Do I even need to say anything?! I will anyway- even though I think the pictures speak for themselves lol. My Mom gave me some early Easter presents, including this Gosh Holographic polish which makes me feel bad after knowing how much she spent! lol If you ever checked out this polish on Ebay, you will know what I am talking about. But nonetheless, my Mom has given me the best polishes in my collection =)
I was having some trouble with this polish at first. I tried it out on my mom's nails that were already prepped with a base coat and the polish was like slipping and moving around on her nails. It was kinda weird. Then I tried to apply this over Sally Hansen's "Pure Chrome" and it worked a lot better over this polish. Apparently you are supposed to use this polish with a special base coat, so maybe that makes all the difference. The one thing I didn't like about this polish is you only get that awesome rainbow effect in certain lighting and angles. I got the best rainbow effect with flash lighting and LED lighting & in some lighting it looked like a regular silver polish. (I'm not sure if that was due to my base color though) I am going to play with this polish some and see what works and what doesn't, but either way, it is still gorgeous and I would guard this polish with my life! lol
Next up are these beautiful Deborah Lippmann polishes that my Mom also got me! (Bless her dear heart! lol) The blue one is "Across The Universe" and the red one is "Ruby Red Slippers." After seeing these polishes in person, I think this is going to be that brand that I am going to collect and make a special little spot for in my nail polish stash. =) They are just soo pretty I am afraid to even paint my nails with them because I don't want to waste any! lol I love the multiple glitter shapes and colors in these polishes, it really gives them this multi-dimensional effect that is so unique. Here is a close up so you can see what I am talking about..
I feel like my life is more complete with these polishes. lol It will be even more complete when I have the new BM plates too! =)
This week I will have more swatches & a review, a picture tutorial for my spring flowers nail design, and a really pretty pedicure that I will have to do more than once!
