Cherry Poppin'

My first post. Didn't think I was going to get sucked into the nail polish craze but after several weeks of denial I've come to terms with my new addiction -- just another to add to my long list of obsessions. *le sigh* C'est la vie.

What's a post without pictures, amirite?? Over the last several weeks I started randomly trying out polishes and took some pictures along the way. Taken with my camera phone. Don't hate. Here they are -- please excuse this polish newbie's amateur attempts at painting nails -- growth is good, yeah?!? Pitty points, anyone?

*Claire's - Mood Color Changing Polish in Peaceful/Confident*
Peaceful (darker blue) shown here. 
This is the one that started it all. Given to me by one of my GFs.
I'd wring her neck if I wasn't so happy she gave this to me.

*Wet n Wild -  Heavenly*
This one makes me shudder. Ewww -- I did a terrible job 
at applying this. Took this off probably within 15 minutes.

*Claire's - Mood Color Changing Polish in Happy/Earthy*
I dipped my nails in warm water just to get the effect. 
Pretty cool, I think. And then things just sort of took off from here...

*China Glaze - Pelican Gray, Cosmetic Arts - green/blueish, Cosmetic Arts - purpleish*
My first attempt at creating some type of nail art. It was alright I guess.
Took forever though. This was before I discovered all the secrets 
and tricks to having your nail polish dry faster. Sheesh!

 *China Glaze - Strawberry Fields*
Here's where I started getting a little better at painting my nails.
I also began to invest in a few more polishes. My stash 
has grown ever-so-somewhat-slowly since...

My attempt at a Hello Kitty design using Art Deco Polishes. 
love love LOVE Hello Kitty with a FIERCE passion.

*FingerPaints - Natural Talent*
What I'm currently wearing.  A little more appropriate 
for work, I think. This was 5 coats! I was a little hesitant
when I first saw the color but it turned out nicely. I dunno 
if I have the patience to wear it again anytime soon.

I am very tempted to go to my nearest beauty supply store tomorrow and pick up a buttload of new polishes. I recently made a 20+ polish purchase so I don't think my wallet is too happy with me right now. We shall see...
