Polish Swatches and Apple Juice

Yep, I know, I haven't posted in a few days. That's because I've been sick since Monday, and I might possibly have the flu. At least I got my flu shot in September so my flu isn't all that bad, but it's still a pain in the butt.

Fiona and I ended up going to Rite Aid yesterday after we got out of our Biological Science II class (that I dragged myself to despite the fact I should have remained in bed). Fiona wanted nail polish and I wanted to get apple juice to drink to help get rid of whatever the hell I have. Whenever I get sick, I always want to drink only apple juice and hot tea. Since I didn't have apple juice, I had to go buy some instead of continuing to steal some from the dining hall (did I say steal, I meant.. no I guess that's what I meant. There's no other way to put it really). I have to say I was quite pitiful in the drugstore since I was standing there at the checkout counter in my hiking boots, dark blue sweatpants, and my dark blue wool coat HUGGING a large bottle of apple juice to me as if it was a baby. Yep, pretty pitiful, but hey, I felt like crap and that bottle of apple juice was the best thing in the world to me at that moment; I finally had apple juice! I ended buying nail polish also since I found the hidden stash of Wet n Wild nail polishes that were only $.99. At that price of course I had to get a few, they're freaking $.99!

So today I have a few swatches to show that I've done over the last few days since I felt the need to keep painting my nails despite the fact at times I feel like I can't even lift my arms (yep, another sign I might have the flu, fatigue!).

Here's Wet n Wild Fast Dry Sage in the City. 3 coats to get to this point. It's a good green, but the base coat I used under it made the polish go on funky. If I hadn't put base coat on it would have been fine.

This is Sally Hansen Xtreme Hard as Nails Flirt. It's a pretty deep purple wine color. Its got subtle red shimmer in the polish. This was 2 coats.

I thought this was a cute little bottle of nude polish. This is Wet n Wild Megalast Sugar Coat. It had the cutest little brush that spread over the whole nail. The catch over this nice looking shade? It was 7-8 freaking coats! I lost count after I had to put a seventh coat on, it wouldn't go opaque! And it was streaky! It might look nice, but not for that many coats!

This is one of the ones I got yesterday. It's Wet n Wild Wild Shine Eggplant Frost. It's such a pretty purple. It's almost more of a creme with a bit of blue shimmer. It took only three coats to get it to my desired opaqueness. Very lovely shade, the pic almost does it justice.

I then turned Eggplant Frost into a funky French by adding Sally Hansen Celeb City tips. It's a very cool color combo.

So that's it for today. Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go drink some of that apple juice that I bought.
