There are two different Sinful Shine Al Fresco bottles here; one leans decidedly more purple than the other, although they bear the same shade number 1219…

Purple palace: PFF pile driving, or ye olde one-two

Although I have all eight purple palace PFF piles in an organized lineup, photographing them is another matter.

The weather is not on the side of palace construction workers this Sunday, so we will knock off early with the following. 🙂

SSGG is actually a crossover; she likely belongs in the second PFF pile, below.

All eight of these purple palace PFF pile driving comparisons will only be performed with previously unshown building materials; surely more potential PFFs can be found here or here!

Rita is also greener than she appears here.

The aforementioned, with Orly Teal Unreal tacked onto the end.  Orly is indeed greener in real life, as well.

Not Sally Girl Chillax – she does lean blue.  Must be chiquita pero picosa — tiny, but influencing the big ‘uns nearby

Jungle Fever holds a special place in my heart due to unusual immense self-control in restraining myself from buying her on repeated trips to an Asian grocery store.  She was less than $1 USD, but in those lean days of 2012, I had very little money for extras.  Thus, I always consider her fondly.  🙂

Not sure about Last Chance (this and SC Envy live in the varnish warehouse untried), but Hugo Moss seems to be a great economical alternative to NARS Zulu.

P.S.  I gave both Zulu and Galion away untried.

P.P.S.  Nail wheels are in short supply at the shops these days!

Finishing up the cool wintermint series…

…and plunging ahead into sea green and turquoise waters, all in one go!

Actually, I had to move all of these lineups, including take one, farther away than usual (over to the “green shelf”) due to nocturnal asphyxiation on my own vice-ridden air. Seriously, varnish fumes are overwhelming my bedroom at night. Maybe these bottles come alive and party on the rooftop of the Alex condo and less luxe tenements while I’m trying to sleep…

Swatches coming later; I’m out of nail wheels and want to have every single variation of green catalogued thus before the end of March!

It was late by the time I accommodated my new nine-drawer Alex unit.  Parked right next door are two wide three-drawer plastic consoles replete with more bottles of varnish.  Word on the street is that my Alex will require a twin.  At least I was able to do a thorough recon and ogle what I’ve amassed in the past four years.  There were some real beauties that got rediscovered and relocated!

1 – Rimmel 60 Seconds Rita Ora Breakfast in Bed

2 – Essence Colour & Go 146 That’s What I Mint!

The above four all have shimmer, with Liberdade’s being the most visible.

10 – Maybelline Color Show Mint Mist

11 – Misa Little Hands

 

12 – Sally Hansen Miracle Gel B Girl

13 – China Glaze Kinetic Candy (great formula)

 

2x each.  My numbering program is archaic, so it was easier to make the one I had inadvertently skipped a decimal than to do everything over again. 🙂

Happy minty fresh new year!

Endless Summer: homenaje en gris a la fauna marina del litoral mexicano

pezvela-logo

Inspired to organization of my expansive collection of greys by one of my Spanish paperback compendiums listing, among many other proud facts, the flora and fauna indigenous to the Mexican republic. Actually, I had set up this color lineup the night prior, and by chance picked up my mini enciclopedia en rústica this lazy Sunday morning, savoring its content and fishing for a way to tie it into my other passion, nail varnish. This is the result of my imagination’s wanderings. 🙂

Mini OPI NYC Ballet Sheers My Pointe Exactly, salvaged several times with thinner, since it keeps drying out on me!

Mini Icing by Claire’s, part of an unnamed quad set of sparkly cloudy blue-gray variations.  Should have been placed with this group.

Risqué Silver Shine, gifted to me by S. in Sao Paulo after I had already purchased Bonita Dying to Party.  Dying to Party is from a Hallowe’en collection that was made available in early summer!  I had set it aside and meant to feature it for Hallowe’en, but I never got round to that project.  These two are likely PFFs; we will find out together when I swatch all greys in a subsequent post.  Beautiful shimmer in both; I wonder how close they are to YSL Gris Deco, which I refrain from purchasing due to owning this duo…

The outlier duo:  NYC Sidewalkers, Zoya Geneviev.  These fit nowhere above or below, while still being definitively grey.  Inserted here to break up any monotony.  🙂

Above and below, continuing with the blue-lavender leaning grays, darker on the spectrum now:

Bernhard Willhelm for Uslu Airlines SBT San Bernardino.  I recently purchased several Uslu Airlines varnishes and love each more than the last.  SBT is particularly special since I spent the first seventeen years of my life in San Bernardino.  Smog alerts are prevalent and were announced often throughout parochial school.  I was always under the youthful impression it was one word:  smoglert.

Nicole by OPI Keep Your Gray Job.  I braved Wal-Mart for this beauty.  In an aisle where every surface of the nail varnish displays and even the floor are splattered and painted a la Jackson Pollock, this bottle was pristine and unopened.

Maybelline Color Show Impeccable Greys.  Picked her up whilst at Wal-Mart, as well.

Zoya Kelly.  Ñam ñam.

Methinks Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Wet Cement might fit here also, but she’s been in the paint recycling bin in my garage ever since someone gifted her to me in a swap long ago.  I was late to the party as always re catching on to these varnish tones and thought Wet Cement a cruel joke, lol…
