Finally going to go see hunger games, That deserves a polish change!

Hey!!

So finally I’m going to go see hunger games tonight and in honor of this i got a china glaze hunger games polish that i wanted and did a polish change completely around this beautiful polish!

Yesterday i went shopping with Megan and then we had lunch since our Wednesday lunch plans fell through. We went to Sally’s (2 locations) and ULTA (2 locations) lol cause going to one location is just so lame! i was mainly looking for wax because starting this month I’m giving up shaving for waxing. my skin is really rejecting the razors doesn’t matter how “amazing” said razor is known to be my legs break out. so I’m going to give waxing a go! lets see!! if that doesn’t work i may have to invest in laser hair removal because red swollen bumpy skin is so disgusting especially on the legs and summer is right around the corner and this summer, i plan to live on the beach (not literally of course!).

So aside from the waxing supplies i bought i also bought Matte about you, which I had been wanting for 2 weeks and after tons of debate i finally got the luxe and lush polish from the capitol colors collection. This is a collection that i don’t really love. i don’t know if maybe the colors came out in the wrong season or they r just kind of dull but we are in spring and there’s no way I’m getting 12 dark fall like colors mid March! no way! so i gave into the luxe and lush and decided i would layer it with colors i already own.

anyways, once i got home i was itching to try both my new polishes so i came up with this little combination where i got two use both. OH YEAH! ❤

What i used:

Seche Vite: base coat

Sally Hanson: Midnight in NY

China glaze: luxe and lush  (capitol colors collection)

Essie: Matte about you

  5. I’ve never seen Essie’s Matte About You here in Canada, but I’ve seen other brands of matte top coats (Orly’s, but that was @ Winner’s, which is kind of like TJ Maxx, I think.. so it’s mostly random overstock that gets sold, and not the same products). I love the effect it gives, but I also love my glossy nails too! 🙂 Enjoy the movie! I really want to see it!

      i actually had a hard time picking a matte top coat that i’d be comfortable in using and OPI’s matte top coat runs for almost $20 which is such a rip off! Essie’s Matte about you is only $10 and i know essie is a brand i can count on.
      Sometimes OPI just makes me upset with all their price markups

    Oh man, the same thing happened to my legs last week and I only clued in yesterday that it was my new *amazing* razor. Sigh. Itchy bumpy legs are indeed, not sexy lol.

    I’ve been looking for a good matte top coat too! Might give this a try. 🙂

    I love the luxe and lush with the matte top coat! I need to get my hand on matte about you, and I’m also looking for essies shine of the times because I thiiink I like it a bit more than luxe and lush, though both are pretty amazing! I have sensitive leg skin too and I read a post recently where the woman talked about her solution: http://thepioneerwoman.com/homeandgarden/2012/02/cure-for-itchy-legs/
    I haven’t tried it yet but it sounds like it would help matters, and definitely more convenient than waxing (ouch!) 🙂 Eve
