New Nail Colors from Hot Topic
Aren't these the best - bad ass, punk rocker nail polish bottles? I jus luv 'em. They speak death by lacquer! Every few months or so when I visit the dreadful mall, Hot Topic is one of the few stores I always swing by. It must be my inner punk rockstar screaming to come out.
Their nail polish selection always puts a smile on my face offering - bold, bright and very unique colors. And, just as I was walking in yesterday, the SA was placing out three new shades, yippee!
So, Hot Topic don't really have official nail polish names like OPI or China Glaze. Actually, it's not even printed on the bottles anywhere only on the hard copy receipt.
Gray Muted ($2.99) has more distinct gray undertones in real life. In fact, Saturday, China Glaze's Recyle was my NOTD and under their artificial lighting, I really thought it was an close Recycle dupe. But, nope - come to find out it's complete different in a good way, of course.
Pastel Purple ($2.99), a lilac purple iridescent and Pastel Pink ($2.99), a "pepto bismol" pink iridescent nail polish. Both these pastels have an iridescent base like other Hot Topic shades.
Here's some other Hot Topic shades I've had in my collection for a while. Silver Glitter is a nice silver that's a mix of a foil, metallic and shimmer all in one.
As far as Hot Topic's nail polish quality - well, it's so-so. Some finishes are perfect and others seem to have thicker consistencies. But, no worries. Just a quick fix with a few drops of nail polish thinner.

I love my Hot Topic Polishes. They're a good price for when I want oddball colors that I won't wear all the time. Except for the Purple glitter, I actually wear that one pretty often. I'm going to the mall tonight, and I think I have to have Recycle. It's the first grey shade that I've seen that has a shot in hell of looking good next to my brown skin.
