I haven't blogged about bath products in ages, but I just had to share my most recent haul.  Everything arrived this week, and there are a ton of pics after the jump!

InDecisiveLacquer Speckled Neon collection

purchased by me

To cleanse my palate and my soul (and yours!) from the horror that was the Pony Pack, I have the Speckled Neon collection from InDecisive Lacquer.  The collection consists of four mini bottles of matte neon glitters in blue, green, pink and yellow.  The formula was very good--not too thick, not too thin, with a nice amount of glitter and a good spread in just one coat.  All swatches are one coat over Cult Nails Tempest.

The Speckled Neon collection is available at the InDecisiveLacquer shop on Etsy for $17.25 + shipping.

OPI Mustang collection: Pony Pack

purchased by me

Of the OPI + Ford collection, I adored The Sky's My Limit and had my socks bored right off me by Pony Pack.  Thirteen dollars for four basic colors, only two of which were done right?  Bleah.

50 years is a standard gold metallic, opaque in two coats and unforgiving of nail ridges.

Angel with a Leadfoot is a horrible white cream--I've shown three coats and it's still a streakfest.  C'mon, OPI, by now you should be able to do a streak-free white!

Girls Like Ponies is a flawless formula in a standard pink crème--only one coat!

Race Red is a standard red crème with a nice, two-coat formula.

I'm mostly ticked with myself for buying this, but I'm not thrilled with OPI raising the price of the minis and disappointed with the plebeian choices of color and the fact that the white is a mess.  If you disagree with my opinion, you can find the Pony Pack at Ulta.

OPI + Ford Mustang collection: The Sky's My Limit

purchased by me

Wow, this polish is just gorgeous--a deep shimmering blue loaded with gold flecks.  The formula was as easy as the polish is beautiful, and it reached bottle color in two effortless coats.  Well worth the price!
