NoTW For August 10, 2015

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!!

China Glaze 'Dance Baby' NoTW for August 10, 2015.

China Glaze 'Dance Baby' NoTW for August 10, 2015.

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.

NoTW from August 3, 2015.

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?
