Glitter bomb!

Wow 2nd day posting in a row!! It MUST be the sunshine! ^_^ Although it's back to minus temperatures over here (BOO) but the sun is still shining bright!

So I was wandering around Walmart (bad idea, I know!) when I casually wandered over to the cosmetics area and casually glanced around the nail polishes to see what's new out there. Not that I was planning on buying anything, of course, I was just browsing.

When lo and behold...I see glitter in all different colours and I was instantly drawn to the display!

"Sally Hansen Gem Crush" I read on the bottle. Well...don't they look mighty purty??

So I grab one that appealed to me the most because goodness knows I wanted to buy all of them, and I picked up Be-jeweled.

Be-jeweled has dense purple glitter with larger peachy-orange glitter throughout. I liked how the wide brush applied for me, I haven't tried the thinner brush but I think I might have a tougher time with it.

Well, enough talking...let's see some pics!

In full sunlight! 

Shot in the shade.

And yet another gratuitous hand shot! ^_~

GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS! 3 coats to full opacity for me. I also used Sally Hansen Insta-dry AND Seche Vite for top coats to smooth things out. Not too bad in terms of grittiness but enough to annoy me. Oh, and drying time was great! Pretty fast I would say.

The bottles have two different types of brushes and it it determined by the shape of the cap. If the cap is fat and rounded like mine, then the brush is wider. If the cap is curved in like this ) (, then the brush is thinner.

Definitely pick this one up when you see it. I am also wanting Lady Luck which has magenta glitter.

Hello holo!

Hello all!!! I'm sorry I've been so MIA all these months!! Wedding planning has been bananas!

I've been feeling so happy lately with all the sunshine that we've been experiencing! What an awesome March  it's been! So in honour of awesome sunshine...I busted out the holo!! 

Here's Nfu Oh 62...I know that it's considered as the "dud"or the boring one of the bunch. Here is a shot in the shade.

So boring, right??

Let's see the "dud" in its full sunshiney glory! 

BAM! Holo greatness!

Gratuitous hand shot!^_~

I did the "sandwich" method for this mani. 1 coat of Nfu Oh Aqua Base (which is amazeballs for these holos), 2 coats of 62, 1 coat of Seche Vite, then another coat of 62 to tops things off. My nails are freakishly good at holding on to a mani, but this method seems to work for me. I didn't even really need the last coat of 62, I just wanted to do it. Hee hee!

My cuticles are in an inexcusable state. So if you can find it in your hearts to forgive me...that would be great. =D
