Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

This is my Gamma mani. I used two coats of Illamasqua Gamma and then one coat of CND Effects Sapphire Sparkle.

Gamma is a bold neon orange - however, it doesn't dry matte like most neons.

I can't say that my pictures accurately portray the color, but it is close. It looks more neon and less pumpkin in real life, if that makes sense.

The CND sparkle effect is pretty cool and also did not get accurately portrayed here, either! It's got a blue/pink flash.

The funny thing is that I fully intended to put a purple sparkle over Gamma, thinking that that would look really cool. I was rummaging around in my clear-ish sparkly-glittery drawer looking for one, came upon Sapphire Sparkle, and decided it looked pretty good (perhaps thinking that the combination of the pink and blue looked purple!).

After I put it on, I kind of thought, "Gee, I wish it was actually purple!" But, nonetheless, it looks pretty cool and somewhat purple.

Also, I want to say that Gamma does not really flatter my skin tone one bit. But that has never stopped me from wearing a polish before in my life. :)

There certainly could be worse choices and I think it was a fun change of pace.

Do you like to wear obnoxious oranges? Once in a while the mood strikes me, but overall I don't tend to reach for them as much.

A coworker of mine tried this on and she has golden tan skin. I gotta tell you it looked so stunning on her!

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
