Six Flags Here I Come!

This should be a fun day, we're going to Six Flags today with my in-laws and my SIL and her family. So six adults and six kids to Six flags. This should be a blast! I am not a huge roller coaster junkie, but I love going to amusement parks and pushing myself. I say I hate roller coasters, but the reality is I am afraid of heights. I love the roller coasters but the fear rules. Once I am back safely on the ground, I am always glad I went on them. But today my niece has me convinced I have to do this bungee swing thing they have there. I have been bungee jumping once before. Since I am deathly afraid of heights, I thought this would help cure me. It was exhilarating and the worst thing ever all at the same time. So since my niece doesn't enjoy roller coasters much, but loves this thing, I thought - OK if she can do it, I can do it. Did I mention I'm afraid of heights? Why did I say I would do this? I am already a wreak over agreeing to this. But I can't be the aunt that backs down, so I am going to have to do it. So if you don't see a post from me tomorrow, it's because I didn't make it out alive. Wish me luck!

Today's mani is another one of my favorites. This is China Glaze Side Saddle. When I got this one, I wasn't sure what to expect. If I am careful with my application, I can do a great mani in two coats. I love this one in two coats. Unfortunately for me most of the time I am not careful and I need to do three coats, It still looks great, but it changes color - sort of. Here it is with two coats. Notice the sparkle and the purpleness here?

Now here it is with a third coat. In the first picture you can still see the base is purple, but now it is taking on more of a brown hue and losing that awesome obvious purple.I haven't seen the Vintage Vixen collection in person, but this one kind of reminds me of that based on the pictures I have seen. I love these kinds of polishes where the glitter is micro-glitter and it looks like it shimmers from within. I can't wait to get my hands on the Vintage Vixen Collection. I just haven't had a chance to order it. Maybe once I get back from vacation, I can order it. Anyway on to the photos with three coats.

I also wanted to show a photo inside with flash. This is what the color looks like inside. I feel this gives a true representation of what the color looks like. Well unless you live outside of course. And the best part - even though it says $2.99 on the bottle, I grabbed this one on final clearance for $1!!! 

I better go get ready now, otherwise everyone will be waiting for me and I'm sure they won't like that! Have a great day!



  1. It's gorgeous! Have fun today :)

  2. Awesome colour, great price! I love finding polishes on sale :)

    Good luck with the bungee jumping!

  3. I do see how the color changes with the third coat! Have fun!!! Maybe I will have this baby before you get back =)

  4. Hi, just found your awesome blog. I have this colour, isn't it just lovely. Lucky you finding it in a sale also.

  5. Ohh, SO pretty, and even better because it was on sale! I don't know why, but for me, finding polishes I love on sale is such a thrill. It makes my whole day!

    I can see how that polish changes depending on how many coats you put on. That's interesting, and gives you versatility! More purple today, more brown tomorrow... :D

  6. GAH!! I'm the same way about heights and roller coasters, but I don't think I'd ever be brave enough to agree to the bungee thing lol. I hope you had fun! :D Oh and I like this color :)

  7. WOW this is one of my BIGGEST lemmings i cant believe you got it for $1 luuuuuucky :) it looks awesome!!
