I'm back!!

Holy moly it's  been a bajillion years!!!!!! I hate having gone this long without posting, but my life has been crazy these past few weeks!! I packed up my whole apartment and drove halfway across the country, only to unload everything into a storage unit. All of my polishes (except for a few) are in storage (which was BY FAR, my heaviest box!!!!). I spent the weekend in California at a friend's place, and then flew back here, to IL to train my replacement. I've been living out of a hotel for the past week, and will be in one until Friday! Then I fly back to Cali and have to unload everything from the storage unit into a truck, and then FINALLY move into my new place on Saturday! WHEW! I can't wait for all this moving crap to be OVER! I purchased quite a few nail polish racks, so when I finally have my "Wall of Polish" set up, I'll be sure to share it with you guys! It's like artwork to me!
Yesterday, I spent the day in the city with Karin visiting some supply shops. I am so glad the polish community brought us together. I am really going to miss her!!! She gave me a special surprise polish that was a late birthday present / good luck living in your new place present. I can't wait to share it with you.... it's amazing!!!! :) But anyway, I picked up a few polishes yesterday so I will have lots of goodies to share with you this week!! 

Today I have two polishes I picked up from the Orly Mineral FX collection. Overall I liked the collection, but only two of the colors really spoke to me. I got these at Sally Beauty... it seems like they are in pretty limited quantities, so if you like any of them, I suggest going out and getting them ASAP!

First up is Rock Solid. It's a shimmery, steel gray color with scattered holographic glitter throughout. Two coats achieved full opaqueness, and the formula applied really well for me. I really enjoy this color!








Second, is a color called Rococo A-Go-Go. It's a gorgeous shimmery dark plum color, with a gold-ish duo chrome and pink sparkles. It applied like a dream, and could be a one coater. I did two for good measure. It's SO pretty. I will be wearing this color a TON, I can tell. 










Thanks for stopping by, and I won't be gone for that long again!! :)
