Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 Here I have started with two coats of Zoya Noel.
 Noel applied well and dried relatively fast.
 Next, I added a coat of OPI Gone Gonzo!  It's my first time wearing one of my Muppets polishes.  Hooray!
 My friend at work, Megan, helped me to get the Muppets polishes.  It was quite the fiasco, too!  Thanks SO MUCH Megan!  :)
What's not to love about  blue glittery goodness?  This mani does remind me a bit of this one, from around a year ago.  Don't ya think?
I have to say that I am one happy glittery gal this year.  There are just so many ridicumazing (yeah, I just tried to make a new word there) glitter polishes available!!  Long live the glittah!!

On the business end, I have decided to accept an invitation to join the BlogHer network.  You may have noticed the new advertising.  I hope that this will be a move in the right direction for me and I do want to again thank all of you, my dear readers, for even making this a possibility!  I am ever grateful to each of you for coming to DizzyNails and supporting my passion and hard work.  Thanks a million!!

 I've been wearing this mani since Thanksgiving.  I hope that everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving Day, for those that observe it.  I enjoyed time with close family and super excellent and most delicious food!  Here I started with one coat of Cult Nails Time Traveler, seen in the bottle above and below.
 Time Traveler is wonderful!  Just be careful because clean up is not easy on this one.  It's uber pigmented and wants to stain everything it touches.
 Then I added two coats of Clairvoyant, the polish formerly known as (and the name I much prefer,) Unicorn Puke!
 What I failed to do in taking these hurried pictures before leaving the house for Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday is really capture that gorgeous yellowy-green ethereal glow that it takes on at just the right angles.
This is entirely magical.  My mother said that it's her favorite mani of all time!  I think that discredits quite a few awesome ones, but hey, I'll let her be.  Also, this slightly reminds me of a kamikaze flakie layering experiment I did quite a long time ago over a dark blue.  I used three or four different Nfu-Oh flakies and the result was somewhat similar!  They both remind me a lot of really cool, abstract stained glass.  And using Unicorn Puke...Clairvoyant...whichever, is much easier than many different separate polishes to get the same awesome result!

It also must be noted that I'm getting really good wear out of this mani.  I just put on a refresher top coat today (which I rarely ever use) because one corner started lifting a bit, but other than that, it looks perfect after three plus days.  Hooray!

 Today I started my mani with two coats of Rescue Beauty Lounge Fortissimo.
 It's a really lovely dark brown with a hint of gray coolness to it.
 Fortissimo reminds me of delicious, creamy CHOCOLATE!
 I don't use my RBLs too often, but whenever I do I am reminded of how terrific the formula and application is.  I like the smaller brush, too.
 Here I've added a coat of Sephora by OPI Don't be Eggnog-ious.
 I was playing with the light in these pictures.
 Don't be Eggnog-ious is a monotone orange/copper glitter with large hexograms and smallish - well, I don't what they are.  I think they are squares, but I can't tell for sure!
 The glitter spread itself pretty well, I have to say.
 I did a little smooshing things around to try and get the glitters to look as even as possible, but not too much.
 And I see that there is a rather giant clump of hexograms on my ring finger...ha!  Oh well.
 It looks fine, of course, in person.  :)
 What do you think of this glitter and the other ones from Sephora by OPI for the holidays?
I really love them.  The red and purple are so stunning, as well.  I confess that this feels a little "simple" after so many wonderful Lynnderella glitter polishes.  But simple can be good, too!

 Check it out!
 This is one coat of Ozotic Pro 507 shown over black.
 It's so glowly, metallic, gorgeous!
 It's mainly an electric, hot, chartreuse green.
 It also leans to a yellow gold, lush green, almost blue-green, and then that rusty bronze that I'm really loving!
 I had to be careful with my application as it could easily be filled with brush strokes.
 It's a fun look and these nails definitely scream out for attention!
Better than Peridot?  You decide.  It's louder, that's for sure!

 This is two coats of Hits Dionisio.
 The above pictures are under clouds.  It was raining out!
 And here I found a break in the clouds.
 These pictures are so much less awesome than what I want.
 The holo just doesn't want to be photographed!
 Sorry for the lameness here.  Also, I used Seche Vite as a top coat (because I had read somewhere that it did not dull the holo effect).  I'm wondering if it is in fact giving me trouble.
 The formula and application were a little tricky for me.  The polish is a little thick and the brush has uneven ends, which made it hard for me to paint close enough to my cuticles.
I do forgive it, though, because it is so beautiful!  It reminds me of holo China Glaze Grape Pop and also Grape Juice!

 I'm calling this my first Christmas mani of the year!
 I started with two coats of NYX Girls Alaskan Wild, which is what you are seeing here.
 It's one of those jelly-like cremes, or squishy cremes, or whatever you want to call them.
 The color is beautiful and the application was easy.
 Then I added a coat of Lynnderella's Funny Money.
 I just received my latest order last night and it definitely felt like Christmas opening that package!!
 I used the same method as with my previous Mercurial mani for my top coating:  Gelous, Cult Nails' top coat, and Seche Vite.
 Funny Money is rich with green, black, and little bursts of color (red, purple, blue, and gold).
 I debated my base color long and hard, as usual, because while I wanted to use black, I also did not want the glorious black glitters to get lost in the mix!
 I'm pretty happy with the end result.  It's majorly green, yet majorly gorgeous.
 Funny Money is made with bergamot oil.  So far I have detected a very slight, delicate scent.  Then again, with all the top coats, I don't expect to be smelling much bergamot.  (Right at this moment all I can smell is the eucalyptus oil I have on my cuticles!)
It's unintentionally, yet marvelously reminiscent of a beautiful Christmas tree, don't you think?  If you haven't heard of Lynnderella polishes, you can learn more at her blog here.

This Is Me!

My photo
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.
