RBL Diddy Mow

Rescue Beauty Lounge knows how to create cult following. Surf Collection was sold out during 24 hours twice. First time I couldn't decide quickly enough so I was happy when I got second chance and I didn't loose minute. I loved 360 but not badly. Diddy Mow was one I knew I can't live without. Waiting was long but I got it finally. I kept it till big moment (my birthday party). It was wrong decision because pictures are not great (between my cooking and guests coming). But believe me it's worse every penny. Sometimes I don't have time to put polish when I host party myself. Or sometimes I can't wait patiently and ruin my manicure right before guests step up in my door. Diddy Mow dried without any time. I waited 1 minute, we took fast pictures and I was able to do something again. Fast pictures are not great pictures although. LOL But I can't wait to show you my new love. So here it is!

Other picture is not sharp enough but shows this unique color more accurate.

This color is really unique and I have a lot of khaki, olive, grey or green pieces in my closet but nothing match precisely. I went to shop for new bag and was looking for something blue what matches jeans. And today I found bag which attract my eyes because it's really match Diddy Mow. I still have polish on my nails but it's ready to be changed after heavy duty party jobs. But believe me one more time this bag is perfect match for my polish.

Barielle Belly Dance

I ordered only two polishes from summer 2010 High Steppin' Collection. First one is Belly Dance which I will show you today and other one is Electric Boogie. I plan to wear second one in couple days. I need to say that both is really much haves and I really like to have them in my collection. Take at look at Belly Dance.

This is mushroomy color what was in fashion during last years but it's not dupe of any other polish I own or saw. Color reminds me cacao with a lot of milk but also has purple/mauve touch. Most special part is tiny silver shimmer which is visible in bright light. This shimmer is really nice thing to do color unique and not boring. Polish is well pigmented and applies easily. It's little bit on thick side and you may want to add couple drops of polish thinner. I put two coats with base and top from Seche Vite as usual.

Chanel Collection for Fall 2010 Preview

We just survived spring and summer collections but brands want us to drool again showing Fall previews. All I know Chanel Fall Collection will be available at middle of August.
Promo photos show us two polishes and one of them is old one. #493 Jade Rose reminds me something. LOL But purple one #509 Paradoxe looks like lemming.

I also really love eyes palette Les 4 Ombres Enigma.

Mac Blue India

This is my NOTD. I love it so much. Dusty grayish blue is my cup of tea. It's perfect color to wear with jeans and jeans skirt (what I'm wearing now). I thought to layer Illusion d'Or over but I'm not ready yet. I love it as is. 2 coats with SV base and top coats. No problem with application.

Mac Seriously Hip and comparison

I need to change my minds about Mac polishes. I didn't like formula before. All 3 I bought last time are so easy to work with. Seriously Hip was my lemming for few months. I didn't hope to get it but now I can enjoy this polish so much. I didn't buy Chanel Or de Russie when I kept it in my hands in Chanel store because it was even more expensive than usual ($30) and so I tried to find replacement since then. Finally Seriously Hip satisfied me on 100%. Topic closed. LOL

Black base with gold shimmer looks very rich and interesting. You can see some multicolored particles which just add attractiveness. 2 coats with base and top coats are all it needs to show all glory. Add bright sun for full picture.

Seriously Hip is not only one black with gold shimmer in my collection so I checked what else I already have. China Glaze Wagon Trail is very close and Color Club with Abandon is not so.

CC with Abandon has more copper color of shimmer. I though CG Wagon Trail is bit more olive-green but it doesn't show it on nails.

CC With Abandon is most sheer and required 3 coats. CG Wagon Trail is 2 coats as well as Mac Seriously Hip. Wagon Trail has the same type of multicolored sparkles and I'm sure I would never tell "who is who" if I didn't know that.

Finally I want to share picture of my rhododendron in full bloom which I took while I was waiting my DH to help me with nail pictures.

Enjoy beautiful spring time in Northern Hemisphere!

Mac Baby Goth Girl & Lippmann Superstar

Mac Baby Goth Girl is even prettier in real life than in bottle. It shows purple shimmer and larger bronzier particles very well in direct sunlight. It doesn't look plain in the shade too. Love it.

Application was very nice. I used 2 coats with SV base and top coats and could live with this polish happily few days. But......
Postman brought package with Lippman Superstar in it. Thank you Dani! So I couldn't resist to apply one more coat of Superstar over Baby Goth Girl.

And .....I love it too. Very nice cooper-toned glitter is absolutely unique. I will try it alone later but now I enjoy it layered. No top coat on this picture. I think it will look even better with SV although.

New Nubar Collections are available!

The Night Sky Collection was inspired by the shifting colors of the evening sky. Each of the three shades dries to a shimmering matte finish and can be worn either alone or topped with Diamont Seal & Shine Quick Dry Top Coat for a Dazzling Shine.

Sunset - is the rich golden shade of a perfect sunset, Twilight - is a subtle light grey seen just before nightfall, and Midnight is the deep charcoal of a clear moonlit night.

Nubar celebrates ten years of creating safe and innovative nail lacquers free of DBP (phthalate), formaldehyde, and toluene with Nubar 2010. This fantastic shade consists of flakes of reflective glitter in a polychromatic base, and displays its many shades when worn alone as a sheer polish or layered over other nubar nail lacquers for a dramatic effect. The limit to nubar 2010's possibilities is your imagination!

I also got this info today - Nubar offers 20% off retail orders of $30 or more with code MOM20 through May 6th, with free shipping on orders of $75 or more after discount is applied. The Night Sky Collection and 10th anniversary clor, Nubar 2010 are available today, so visit us at www.bynubar.com to take advantage of this offer.

I'm going to order because I feel I will like those. And 2010 is just gorgeus (looks like good replacement of Hidden Treasure which I still can't find).
