The Nail Files: Sinful Colors & Julep + China Glaze Clearance Haul

 photo newbutton_zps284b4cd7.jpg

I normally share manicures on Mondays, but this week I've decided to join my friend Kimberly on the weekly link up that she regularly joins in with, called The Nail Files, over at Jennie Shaw's.

Here's what I have to share.  I have been searching and searching for this Sinful Colors BloomBlast in Flower Power.  It's such a pretty milky pink shade with pink and white hex glitters along with some micro glitters.  It so pretty and jellish.  I love how the glitters look suspended in the layers of polish.  {{Swoon}}

I finally found it on Friday night - last night, so naturally I had to put it on immediately!  Here is Flower Power on two nails and because I thought it might be a bit too busy on a full hand,

The rest of my nails are done in Julep's Ariana. I don't know what I was thinking, well actually I do.  I was hoping it would match the brighter of the hex glitters.  I think the contrast between the two colors is a bit much for me, but now I know could totally wear a full mani of Flower Power.  It's actually a very pretty and "subdued" look in person.  Now I regret not getting the BloomBlast in Petal Be the Day.

I'm also on the hunt for China Glaze's Electric Nights, check them out in JessFace90's video.  I'm primarily looking for the glitter toppers as we already have a previous neon collection from them.  They are cleared out at both Sally's near us, BUT...we did run into some clearance polishes there this morning.

These beauties were all just $1.50 and buy 1, get 1 free!  Yep, that mean $0.75 each!!!  My daughter and I had to seriously restrain ourselves.  I let her pick out one, plus two more to give away as part of Easter gifts.

Seriously...less than $5 for all of them!  I don't usually run into these kinds of deals, I'm normally the one watching other people's finds on YouTube and being bummed I never hit them.  So we were pretty excited!

We bought two of these, one for a friend and one to keep.  This pink may seem run of the mill, but the shimmer makes it a stunner!   These swatches are what clinched the deal for me!

I love how this one looks like old school glitter, the kind you literally used to use back in your elementary days.  See what I mean, here, scroll to the bottom.  I also loved the multi-colors, of course!  I wish I could've found more from this older holiday line on clearance too!

Silver, gold, pink, blue, and green, oh my!  Yes there's quite a lot going on in Full Spectrum. I see it as mostly pink with some purple, and silver.  It really shifts a lot depending on how the light hits it, and is supposed to be a duochrome glitter.  See it here.

I Love Your Guts is from the last Halloween collection, and the one my daughter picked out and that I tried to talk her out of.  Besides the name, which is creepy, it looks like it's going to be a matte texture polish.  Both of which she doesn't like, but she begged for it and for just $0.75 I decided it wasn't worth the battle.  I think we'll probably be wearing it with top coat as shown on Peachy Polish.

I was surprised to see Road Trip colors already on clearance, this one is also for an Easter surprise.  Maybe this particular location got a lot of this one in, because there were several left.  See swatches here.

When we got home, my husband just didn't get the fuss about ultra cheap polish!  I'm so glad there are other nail polish fanatics I can share the excitement with online!
