Day 74- Sinful Colors in Gogo Girl (58)

This pure, clean, HOOKER red, is prefect for any budding polish enthusiast. Pure red is really hard for some to pull off, and if your one of those ladies the good thing is that this can very easily be used for nail art. This is not in my local stores perm collection so I had to pick this up in a LE collection. 
Total: 8/10
Dry Speed: 1 point- It dried okay but I misjudged this polish for dry after 5 mins and got an impression of something. I can't remember what I had touched. I just remember looking at my nails and noticing it.
Application: 2 point- No streaks, just pure unadulterated color.
Price: 2 points- The price is why I bought it, that and I didn't have it. :D
Wear: 2 points- Jelly polishes love to stick on my nails. Yay!
Opaque: 1 point-I'm torn at this part. This isn't a cream like I expected its actually a jelly. What does that mean? Well its sheer but ultra shiny. Its also great for layering or tinting other polishes. If you want to wear this alone just know that you will have to add a few layers. 

Until next time!

Day 75- Sinful Colors in Daredevil (57)

Daredevil is one of the newest shades that was added to the perm line. Its a bright pink with a blue sheen. Its's slightly visible in the picture of me holding the bottle. 
Total: 8/10
Dry Speed: 1 point- The top layer dried fairly fast, but it held the moisture in the bottom layers. You can kinda see an impression from were I touched my jeans.
Application: 2 points- This went on buttery smooth.
Price: 2 points- I picked this bad boy up during a .99 cent sale. AAA Ya that's the best part.
Wear: 1 point- This for the most part dried well but again the under coat held onto the moisture and my middle finger received the a beautiful impression of my jeans.
Opaque: 2 points- This is a two coat for full coverage, first coat was just a bit to sheer for my tastes.

Until next time!

Day 76- Sinful Colors Snow Me White (56)

Nothing like a good solid white to round out a good polish line.  This is part of the perm collection but is also added to some LE Collections as well.
Total 10/10
Dry Speed: 2 points-Dried really fast.
Application: 2 points- This is two coats. Its a bit on the thick side but I don't mind that because it dried fast for being thick.
Price: 2 points- In my area these are 1.99 and in the main line.
Wear: 2 points- This polish lasted the 24-48 hour test.
Opaque: 2 points- One coat is good, but I did two for safe measure.
Until next time...

Future of this blog!

So I thought I might give you guys an update. Some may care, some may not, but that's okay either way. I have posted before about getting a new job well that fell through a long time ago. I was still working on my AA at a local college but I knew that being 23, living at home, and in an area that has the worst unemployment rate in the state was NOT going to be good for me in the long run. So I decided I needed a major change, I wasn't sure what but I know what I dream about having and where I'm at now just seems like two different worlds. So I looked at the girl I see myself being and asked what I am missing. I realized a needed a back bone. I need to learn to be strong, independent, and above all how to say the word "NO". My kindness is usually taken for weakness and I hate that. So I did some calling around, and found out that the NAVY is looking for recruits. So I signed my contract on September 4, 2012. I am going into Aviation Electronics. What do plains and beauty have in common? ME! I scored high enough to get a job in the field that is most highly sought after, at first I was SO NOT HAPPY. I dread the idea of being sent over seas. I really just wanted a paperwork kind of job, but this will be okay. Now I am going into a field that will have some options when/if I do decide to go back to civilian life after I've served my four years.

So what does that mean for this blog? Well a few posts ago I mentioned that I had been continuing taking pictures even though I wasn't posting. So I'm going to be "posting" via scheduled posts(one thing I love about blogger, that I wish youtube had. Hint Hint GOOGLE) for the duration of my stay in Chicago(boot) once I have access to a computer then I will be posting again. Now with me being military it will mean that what I wear on a daily bases will change. I still want to post fun, crazy looks but know that they wont be military and specifically Navy approved looks. So I will also be posting Navy approved stuff as well. Which will help the blog to be a bit different than other beauty blogs, I feel. I'll wear my uniform if they are Navy approved and "civies" or civilian clothes if not. Terminology may change a little too. The Navy calls a lot of items by different names, ie bathroom= the head, floor=deck. I also wont always have a lot of make-up with me, but I'm hoping to have my car with me so things that wont be ruined by the Florida heat(my school is in Pensacola) I'll keep there.

I know that the Navy will help me become the person I want to be, if I survive boot camp. I'm excited and EXTREMELY nervous too. I just keep seeing myself in my Navy uniform and then I picture what I want for myself in later years. So far those too, plus the help from some good friends, I know that I CAN do this.

I leave March 4. Navy, Lets Do This! 

Day 77 - Sinful Colors Dream On (55)

Ah Sinful Colors, how I love thee. Sadly this is not one of the colors that is at the top of my favorites list. Dream On is a beautiful blue based purple and very NEON. Sadly it's a matte polish and not labeled as such. Also the formula for Sinful Colors matte polishes are a little funny in that they tend to be a bit spotty. This is from the permanent line.
Total :5 /10
Dry Speed: 2 points- The one redeeming quality of this polish is that it drys ridiculously fast.
Application: 0 points- This is one of the worst polishes when it comes to all over application. Its not the brush, its the formula.
Price: 2 points- In my area, I can get Sinful Colors for 1.99, and sometimes its .99. I tend to go a bit crazy on the .99 sales. Good thing I bought all of the colors I didn't have last time.
Wear: 0 points- I got a full day of this with out a top coat, with a top it only lasted an extra half day. Not going to lie kinda sad about that.
Opaque: 1 point- This is every bit as bright as in the bottle but I would need 3 coat (ring finger) to get complete coverage. A bit excessive for me.
Until next time...
