Enough with the sentimentality. On to the pics & things. Nail stuff first:
I realized yesterday that in my enthusiasm to show you the wonderful bling-ness of holos, I have been neglecting how cool they look when they're NOT in the spotlight. As yesterday was uniformly dreary, it presented the perfect opportunity to remedy the situation. Also note that I did this mani Saturday night, and it's still looking gorgeous after several days of wear - and I type pretty much all day at work, which is one of the worst (& one of the most unavoidable) things we all subject our nails to. So here's one more pic of He's Going in Circles:
Now, for my post #100 NOTD, I have a very special polish. Brooke sent me this polish back when I was just getting started, and I've been saving it up for my nails to be worthy LOL. I also thought it would look really cool as a background for a full nail koni, but after I had it on, I couldn't bear to cover it up at all. Maybelline Mirror Image:
GORGEOUS, right? Shiniest thing by far I've ever had on my nails. This is without a top coat, since I'd read top coat can dull the finish ... I tested on my right hand thumb & I have to agree, it kind of makes it more shiny vs. reflective if that makes sense.
Another gorgeous color, one I could certainly rock with some Konad, is China Glaze V, my mom's current mani. It's really kind of coral or dark peach, but I'm tagging it under orange. If I had a tag for every gradation of color, it would make an already long tag list twice as bad LOL. As you can see, this color comes out a little darker on the nail than in the bottle, but I still like it & so does she:
I've got to end this super-sized hundredth post with a little quiz that's just too perfect. I found it over at Meredith's Blog:
|Your Nail Polish Color is Purple|
How you're unique: You are artistic and expressive
Why your style rocks: You pay special attention to color and fabrics
What this color says about you: "I'm creative and know how to take care of myself"
This test is spot on (although I'd have to say their pic of purple polish is NOT LOL) - I'd love to know what color you are if you take the quiz & if you agree with what it says! =) I am more likely to buy a purple polish than any other color.
So, here's to another hundred posts! And as always, thanks for reading =)
