China Glaze Something Sweet and mini polish haul

Hey Beauty Mamas, just a quick post about some nail polishes I bought recently, including China Glaze Something Sweet and some pics of the Rush topcoat I reviewed here.

I got China Glaze Something Sweet because I was looking for a nice springlike baby pink. This one has an almost lilac undertone to it.

Here is a swatch with Rush topcoat.

Something Sweet applies well, but is a little streaky. This is 3 coats.

As you can see, the topcoat is somewhat shiny. Not blazingly brilliant like a diamond, but not too bad. I am still unsatisfied with it's longwearing performance. It continues to chip after the second or third day. I am thinking about trying Poshe next. Also, that is Nicole by OPI - Love Your Life on my index and pinky fingers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this polish for layering. The glitter and hearts are soooo cute! The formula is pretty thick and it's hard to get the hearts on the brush, so I followed some fellow bloggers' advice and dipped out the hearts with an orangewood stick and placed them in the wet glitter polish.

Also, I was at Ross the other day killing time and I saw a cute little set of 7 Color Club nail polishes. I have never tried Color Club before, but heard good things about it on Scrangie's blog. Not to mention it was only $7.99! Price tends to be a factor for me when buying beauty products, it's easier to justify spending money on myself (and not my kids) if it's good value.

These polishes don't have names so I'm not sure what they are! From what I can gather, they do these sets in Ross quite frequently. Maybe with overstocked polishes? Anyway, I'm far from a pro nail polish blogger so it doesn't bother me much! The colours are really nice, the pinks and red are cremes and the purple and blue colours have a pretty shimmer. I will be using these a lot! I will have to check back and see if I can find any more at Ross... For the price of one Essie polish I got 7 Color Club polishes! The quality seems about the same too. Can you say money saver?

That's all from me today, I will post some more about the Color Club polishes soon!
