China Glaze Atantis and the Vagina Dentata


Hello everyone! Graduate school is still extremely stressful and my program is not at all what I was expecting, but I'm dealing with it. Nail polish helps! :)

Here is my latest NOTD, China Glaze Atlantis, 3 days in. I have some chips on the corners of my nails but nothing too major. This is 3 coats of color with 3 coats of topcoat.

[Edit]: China Glaze Atlantis is from the new China Glaze collection consisting of 50 glitters! You can purchase some of this collection (including Atlantis) at Sally Beauty Supply stores or online from e-tailers such as 8ty8Beauty, Head2ToeBeauty, and Victoria Nail Supply. Transdesign does not yet have the glitters but I would assume they'll be receiving them soon.

As usual, click the pics to see larger.



HOLY CRAP. Do you see this????



I think I'm in love here.

(With flash):


I'm particularly excited with glitter because it does tend to last longer than typical polish and it's pretty, so Atlantis really cheered me up during this tough week. I'm hoping to get some more money (student loans...ugh) soon so that I may take some of it (I'm bad, I know, but a girl's gotta live!) and buy some more fabulous China Glaze glitters!!

And here's the "Vagina Dentata," as I named it, which is a certain nail polish remover available at Target and recommended by the Nailboard girls over at MUA.





I have not yet tried it but I plan to tonight and will report back with my results asap. According to the MUA girls it removes glitter with ease, which will be amazing for me as I love to wear glitter but often don't because I dread the removal process (even using felt and acetone). Fingers crossed!

[Edit]: So, my "Vagina Dentata" nail polish remover proved to live up to it's hype!! All I had to do was stick each finger in one at a time, soak it for around 10 seconds, then rub it around on those spiky things, which felt like little massagers! Both hands were done in less than 10 minutes and my fingers aren't sore (like they would be if I had used felt). The acetone left my fingers a little dry but some cuticle oil and moisturizer fixed that up. So yay! If you like glitter, go get this remover!

Thanks for reading!

I had to read the title twice! That's exactly what I've been using for a long time now. I love it and it does make short work of glitter. I used to have the one with the sponge but the spong just rips after awhile. I bought my jars online. I didn't realise they were in Target. Now I know where to go when I need a new one. You really don't need a new one since you can reuse this jar. After I empty out the dirty remover I pop out the inside and wash it off. Pop it back in and refill and your good to go. Love Atlantis glittery beauty. Your nails look fantastic. Glad you finally got this jar of remover.

Atlantis is gorgeous! I can't wait for mine! (Being carted back from the US to Singapore via a friend of a friend...)

I want vagina dentata! The polish remover that is! - I've only seen the spongey ones over here in the UK. Oh and that glitter polish is gorgeous...

That cracked me up when I read "Vagina Dentata." Evil Angel calling it "Angry Vag," made me spit coffee. Thanks for the laugh, guys! Made me forget that I'm broke as a joke and can't find any of the ChG glitters at my Sally's.

I suspect there are going to be some very disappointed Googlers thanks to this post. LOL!
