Wow, what a difference a week makes in the weather! It was very cool here this past week. It was nice for sleeping but not so nice for other things! I had a long week at work so the cooler weather didn't affect me to much as I was only off 2 days. Was it cooler for you as well?
I am sorry about posting this so late but I was doing the constant refresh on Sephora trying to snag one of the epic rewards. I was so lucky to have been able to get my first choice of the Becca epic reward. I feel like I won the lottery! Even though I was lucky enough to have snagged one, I don't think it was handled very fairly at all and feel sorry for the other people who sat at their computers all day trying to get one. Need less to say I broke my no/low buy with this as I bought a Cinema Secrets brush cleanser....But I didn't buy any makeup!!
For this weeks NoTW I thought I would choose a brand that it would appear I haven't used by itself in a long time, China Glaze. Not sure why I haven't used this brand, I do own quite a few of them. I choose to use 'Dance Baby' from the 2012 Spring Electric Pop Collection. To me it is a medium pink with purple undertones, also a little dusky in color in the bottle. On the nails this looks like it has more purple than it does in person. I did my usual 2 coats with the same base and top coat as per usual.
Last weeks NoTW lasted fairly well which I was surprised again by the quality of NYC polish. There was the usual tip wear plus a little thinning of the polish. I never really gravitated to the brand until it was the brand of the month for the CBB back in March of this year and I did a NoTW with a polish from the brand and it to held up really well. I received a lot of compliments on my nails last week as well as a lot of people asking me how I did it. It was such an easy nail art that I can see myself trying it out again soon!
Have you tried any new nail art? Or a budget friendly brand that surprised you with the quality, especially for the price? I get NYC for 2 for $3 CAD at Walmart. We're any of you lucky in the Sephora Epic Rewards?
