Readers, I need your help!

Next weekend, I will be donning a Santa suit (actually a dress... a very *short* dress... with many accessories... my goal is to look like Christmas puked all over me), and going to my city's Santa pub crawl.

NATURALLY, I need to do my nails for the occasion.
NATURALLY, I want to use China Glaze's Party Hearty for this because, well, my occasions for using that particular polish are very limited.

So I found ten colors that I thought would be good base colors for layering with Party Hearty.
I know what MY favorite is.
My husband told me what HIS favorite is.
But I want to know which layering combination is YOUR favorite. Please excuse the messiness you may see in some pictures -- I did this really quickly. I assure you the actual mani won't be so messy. :)

Each of these shows three coats of Party Hearty over the base color.

Whichever one gets the most votes is the one I'll wear next weekend. :)

On my left hand, I used:
Sally Hansen Salon in Haute Chocolate (thumb)
Revlon Ruby Ribbon (pointer)
Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Whirlwind White (middle)
Orly Shine (ring)
Orly Liquid Vinyl (pinky)
Here is a full hand pic of my left hand:

On my right hand, I used:

China Glaze Phat Santa (pointer)
China Glaze Something Sweet (middle, and my personal fave)
China Glaze Millennium (ring)
Orly Meet Me Under the Mistletoe (pinky)

  4. I can't decide between the silver or the black. And I like the white too. Eesh. I guess the one I think shows the glitter the best is over black, and maybe use two coats?

  5. @Original_Wacky: This was actually three coats of Party Hearty over each color! I guess I should note that in the post.
