Sally Hansen Violet Voltage and Orly Be Brave

Good morning, dear readers! :D

Today I have a swatch of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Violet Voltage.

The moment I put this on, it became one of my favourite purples ever! :D Have a gander (and please excuse the crappy clean-up job around the nails >.<;):

It is such an amazingly stunning purple, and contains the most lovely pink shimmer!

Here it is with Orly Be Brave over top (please forgive the glitter trying to escape my nail):

Sparkle sparkle!

Speaking of Orly, I went in to Sally's Beauty Supply the other week (and my Dad bought me polishes!!  Thank you so much Dad! :D), and they were trying to get rid of some of their older polishes (a few specific colours of Finger Paints and some of the glitter China Glaze crackles).  In the bins at the front, they had this Orly and Mermaid's Tale, and you could get 2 for $3.00!!! O_O  So I did!! :D  Mermaid's Tale was one of the Flash Glam FX polishes that I really wanted!  Be Brave isn't one of my favourite polishes ever, but hey, I got it for $1.50! :D  I love a good deal, especially when the two of these would normally set me back around $20.00.

Have you found any great deals lately?  I'd love to hear about them! :)



  1. love this purple. I think I have it in my collection.

  2. ohhh! your nails looks like a party! very nice :D

  3. I think I'm gonna have to go pick up that SH...

  4. I love the base color, but you know how those little worm glitters really scare me >.< I have issues, lol.

  5. OHMG instant lemming, Violet Voltage is super gorgeous!

  6. Whoa they didn't have the Flash Glam FX when I went in, but they did have the Dark Shadows polishes.

    Super pretty purple, I need to get my hands on more xtreme wear polishes, they're so great!

  7. That purple is AMAZEBALLS on you!

  8. I like the bar glitter on top of the purple! Bar glitter always reminds me of fireworks! Nice deal on the polishes, too!

  9. Cool color and great combination. Xoxo V. V.

  10. Love this springtime perfect shade of purple - I'd wear it to attend a lilac festival.

  11. GORGEOUS purple, and I love the bar glitter, too. I so wish SH Xtreme Wear colors liked me more, because they've got such a pretty lineup of colors, but I just can't abide their formula. Anyhoo... This looks like little fireworks on your fingers. :)

  12. Awesome nails!!
