Kay, done whoring out my giveaway, focus on polish. Specifically Lacquistry's Devil's Dandruff. When I looked at her Etsy shop, this was the one I knew I had to have. In fact, I already know I'm going to wear this as a full mani for my choir concert on Saturday:] It's festive and interesting enough to keep me occupied while staring at my nails during the lulls in the concert haha. I was inspired to find a red that I liked after seeing stuff i (s)watched's swatches of OPI Wocka Wocka. I commented that I can't seem to like red polish on me, and Rach suggested to find a red I like & go from there!
So I looked through my tiny red stash and realized I needed to try China Glaze Poinsettia from their 2011 Holiday Collection. I'm not sure why I picked this up, but I'm glad I did! I like it in its own right, AND as a base for Devil's Dandruff (a red jelly with these great metallic-y red flakes) :] I have it here by itself on my pinky, and over Poinsettia on my first three fingers.
2 coats of Poinsettia + 1 of DD on index to ring fingers, then 3 coats of DD on pinky finger/
I might do 2 coats Poinsettia, 2 DD next time.. I just love glitter:]
DD on it's own
This is Poinsettia on its own.
Okay, I think I can do this red thing! Any suggestions for another red I should pick up?? Also, I'm working on a little Christmas franken collection for myself:] here's a sneak peek at one I made recently:
Heehee:] I'm excited.
