OPI Crown Me Already!

I just couldn't resist trying this polish as soon as I got home and I am not disappointed! This polish has a clear base with just about every size glitter you can think of:

No Flash,  just natural light

Bling Blowwwwwwww! LOVE IT! I used 3 coats of Crown Me Already and 2 coats of Seche Vite so that I could get a smooth finish. It was just to good to be true right? Right! I painted my nails yesterday around 4pm and today by 3pm it chipped :( . A plus is that this nail polish dries very fast, and I do mean completely dry in less than 5 minutes after 3 coats. I used Seche for the sole purpose of getting a smooth finish because this polish has a ruff finish to it. I wash my hands A LOT so that might have had something to do with it but I doubt it. The good thing about this polish is that it doesn't need nail polish remover! When it chipped I just put another fingernail under the chip area and went around the edges and it comes off like an acrylic nail but without the damage. Would I use this polish again, absolutely! I would definitely wear this on a night out, but I would paint my nails no more than 3 hours before leaving the house and not the day before or earlier that day.

What I stubled upon in ULTA

Yesterday I made a long overdue trip to ULTA and they didn't have a few things that I wanted but they had a few things that I really did! Right now I am trying to get a few Halloween collections together so that I can compare who did the best this year. China Glaze, Orly, and Fantasy Makers all had parts of their collections that were sold out :(  (I already have the OPI collection), but I made up for it :)  :

Left to Right: Fantasy Makers by Wet n Wild - Creepy Pumpkin, Purple Potion, and Night Glow (missing Black Magic). OPI Miss Universe Collection - Swimsuit...Nailed It!, Crown Me Already!. China Glaze - Its Alive (I actually didn't want the rest of this Halloween collection).

What made up for Orly being out of their Halloween collection and one of the Fantasy Makers was the OPI polishes! They are the only two that I bought from the Miss Universe collection, but they are the only ones I actually wanted, so that made me VERY happy!
