Tonight I dumped a bunch of L'Oreal HIP pigment in Intrepid into a bottle of clear polish, and this is what happened. I loooooove it! I bought a backup of this pigment for the express purpose of frankening with it, since it's currently 75% off at CVS.
Ok, y'all, I just started to paint my nails with China Glaze Mrs. Claus... and I stopped in the middle and removed it all. What a horribly, horribly ugly nail polish. I like red. I like glitter. But that was an abomination. It looked super cheap. Not typical China Glaze quality, and I don't think any number of coats would've made THAT opaque.
I think I finally found something I will not ever be posting on my blog unless I get really, really bored!
In other news, the hubs and I ventured out into the snowy wilds yesterday to get some stuff (mostly beer) at Publix. I got into a conversation with the cashier about nail polish and pointed her to my blog. She was totally one of us. I love meeting people who are as nuts about nail polish as I am. I feel vindicated! So, if you're reading this (and I hope you are!), hi Jessica!
1) So, I stand corrected! Those Jesse's Girl nail polishes I mentioned in my last post DO have names. The Charla/Halley's Comet/Catch Me In Your Net dupe is called Glee, and the Scrangie-esque one is called Confetti.
2) That Scrangie-esque polish looks nothing like Scrangie on the nails. It's super sheer -- took four coats -- but flashes between blue, purple, and pink. It's really lovely! Most of the time it looks like a metallic purple with blue shimmer. I apologize for the slew of indoor shots lately, but light sucks when I wake up and sucks when I get home. Maybe I'll get some decent swatching done this weekend.
Anywho, here is Jesse's Girl in Confetti:
3) Friday, January 7, my blog will be one year old! I'm still recovering from my Christmas spendstravaganzzzzza, so I don't have much to offer... but anyone who comments on this post by Sunday, January 9 at 9pm can win a bottle of Milani Gems. Yes, I have a spare bottle. And I figured that since it's dupISH to Lippmann Happy Birthday (which I do not even have ONE bottle of), it'd be appropriate to give it away for my blog birthday weekend. :) I may or may not add more stuff to the package. My last giveaway, with the flakies, ended up being quite large... :)
So anyway... comment with your email addy starting NOW! HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY TO ME!
