Bright and cheery skittle!

Yesterday I went on a wild hunt for a beauty supply store that had been suggested to me by another Facebook group member. First I found a DIFFERENT nail supply, and checked it out… the selection there was not great, but I did find an OPI Ink and snagged that. At the checkout, the man told me that from now on, there was a $200 minimum purchase! First of all, yeah right! I saw how much dust was on those bottles, he'd take whatever business I'd give him! Second of all, it didn't matter because I don't plan on going back there.

Then after some mad searching and a Q+A with a Walgreens clerk, I found Hollywood Beauty Supply! Not the cleanest and most organized place ever, but you don't have to have a license to get in, and it's SO. CHEAP. China Glazes are $3, OPIs and Crackles are $4. So I went a little nuts! Here's what I bought, including the OPI from the first supply shop.
  • OPI Ink
  • OPI Crown Me Already
  • China Glaze Metallic Crackle Latticed Lilac
  • China Glaze Mrs. Claus
  • China Glaze Sugar Plums
  • China Glaze High Hopes
  • China Glaze Peachy Keen
  • China Glaze Sky High-Top
  • China Glaze CG In the City

I promise I'm getting to the mani here, I really am!

Since I was so excited about my new polishes, I wanted to do a bright skittle that included three of my new colors! So here it is! I added in Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow and China Glaze For Audrey to round out the bright set.

China Glaze - High Hopes
China Glaze - Peachy Keen
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Mellow Yellow
China Glaze - For Audrey
China Glaze - Sky High-Top
