Hey guys! Sorry for such a late post. I ran errands all day with my mom and aunt and then watched the Olympics until they ended at 11. But I really wanted to show y'all what I got at Sally's a couple days ago. Actually, I only ended up getting ONE polish that I wanted when I went in. I had several others I was looking for but had no luck finding. It's really my fault because I shouldn't have waited so long after the Summer Neons and On Safari collections came out. However, I'm still going to check at a couple other Sally's. I ended up with four polishes, some sponges, and a set of nail art brushes.
I picked up this set of brushes because I really want to start practicing and getting better at designs and things. And I can't really do that without a starter set of brushes.
Next, I picked up a two pack of sponges because I know that 'sponging' is all the rage lately! I've BEEN wanting to try it out but didn't know what kind of sponge to use. Well...unfortunately these aren't the ones! They were way too hard and I found they had too much texture on them. They were just picking up my first layer of polish and not leaving any of the new color.
The first polish I picked up was I'm With the Lifeguard from the 2012 Summer Neons Collection. It was the last one there so I snagged it as soon as I spotted it! It's a gorgeous pearlescent neon green! I've never seen anything like it!
Next my mom spotted a color called Fairy Dust. I don't know HOW I haven't seen this before, but it made me realize I need to search harder when I'm hoovering over the China Glaze display next time! It is simply a holographic glitter polish. There is no base color to it, so it's more like a top coat. LOVE it!

After that I picked up Flying Dragon (Neon) which is a color I've posted about on here before. I got it on my toes one time at the nail salon and really liked it. It's a neon magenta color with tiny blue and pink glitter.
And lastly I picked up a standout pink-red neon called A Rose Among Thorns. I'm really excited to try this one over white!
Thanks for sticking around guys! I'll be posting again tomorrow. Well, technically it would be later today. Ahhh...I need to get to bed!
Any sponge suggestions? Which ones work best for sponging. Have you tried any of these China Glaze colors? Let me know!
