30 Days of Untrieds - Day 1: Wet N Wild Believe Me, It's Real

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers! I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween! Can you believe that it's November already? Crazy! It seems like just yesterday it was summer time! To commemorate the start of a new month, the lovely Taylor of Nailed To The T had a brilliant idea. As all nail polish hoarders like myself know, we all have many, many untrieds! Polishes that fell through the cracks or we haven't gotten around to yet that need to be shown some love! So, for the next 30 days, the idea is to wear a different polish every day! I will still be showing you guys collections and fun stuff, but this is a great way for me to get through a good chunk of my collection!

First up, I have a polish from the new Wet N Wild Ice Ice Baby Collection. These polishes are a Walgreens exclusive and are really pretty amazing! So now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Glitter bomb! Believe Me, It's Real is a royal blue micro glitter that's infused with slightly larger deep purple round glitter. I love this color. It's so intense and vibrant! Now, it did take me 3 coats of polish to get it fully opaque (and you can see that at the tips it's not quite opaque but that's just due to the nature of glitter) but beware! This polish is a top coat eater! It took THREE coats of top coat to mostly smooth out the polish and make it shiny! The polish itself dries almost matte, so you better make sure to have your thickest top coat handy when trying this one! I love how unique this polish is, I definitely have no dupes and it looks like a party on my nails!

These polishes retail for $3.99 each and can be found at Walgreens only, so if you like glitter, start hunting for them! Also be sure to check out the other bloggers participating in the 30 day challenge who are listed below:

  15. I think it's fun when a bunch of you bloggers who are friends get on a 'mission' together. I think I can pass on this one - I am not a huge glitter fan - mostly removal issues - and I have a blue glitter and 1 that is a tish teal but more blue already that I don't wear. I am starting to use my Stripe Rites to paint a 'French' line on the tips and keep thinking good use for some of my glitters. I need to get some correct brushes to use. I have a Walgreens about 30 miles away my insurance makes me use - but they don't have much of anything in polish. Something happened to W&W distribution a while back. I hear it from others around the US too. It used to be a main stay of all drugstores.

  16. Ji An lived at the time of Emperor Wudi of the Western Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D.24). He was respected for being upright and just archeage money and for daring to speak the truth. He did not bother about small matters in personal behavior and in being archeage gold an official. He was particular about actual effects and, although he did not cause a stir, he could keep the prefecture he governed in perfect order. Because of this, the imperial court transferred him to the central government from being the perfect of the Donghai archeage money Prefecture to being a commander in charge of the appointment and dismissal of the local officials.

  17. Sleep is very ancient. In the electroencephalographic sense we share it with all the primates and almost all the other mammals and birds: it may Atlantica Gold extend back as far as the reptiles. There is some evidence that the two types of sleep, dreaming and dreamless, depend on the life-style of the animal, and that predators are statistically much more likely to dream than prey, which are in turn much more likely to experience dreamless sleep. In dream sleep, the animal is powerfully immobilized and remarkably Atlantica online Gold unresponsive to external stimuli. Dreamless sleep is much shallower, and we have all witnessed cats or dogs cocking their ears to a sound when apparently fast asleep. The fact that deep dream sleep is rare among pray today seems clearly to be a product of natural selection, and it makes sense that today, when sleep is highly evolved, the stupid animals are less frequently immobilized by deep sleep Atlantica Gold than the smart ones. But why should they sleep deeply at all? Why should a state of such deep immobilization ever have evolved?
