Do you ever look peek at a blog sale and find yourself wanting something so bad, but knowing that you shouldn't buy it? I have to keep telling myself "Repeat after me: 'I will not spent $50+ on a few bottles of Lippmann polish, I will NOT spend $50+ on a few bottles of Lippmann polish!!!'"
...Though they're three great colors that I really want........
I WILL NOT SPEND $50+ ON LIPPMANN POLISH!!!
Apparently Snowpocalypse is in the process of hitting us. What is my reaction to this? Do I rush out to the superstores and stock up, or fill my car with blankets and emergency rations just in case of a slide off?
Psssh, of course not! I was too busy giving myself a cute snow manicure!
Here's both my right and left hand. I used Nicole by OPI Midnight Snowfall (which has a ridiculously appropriate name, by the way) for the base. Like all blurples, the color in the photo is, of course, inaccurate. I like this polish a lot because it's simply the most straight forward blue violet cream I've seen, I think. I used two coats here, but ladies with longer nails will likely want three. It's a little thin for being such a dark polish, but the end color is totally worth it! For the snowflakes, I used Nicole by OPI Positive Energy. I used one snowflake on each nail (not bothering to line them up nicely, obv), and two flakes on each thumb.
Sorry for no bottle or plate pictures. They're all over at Bradley's apartment, which is far across the frozen tundra. :P
Considering that I managed to do this manicure and watch Lost at the same time, I think it turned out pretty well!
I have a question for you ladies! Outside of the China Glaze Khrome and Romantique polishes, what others work very well for stamping? I've been using Nicole by OPI Positive Energy and Light a Candle a lot lately, and I also just picked up a metallic pink from Orly. Also, what's the best opaque white polish to use for stamping, outside of the special polishes? Please share any and all suggestions!
Thank you for reading! :D
