I'm on a Roll! (and a Teaser Post)

Hey, since I was all sorts of motivated to keep publishing, I figured I'd roll with it. First off, I purchased 7 of the 12 China Glaze Capitol Colors polishes. I'll get around to wearing them all or using them in different designs I already have planned. The first one I chose to wear is such a gorgeous, out of the box color for me. After my water marble frenzy, I wanted a soft, soothing color with just a hint of POW! I think China Glaze Fast Track is just the polish for the occasion.

This polish is a light taupe with golden flecks throughout. It's made to represent District 6- Transportation.

Here is a closer shot in more direct sunlight. See the beautiful sparkle?

Just another sunlight shot.

Alright, on to my excitement for the day! As some of you know, I recently won a nail polish giveaway. I NEVER win things. I just don't have that kind of luck, but still I continue to try. My persistence finally paid off! Kirsten over at All That Glitters hosted a giveaway for her all new, handmade Bowie polish collection. Handmade polish? David Bowie? Sparkly Glitter? Uhm...yes please?!
I had heard about her polishes through Traci on her blog. I fell in love with the All That Glitters look! So I figured, what the heck, let's give it a try. I entered and during the worst week I've had in a long while, I got a notification on Facebook saying that I had won! These 4 beautiful polishes were mine!
Well, I walked to my mailbox this afternoon and behold! A package was inside! I quickly grabbed it and ran back to the house! I ripped into the package and couldn't wait to see what was inside! I snapped a quick picture of the gorgeous and practical wrapping Kirsten used. I want this tape!

(Sorry for the wonky picture direction. My editing program decided it liked the picture better this way 0_o)

And now, on to the best part! The polishes themselves! 

 The Jean Genie- this one has so much gorgeous goodness going on in it, I don't even know where to start! It seems to have a fun pearl blue base with white bar, tiny hex, and medium hex glitter. Then there's some silver micro and hex glitter, tiny blue hex glitter, and tiny green hex glitter. Just delicious!

Ziggy Stardust- this one has just as much going on in it! It has a tangerine/ sunset pink base and is packed to the brim with awesome glitter as well! There's gold micro, bar, and tiny hex glitter with some added white hex glitter as well. So summery!

Rebel Rebel- this one looks like it has a fun purple pearl base to it with lots of glitter! I see white bar and hex glitter, then there's silver micro glitter, and it's finished off with some blackish/gun metal tiny hex glitter.

Space Oddity- this one looks like a slightly sheer smoky black base with silver micro glitter and white bar, and various hex size glitter.

(Just another shot of the bottles!

Can I say I'm in love with all of these? Because I am. I'll be swatching them within the next couple of days- after I go see the Hunger Games.

Thank you so much, Kirsten. I can't wait to try these out!

My next post will be in a few days and I just can't wait to show it! I'll be going to see the Hunger Games this Sunday and I'll be wearing my nerdy Hunger Games shirt and will be rocking my Hunger Games inspired manicure. Be sure to check it out!

Thanks for reading!
