I DID NOT BREAK MY NO-BUY!

Before the No-Buy police show up, I didn't buy these new nail polishes from the Electro Candy collection by Color Club that I have been wanting. They just kind of fell from the sky! lol Really, I got these for a shipping trade I did with my Pixie friend ;) If you don't have a pixie friend - you are really missing out - lol :)


Anyway, I picked three of the colors I was most excited about, with the orange one being top on my list. I was so excited I took off my Raspberry Festival and painted my nails right here at my desk! While these colors weren't as bright as I thought they would be, they all have a neon quality to them. I think the brightness is toned down due to the strong gold/whitish shimmer that is throughout all of these colors, or at least the three that I have anyway.


Tangerine Scream is what I used on my nails. With the cool gold like shimmer, this color at certain angles and lights looks peach to me and at other times, it is a distinct neon orange. Very cool color indeed! This did require 3 coats to remove all traces of a VNL. Like all of my Color Club polishes, I had no application issues.

Of course, I had to use my other colors too, so I painted them on my toes! I get no extra points for flawless application :)

OMG! I really like these.
I think I saw these in a local beauty store near by... they're like $6, huh?

RAI - Not if you order them online they don't cost $6.00, from Head to Toe they are like $2.50 ea!
