Golden Oldie Thursday Two-fer! - Purple & Skittle

I'm really getting to be quite terrible at blogging. I swear I blogged more when I was juggling school on top of everything. Now I have no school...and no excuse to be neglecting my baby blog and my nails!! Ah well, maybe I just have a case of the winter blahs. Spring will be here soon...right?! I better keep this brief or I will miss yet another deadline! Ok, so first up is my purple mani for this week.

The base is Zoya Areetha, which was a purchase I almost instantly regretted when I realized that it was a chrome/frost polish. I can't stand seeing brushstrokes on my nails and this polish was terrible for that.. I bought it and then never used it...until this week. On top of that, I added China Glaze CG In The City. This is the first bottle of China Glaze that I ever purchased, and then NEVER tried. I did a random design with striping tape and tried to keep it simple so I could finish this post on time. :)

Here is Areetha by herself. Ugh I hate the streaks! It is such a shame because the color is gorgeous. I got a few compliments on it too. Those people didn't look at it up close, like I have been...

Haha, ok next we have my skittle. This is 4 untrieds/loaded into one mani! I started with COS BAR (an unnamed dark bronze. I did my nail art with Bath & Boddy works Copper, Townley Mochachino (these two colors are both over 10 years old!), and Sally Hansen Snappy Sprinkles. Snappy Sprinkles is another glitter I bought years ago and then didn't really know what to do with.

Here is COS BAR's Bronze all by itself. It's not bad. It's actually a pretty good fall/winter color.

Thanks for looking and make sure you look at what everyone else did!


Feel free to comment, or even ask questions here as well. I try to respond to everyone within a day or two, and would love to hear what you think about my blog in general, the nail art, or any suggestions you may have.
