China Glaze Rose Among Thorns (Neon)

     How is everyone's week so far? I can't wait until tomorrow at about 6:15, because then it's time to get ready for our YARD SALE and then DATE NIGHT with the hubby! Can you say FUN? lol ;)
     This post features an awesome neon jelly that I found at Sally's Beauty Supply a few months back ~ China Glaze Rose Among Thorns (Neon).
     The pictures below are two very effortless coats of Rose Among Thorns, and can I just say that China Glaze never ceases to amaze me with their great formula. China Glaze truly is my favorite mainstream polish brand. I love the selection of colors, the price, and the awesome formula.
     I didn't realize how BRIGHT Rose Among Thorns is until I went outside. Wowzer, it is definitely neon! I love it! :)
     Check out the pictures....

     Rose Among Thorns is opaque enough to cover, but sheer enough to look like rock candy! I can only begin to imagine the different "glitter sandwiches" one can make with this polish!

Sinful Colors Daredevil

     Wow! This might just be my favorite pink nail polish to date!! I mean it is just bright, fluorescent, bubblegum pink! Sinful Colors just keeps knocking out one great nail polish after another, and Daredevil is definitely one of them!
     I stumbled upon Daredevil back Sinful Colors was on sale at Walgreen's for 99 cents, and I am definitely glad I bought it! The formula on this polish was PERFECT. Two easy, effortless coats that applied like butter. Daredevil also has a fuchsia flash in the light that complements the pink so well. You just can't find a better deal than this!
     Check out the photos below...

     This is just THE perfect pink! I'm smitten with Daredevil. :)

China Glaze Tinsel Town

     When I saw promotional swatches of the China Glaze Let It Snow Holiday 2011 Collection, I bought up most of the colors...except Tinsel Town. It didn't really impress me in the bottle. It just looked like another silver glitter. And then sometime in January I saw swatches of Tinsel Town here and I immediately knew what I had missed out on.
     I then ordered Tinsel Town on, and now I've got swatches for you guys!

     Tinsel Town is an amazing, blue-toned charcoal glitter polish. This polish is PACKED with glitter! Shown in the pictures below is only 2 coats!

I used two coats of Tinsel Town, one coat of Gelous, and one coat of Seche Vite to make the surface as smooth as possible.

     Removal of this polish was no problemo with using the foil method, which I'll tell you all about soon! What do you think of Tinsel Town?

Candy Lacquer Dark Hearts

     I think I'm becoming obsessed with black and red glitter polishes. Every time I need a new combination, I feel like I have to have it! And Dark Hearts in no exception. Candy Lacquer released Dark Hearts a couple of weeks ago, and it was love at first sight. I'll let the pictures do the talking...

This is two coats of Dark Hearts over two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

I just love how those red hearts peek through the black!

     So, as you can see, Dark Hearts is a clear-ish base with shredded black glitter and red heart glitter. It did get a little goopy on me if I tried to move the hearts around on my nails because of all the black shreds, but the extra work is definitely worth it because this combination is phenomenal! OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls is a very, very light grey, and I love it as the background for Dark Hearts. I told you I can't get enough of black and red glitter polish! 
      What do you think of Dark Hearts? You can find Dark Hearts in Candy Lacquer's Etsy shop here when she restocks this polish.
