Polish-wise, I seem to be having a very good couple of days. Yesterday in Save-On, I once again couldn't resist checking the nail polish to see what they had, and I found one last bottle of Revlon Scandalous! Of course I snatched it up, being a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance and all. I also found one more bottle of Whimsical, so I picked that up too and I'll keep it for a contest or giveaway at some later date. Also, while my mom was out shopping with my sister, she called me saying that they were at the drugstore and she found some polishes from the OPI NYC Ballet Collection for half price! She picked up Don't Touch My Tutu! and Pirouette My Whistle. She hasn't come home yet, but I'll take pictures of the bottles and do swatches as soon as I can.
Scandalous is medium pink-toned-purple hex glitter and micro-glitter in a black jelly base. In the pictures I'm wearing 3 coats; I could have done with 2, but I was so crazy about the depth of the jelly that I couldn't resist adding another. Formula was great, and the glitter evenly distributed all by itself. 2 coats of Seche Vite.
|Macro shot. Mmmm jelly goodness.|
This was my original mani, but I didn't like the two designs together so I just re-painted the accent nail like all the others. For the accent nail I used loose glitter from GOSH in Amethyst Purple. The loose glitter looked great, but was such a pain to clean up. You can still see all the glitter bits stuck in my cuticles and under my nail. Grrr.
I hope you all have a great rest of your long-weekend, and I'll have some pictures of my new NYCB polishes ASAP! :)
