Why hasn't the world ended?

Seriously, I'm wearing a RED for cryin' out loud! (hi sweet Crumpet, made ya smile!) I took a chance on the return of Ninja Polish (now Polish Ninja) and bought a holo grab bag. Naturally there'd be nothing that I would LOVE in it, but the Jade Magia was OK (pretty black holo with a gold shimmer) I have never tried a Dance Legend (Russian brand) so I decided to live large and applied two coats of Optical Illusion with accent nails of the glorious Glitter Daze holo/multichrome flakie Forbidden Fairy Dust. The holo is a beautiful strong linear and the flakies have the same rainbow shimmer. It's OK for a Saturday. :)

Happy Happy YELLOW Mani!

Love this combo- the creamy Mustard Barry M with an accent of Lynnderella She Changed Her Spots- holographic, matte, satin and metallic dots in assorted shades of leopard. Clear base with warm golden sparks and tan micro glitter. My happy place.... :)

Throw Back Glitter Topper FUUUUUUUDGE!!! by Darling Diva

I can't find where this is available any longer, but I drag this out every Christmas season, it's a delightful mash of copper and gold glitters of all sizes along with some bright shards and squares as well as hexes of bright colors. A gorgeous mix that works over a couple Zoya neutrals from the second set. Love this combo.

Aptly Named Smitten Polish

Surely this isn't original, but I've been bitten by Smitten. From the brilliant  sky Out of the Blue, to the nearly perfect red Nose so Bright, to my new fave (that's right, take a back seat Lizard Belly) Between the Baubles, these are the best intro to a brand one could hope for. Easy application, great brush, but most of all, amazing colors. After almost five years and five thousand polishes or so, it takes a lot to wow me, but I've been WOW'd! These are going to get a ton of wear this holiday, might even need a couple back ups. Run, don't walk, to Buy here!

Poshe over- it dulled the red a bit, I just added another coat over the topcoat.
Nose so Bright top, aEngland Perceval bottom

Sunlight- see the red missing the holo- before another coat added

Ottlite and another layer of red over topcoat

and the holo is back!
