Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon Collection: Hot-Hot-Hot Pants and Meet Me at the Rink

All right, I figured that since it was my birthday month,
and I have my birthday haul,
I shall go about having fun with them for the rest of August.
Oh. And hopefully with a bit of nail art thrown in.
Well, later I mean.
For now, here's 2 of the Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon polishes:
Color Club Hot-Hot-Hot Pants,
3 coats + Seche Vite TC
Peachy pink bright crème.
Ok, this is hot hot hot!
I love the colour,
just not the formula.
I have to say though, it's not as bad as some other pastels I have.
But that 3rd coat is definitely needed to smoothen things out.
Color Club Meet Me at the Rink,
3 coats + Seche Vite TC.
Bright sky blue pastel crème.
Again the 3rd coat is to smoothen things out on the nails.
Otherwise, another pretty one to love.

My Birthday Month Haul

I've been putting myself on a low-buy for a while.
For the very simple reason that The Stash is getting a wee bit out of hand for me.
There's just too many that I haven't even gotten around to swatching or wearing.
But hey! Birthday month!
So I lifted the self-imposed restriction,
and went on a buying spree.
Though I must say,
it's still quite a restrained spree.
I know I'm capable of a lot more...
Rescue Beauty Lounge (RBL) Blogger 3.0 Collection:
MakeupWithdrawal, Manicurator, Morning Light and Refined and Polished.
RBL Je t’aime! Je t’aime! Collection:
Ah, Oui and Trois Oignons Rouges
Then I laid my hands on the OPI Color Paints.
My friendly sales person was the one who advised me to get the box set
when he realised I was getting the entire collection.
He was telling me that the box set would be at the same price as 3 polishes,
but I'll get an additional nail art tool that comes with the box set.
Here's the tool;
it a brush on one end and a dotting tool on the other.
It's nicely packed in its own little container too!
Which I thought would make it really handy for travelling!
The 3 in the box set:
Silver Canvas, Turquoise Aesthetic and Pen & Pink
The remaining OPI Color Paints:
Chromatic Orange, Indigo Motif, Landscape Artist, Primarily Yellow and Purple Perspective.
Late to the party,
but I finally got the whole Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon Collection:
Hot-Hot-Hot Pants, Feathered Hair Out to There, Diggin' the Dancing Queen,
Meet Me at the Rink, 'til the Record Stops, Under the Blacklight and Disco's not Dead.
Then my friend came back from Hong Kong with these nail stickers for me.
I love the heart and rocking horse one! Too cute!
Ok, this last batch of nail art stuff ain't bought.
It's sponsored by Born Pretty Store for another round of review,
but since the pack arrived just in time,
I consider it part of the birthday package.

Born Pretty Store Review: Pretty and Sweet

It's a Born Pretty Store Review for today.
I recently received another package from them,
and this was immediately the first item I picked up to do a quick manicure with.
I've been in a nail wraps phase recently.
Simply because I haven't really had the time nor inclination for more effortful nail art,
and nail wraps are just a wonderful way of having pretty nails without spending too much time and effort.
A closer picture of the actual set of nail wraps.
I like how these came with labels as to how wide they are,
this makes it easier to find the right ones for my nails.
And here they are,
taken on day 3 actually!
Still in pretty good condition right?
I have them paired with Color Club Hot-Hot-Hot Pants here,
another pretty polish.
I think the whole manicure looked really good,
pretty and sweet!

When Happens When You Clean Up The Nail Polish Closet

It was one of those half-hearted attempts to start organising the nail polish closet again.
Yeah, every few months it starts looking like a hurricane visited the closet,
but I always procrastinate on the organisation.
Mainly because it always gives me a headache as to how I've accumulated so much polish.
And usually those attempts at organisation will also bring out polishes
that I had forgotten I bought/owned.
Today's post features 2 polishes I had forgotten:
L.A. Girl Color Addict in Idol,
2 coats + Seche Vite TC.
Dusty denim blue with copper-gold shimmer.
L.A. Girl Color Addict in Disorder,
2 coats + Seche Vite TC.
Khaki grey with that same copper-gold shimmer.
Ok, even though I cannot remember how/when I bought these 2 polishes,
I'm quite glad I do have them and that I now remember them.
The copper-gold shimmer in these 2 polishes are really pretty,
and when paired with the lovely base colours,
it's just gorgeous.
And completely apt for the fall season that's almost upon us.
I don't think I have anything else that is similar in The Stash.
Well, I mean I can't REMEMBER anything else that could be similar.
If something gets "discovered", I'll let you guys know.
