Dazzle Dry Morocco Collection for Spring 2009

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I am just so burned out by the time I get home I just can’t deal with MORE computer work! Today I have Dazzle Dry’s new collection for spring 2009 called Morocco. I will tell you now I know next to nothing about Morocco other than it’s dry, hot and desert like. I picture people on camels with long flowy colored scarves riding across a big sand dune. And that about sums it up. So really, I have no clue where the idea for these colors came from, but I assume they did some research, haha! Keep in mind that Dazzle Dry polish is very dull when you don’t use their top coat and I don’t use top coats in my pics so these are dull looking. They do shine up nicely though, so no worries and they dry SUPER fast, no joke!

Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight is a really strange color. This reminds me of something out of the 1960’s for some reason. It’s very bland and somewhat ugly if I dare say so. There are very few colors that I just REALLY don’t like and this, Ladies & Gents, is one of them. The color is a rusted salmon pink/coral. The application was pretty good and it was opaque in two coats. It just does nothing for me and I wonder what in Morocco is this color?

Orly Carnivale for Spring 2009

I took these a few weeks ago and just haven’t gotten it together to show! I am slacking this week, I know, I know. I have TONS of stuff to swatch but since it’s so nice out I don’t feel like swatching all day long. Good things to come though, I promise! So this is Orly’s Carnivale collection for spring 2009. There were some hits & misses for me with his collection, which you will read about below. Pics taken in sun with no top coat.

Orly Prepster for Spring 2009

Sometimes I feel like I have split personalities! Mainly I am a rocker chick; I love lots of eyeliner, dark nails, heavy metal, etc. However I have this crazy other side that’s totally preppy! I LOVE argyle and the color combo of pink/green. Give me an alligator polo and some plaid Chuck Taylors and I will wear them with glee. Anyway that brings me to my point which is that Orly has a new collection for spring called Prepster. A couple of these I loved, a couple weren’t my favs for me, but overall the collection is really great. Pics taken in sun with no top coat.

OPI South Beach for Spring 2009 – Part II

Happy hump day! So here we are with the second part of the OPI South Beach collection for spring 2009. These are the ones that worked better on me and I found to be a bit more interesting. Still though, with the exception of Done Out In Deco, they are all very safe and rather hum drum. Pics taken in sun with no top coat.

Yep it’s red. That’s about all I can really say, another middle of the road poppy-ish red creme. Nice, but nothing new or particularly interesting about it. It leans towards the blue so might work better on fair skin. This was three coats.

Rescue Beauty Lounge for Spring 2009

I FINALLY got my Rescue Beauty colors after having ordered them 3-4 weeks ago! I will never understand how I can get polish from England and China weeks faster than polish from New York, but whatever…Anyway these are freakin awesome and worth the wait! Super duper packed with glitter the spring 2009 collection from RBL isn’t shy and is nothing like they have done in the past. I had no application issues, for a glitter it applied very nicely. Removing it was a cinch, I was very surprised because normally I scrub and scrub to remove them and it wreaks havoc on my cuticles. All pics taken sun in with no top coat.
