I didn't really have a plan for this manicure; I just thought these 2 colors would compliment each other nicely. I used Charlotte Russe Jade & Orly Galaxy Girl, two of my favorite colors. I was hoping that Jade would highlight the gorgeous shimmer in Galaxy Girl. I should have chosen a different way to use them together though. I randomly pulled out a smART Nails sticker stencil and got accidental eggplant nails! Still a pretty color combination.

I LOVE this color! I got tons of compliments on it. Easy application, three coats. This is my current favorite mint green. If any of you are still looking for the perfect mint, please check out this amazing post from Little Music Boxes!
This is the first manicure that I did with the fantastic smART Nails sticker stencils that I've been using lately. Not bad for my first try, but I didn't end up liking the color combo as much as I thought I would. I was going for a sort of art deco look. Maybe a coral would have been better than the berry, but I don't actually have any corals!

This polish says metallic on the label and I originally thought that was it's name. I figured out today that is just a category of Charlotte Russe polishes. They have a few labeled Metallic, a few labeled Chunky Glitter and another category that I can't remember right now. Anyway, this unamed polish is lovely! Charcoal with very fine holographic glitter. This one never looks black in any light and you can always see some of that holo glitter! Opaque in two, easily applied coats. Nothing special about the bottle or brush, but no complaints either. I didn't even know that Charlotte Russe carried nail polish; I picked this up on whim while helping Ashley shop for a New Year's Eve outfit. I say it was a good purchase at $3.50. Fairly unique and very wearable. I really want to pick up a bottle of their Jade color after seeing it on Polish Up's blog.
