Yesterday I purchased (AKA my boyfriend purchased for me :]) this tiny beauty.I got it from WalMart and,as you can see,it's from a brand called Petites. I got the color Mystical,which is agorgeous purple! I am so in love with it!!! I actually had NO purple polish before this and I'm really glad I chose this one. It was only $1.50!
So in this first photo I wanted to show the size of the bottle which is pretty small.However,if it's a color you're not absolutely sure about or you don't tend to use an entire bottle of polish (as I'm sure most of us don't) the bottle size isn't a big deal. There is .25 fluid ounces of polish, which is half the polish the OPI bottle boasts.
This photo shows the size of the brush.Although I'm a huge fan of OPI's Pro Wide brush,I found this brush was really flexible,which allowed the hairs to fan out just enough to cover a good bit of the nail.The application was also pretty good.It was a bit streaky with the first coat,being not quite opaque but not quite sheer either.But with 2,there was only a teensy bit of VNL,so I did use 3 coats.
This picture is a little more true to color in real life than the first.And I went a little picture crazy... :]
And just in case you were wondering....I wanted to show you what I rub into my cuticles.I will let you in on a little secret...I don't know the FIRST THING about nail health.If I looked at a set of nails,I couldn't tell you a darn thing about their cuticles!So even in my ignorance,I figure I should at least try to keep my cuticles looking good.Anyhow,I use this Rosebud Salve.It smells fantastic and you can actually use it any place on your body that is dry.I usually use it only for cuticles and lips because I think it'd be too stick and oily to wear on my skin but I also live where it doesn't get too cold or too dry.This salve is available at Sephora for only $6!
Thanks so much for reading! Comment below and let me know what you think of these products or if you're considering trying them!

Here is my nail art for PHD's most recent challenge. I chose a dress similar to this design (I'll upload a photo of the dress as soon as I figure out how to). I used China Glaze "For Audrey" as a base, OPI "Fiercely Fiona" for the spots, and Wet n Wild "Black Creme" for the spots' outline. I'm not exactly a nail art pro or anything but I tried my best. Let me know what you think in the comments.
