Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 I finally got around to wearing OPI Metallic 4 Life recently.  I did a coat of Finger Paints Black Expressionism as my base, then a coat of Metallic 4 Life, two coats of Seche Vite, and finished with two coats of Essie Matte About You.
I know that sounds like a lot of coats and a lot of nonsense, but it was really relatively quick and easy.  I did it kind of late at night, too, and was able to go to bed pretty quick.  That, of course, is the beauty of Seche Vite.
The bummer-oosky of Seche Vite, though, is that at a day and a half of wear time my polish began to chip and lift.  I knew it would happen.
For being such a relatively simple glitter polish, I really really love this.  It just plain makes me happy.  Go figure.
Here is a picture of Georgia lounging around on her couch.  It cracks me up that her tail is between her legs!
I would take more pictures of my other dog, Varekai, but she is not nearly as pose-y as that George!

wow, I've never really loved this polish but here it's stunning and now I want it!lol it looks very cool mattified and maybe it's because you used a base color.
Georgia is so elegant and beautiful!!

I agree with the above post. I have this polish and never really liked it. I love it mattified!! What a great idea. Thank you for the post. I love your blog.

wow, what a beautiful glitter! looks even better matte :)

and I love your dog! She's so big :o! We've always had small dogs in my family (our first pet was a Poodle, current one is a Pom... I want a Corgi in the future lol) but I have always wanted a big dog to cuddle with :) What breed is yours? I've never seen one quite like her here.

Nailderella - thank you! I was surprised to instantly like it so much!

Christina Marie - I'm glad to have helped. I hope you can love it more now!

Estivalia - thank you so much! She is a borzoi (they used to be called russian wolfhounds years ago). They are a large breed, yes, and she is a very stately and majestic looking girl. :) She only weighs 75 pounds, give or take, but looks much bigger since she's so long, tall, and skinny! My other borzoi is smaller - a runt I'm sure. Still stunning, though. Corgis are so cute! I like little dogs but haven't owned one (we had a scottie when I was a little kid).

That is a beautiful doggie! I love borzois!

Oh, and your metallic for life nails are very hip.

Looks fab mattified!!

very very very pretty *_____*


I'd like you send you an email Lauren, but I can't seem to find your email address (sorry, it's early here so I may be being blind)!?

Anna - if you look on the right side bar you should see a picture of an eyeball (it's mine). If you click on it, it will take you to a page and there is a place about contacting me on the left. That should do it. If not, let me know! <3

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.
