Catch up post including Rescue Beauty Lounge Halcyon

So I have been busy and haven't gotten around to posting my purchases and nail mail or last weekends mani. So I decided while I have a few minutes before work to just put it all in one post! I hope any mothers reading had a wonderful Mothers Day, I was pretty spoiled :)

I'm putting this all under a cut so click here!

First up I have my first Color Club polishes. I have a bit of a problem with liking to go into our BX (military store pretty much like Walmart or Target without food) and just wander around and look. I was in there I think last Monday, didn't really see anything, but had to go back in on Tuesday for something. I always go to the makeup/nail polish section first, and I was shocked to see a display of Color Club hiding above all the L Oreal make up that wasn't there the day before! We have never had Color Club before, so I hope this is something that is permanent (I want the Take Wing collection!). We had in stock the Blossoming Collection, which I bought all of:

In no order: Blushing Rose, Sweetpea, Lavendarling, Blue-Ming, Hydrangea Kiss, Diamond Drops
Then we have Mothers Day. My daughter knows me so well, I got 12 new polishes and a new top coat! I finally own my first Orly and Nubar, and couldn't be happier so far!

In no order: Flirty, Fresh, Frisky, Frolic

In no order: Honeysuckle, Pink Lily, Purple aster, Yellow Primrose, Baby Sprout, White Peony, Earthen, Blue Hydrangea
I have the green Orly on my toes right now and love it!

Now for the nail mail I got yesterday, my order from Whimsical Ideas by Pam! If you haven't heard of her, you NEED to check her out on Facebook: Whimsical Ideas by Pam. I love and need all of her polishes, so it was EXTREMELY hard to just narrow down what I wanted first to just 5. I am more than happy with the ones I finally did choose, and want to say that her customer service is amazing. There was a slight issue with my address and she was very helpful in getting it sorted and keeping in contact with what was going on. I am forever grateful and just hope it wasn't too much of a problem for her, so I can order more in the future! Here is what I got:

Saturday Morning Cartoons, Seuss, Kitty Glitter, Kismets Pajamas, Peanut Butter and Jelly
 Look at these colors, I'm in love!

And now for last weekends mani. I chose to wear RBL Halcyon. I have to say, from all I heard about their amazing formula, I was disappointed. The first coat was extremely thin and streaky, but then the second coat was gloopy and thick and pooled up at the tips. I let those both dry for a good few minutes and then did a third coat followed immediately by a coat of Seche Vite and it looked wonderful them. I hate to complain about formula and application, because I am still really not good at application, so I'm never sure if it was just me or the actual formula. But that was my experience whatever the cause was. I do love the color though, I was sad to have to remove it for work Monday :( pictures are inside with overhead lights on.
