Rock Star From Mars

 So I wanted to do something glittery today and there's never a bad time to use a Charlie Sheen glitter polish, am I right or am I right?

 Icing Rock Star From Mars. I think this is kind of a "fluffy" polish, which means that a lot of polish is used up in just one manicure. I had to do pretty thick coats to get it to any kind of opacity.

Outside, shade.

 
Outside, sunny.


Inside by a window.

Inside, just... in the middle of a room... yeah...

This is three thick coats. I know it looks pretty VNL-y, but it doesn't look that bad in real life.

Seeee?

I think this is really pretty. I thought I was going to wish I had done underwear, but I actually liked the squishy light blue effect, which was even prettier with the gold glitter. It's not extremely sparkly but it's really nice. I can't recall ever seeing anything like this before.

And I made a small haul yesterday, I'll go take pictures of it right now and edit them in! Do you think this Charlie Sheen glitter is hawt? I am totally digging it.

EDIT:

 From the dollar store I got a nail buffer, LA Colors Sea Siren, and a quick dry topcoat. From Walmart (ick) I got Wet n' Wild Blue Moon and Night Prowl (I thought this looked like Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance minus the bigger glitter, we'll see how it shakes out)

From Sally's I got nail polish thinner, China Glaze Strawberry Fields (I've been lemming this forever, I LOVE the Beatles so I had to have this), two little Sally Girl cuticle oils (they were on sale for 39 cents, I might have to go back and grab a bunch more. They smell a teensy bit like orange).

Why yes, that does look like hair dye... I guess you'll have to stay tuned.

Okay, I'm done fo realz this time. Over and out!

  4. Indeed, it's a bit of a bummer but you could always use an "underwear" polish, like a light blue, underneath, that way you wouldn't have to layer it on so thickly. :)

  5. LOL @ "squishy" and "underwear". You have such cute polish terminology. :)
