Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

Can I first just say how much I heart you all?! I can't believe that there are over 500 followers on DizzyNails. This completely blows my mind and is humbling and exciting all at the same time. Thank you thank you!! We've come a long way, baby!

So, I finally did change my mani. This is Butter London Wallis, shown at three coats. I probably could have gotten away with two.

Wallis is a Nordstrom exclusive color available now.

It's a beautiful blackened olive shimmer with striking gold accents.

I do not think this flatters my skin tone in any way, shape, or form, yet I could not care less. I'm very pleased with Wallis. It makes me think of antique brass or something.

Those crazy caps are so huge and reflective. See my entire patio, pool, and the lake out back in the picture above?

This last picture was taken indoors, just to show any differences with color in the artificial lighting.

Sarah, if you are reading, here are some quick tips on how to wrap your tips when you have very short nubs! I apologize in advance because I do not have any demonstrative pictures for you. What I recommend it to carefully wrap your tips in at least the last coat of color as well as the top coat. You may not want to do all the layers (base and all the coats of polish) as it's hard to get much of anything on the ends when your nails are really short. Also, you are going to make at least a bit of mess - this is a given. Keep something handy for quick clean up. I like to use the Sephora nail polish corrector felt-tipped pen or just now I am getting into using a brush and acetone clean-up method with the ELF concealer brush. That way, when you splotch the polish onto your skin you can just tidy it up right away. Another tip that may help is to just be purposeful in how much polish you have on the brush when you go to wrap the tip. Try doing it with just what is left over from after you painted the main part of your nail. Then, hopefully there won't be so much on there that you are prone to getting as much on your skin.

Let me know if this is helpful at all. I will make a point to try and do a more thorough tutorial with pictures the next time I'm rocking short nubs. :)

That color is absolutely amazing! I can't imagine how distracted I'd be with that color on my nails haha

Thats a super pretty color!

Thank you so much. I'll try it out tomorrow when I do my mani after work and let you know how it goes. :)

Also, I'd like to mention that you have 505 followers using Blogger. Other sites like Bloglovin, which is where I follow you, wouldn't be included in that.

On Bloglovin you have 49 more followers, and I'm assuming you'd have more on the other sites. :)

Sarah - I guess I'm pretty clueless! :P Thanks for filling me in. That is even more humbling and exciting!! :D

Congrats on 500! And this color is just gorgeous! Gah I kind of want it but my wallet might kill me. :P

This is beautiful!

Love it! I saw this at Nordstrom the other day

I bought this and got in the mail a couple days ago but I haven't worn it yet. I know what I'll be putting on tomorrow now, though! Great pics, btw.

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.
