It is a commonly known fact about me that I am very impatient. Usually it takes a couple days to receive items in the mail after I order them...but sometimes it takes FOREVER!!! (at least it feels like it!) This is never due to the person sending it, but due to the USPS. For instance, it took 4 weeks for me to receive a package from a friend from Michigan (RIDICULOUS!!)... I have been expecting packages for the past 3 weeks...and only 2 came today, and they were the last ones shipped(shipped on Tuesday). I'm still waiting for another 3 which seem to have entered limbo at the post office somewhere.
ANYWAYS, today's packages included my RBLs from a recent swap and the Rescue Your Nails book from Amazon. I have already gone through the book and I highly recommend it!!! It's a great read on nail care and teaches do it yourself manicures/pedicures along with many other things. When she talks about autoclaves I just had to start laughing b/c of my experience with them (it's one of my least favorite lab chores)! Well, here are some pictures of the RBLs I got from my swap. Enjoy!
1.) Ani- A shimmery sheer nude color...with flash.
2.) Sweet Sixteen- creamy pink shimmer...with flash
3.) Grunge- shimmery taupe color...this is the one that is currently out of stock on the RBL website.
When I read about Grunge and saw pictures of it on various blogs, I was curious as to how similar it was to Orly-Country Club Khaki and Opi- You Don't Know Jacques! I couldn't find any good pictures that compared them, so I decided to do my own comparison.
The colors in question...(left to right) Orly- Country Club Khaki, RBL- Grunge, Opi- You Don't Know Jacques! (with flash)
left to right: Opi- YDKJ, RBL- Grunge, Orly- CCK without flash
Overall, RBL- Grunge and Orly Country Club Khaki are relatively similar in color. CCK is a little darker brown by a tad while Grunge is lighter with a tinge of silver micro-shimmer.
