest you will ever see my nails. As I stated in my confessions blog, I love the bling, but being weary of scaring off my readers, I toned it down for you, but as you can see, I couldn’t resist a little accent glitter ¬†ūüôā

Confessions of a Nail Polish Junkie

Sigh. I’ve hit an all time low. I went to¬†Walgreen’s¬†to get a replacement foundation, and ended up with 5 new nail polishes! You might¬†be¬†saying what’s the big deal, its only 5, well if you knew I already had 92 (not including the 15 I gave my sister) you might have a different answer.

So this obsession started with a navy blue polish from N.Y.C for $0.99. I thought I was the shiz nitz rocking blue nails! Shoot I flashed my hands whenever I could. Eventually, I got tired of the blues and thought, hmmm let me try this color then that color and oh that looks nice then…..argghh shake my head in shame.

But ladies it doesn’t just stop there. GLITTER! GLITTER is my downfall. If it sparkles and I can paint it on my nails, then trust when I say I got it. Shoot, my ¬†glitter¬†obsession¬†got so bad last summer that I binged on¬†eBay¬†and bought a 24 pack of glitter dust from China just so I can just dunk my nails in them.

Yup…I’m obsessed.

This week I will be sharing with you guys some of my favorite brands, colors and designs ūüôā I hope you all enjoy.
