NOTD: China Glaze Ingrid

Ingrid is from the Fall 2010 China Glaze Vintage Vixen collection that was released in July 2010.  She is a medium brown with a micro gold shimmer.  The shimmer isn't as noticeable unless in direct sunlight.  I still like her though, just not in love.  She is very office appropriate, which is great for me.
 These are the products used:
  • CND Stickey Base Coat (Love this!) - 1 Coat
  • Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat (Love this too!)  - 1 coat
  • China Glaze Ingrid - 2 coats
  • Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat - 1 coat
  • Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream (Smells yummy)
See how she kinda looks like a regular dark brownish taupe creme indoors?

This was taken next to the window.  I was able to capture some of the gold shimmer.

Had to open the front door to get some sun for this shot.  Pretty gold shimma!

Navy Baby and Sinful Frenzy....

Yah, my first post on my first blog!  Well, this mani was done a bit ago, probably back in August or September sometime.  I started off with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in "Navy Baby".  It's an awesome navy blue creme.  I have to say that I really love the new SH Complete Salon Manicure polishes.  They have great lasting power and the brush is my favorite part.  I can do a nail in 2 strokes (except the thumb) and not get any on my cuticles.  It is definitely a "2-coater".  Then I added a coat of Sinful Colors "Frenzy".  Wow, is this a beautiful purple and blue glitter!!!  Seems to be equal amounts of the 2 colors and the glitter is small but not micro.
This is a blurry pic so you can see the distinct 2 colors of the glitter in Frenzy.
See how pretty "Frenzy" is in the bottle?
