A new cut, a new coat and new polish

So I came home for the long weekend from school to spend time with my family. On sunday my wonderful mom took me for a hair cut and to buy me a new winter coat. I go to hair cuttery, because it's cheap and you don't have to have an appointment. So we were waiting in line to pay, and I see that they were selling the shatter polishes from OPI in the blues and red.



Of course my wonderful mom sees me eyeing the blue shatter, and she buys it for me because she's that cool. So here are my swatches of the turquoise shatter over NYC white polish. It looks great but the mani instantly started to chip! I blame it on the bad quality white polish. So I can wear this combo more often I'm looking for a better quality white polish. Any suggestions?

I was trying to get close enough so you could see the shimmer but no such luck, but it's soo pretty! 
The reason I love this shatter look it because the turquoise shatter has this beautiful shine to it, and looks great over other polishes too. In this photo I wore it over Mermaid Tears.
I'm wearing OPI's silver shatter on the other fingers. 


The reasons I like shatters so much is because it makes a chipped manicure last a few more days before I have to change the polish. I just paint on the shatter polish, and no one notices or can see that my nail polish was chipped!

My wonderful mom also bought me this wonderful winter coat from burlington coat factory. I love that store, if you look hard enough you find a lot of brand names for steals. Speaking of steals I was able to get a $350 guess coat for $100. Now that is a steal!! Here are is a photo of me modeling this lovely coat, it was just too HOT in my dorm to try and model the coat for you guys. I think I love the most about my coat is that it can be dress when I need it too. It's also very stylish! I'm so in love with my winter coat!! I can't wait to start wearing it!

What are your favorite places to buy cheap designer clothes? Any suggestions on a better quality white polish? Do you guys like the shatter craze or are you over it?
