Essie Stash and Pink Parka

Despite the absence from blogging I've still been painting my nails. I've also been taking photos of my stash.

I tried to take a photo of all of my Essie's, but somehow it didn't quite happen.

Here's Pink Parka, the very first polish in the row.

This polish is BRIGHT. Eye-burning, tacky tacky bright. I love it, even if it only seems appropriate to pair it with some platinum teased hair and fake eyelashes. 

NARS Orgasm

After a bit of a hiatus I'm back to show y'all NARS Orgasm. I have to admit I'm a fan of the cult favorite blush, but I've never ventured beyond the original. It's a bit excessive in my opinion, there's super orgasm blush, lipgloss, the multiple, gosh!

I have to admit though, despite the name I'm left a bit underwhelmed by this polish. Sure, it's pretty, and I liked it on Katherine (the owner of this lovely polish), but frankly this polish just didn't do it for me.

It's a really pretty coral color with a bit of sparkle like the original blush. 

Pretty sparkle! 

What a disappointment that something named after the almost unachievable for most women should leave me so underwhelmed. How....typical.

Here it is next to my pan of well-used blush, which unfortunately looks a little dirty in this photo. It's probably due to use.
