Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 I have too many pictures.  Consider yourselves warned!  :)
 This is two coats of Revlon ColorStay Rain Forest.  No top coat.
 Application wasn't great - I don't love the brush and the formula was a little thick.
 I forgive it, though, because it's so freaking gorgeous!
 Check out all the yummy glass-flecked shimmah.
 How could you not love this?
 I found it at CVS with other new ColorStay polishes.  I was lucky enough to get them buy one get one half off, too.
 This was my Christmas mani, so I added some gold glitter to pep it up.
 I used one coat of Inglot 207 over top.
 I put a coat of Revlon's ColorStay top coat over it all, and then a coat of the new Sally Hansen Diamond Flash.
 The Diamond Flash dries to the touch pretty quickly, but does seem to take a while to completely dry on me (longer than I like).  I also got a few bubbles, which is never good!
 I will say that once everything was completely and totally dry, it was rock solid!
 I have to thank my online nail polish buddies for helping me come up with this combination.  I was feeling overwhelmed with choices, and they recommended this one. 
 Thank you!  I loved it!
 What did you wear for Christmas?  I have to say that I'm particularly fond of my pedicure combo - it's Zoya Ivanka topped with Diamond Cosmetics Chunky Red Glitter.  It's so festive and reminds me of elves.  :D
Thanks for looking!  This will officially be the end of the Christmas manis.  I just took this one off and changed it about an hour ago.

That polish is SO gorgeous, holy crap. I think I need to buy it ASAP.
Would you mind elaborating more on what the brush issues were?

That is a gorgeous green, and a great shine for not having a top coat. Me want.

That's a really nice green! And I love it with the gold on top!

florence - it's definitely worth it! I just felt that the quality of the brush could have been better. It wasn't horrible or anything, just a little bushy and the bristles weren't cut perfectly on the ends, making it slightly challenging to maneuver around the cuticles. I hope this helps some! :)

Anita - isn't it great? It's so shiny and smooth on its own!

Lindsey R - thank you!

Oh, I love that green!!!

Big help! Thanks a lot Lauren! I wound up buying Rain Forest this weekend & I'm itching to wear it. That green is droolworthy.

I am so super happy that I nabbed Rain Forest! It's gorgeous! I was super bummed when I saw that brush though. What were they thinking? It's like a mini version of those CSM paddle brushes, urgh. I don't know how I feel about the new bottle either. But the polish is gorgeous and that's what counts the most! :) I love how you layered it! Green and gold, so beautiful! <3

amazing manicure and nail polishes!!!

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.
