A Tale of 3 Cremes

Once upon a time, there lived many oft-neglected cremes in Sarah's stash. They pined away as she put glitter after glitter on her nails or covered up these cremes with glitter [because she's a complete magpie/glitter whore]. So these cremes lay, languishing to never be worn.. Until one day, when 3 cremes came along and reminded Sarah why a good creme [while not nearly as sparkly as her beloved glitters] certainly have a well-deserved place in her stash, and are beautiful in their own way. And all were happy! The end.

Haha, okay, but really. This was inspired by a mini swap I did with Steph of Short N Chic. I got American Apparel's Butter from her and it looked sooo pretty! So I had to put it on right away:]

This is so soft and pretty and yellow!! and I love it! It had me looking at my hands a lot, which surprised me actually. Plus, it was this opaque and even in just 2 coats. Most yellows take at LEAST 3 and still look nothing like this. The tradeoff, though, is that the formula has this thick but runny thing, so it takes a little maneuvering. But honestly? With an end result like this, it's more than worth it:]

Next up is Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic's Swamp Thing

[Sorry for the beat-up mani, I wore this all day before having the chance to take pictures and it was a brutal day on my nails] 2 ridiulously easy coats of murky, swampy, greeny gorgeousness! A friend in class told me she really liked this polish, so you know it's a winner. I never took the plunge with RBL's No More War; I never knew if it would actually look good on me. But I'm glad I didn't spend the money on that, this fulfills that lemming AND I like it on my skin:]

Finally, RBL Recycle:

My first ever RBL! I got this off a blog sale a while ago for a really reduced price, so I had to snatch it up. The formula on RBLs take a little getting used to, in that they're thinner than I expected. But the polish went right where I wanted it to go and 2 coats later, I got this amazing green you see up there^. I got compliments on this mani, too! Surprisingly, it was from a guy friend who rarely notices "girly" things like nail polish haha. He literally grabbed my fingers, stared at them, and went "...woah." So definitely a good thing!!

Whew, kudos to you for getting through that! Hope you've liked my venture into the magical world of cremes!;] Which one of these is your favorite??

P.S. I hit 200 followers!! Stay tuned for a giveaway soon!
