Every once in a while I come across the L.A. Colors nail polish at CVS. It's hit or miss on when and where they will carry them, but a couple of years ago I stumbled across a set of four Color Craze Metallic polishes. This is one of them. None of the colors have a name, so I have dubbed this one "purple". Creative, I know.
This purple is a deep blue/purple jelly base with purple iridescent glitter. When I look hard at the polish, especially in the bottle, I get bits of pink, so there may be a pink or magenta glitter in there as well. Here is a closeup of the bottle so you can see the color - this is about as true-to-life as I could get.
Three coats below and I got a really nice coverage. At first I thought it was going to be difficult to get the full opacity, but once I started the second application, it was smooth sailing. In the sun the sparkle really comes through, otherwise it is a just a really pretty deep purple. I would exactly call this metallic. I consider metallic to me more of a foil effect, but this is pretty none the less.
Also, my very week and last minute attempt at a stamping on my ringer finger. Not too bad, but I really need to sit down and figure this whole Konad thing out. I bought one for my sister and myself for Christmas. She has used it so much that she is an expert now, so I need to go get a tutorial from her!
Happy Monday to everyone. Here's to this week being a great week!
