The color that I topped it off with is kiss goodbye, a gorgeous multicolor with base colors of well...everything! If you look closely you can see a slight pink tint in the polish:
But I digress, I am now on a strict no buy nail polish order! The only reason (well not the only) that I bought these polishes was that I had about 10$ worth of eBay bucks that were about to expire, so I bought the lot of Kleancolors and only paid 4$ for them after the discount :) I will post pictures of the lot, mostly glitters though. I also realized that even though Kleancolor is 3-free, they do contain camphor. That may explain the horrible smell! But then again, camphor is in my medicated cherry chapstick.. (1%) I don't know if this is a good thing, but if I can put it on my lips, then it can't be too horrible in my polish. (don't mind me..I'm just muttering to myself) But that's it for now, ta-ta!

I showed the color to Renee, and we got into a discussion about how much it would suck that we would have to buy a whole new set just for that one color. The only thing besides that it to get a dupe, and in our search the only color I could think of its Mermaid to order by OPI for Sephora and NYC Glossies 241. They come kind of close, but no cigar. Mermaid is duochrome and NYC 241 is very sheer! You need about 5 coats of it to get that actual color. And Renee added that it doesnt have as much as a metallic look than Aquarius. But that's it for now! I need to watch some Thursday night TV and vegggg...

These two polishes are limited for Valentines Day, available at Target in the dollar spot, for only a buck! The two colors available are red to dark pink and dark pink to light pink. The packing is so pretty I almost don't want to open them.. but I will ^_^
If you want them, grab them SOON because they will be gone fast! Swatches to come soon, when my nails are long enough (I will explain why later ;) )

This is from their Mineral FX collection, a gorgeous burgundy polish with gold shimmer. I found it when I was in Ulta with Erika about a week and a half ago. At first I picked up Galaxy Girl, a BEAUTIFUL multi-chrome, but I put it down and picked this one instead because it reminded me of Hard Candy's Beetle, which I have, and I didn't want to have too many of the same polishes (plus this one is SO pretty!) but now I'm having regrets and I feel I should have just got both.. so if anyone has Galaxy Girl, I can trade you a good Japanese polish for it!

This is the Flormar 418 polish that Dee sent me in our swap. After painting my nails, I realized that this color is the perfect dupe for Chanel Paradoxal, a beautiful dusty grayish-purple with pink duochrome shimmer. The formula is amazing, one coat for full opacity! I definitely want more Flormar polishes. For a low cost brand, (about one Euro) the quality is amazing.. now if only our brand equivalents were as good (NYC and Wet n Wild, here's looking at you!) Too bad we can't get this brand in the US (and Japan for me haha) All I know is, I definitely want more!

But as much as the smell is a downer, these really are amazing. And for the price, I can invest in a clothes pin for my nose, ha ha. I would also like to note that the dry time is very fast! I would clock it at about five minutes. Even faster with a coat of Seche Vite!
I can't wait to try another color, I have been testing different bases, and so far they look amazing.. except white.. which kind of sucks, because of the potential! But that is it for now, tomorrow I will post my hauls from Christmas Break, tata!
