Hi guys. Hope everyone had a great weekend. My guy and I watched our niece yesterday and it was so fun! She is seriously the cutest thing ever, and she's such a great, happy baby. If you follow me on Instagram (glitter_n_unicorns - follow me!) you would have caught one of my Christmas gifts to her. You might also know I have lots of unicorn "toys", so when she came over, I took down some of my unicorn stuffies, and she went RIGHT to one of them! My guys brother said something along the lines of "oh great, another unicorn lover in the family", and it gave me a evil twinkle in my eye knowing its just a matter of time....he by the way took accidental took one of them home, WTF! lol
Here are my nails today. I didn't think I liked it at first, but I actually LOVE it! I'm wearing Jessica's Glitterati. As a base, I'm wearing Zoya's FeiFei which I chose cause the flash in the bottle of Glitterati was very similar.
After I got home, I realized this reminded me of something I already had. The smokey base reminds me of Kleancolor Chunky Black Holo, and the glitter reminds me of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Bluebell. I didn't realize how close to Chunky Holo Bluebell (which by the way, I've never worn....) this one is. I find the glitter in the Kleancolor is the same all the way through, so it flashes the same color all the time. But the Jessica seems to have different glitter that flashes different colors at the same time (does that make sense?). If you see in the above pic, the glitter looks gold and orange instead of just one color. You can also see in the bottle the two flashes of blue glitter.
My camera freaked out taking these pics.
This polish reminded me of dragons!
More green flash!
I REALLY wanted the blue flash that shows in the curves of the bottle! But alas, it was not meant to be! I believe this is from the Winter '12 collection, but have no idea. All I know is that there was another glitter next to this that was pretty awesome. One thing I will note about this polish is the smell. It's got a very strong polish smell which is actually similar to Kleancolors. I am not at all sensitive to polish smells, in fact I never smell polish when I apply it....I guess I'm use to it, but my guy pointed out how much this one smells. He can usually smell them sitting 6 feet from me.
BUT, this one had a great formula, it spread out easily and dried super quick. Wasn't gritty at all, I applied just one coat of topcoat and it is perfectly smooth. I will also note just ONE nail had shrinkage on only ONE side....weird I know (the middle finger, and you can kinda see the shrinkage on the left side). But I attribute the shrinkage to the 4 coats of polish I have here (two Zoya and two Jessica). But why the one finger? We will never know!
