Ki is Kool

Failure is not an option. *sigh* Yeah, tell that to my camera. No matter what I did, I could not get a good pic of Ki. According to the Zoya website, Ki is described as a complex multichromatic shade combining silver, purple, blue and green in a shimmery metallic finish. A unique shade for a truly fascinating nail look. They're right - it's unique and it's gorgeous! This was my first pick from my exchange package.

This is the best picture I could get of the multichrome effect - and of course it was in the bottle.

This is the only color I could get to show up with flash. I probably could've gotten some better ones outside without flash, but I wasn't patient enough for that.

This really is a beautiful color. Purple, blue, green, silver - this one has it all!! I am very happy with this purchase.

And while we're on the subject of polish...

A couple weeks ago, the BFF and I took a girl's afternoon and went to the mall. Where else would we go? LOL We stopped by Hot Topic to see what they had to offer. Of course I made a bee-line to the polish and look what I found!! I hate when companies don't name their polish. So, I'm gonna do it for them.

Poison Plum

This is *super* dark purple - the BFF didn't share my confidence that this was, in fact, dark, dark purple. In the pic you can see that the body of the polish does look black, but up around the rim of the bottle you can tell it's purple. I can not wait to use this one! Especially with accents using the next polish.

Super Bad

I love stars. And I love holo. As soon as I saw this I said OMGLookatthis and never put it down. LOL The little stars are SO holographic! It's a clear base with little tiny holo glitter particles. This has been pushed down to the bottom of my "un-tried" container because of my Zoya purchases, but I might just break it up a bit and do a little Poison Plum and Super Bad. But then again...4th of July is just around the corner and I might use Super Bad in a patriotic mani instead! Stay tuned. :D

OH!! My sister, Kristen, is the queen of deal finding. She can go anywhere, find something she likes and when she takes it to the register, it'll be on some sort of hidden super sale. She's good like that. She must've been with us on this shopping trip because I also found this:

It's GIR!!! My sis also loves Invader Zim, so it was rather fitting that I found this. The packaging is so cute, but that wasn't even the best part! Originally $5, this was in the clearance section for $1.98. But, wait! There's more! It was on Kristen hidden super sale for $0.98!! It's bright pink with a very slight shimmer. It says neon, but I don't know that I'd call it quite neon. could've been puke green and I would've gotten it because it's GIR! Apparently there is a Fluorescent green that goes with this same promotion, but all Hot Topic had was the pink. But, like I said, it wouldn't have mattered anyway. LOL

And speaking of the BFF...she happens to be the one and only Wendi from Makeup Zombie! She is hosting a giveaway to celebrate 100 followers!! Take a look at what she's giving away.

Head on over to Makeup Zombie, join in the fun and tell her Kitschy Suburbia sent you!!

Have a most awesome day, my dear Kitschies!! Thanks for stopping by.

Ooooooh, I want that Hot Topic stars polish! And the bottles are super cute too!

Jen said...

You are not alone, I couldn't get Ki to picture properly either so I didn't even bother posting it on my blog. Your picture turned out much better than mine!

Robyn said...

Oooh, I want that Hot Topic polish with the stars! The bottles are cute too!

Kimberly said...

Oooh, I like those Hot Topic polishes. I'm going to have to look for that Super Bad one. Did you name that one too? (I'd come up with polish names for free because I find it so fun.)

Where did you pick up the GIR?

I'm jealous that the two of you got to hang out together.

Megan Harmeyer said...

@Kimberly - I named them both. LOL It's fun to give names when companies can't be bothered. I got GIR at Hot Topic, too.

BLIX said...

Too bad I don't wear nail polish. If I did, I'd have to get some of these. Pretty!

Linda said...

You certainly did get a Kristen deal - LOL!

Makeup Zombie said...

Ki IS cool! Dayum. Now I'm second guessing getting Adina..haha Love the stars too...
