ChG Watermelon Rind

 I am trying to wear some polish's that have been living in the back of my Deez-elmer..... China Glaze Watermelon Rind is a lovely dark green jelly with silver and some blue glass flecks. This needs 3 coats or more to be opaque, so I layered it over Icing Manic Monday, a dark green that is usually opaque in 2 coats.

Glitter Bomb

1 coat of Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac with un-named ( but awesome ) Icing polish's and Wet n Wild Party of Five Glitters. I love Lacey Lilac, it is the perfect pastel purple creme - and I can usually use just one coat for perfect coverage. I added 1 coat of a multi-colored Icing polish, then one coat of a lovely blue and silver glitter, then 2 coats of the WnW Party of Five Glitters.

The purple seems like an odd choice as a base for this multi-coloured glitter bomb, but it works! I kept this on my nails for 2 full days. I am wearing artificial nails here, but removal on my pinky - which is my REAL nail - wasnt that bad.

Layering with Wet n' Wild The Gold and the Beautiful

This is going to be a quick post which is funny because the last time I wore Sally Hansen Bronze Ablaze it was a quickie post, too!

Butter London's Wallice was first brought to my attention when Nouveau Cheap ( lots of virtual huggs sent to you right now ) did a fablous job of duping it with Sally Hansen Bronze Ablaze and Sinful Colours All About You. Instead of using Sinful Colors All bout You I layered Wet n Wild The Gold and The Beautiful over Bronze Ablaze -  these photos do not do this layering justice.

 ( Ninja Edit - holy cow! Butter London polish's are $19 bucks here!!!!! )

Hard Candy Blue Foil

 I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Years Eve, I stayed home, ate cheese Nacho's and watched Tosh O. - Fun times.

 I have been wearing this for 3 days now, 2 coats of Naturistic's Super Chrome Blue Spark, and 3 coats of Hard Candy Blue Foil. I didn't think these had names, but Scrangie called this Blue Foil - so I guess that's the name. This was a sheer blue jelly with lovely flakes that looks nice on it's own, but i layered it over a very similar base polish.

I used a matte top coat, that ended up drying to a satin finish instead of matte. The brush on this mini sucked wasn't that great, combined with the tiny brush handle, poor lighting and me standing instead of sitting I had a difficult time painting my nails....... I cant wait to have my NP room all sorted out so I can get back to normal.

Also, remember my mani from last year ( lol ) I found a comparable polish in my stash, Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Co-Co a Go-Go. I would say that the Sally Hansen polish is the boring, plain cousin to this fabulous brown shimmery number.  I stopped in at Shoppers Drug Mart & Walmart to see if any of these polish sets were on sale but both stores were CLEANED OUT  of any Christmas-type gift sets
