The 5 day NOTD, and the 5 hour NOTD...

Lets get the bad news out of the way first. Ulta Devious is one of the chippiest polishes I own.

I love love love the color, and I was super excited when I saw it in Ulta. I ended up buying 5 of the Ulta polishes, so I hope the rest aren't this awful. Material Girl, which I have already posted, chipped in two days, with one corner chip the first day. I took this picture about 2 hours after applying the polish and konad (using plate m66). As you can see.... it is already chipping.

After that disaster, I decided to go with a brand that usually wears very well for me, the LA Girl Disco Brites. I chose one of my untrieds, Deejay. I LOVE IT! First of all, the color is fabulous. Great formula. I did a cloud konad over it on day two, and applied Barielle Mani Extender over the konad as a topcoat.

Here is is.... at about 5pm on day 5.

As you can see, there is some tip wear, but no chips! This was fantastic, I have never EVER had a polish last this long! I finally took it off last night, and I am already planning the next Disco Brites I am going to buy.

For the record, I used 1 coat CND Stickey, 2 coats Deejay, 1 coat Poshe. The following day, I used WnW White to konad and plate m81, and 1 coat of Barielle Manicure Extender.

As I am sure you may have heard, the new Color Club sets are popping up at a Ross near you! If you think your Ross sucks, you are probably correct. However, if you think that because your Ross sucks they will not have the CC sets, THINK AGAIN!

My Ross is awful. Like, used lotions spilled out on the floor and stained clothing hanging up on the racks. I did not have faith in it. At the end of last year, there were reports of a few CC sets showing up at Ross.... most importantly to me the Glitter Vixen set. I went to my Ross, expecting nothing. But.... sitting there, in a bin full of strange crap no one will ever buy.... THREE Glitter Vixen sets! Woooooo! I of course bought one.

So this time around, I had high hopes for finding the new CC sets at my Ross. I was also hoping to run across the Electro Candy set, which has eluded me all this time. My Ross always has the flower power set in an Electro Candy box. It is not nice to tease me like that, Ross!

So as soon as the reports started popping up on the NB, I set out on the journey to my Ross. It failed. There was nothing. I was sad. It was during finals week and I was hoping for a pick me up (and an excuse to take a break from studying) but I was sadly mistaken. I swooned over the constant "I found the CC sets at my Ross!" posts on NB. But I was still determined!

Four days later.... I decided to venture out to Ross once again. SUCCESS! There were TWO CC Rebel Debutant sets, the set I most desired of the three new ones. I of course immediately grabbed it and carried it around the store much like a child. I was a little sad that I was not able to find the Poptastic set.... but now that I had validated my hopes of finding the sets, I was on a mission!

I went to another Ross about 20 minutes away the next day. I went with my mom, who thought I was psycho for wanting to go to Ross. Like I said, our Ross' are awful. This new Ross also had two RD sets, and three Pardon my French sets. The PmF set didn't excite me enough to buy it... so we left empty handed. Luckily, there was a Sally's nearby to soothe my pain.

Then yesterday, after work, I decided to check the downtown Ross (within walking distance of work.... so... it was justified, right?) and sitting there, all alone, was the REAL Electro Candy set! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! There were also a few PmF, but the neons of course blew them out of the water! So ladies, if you Ross mainly sells broken home decor and smells like a public restroom, do not fear! There is still hope!

And PS: Sorry about the lack of NOTD posts, my current NOTD (LA Girl Disco Brites Deejay) has lasted FIVE DAYS!!!!!! THIS IS UNHEARD OF! So, I haven't changed it yet, I am far too amazed by the lasting power. I will be posting pics of this one soon, I decided to wait and take a pic today to show how perfect it still looks after all this time :)
