Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

 Oo.  Hey.  Sorry for the quick 'n nasty pictures here.  This is Color Club Halo Hues Beyond.
 I only used two coats here.  No base or top coat!  And it wore very nicely for about five days!!
 While it's not super holo or gorgeous in indirect light, it's still quite nice.  I love how quick and easy these are.  I wore Cherubic on a visit to see family, which made for a very easy mani change while away from home.  They apply great, dry quick, and last well.  Yay for Halo Hues!!!!
 Now this is my first time wearing a Jin Soon nail polish.  This is two coats of Azurite (with base and top coat).  It's a lovely deep blue with a relatively subtle holo effect.
 It's gorgeous!  I love it!
 This one didn't wear too great on me - I forget why.  I've been doing too much experimenting lately with various new-to-me top coats and even bases.  I think I just got some tip wear (bordering on a chip) that annoyed me, so I changed after a couple of days (that's not uncommon for me with very dark, saturated colors).

I also got Obsidian from the same collection.  It's a multi-colored sparkly black polish.  I'll be excited to try that one soon!  

Sorry I've been so slow with my posts.  I am really going to try to pick up the pace a bit.

 Here is my first mani using an Emily de Molly glitter polish!  It's called Super Vixen.
 I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls for underwear here, then added a coat of Super Vixen.  The glitters were surprisingly easy to work with.  I used mostly painting motions with some dabbing.  I suppose I could have got more large circle glitters if I had gone fishing for them.
 I'm still really happy with how it turned out!  Also, I used two coats of Gelous topped with Butter London top coat after all the polish.
For whatever reason, this mani chipped for me at the end of about 24 hours, in a chip-prone spot for me.  I would have enjoyed wearing it for longer than that, I'm quite sure!!

 I wore this fabulous and most sparkly manicure for about a week!
 I started with two coats of Orly Luxe, then added just a coat of Lippmann Glitter And Be Gay.
 I needed two coats of Gelous and then used my Sephora X top coat over everything.
 I am very pleased with this and I think Glitter And Be Gay is going to be really rad over lots of polishes!  The base is slightly tinted yellow, though, so you'll want to take that into consideration for layering.
 And if you are wondering, like I was, about the small glitters that look really dark, almost black, then I am here to tell you that they are in fact blue.  They just look black at certain angles.
 I think it might be a darker blue than the blue used for the larger hexes.
Also, if you haven't taken the time to fully drool over the holographic rainbow-y awesomeness of the bottle (see bottle just above), then please feel free to look over the entire post yet again!  I'm most fond of the third picture and then this one right above.  :)

For a chunky glitter, Glitter And Be Gay applied very easily.  I was careful and cautious, but the glitters dispersed themselves really evenly.  I did use occasional dabbing motions, but by and large it was painting.

 I've been having weird luck with my manis lately - some lasting a good, long time and others chipping within a day.  Here are two of the unlucky ones!  This is Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy.  I only needed two coats of polish, and it applied very nicely.  I did, however, use two coats of Gelous over top, plus top coat!
 It was super smooth and shiny.  I had a little bit of tip shrink (which annoys me to no end), but it was hardly noticeable in person.  I would definitely like to wear this again, and hopefully for more than a day.
 This is one coat of Rescue Beauty Lounge Dead Calm with one coat of  Rainbow Honey Mt. Moon over top.
 Dead Calm applied very nicely, but was a bugger to clean up since it stains and clings to the skin so much.
 Mt. Moon has a really lovely duochrome shift from blue to purple.  I don't think my pictures here captured it all that well.
 With the random flakey white bits, it was almost a galaxy nail type of look!
I was also sad that this one didn't last well on me.  Beautiful, but short-lived.

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.
