Nail Swatch: Multi-Colored Glitter by Wet n' Wild (16)

So I'm super behind on these Nail Swatches/Reviews. I have like 5 of these I need need to post. Due to school and family i have had no time to really post a whole lot and so i get way far behind untill i sit for like a week and do nothing but post.
So on to the Reveiw. This is one of my oldest polishes. I have had this since i was 12. It is an old school Wet n' Wild nail polish. They didnt name thier polishes back then so hince the name.
Reveiw 8/10
Dry Speed: 2 points- I dont know if the age of the polish is affecting it or what, but it dried super fast.
Application: 2 points- for how old this polish is it goes on so nice. I felt I had the best control with the brush, the polish wasn't to thick like I would expect from an old polish.
Price: 2 points- So i was like 12 and had no concept of money back then. So i got this because it was right near the check out stand. I dont remember prices but everything was cheaper back in the day.
Wear- 1 point: I got only 3 days wear before i noticed chips. This is also a thin glitter so it was harder to notice the chipping.
Opaque-1 point: like most older glitter polishes this was thin and saw more clear coat but at the same time you can really tell the colors of the glitter.

Until next time...

A girl from school used the greens ad the combo of the two is really pretty.

China Glaze Crakle

Finally got my hands on the moch sought after Crackle polishes. I have all of the colors. I tried to show the casheirs at sally's how it worked and i had painted my nails earlier. I used the Sache Vite Top coat, and it didnt work at all. I have seen this work on girls in class, so i will try it without the Sache Vite. and sspeeking of which i need to get another bottle im running low. Does anyone know of a decent base coat? mine doesnt seem to work my polish startes to chip aft like 3 days if im lucky.

Beauty Swap with Canada

So once upon a time a beautiful girl read that another beautiful girl who lived in the far away land of canada had never tried Sinful Colors nail polish. So the beautiful girl offered to do a make-up swap. Both girls talked about what they liked and disliked and liked, items they each wanted to try and so on. Packages were sent and finally after 2 weeks of waiting they each got their respective packages.
Joann sent me so many amazing things.
Quo (Canadian line)
2 eyeshadow trios
2 eyeliners
2 lipglosses
2 lip glosses
The Body shop
2 shea body butters
It was all wrapped so pretty. I almost didnt open any of it, but then my curiosity killed the cat, mean got the better of me.
I have tried the eyeshadow and one of the lipglosses. It is really very pretty. I'll be putting up reviews soon.

Until next time...

Project Garden Day 3!

Come on grow baby GROW!
ugh! Day three and nothing
*spray with water*
 Holy snap LOOK!
I have sprouts
*happy dance*
*Checks what is growing*
Spinach Mustard, ok not my first pick to grow first but still 3 DAYS!
*sprays with water*
This is a recount of how i was when i went to go water my plants today. now lets hope i can get them into bigger pots without killing them. I need to dig out the dixie cups.

Nail Swatch: Concrete by Sally Hansen (15)

This is a random polish I picked up while browsing walgreens. Usually right by the beautysection is two aisles where they keep new collections of make-up and polish. Around November they had put out a collection from Sally hansen that had like 12 new colors. This was one that I grabbed first because it was a gray toned color and I thought it would match my purse. This color sadly is a little too purple for that.
Review 8/10
Dry Speed: 1 point- Nothing special, dried at normal speed.
Application: 2 points- Medium sized brush that spread evenly to get full coverage.
Price: 2 points- Got this on BOGO 1/2 off, so it was like $1.50
Wear: 1 point- Chipped after 4 days.
Opaque: 2 points- Completely covered in one coat but did two for safety. Also I noted that this polish darkened as it dried. It was wierd but cool.

Until next time...

Nail Swatch: Catch the Bouque by Orly(14)

I got this polish on sale at sally's. I had never used Orly before I got this polish. I loved the soft petal pink, it was also unique in its shimmer. It's silver but in some lights it looks almost blue. The shimmer wasn't too bad to remove. I think over all I only had one or two peices of shimmer on one nail. i also wore this polish for formal pics with my boyfriend.
Review 6/10
Dry Speed: 1 point- Average dry time. I can't really think of any difference from any of my other polishes.
Application: 1 point- The glitter/shimmer pooled at the tip of my nail and didn't spread evenly.
Price: 2 points- Got this on sale for 3.50, normal price is only $5.00
Wear: 1 point- Wore down and started to chip at day 3, major damage after day 4.
Opaque:1 point- Was a little sheer but it wasn't noticable without looking.

Until next time...

Newest Project: Project Garden

So i love fresh veggies and fruits and herbs. I have tried to grow things since i was like 16. So far they have been ok but my dad sees on spot of yellow and he throws the whole thing away. So now i have talked to my boyfriend and he's going to let me put them at his place once they are bigger. I got these at the dollar store so it will be interesting to see if they grow.

The first pic is what it looked like once i had planted the new seeds.

 The next two pics are after the first day after i watered. Ill be posting daily pics of my plants to show you guys how they are are coming along.

 Day two: still nothing but watered them. Packages says that it should be about 7 days for the seeds to grow sprouts.

I cant wait to see when they start growing.
Until next time...
