NPB's Purple Rain

This may be my favorite one so far - a dusty jelly purple with lots of different sized hex plus black shredded glitter.  Application was great - this is two coats with one coat of Barielle Manicure Extender followed by one coat of Seche.

Essie Pretty Edgy and Action

I just entered my first nail art contest! I used a dotting tool and striping tape with a matte top coat over everything because I thought it would photograph better.

What do you think?

NPB's Cosmic Debris

Halfway there!!

This was so hard to photograph but thankfully pretty easy to apply.

Finger Paints Circus Peanuts

This is from a LE Spring Collection by Finger Paints - a brand that is exclusive to Sally Beauty Supply.   I have a few of their colors and found them to be well pigmented and easy to apply...not so much with this one.  It took two coats and was still a little streaky but luckily a coat of Seche smoothed it out.

NPB's Shrieking Mauve

This is my second polish for the shop!  I'll open once I've got six, so we're a third of the way there people!

Another super limited edition one (I think there will be 4 or 5 bottles for sale).

Petites Epic!

I believe this is a new color in the Petites line. Application was easy, dry time was good. This is two coats with one coat of Seche.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Heat Flash with LA Splash Sparkling Wave

This is from the latest LE collection.  I will admit, it did dry quickly, but it was a streaky mess and the formula was very thick and pasty.  This is with topcoat.

I wore this for a day and then had to cover it up, so I added a coat of LA Splash Sparkling Wave.  I'd never seen this brand before but my Bed Bath and Beyond had a huge new display so of course I had to pick one (or two) up to try.

Very gorgeous and sparkly, also very gritty.  This is with a generous coat of Seche, but it could use two more.
