I'm doing something new. I posted on Facebook that I came up with a plan, and this is part of it. I have a...few (**clears throat**)...polishes that I have not worn yet, and they are sitting neglected and shuttered in a drawer right now. It is not a very nice way to treat these pretties, so I decided that on Saturday, I am going to pull out some of them, and show them off. My version of a personal "untrieds" challenge. Only glitters will be showcased here (along with an appropriate undie, of course).
**Just a disclaimer - if someone else out there is doing a 'Spotlight Saturday' (which with the number of blogs out there, the chances are good) I am in no way claiming the uniqueness of the idea. I'm sure they will be different to not cause any issues.**
So for my very FIRST Spotlight Saturday, I give you (drumroll.....):
Is it just me? Every time I see the name of that glitter, I don't think of yarn or sweaters. The Led Zeppelin song runs through my head. Yes, I know they are completely different, but it still happens. Anyway...sadly, I do not see this polish any longer in their store, which you can find <<here>>. There are a lot of polishes there though, and prices I believe are $8 for full size, and $4 for mini bottles. (There is also an etsy store <<here>>, but it says only the newest collections will be there. And FYI - the split was done pretty recently).
I really like the combination of that blue-leaning pink glitter and iridescent squares in that turquoise jelly. I don't think it is nearly opaque enough to build up on its own, but I haven't tried it. I generally don't like to wear more than 3 coats of polish. With the base and top coats, that's a lot on the nail. This is one coat of Gumdrop, with two coats (and some needed dabbing and placement) of Cashmere, plus topcoat.
I wasn't able to do any cleanup on this manicure. My cleanup brush that I have been using was in bad shape and went in the garbage...I HAD a backup, which now is suddenly gone. I have cats in the house, and long cylindrical things that roll and have soft things on the end are like a magnet to them. I still haven't found it yet, so until I can get out for some replacements (that will now have to be hidden), I have to be really good at polishing. I think I did good on this, if I do say so myself.
See you on Tuesday with Gini @ SassyPaints2012.
