Good afternoon, ladies. How's tricks? It is cold, cloudy and very Fallish, here. I am kind of loving it. :)
Today's nail look is something I am kind of loving, too. Yes, I realise it looks really familiar, yet it is different. I applied two coats of China Glaze Lubu Heels and topped it with a coat of Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure. At a glance, it looks like a typical HT over black mani. Nothing wrong with it, for certain. But it is different. The red glitter fires in bright light, showing through and around the flakies. And, in certain light and angles, actually fires the flakies red. I have never seen HT do this trick, before. And I am entranced. I keep looking at my nails, shifting them back and forth to watch the colours shift from green to gold, to bronze, to deep copper, to red. Then to see the sparks of red glitter fire through it all makes it all the more fun.
I topped this with Seche Vite for extra shine and to help all those coats dry.
I took over eighty photos of this manicure, trying desperately to capture the red in it's glory. I could see it in person but it was utterly camera shy. I still have eleven to show. I know... Yipes! Another photo dump! But I just couldn't narrow them down any further. So, suck it up and get ready to peruse the pics. :P
As always, they are double clickable. :)
*sigh* I am enjoying using this polish. I can't seem to resist hauling it out, every now and then and try it over yet another different colour. Problem is, one day it will run out. I am still kicking myself for not snapping both bottles up that day. I bought this one and a cafe au lait shade that made my fingers look like boiled lobsters. Dumb. Really, really dumb. Guess I will just have to get me some Nubar 2010. It seems to be similar enough.
Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great evening and may your polish never bubble.
