Del Sol- Knockout and some Nail Mail Goodies!

Since we've been having some wonderful weather here, I thought I would try out one of my Del Sol polishes. This is Knockout. It is a sheer nude color and it changes a rosy pink in the sun. The outside of the sun color kind of reminds me of a more opaque OPI Bubble Bath. I discovered that these polishes only work in direct sunlight. The above picture was taken in my car, and it still remained the bottle color.

Here's another picture in my car, but this is after I stepped back inside it after standing out in the sun. My thumb was the most exposed to the sun, so this kind of looks like an ombre manicure. 

Here the color is shifted for the most part. This is out in direct sunlight. This isn't the best picture. The neighbors in my apartment complex were giving me weird looks, so I was in a hurry to go back inside!

Here is indoors without the flash. The formula was alright, but a little bit streaky. This took three coats for opacity.

Now on to the new additions!!!
I got some nail mail from Sandy from Dandy Nails. She had a blog sale and it included some of my long-time lemmings!! I got Dare to Wear- Disc Jockey, OPI- OPI Ink suede, China Glaze- Cyberspace and Gamer Glam, and Sinful Colors-Green Ocean. I now just need one more OPI suede to make my suede collection complete. I've wanted Cyberspace and Gamer Glam for a while, and I was really angry with myself for not buying them while they were accessible at Sally's so I was lucky to find them for a reasonable price. I also never was able to track down Green Ocean, so I'm happy I have it now!

My order from Trans Design came in. I ordered the China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters collection as well as other polishes I wanted. Here is Riveting, Marry a Millionaire, Optical Illusion, and Polarized.

Here's Full Spectrum, Ray-Diant, Liquid Crystal, and Prism. These are so unique! I can't wait to try them out!

I also ordered Essie-Navigate Her and Barielle- Falling Star. 


  1. That Del Sol polish is pretty cool! Awesome haul too!

  2. Thanks! Next time, I'm going to wait until summer to wear a Del Sol polish, because I actually wasn't out in the sun that much haha.

  3. The Del Sol ombre is pretty fun--too bad you can't freeze it that way. :)

    P.S. Not sure you're aware you've got word verification turned on--thought I'd let you know since it can be hard for people to navigate through it.

    1. I love the ombre look!

      I didn't even know the word verification was enabled. I fixed it. Now people can comment away with ease :)
