Pink Wednesdays: Color Club Yum Gum

“It’s the most wonderful timeeeeeeee of the weeeeeeek…”

And, you might have noticed that it’s been a week since I’ve posted. There’s a reason for that.

As you have previously read, I went to Atlanta to visit my SFAM. And my camera battery died.

It’s still dead. This is a cell phone picture.

We had to drop $600 on truck repairs, so a $20 camera battery is not high on the list of priorities.

Anywho, I went dusty diving with my SFAM this past week. I noticed that this one salon had the new Color Clubs for $5. So I went ahead and bought two of them. Since it’s Pink Wednesday, you get to see Yum Gum.

Sorry for the blurriness

Like you’ve probably already heard, the new Color Club Wicked Sweet collection is scented.  And Yum Gum smells like… gum. LoL.

And it’s kind of giving me a headache.

This particular polish was unruly and thick–I had lots of cuticle drag, streaking and bald spots. I liked to have never got it to look decent. This is 3 coats with a coat of Seche Vite (in the hopes that it would level it).

Lastly, I apologize for the nubbin pointer fingernail. I was never going to show you guys the carnage from the big break I had recently. But, I just could not get the polish to look right without painting using my dominate hand. I tried twice.

NOTD: Revlon Not So Blueberry

I was wandering through Rite Aid this week looking for Revlon Perplex, in the hopes that someone had missed snapping up a bottle & I could finally get my grubby claws on it. Alas, no. It was not to be. What I did find was a display of Revlon scented nail polish. This one is #370- Not So Blueberry. And holy crap, once it dries, it smells like chemically enhanced blueberries. I am sitting here sniffing my nails as we speak.

Anyhow, this is a bluish purple foil-like polish (let me reiterate, it smells like blueberries!!). It looks like a duochrome in certain lights, but I’m not 100% sure. It goes on really smoothly in two coats. I quite like it, but it seems to be screaming for some nail art.

P.S. Don’t tell the hubs, but I’m supposed to be on a no-buy. He told me a month, but I’m going to assume he means just until the beginning of February. I have a Zoya nail polish order ready and waiting to go out.  😉
