Right now, that obsession has been nail polish! I've always liked polish, mostly because I love anything with COLOR, and even more so GLITTER! My only trouble was just that: polish always seemed like more trouble than it was worth. That all changed about a month ago, when I stumbled across my first nail blog (Scrangie, I'm lookin' at you!) All those gorgeous swatches, and I was hooked! So, here I am, back at my own blog, and I was inspired to update it, mostly so that I could post my own blingy, beauteous swatches.
Enter the painted Lady fingers contest, at http://paintedladyfingers.blogspot.com/2009/12/ladies-choice-of-diamonds-contest.html, and how could I not update my blog? Since she's hosting a contest to give away Diamond nail polishes, and I haven't tried them yet, it seemed like perfect timing. Thanks for the little push I needed, Ms. fingers! :)
No more rambling today. On to some pics!
Maybelline Salon Expert Lavish Sable. One of the best things ever found in a Big Lots for $1! Love this polish - it's a rich, burgundy/cognac/mahogany type of color that never looks black. Lavish, indeed. For some reason, I just want a subtle black woodgrain Konad for this one. This is 2 coats with topcoat, no major application issues (other than my usual sloppiness), taken under a full spectrum lamp. Seems color accurate on my monitor.
Thanks for reading!
