Piggy Polish: Yacht-a Yachta-a

Piggy Polish Yacht-a Yachta-a (3 coats)

Happy Thursday! I can't believe how the week flew by. I will be leaving for Seattle on the 22nd, so I wanted to ask if anyone has any suggestions for things to see or do while there. I'm going for a science conference where I'll have to give an oral presentation (eek!!).
I happened to stop by Sally's Beauty Supply and they had the new China Glaze Vintage Vixen polishes (they were $4.99 apiece) as well as the new Finger Paints Fall 2010 Collection. The clearance selection was pretty picked over, but they still have random China Glaze and Orly polishes so you may want to stop by. No Orly Cosmic Fx polishes yet, but I did see them at Ulta last week if you really need any. I've seen several comparisons with this collection, and several of them look like exact dupes of other polishes. I know for sure one I will have to pick up is Space Cadet! 
Anyway, on to the nail of the day which is Piggy Polish Yacht-a Yachta-a. Umm....what the heck is up with the name? Several of the names are cute, but this one is just weird. I would have to say out of all the polishes I got, this is my least favorite. I know some of  you are going to completely disagree with me, but this is just a personal preference. It is a medium purple jelly, and since it is a jelly finish, it is pretty sheer. The picture shown is three coats, but it could have used one more for an opaque finish. If you're like me and want it to be opaque, you can always put a base coat of a flesh colored polish before adding this one. Overall, I really like the color, but I'm not a fan of the finish. The application of the polish was just fine, but again the formula was a bit thin. What do you guys think?

Ooh, yay Seattle! I do think that what you'll enjoy here depends largely on what you have available where you're from. I will say that our biggest tourist attraction, Pike Place Market, is MUCH better early on a weekday than at any time on a weekend. Also, it's a farmer's market, so keep in mind that it does close down around 6:00 - though of course the restaurants stay open later.

As far as polish and & nail accessories go, try the Westlake Mall in downtown. There's a Japanese dollar store in the basement called "Daiso" that sells polish and a great selection of nail art supplies (plus lots of interesting stuff of all sorts - Daiso is way more fun than Dollar Tree). There's also a Trade Secret down there that's closing, though the polish is probably pretty picked over by now.

Or, in the International District, you could try going to Uwajimaya, a large Japanese grocery store - there's a small beauty supply store inside that sells PA polish. The International District is also great for tons of yummy food from various Asian countries.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions!

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the polish!

Elise- THANK YOU! That is exactly the kind of information I was looking for. If there is anything else I can think of, I will definitely let you know. Also, if you think of anything else, feel free to contact me!
