Polish Party!

Heey y'all! Although Tropical Storm Lee has put a damper on Labor Day weekend, he couldn't stop the indoor festivities! So yesterday, when the rain and wind was pretty bad, some of my family resorted to my house. My mom cooked some delicious 'rainy weather food'-Crawfish Corn Soup for lunch, and Red Bean Soup for dinner. I'm sure many of you have never heard of either of these, but I promise you they are yummy! We had lots of left overs to take us into today, which happens to still be crappy weather. 

Let me get to the point of the story.  While my family was over yesterday I got to paint their nails! I painted my cousin Chelsea's nails with the DS Coronation color I swatched yesterday, however I didn't get pictures of them.  Then, I painted my cousin Sophia's nails with an LSU Tiger theme. GO TIGERS! It didn't come out just like I would have liked it to, but it was alright. And lastly I painted my nanny's nails with DS Reserve. Oh, and I painted my mom's nails with Shootout at the O.K. Coral but she refuses to let me take pictures of her nails.

For Sophia's nails I used a purple by Forever 21 (they don't name their polishes specifically).  On her accent nail I used a base of OPI's Need Sunglasses? and for the stripes I used OPI's Funky Dunkey and came back on top of that with the purple by Forever 21.

On to my nanny's nails! OPI's DS Reserve is a stunning pink filled with lots of shimmer and a little bit of holo.

I almost forgot about my nails! I painted them with OPI's Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees the day before yesterday. By time I photographed them yesterday, I had some tip wear due to removing polish from other peoples nails and what not. It's a gorgeous charcoal that builds up with two coats. I know some people see blue in it or something? I don't see it so much. Maybe it's just that I wasn't in the natural light. But I love this much more than a regular black, because that leaves staining and is normally messy to work with!

AANDD! I was going to take a picture of outside for y'all, to show you the weather we were having, and when I opened the Forever21 package was laying on the porch! I was beyong excited! The estimated delivery date wasn't until September 6th! And I couldn't believe they'd deliver during a Tropical Storm! Haha.

Can y'all see the rain in this one? I never realized how hard it is to capture rain in a picture! And of course there's no way to capture the wind. Hehe. So just imagine wind + rain.
BBUUTT! Here's the exciting part about the package! It contained 3 new polishes! Straight up glitter bombs! Online they have better names, but on the label of the polish it just says like, Purple, Turquoise, Red.

The actual names are Sparkling Red, Shimmering Purple, and Shimmering Turquoise.
They are even more amazing in person! Really. Breathtaking. So I couldn't just look at them! I put on Shimmering Purple over my Suzi Skis on my accent nail. Just look at the glitter in the bottle! Everyone should get a bottle of this!

Sorry for the long, pic heavy post! I hope you like everything I showed you! Let me know what you think--especially about those Forever 21 polishes!


  1. LOVE the LSU mani! I love love love football season!

  2. Cute nails! Butttttt, being a die hard Arkansas fan, it's hard to look at the purple & gold ;)
    Yay for the F21 polishes! NEED to get some of those! :)

  3. Love the LSU manicure! Looks like you had fun!

  4. Those are cute manicures, especially the LSU one! Forever 21 polishes are definitely interesting, I just wish the names didn't suck!

  5. @Olivia-Thanks! Haha, i'd feel the same way! And yes! Get some!

    @imfeelingnail-venturous-Thank you! We did have fun!

    @Emily-Thank ya! I find them really interesting too and I agree about the names sucking! It's confusing when I swatch them and what not. And online they have different polishes with similar names or different names to similar polishes. Ahh!

  6. Aah, those glittery polishes are to die for!

  7. They really are! I want to order the other colors! They have it in black, green, copper. They're gorgeous!
