It's Jack Rabbit Slim's Twist Contest

Ok movie buffs! Don't peek below til you try to remember what movie this title refers to.  Got it? Now, if you know the movie, then you know what polish I am wearing right?

You guessed it!  I decided to pay homage to a great movie, Pulp Fiction. I am wearing Chanel Vamp. This is the color Uma Thurman wears as Mia Wallace in that movie. I love that movie! Did you guys get it right?

This color is similar to Zoya Anja, but not as dark. You can really see the deep burgundy in this color. I think it's beautiful.

I didn't want to cover up this color and realized that I haven't tried the tip designs in my Bundle Monster plates. I had in mind something lacy and girly but didn't see one that matched my thoughts. So instead I used one of the stripe designs and curved it on my tips. The design is very delicate and it's very cool. I used BM plate 210 and RBL Decorous.

As a side note, I want to bitch about the fall colors coming out next week.  Do all the companies get together and say let's all make the same colors?  It seems that the OPI Touring America and China Glaze Metro collection have a lot in common.  Plus, I just saw the fall Essie colors and man am I pissed! I just spent $$$ on Deborah Lippmann's fall collection and it seems that Essie has put out the same colors but cheaper! Of course, I am only going by pictures, I don't have the polishes in hand yet.  So I may be wrong!

DL Brick House is gonna match Essie Very Structured.  DL Billionare is a dupe for Essie Power Clutch.  And DL Single Ladies seems like Essie Carry On. WTF?!?  I feel like I've been had!

I guess that means more Dupe Days ahead- I see at least 3 more after comparing all the fall collections. So if you guys can hold off on your purchases, I promise once I get all these polishes, to do some dupe comparisons to hopefully save you money since mine has already been spent!

The Essies come out 8/1, as well as the China Glaze.  And the OPI comes out 8/3.  So that gives you a time frame for my dupe days to come-

Let me know if there are some you want me to do, if I have them, I'll add them!

  5. I agree with you about the fall collections. There are a few that I like, but I'm mostly turned off by how they all look the same. Can't wait to see your dupe posts!
