Color Club Reign In Spain from my BFF's Birchbox. It's pretty nice! Formula is fairly good for a pastel neon. Reminds me a lot of BL Trout Pout (but brighter?). I was outside a little while ago when there was just a little bit of natural light left and it looked like it was glowing... so cool.

Wet n Wild has a summer limited edition display of their Fergie line, and most of the nail polishes look like re-promotes, but there's one called Cabo Cruise that's new and it's gorgeous and I can't remember seeing another polish like it from any brand. It's an almost neon blue with hidden greenish teal shimmer. It's super pretty and everyone should buy it.

i did a full mani/pedi in BL all hail mcqueen for my trip to the grand canyon. i was pretty proud of myself for how well i color-coordinated with the scenery, ell oh ell.

meanwhile, i'm trying not to have a freakout over one of the new a england shades, what with the shipping debacles and all.

It looks like Llarowe still sells a england in the US. I've ordered from Llarowe multiple times and have only had good experiences.

I've noticed that too. Sunlight gives the best holo effect but if I put a clear coat of anything on top, it totally dies even in sunlight. Top coat and holo don't seem to work together.

Zoya is having a BOGO on past summer collections. I'm on a 'don't buy dumb shiitake' thing right now, but I thought i'd pass it along.

Is it just me or does polish kind of suck this year? I hit up the Zoya Earth Day sale, and i've gotten a few bottles of ORLY and that's it. It might be because I do have a pretty big collection and I haven't seen any super impressive glitters which are usually my kryptonite.

It has been a blah polish year.

Chanel summer polishes are amazing metallics, but all the rest were fairly unexciting. Pretty, but probably not colors I'll still be carefully hoarding 10 years from now. I never even bought the spring colors.

There seems to be more emphasis on nail art these days instead of super special polishes.

Textured polishes are the new thing, and I think most of them look awful.

It's just as well that nothing too exciting is coming out, there is no Ulta here and the Sally's is so small that they don't even put out collection displays.

yep, i haven't had much problem resisting lately, i think largely because i'm not into the texture thing. i *do* like one of the new a england shades (sleeping palace) but not so much that i need it Right This Minute or anything.

Yes! The very newest Chanel colors we have here are SO BORING! It might even be a new display of old boring colors shuffled around. The summer colors were cool though. I am wearing Azure right now, so pretty!

I've gotten two of the Zoya PixieDust colors, just because the online pics are so pretty, but I absolutely cannot wear them without top coat. The texture just squicks me out so much!

I was starting to think that I'd reached the peak of my polish collection, since nothing has really called to me lately. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that it's just lack of good colors! ;-)

Ha! My first world problem of the week is that I DON'T have gold glitter to put over my pink nails. Obviously joshua, I'm a little jealous.

No, they are new old boring colors and not at all enticing for Summer. I wasn't even tempted to buy one of them when I went to Lard & Taylor during the 15% off cosmetics sale for my sunscreen. If you know me, that's pretty remarkable. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come with Peter Philips gone: super high prices and nothing worth buying.

I hate that OPI sand or whatever finish. I'm nt sure why but the whole idea of texture on nails makes me cringe a bit.

I don't mind the textured polishes for neutrals, I have a nude and a grey from Zoya, and a black from Orly, and I like them, but I think that finish looks awful with colorful polishes.

Also the Nails Inc Leather Effect polishes are super cool. They're textured, but only once they dry, they paint on smooth. I dunno how it works, magic? Anyway when they dry the texture really does look like leather. I bought the black one and it's good stuff.

Overall though I've been less interested in polishes this year, I got two or three Orlys from the spring and summer collections, and I think just one from China Glaze's spring collection, two from the latest RBL release, and no Zoyas except the two textured guys. I did buy some of the crazy new Hard Candy glitters, but the polish world overall I've been unimpressed. Reading this paragraph it probably doesn't sound like that, but I've gone from buying ten or more polishes a month to one or two a month, if even that many.

But I also have over 800 polishes, so it takes a lot for something to not be a dupe to a polish I already own.

Yeah... I'm also at a point where I don't feel compelled to buy anything unless I feel like it's distinctly different from anything else in my collection. Also, my rack is getting full and I don't think I want to buy another one...

(Watch me quote myself in about 6 months when I've bought another rack)

This all being said - I ordered Sunbaker, Champers, Pitter Patter and Posh Bird from the BL 30% off event.

Maybe we should have a nail polish challenge? Like we pick a color each week and we have to use one we already have? It seems like an excellent time to go on a no buy challenge.
