Sation Shock Me Twice Pink




Hi. I’m still here even though I’m ready to murder someone because of the heat. In fact, it feels like even my hair is sweating. However, I should not be complaining because there are a bunch of demonic wildfires here in Southern California so I just want to say I hope that the people affected are able to recover. I also want to thank all the brave firefighters who are working to contain the fires. This is something that we see every summer but it never gets less tragic and scary.

I wasn’t planning on painting my nails today, but I just randomly picked up Sation Shock Me Twice Pink because it’s one of the most electric pinks that I own. My camera pretty much took a million dumps when I tried to get a color accurate picture. Just imagine the polish being darker and more neon…then multiply it by 5 million. I love this polish!

Unfortunately, 100 degree weather doesn’t cooperate with any nail polish so I got tons of bubbles even though I waited 10 minutes between coats. Poo! Incidentally, I haven’t heard a peep from Sation since they put out their fall collection so I hope they’re still in business because I love their polishes!

I am super glad that tomorrow is Friday! I just started a new job so of course my first weekend is going to be lovely. I know that in the past I talked a lot about my other job, but I won’t continue that trend. Ultimately, I think I was way too stressed out and rehashing my job woes only made the situation worse. I hope you’re all doing well and that you’re staying cool if you’re in one of the hot zones. Thanks for the visit and stay cool!

Stamping Sunday: Pulsating Pink And Purple

I feel like I have been in a total funk lately so when I remembered the Sunday Stamping theme, I had absolutely no idea what to do. I took out a bunch of pink and purple polishes and it came down to Sation Shock Me Twice Pink and Sation Power To The Purple. I thought about combining the two, but changed my mind. So I went with two coats of Shock Me Twice pink over a base of China Glaze White Out.


I really like Shock Me Twice Pink because it’s neon but still delicate. It has a really pretty shimmer that shows up unexpectedly at certain angles.


I then used stamp Mash 48 and Wet N Wild’s I Can’t Stand Up Straight for the design.


Since I still wanted some kind of purple accent, I used these purple rhinestones on my design. I always think rhinestones will look better than they end up looking once I glue them on my nails. I should just give up on rhinestones already!

So how was your weekend? I hope you had fun. Thanks for stopping by despite my uninspired nails as of late. I hope this coming week finds me in a better frame of mind. I actually have another post coming soon and it is one spicy tamale full of glitter goodness. I hope you will enjoy it!

Cool Summer

When I was a kid, I thought this song was called cool summer and not cruel summer. I was born in 1979 so I wasn’t fully aware of pop culture in my childhood years during the 80’s so it always makes me laugh when I remember snippets of stuff like this song. Granted I am more into the Ace of Base version…and I’ll move on because then I’ll start talking about my obsession with Ace of Base and ABBA and that ALWAYS ends poorly.

Although it’s technically not summer yet, it’s usually pretty warm here in Southern California in early June. Surprisingly, the weather has been very mild lately. I’m a little shocked but also happy because I hate the summer heat. HATE IT. I am definitely NOT looking forward to this summer. The one thing I do love about summer are all the summer nail polish collections! I haven’t had the time or energy to go to my nail polish mecca lately so I haven’t seen all the pretty new polishes in person–just drooled over them online.

Today I have another three awesome summery colors from Miss Professional Nail’s Sation Line. I had a difficult time getting good pictures of these colors because they are neons and my camera was going crazy. Other than that, I love these colors! I love the shimmer in the first two and love the creaminess of the darker one. I always find that neons/mattes are kind of a pain to work with but these were not too bad! The formula is a tad too thick for my liking but it’s not a huge deal if you apply the polish carefully.

Shock Me Twice Pink is just that: an electric pink. This is a staple neon color for summer so it’s not terribly unique but it sure is gorgeous. It’s such a beautiful glowing color. I just got flashbacks of eating cubes of Bubble Yum or stuffing my mouth full of Big League Chew. Don’t lie…you know you did it too.

Show Off Your Navel Orange seems like more of a cantaloupe color to me. It’s a nice color, but I don’t feel that it really flatters my skin tone. Again, this color is super bright and has that great shimmer that so many neons seem to have lately.

Fan the Flames Fuchsia is my favorite of the three. It’s a creamy color that doesn’t dry satin/matte like a traditional neon but it’s super bright and saturated. This one had the best formula of the three as well.

How do you feel about neons? Are you feeling the trend or do you think it’s just getting annoying like crackle and magnetic polish? I love to wear these bright colors on my nails since I tend to purchase mostly neutral colors for my wardrobe. Let me know what you think!
