First, here's some shiny things I've gotten recently. From the Coterie offer, I got Knackered, Bluey, and All Hail the Queen. They were almost all different from what I thought I was getting, but I am IN LOVE with All Hail the Queen. I'd never have thought that a brown polish with holographic microshimmer sounded appealing in the slightest, but I will honestly probably repurchase it at full price when I run out of this bottle.
From Walgreens, I got 2 Sinful Colors, in Zincing of You, and a backup of Super Nova, as well as 3 Sally Hansen polishes on clearance. The Salon Manicure colors are in Petrol and Olive Branch, and were $1.98 each. The Insta-Dri is in Quick Canary, and was $1.49. I've actually been stalking these in the clearance bin there, since they were originally $4 each, which I think is a ridiculous price to call "clearance."
These polka dots were done to coordinate with a floral skirt (slightly visible in the background of the picture) with flowers and leaves in those colors, on a white background. I was slightly amused by how I have a wide enough selection of polishes that I just happened to have one to very closely match every color in the skirt.
White: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind WhiteRed: Borghese Che Bella Red
Orange: Wet n Wild Sunny Side Up
Green: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Green With EnvyBlue: Color Club, from Ross, no name on the package
Brown: Sinful Colors Nirvana
I really liked this one, although I managed to mess it up after less than a day, but I liked the effect of the greenish duochrome glitter over the red-orange shimmer.
Red: Revlon Saucy
Glitter: Jesse's Girl Fire Fly
This one was also done to match a dress I wore. It matched the light purple base, with a white crochet detail around the collar and sleeves. I adapted a cloud manicure design to look like lace, inspired by a picture I saw on Reddit. I like this design, although I think I have to work on my uniform-sized dotting technique....
