The title will make sense later. For now just focus on the polish.
Essence Forget Me Not
I had been wanting this for a while and on my birthday I finally caved. But then I had it at home and I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I hate it when that happens. But I figured I needed to try it anyway, it's ridiculous to just have an unused polish lying around. And after I put it on... guess what?
I LOVED IT! in the shaaade
shade (the sun literally went away RIGHT after I walked outside :|)
WTF is this. Oh... I think I white-balanced... this color was hard to capture right.
White balanced again
And this is under the lamp, also white balanced I think.
I had trouble getting it to show up accurately. It was always either too blue or too purple but it's really smack dab in the middle of them, I think. There's some hidden shimmer in the bottle but it's completely invisible on the nail. Honestly though, it doesn't bother me a bit 'cause it's gorgeous. Two coats of luscious love.
There has been some My Little Pony craze going around on MUA lately. (are you sick of me talking about MUA? Well get over it) I took a MLP quiz to see which one I was and I got Twilight Sparkle.
I have no idea what this means.
Anyway, the mani was feeling a bit boring so I decided to spice it up with a glitter gradient using CG Amethyst Mist.
And it's the perfect manicure to match Twilight Sparkle, my pony soul sister! Crazy coincidence! It is super awesome. I've never really cared about Amethyst Mist before but I love this. It's a very sheer jelly purple with some smaller blue/purple glitter and bigger opalescent hex glitter. As you can see, it is the perfect gradient glitter. This was super easy. I just painted the first coat 2/3rds of the way down my nail, and then the next coat slightly less, and one last coat that was just the top 1/3rd. So awesome.
So, if you were a My Little Pony, what would your nails (hoofs) look like?
