China Glaze Go Go Pink and Pretty and Polished Valentino






















Before I picked this up I owned approximately one pink polish, so I figured it was about time to get another (it helped that this came with a bottle of Seche Vite and was on clearance for $7). Go Go Pink is a warm-toned sheer baby pink creme. Pictured is three coats, and I would have definitely done another if I wasn’t going to go over it with something else anyways. I had some problems with it being streaky, but it wasn’t anything too horrible. It was thin, but not so thin that I couldn’t do thick coats, which was nice. AND even though I did semi thick coats and didn’t wait very long in between coats, I had no bubbles! I have the worst luck with getting bubbles so me = happy.
I’m not much of a pink person but I do really like this color. I’m not sure how I feel about it with my skin tone, but oh well. Its a nice springy color and I’m sure I’ll be able to use it a lot with nail art. 
This is the part where I tell you how much it retails for and where to get it, but I’m fairly certain it only comes in the set I mentioned above, which looks like this:













Because it was on clearance I don’t even know how much the original set costs. I got this at Sally Beauty Supply, and there was another one there, so it would be worth checking if you live near a Sally’s. You can definitely find this on Amazon though, and the set itself can be found on eBay.













Oh my gosh I’m obsessed with black and white glitter. Lynnderella Connect the Dots is something I’ve wanted since I first saw it, but of course the availability of it is low and the demand is high. I’m a pretty passive person so I’m not going to fight my way to it, I’ll stick to heavily hinting to my boyfriend about it. He can deal with the nail polish crazed ladies :)
ANYWAYS, Valentino is awesome! It has large, medium, small, and fine black glitter as well as medium, small, and fine white glitter. The white isn’t flat white, it’s more pearly, and I find that the small and fine white glitter gets kind of lost, but that could also be because my base color is so light. Also I didn’t get any of the large black glitter :( I still love this though! It has satisfied all of my black and white glitter needs! My only regret is buying the mini instead of the full size, but alas, jobless student.
Oh, and this is one coat, I should probably have mentioned that.
Pretty and Polished Valentino Mini (7ml) sells for $4.75 here. I forget how much the full sized costs or I’d include that too. The shop is currently on vacation, but it will be fully restocked on Wednesday April 4th.
