Just a baby haul to cheer me up

Some of you may have just read on my Facebook page what happened with me on my birthday yesterday. (If not, you can find it by clicking here )
The WalMart near my house is a sortof smallish one, so finding certain things there is a bit difficult sometimes. I was looking for some specific craft supplies, but after not finding them, I headed over to the polishes.

I was good, I spent less than 5 dollars. I've been wanting to try a matte manicure for awhile now, so I finally picked up NYC's "Matte Me Crazy" top coat. I also grabbed an L.A. Colors nail hardener/base coat. I've been going thru the base coat like crazy. And, I also picked up Sally Hansen's "Ice Queen".
I saw someone swatch Ice Queen on another blog recently, tho I forget where exactly, and I thought it looked rather interesting. It's a bunch of small hex glitters in lavendar and teal floating around in a clear base along with some what looks like silver and multi colored (prismatic, maybe?) micro glitters.
Very interesting, can't wait to try it.
(sorry for the crappy close up shot)

Do you have Ice Queen? What do you think of it? How would you describe Ice Queen to someone?


  1. I don't own Ice Queen but after seeing this, I gotta get me some!

    1. You really should, it's so pretty! And coming from me, that's a shocker, because I don't typically like glitters all that much.

  2. Never tried Ice Queen, but I love Matte Me Crazy!

    1. Well, I am sure that a new matte mani is not very far away for me :)
