CQ: Slate + Sinful Colors Nail Art: Fashionista

Hey y'all! I'm so ready for this week to be over. I'm just over it. I'm sure y'all know what I mean!
So I've been trying really hard to step up my game with nail art. The first SC nail art polish I bought was Fashionista, and I tried that out here with a base of CQ Slate. I was kinda going for the tiger stripe deal, but I don't think you can really do that with a glitter. I don't know. Y'all will just have to let me know what you think about it.

I LOVE the CQ polish! I'm almost always impressed with the brand. And it only needed two coats, which makes me love it even more. If y'all didn't know, you can find CQ polishes at Rite Aid and they're about $3 I think. I'm not 100% on that price, but they're not expensive at all. And the Sinful Colors Nail Art polishes have been popping up at lots of different drugstores in my area. Those are about the same price as the regular SC polishes. I noticed that Rite Aid has the largest color selection. Seriously, like every color under the sun. I'll definitely be going back for more!
On another note, I think I've purchased way too much nail polish in the last few weeks. It's all flooding my desk, and just getting kinda overwhelming. Never thought I'd say that. But I think I need to pay more attention to what I'm buying. There are TONS of polishes I want right now, but it's really not good for my bank account. I need to focus on the bigger picture. Everything costs money, so I should be cutting back a little bit on the unnecessary things. Y'all did want to hear all that, right? Ha. Didn't think so.
Well that's all I've got for right now! I'm thinking that Thursday afternoon & Friday will be swatch days for me. I have a lot to get caught up on.
So what did y'all think of my nail art? What do y'all think of that CQ polish? Any other CQ fans out there? Let me know!
Thanks for reading. :)

So cute. You know I love Slate! I wasn't going to paint my nails tonight but your post motivated me to stay up a little extra and paint them :)

I instantly thought "tiger stripes!" when I saw the pictures, so I think it works with glitter! Super cute and I love the color combo!

Kay said...

Very cute! I know what you mean about polish. I've bought plenty this month and need to cool it.

Take care!

Nail Nerd said...

They look great! Glitter is a pain in the butt when it comes to lines and stuff :D

Really pretty! I don't have a rite aid =[ the closest one is 45 minutes away =[

You did a great job on the nail art though! Keep it up girly!

The CQ polish is great! Your nail art looks great! I have several of those nail art things but I never use them. They are hard to use!

Karen C said...

Now ,where in the heck was I when you were creating this cool stuff?!! That is awesome!!!

KarenD said...

I like CQ! I just wish RA would put them on sale more often. :)

Love it, Livy! I didn't have that problem with over buying until I started blogging. Now that I see everything, I want everything! lol

Sandra said...

This looks so nice. :)

Emily- I'm glad I motivated you to do your nails! :)

Pinupcherrymakeup- Aw thanks! I'm glad you were thinking tiger stripes, haha. I wasn't sure if people would get that or not. :)

Kay- Haha! Glad you get where I'm coming from. Thanks! :)

Nail Nerd- Thanks! Yeah, I noticed that. It all kinda looks out of place, but it still turned out ok. :)

Nail Art Epicness- I didn't live near a Rite Aid in FL, and I missed out some great polishes... but that's probably better because I didn't spend the money. lol. Thanks! :)

imfeelingnail-venturous- Thank you! I'm sorry you're not a big fan of the SC nail art polishes! I've never really worked with nail art polishes other than SC so I don't really have any complaints! But the glitter one is a little harder to use. I still like them, though. :)

Karen C- It was a couple Fridays ago, but isn't it cool?!? Thank you! :)

KarenD- I know, right?! I don't think I've ever seen them on sale. But I don't really pay attention to their ads, so that's probably why. :)

thenailaholic- Aww thanks! Ahh! I know. If I wasn't blogging so much, I'd be oblivious to all the new polishes. :)

Sandra- Thank you! :)

that's a beautiful color and I really like your sparkly stripes very cute! I just recently got my fist CQ polish and I really like them.

Madeline said...

I love Slate! It's my first/only CQ polish. I love the color so much.

I need to save my money too...luckily I'm not really obsessed with any upcoming collections. Well, so far.

Olivia C. said...

beauxs mom- Thanks! I'm glad you like CQ! :)

Madeline- Yay! It's such a pretty color. I'm not really crazy about any upcoming collections either, thank GOD! :)
