Left photo is with no flash and the right photo is with flash; both are indoors.
If I have not previously stated, I'm totally a Starbucks addict, so I of course had to take a picture while holding my coffee in the sun. Picture still doesn't do this nail polish justice in my opinion, and beware, WILL cause staring while driving in the sun!
My next purchases were from Serum No5: "Day Glow" (previous may be found here), "Burning Orchid", and "Twilight Sparks." I started with "Burning Orchid" first and did about 3 coats with it on top of just plain, no base color nails. I would recommend using it as a topcoat on another polish as it is a little shear when it's just on it's own but either way, it's still great! And I, of course, forgot to super charge my nails to be able to get an in the dark photo of the glow.
Both photos were taken with flash.
"Twilight Sparks" to me is a shimmery forest green polish that may be a little sheer for just one coat, but with a second coat, it's much better. A third coat would be necessary if you find some other spots that are quite as covered as the rest of the nail. I also once again forgot to super charge my nails and get an in dark picture with this one as well (can you tell that I may be a little stressed out?)

My last purchase that I'm able to show you guys for now (I'll get to that soon) is "Nightcrawler" from Polished by KPT which I had on for basically a week straight, kid you not! I had the normal tip wear and also a small chip or 2 on a nail or so which was amazing to me. "Nightcrawler" is a thermal which I love because it's really nice to see whether my hands are hot or cold by noticing what color my nails are. It's also really fun to make a gradient/ombre with the polish too by sticking part of the nail into either hot or cold water and watch it change! I took several photos on my nails while I had this polish on but I'll just show you a couple.
When the your hands are warm this is the color that the nail polish turns. It's a light, shimmery purple and it still covers completely with no seeing your nail underneath.
When your hands are cold this is the color that the nail polish turns and is the color you see when you look at the website. It's an awesome "deep but not so deep" purple and I absolutely love it.
In these two photos you can (hopefully) see the subtle gradient/ombre effect that happens in the process of your hands going from hot to cold. This is definitely quite amusing to me because it just looks so awesome and cool when it's shifting colors! Guess you guys will just have to purchase the polish and try it out for yourselves! ;)
My last order was from NCLA but when I received my package and looked at "Eight Days A Week" I noticed that it was not the same color that the website shows it as. The website photo makes it look more of a light blue when in real life it is more of a lavendar purple. Seeing as this was disappointing, I sent an email to NCLA and within a short period of time I got a nice response. Even though I wasn't happy with the nail polish, their customer service has always been wonderful to me and I've never had problems with them. They were very nice about the matter and let me know that I was more than welcome to exchange the nail polish so I sent both back since I already had "Pick Me Up At Melrose Place." It's been a few weeks since I've sent them back and yesterday I sent another email asking about the situation and was once again emailed in a timely manner with a very nice response. After I replied about which nail polishes I wanted for my exchange a couple hours later I got an email response back along with a tracking number for my package from them. Usually I would be really annoyed by a situation like this but the fact that I got email responses, in general, and very nice replies and a lot of help, made the situation not so big of a deal. That is the great thing about NCLA is that they really care about their customers and are willing to help with whatever they can!
