Tempest in a...

Good morning, my loves!
Wow, has my week flown by! It's my Thursday and I'm looking forward to my days off. Probably because my arms are so sore from processing furniture. Let me tell you, most of the prefab stuff is not light! The good thing about it is that I gots me some guns and the bikini body will be good to go come March. Damn, I love my job!

Now on to the nail polish! This morning I bring you China Glaze Tempest.

Two coats, no base or top, indoor light

I don't know why I did not buy this sooner. My sister picked hers up during a trip with me to Sally to get the Romantique collection. I walked out with Adore and she got this. I played with this back in September and decided I needed my own bottle. I didn't do so until like three weeks ago. Yeah, I suck.

Nonetheless. Tempest is a lovely blurple with slight duochrome. Sometimes it looks more purple that flashes blue and vice versa. It actually Konads okay too. Formula is perfectly in the middle. Not too thick or thin. Color builds very easily and is not chock full of brush stokes.

I'm so glad I finally got this and I think it was worth the wait. What polish do you keep seeing and loving but forget to buy?

That's it for now. I have much to do before work and the sugar cookies I bought last night are calling my name...
Have a wonderful day and hope you all enjoy a special snack today!


  1. You had me at "duo-chrome". I picked up this color recently too but haven't had a chance to wear it out just yet.

  2. This is a pretty one! glad you finally got it. I like Adore too - my mom has that one. I kept seeing Recycle and Rich & Famous and kept forgetting to order them - finally got them a few weeks ago :)

  3. Very pretty. My daughter was checking this one out the other day-should have got it!

  4. I love Tempest, it looks beautiful on you!
    Side note: A thin layer of tempest over Hot pink or Black is one sexy mani!

  5. This is really beautiful. I can't think of any polishes I haven't been picking up. :)

  6. How have I missed this color? I swear it's not at my Sally Beauty... lucky! :)


  7. For some reason I feel like I have this color. I'm starting to lose track, which is BAAAD! LOL!! I hope I do have it because that is absolutely gorgeous!

  8. I think I have this in my untried. I will have to give it a go!

  9. I really looove this color, own it too, but always having trouble with it after I've applied top coat. Will skip that next time. It's so pretty

  10. Oh NICE! I know for a fact I have this in my untrieds. Thank goodness. Love it swatched on you!

  11. Ohhhh purples are my love!
