Street Racing .... 2 Fast 2 Furious!

Wow. Everyone is raving about Stroll but I think Street Racing should have the number one spot in this collection. China Glaze, you have outdone yourself with this one. This polish came out with the Retro Diva collection. My BFF Lindsay sent me some AWESOME polishes and this was one of them. I immediately did a pedicure with it and was blown away. WHAT a color this is. Not red... but not orange. The pic below makes it a bit more red than it is. I had no intention of making this my manicure as well (I had Dior Lemon Balm out for that), but when I saw how beautiful it was on my piggies I just had to!!

Pick this one up ASAP. I've never seen anything like it. While my collection isn't as extensive as some, it's pretty big.

Just discovered your blog and i love it! Great pics!

Since you seem to have great experience with nails and such i'd love your opinion...

1. Can you reccomend a few online retailers that have great prices/shipping fees and selection?

2. Can u reccomend a great basecoat/topcoat?

Keep posting your nail goodness :)

Thank you, Antonea!!

To answer your questions:
1. I love to shop at transdesign.com for OPI, Essie, and China Glaze. They also have some other great brands and EXCELLENT customer service. Shipping time is fabulous too. The shipping is high, but the prices are so low that you'll order a ton and it won't matter ;) I usually order around 6-8 polishes at a time and my shipping is always around $8. Not TOO bad!
I buy my Zoya's at www.zoya.com - if you follow them on Twitter they will give you some EXCELLENT deals. Twitter is an awesome resource for nail polish coupon codes lol I'll post them here on the blog from now on as well!!

2. For a basecoat I use Zoya Anchor Basecoat. It takes a few minutes to dry but my polishes don't chip as much when I use it. You should use it with every color nail polish, not just dark ones. I use Seche Vite DryFast Top Coat. With my 2 kids I need as fast drying as I can get lol It's nice because you can do regular things, but it will still be dentable for around 30 minutes or so.

Hope this helps!!! =)
