NYX Girls Nail Polish Haul + Glittery Cheetah Nails

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been hauling lol. I wanted to share some of the NYX Girls Nail Polishes that I got from a local grocery store here in Hawaii (Don Quijote). I got these on sale (of course), the original price was $1.49 but I got them for $1.19. Not much of a difference but I saved some change nonetheless lol.

NYX Girls Nail Polishes
1. #118 in 'Second Skin'
2. #167 in 'Dreamy Glitter'
3. #115 in 'Milano'
4. #166 in 'Grand Royal'
5. #113 in 'Chocolate Taupe'
6. #105 in 'Algae'

Let me just say that I'm not much of a nail polish hoarder as I am a makeup hoarder. I don't always paint my nails and do anything fancy with them. Once in a while when I feel like playing around with them, I will. But I am not constantly changing up my tips or worrying about having naked nails. So I honestly don't like to shell out much for a nail polish. I only have a couple of OPI & Essie polishes which of course I got on sale. I just can't seem to justify paying 8 or 9 dollars for a bottle of nail paint so I usually like to snag polishes on sale if I spot some shades that are calling my name. I saw the one in Chocolate Taupe and immediately thought of it as being a dupe for Sephora by OPI's 'Metro Chic', which has been a very popular shade.

I had just dropped off my daughter to school this morning and since my son is spending some time at grandma's, I decided to play around with a couple of these polishes. For those who do not know, I absolutely love animal print! The cheetah print fabric that you see in all of my pictures is actually a top that I can't fit in at the moment due to being pregnant lol. Please excuse my dry cuticles. =T Oh and I used 3 coats of Chocolate Taupe.

Products Used:
1. Milani Nail Lacquer in 'Whitest White'
2. NYX Girls #166 in 'Grand Royal'
3. NYX Girls #113 in 'Chocolate Taupe'
4. L.A. Colors ArtDeco in 'Black'
5. Wet N' Wild Mega Last Quick Dry Ultra Gloss Top Coat (not pictured)

I would like to do a makeup tutorial but I can't decide on what look to do. Any ideas? Let me know.
