Meteor Shower and Lightening Bolt

Hey Polish Addicts,

Today I have 2 coats of Meteor Shower by China Glaze.  I had heard different things about this color on the internet before I bought it.  When I got it, the color looked perfect.  It is a dark blue jellyish consistancy with many different glitter pieces in it.  The glitter is kinda chunky but with good topcoat, it's all good.  I used some crackle, Lightening Bolt by China Glaze.  I was kinda dissapointed that the glitter didn't really show to well with the crackle.... Oh well!

Seriously, enlarge the meteor shower pics.  It's gorg.

Fun With Crackle

Hey Polish Addicts,

Here is a post using Broken Hearted from China Glaze Crackle.  It's a pink shatter and if you don't live in a hole, you probably know about this collection :)  The base color is Color Club Twiggie from the Poptastic collection and I'm totally in love with this mani.  It reminds me of watermellons in the summer time.

Teenage Dream with Hearts!!!

Hey Polish Addicts!

I've reached over 100 followers!!! Thank you guys so much :)  Anyway!  This is 3 coats of Teenage Dream by OPI from the katy Perry collection.  This is the only color that I picked up because none of the other ones really interested me.  I really liked it and I think this will be my valentines day mani.  Then I added some konad (pinky m65, ring and thumb m59, middle and pointer m3) using sinful colors black on black.  This is a little random story but so weird.  So I went up to my room to grab my camera to take a pic, and I turned on the radio and the song Teenage Dream was on.  I started freaking out.  Okay end of story :)

China Glaze Phat Santa

Hey Polish Addicts,

All of this snow... well.  I haven't really been inspired to do anything cool.  So here it is... Ugh. 2 coats of CG Phat Santa from the Tis the Season to be Naughty or Nice collection.  Its a deeper tomato red jelly.  I really like this!!! It looked nice and neat.  I just added some white stripes on my pinky using la colors art deco in white. *thats what I do when I don't know what else to do....*

Sorry for the lameness.

Zoya Indigo and Konad m64

Hey Polish Addicts,

I received Zoya Indigo like 2 weeks ago from that FB promotion and i decided to use it.  When I saw it in the bottle I was so excited because it was a deep blue which is always amazing, but it looked sooo packed with holographic particle glitter.  But when I applied it, the glitter was buried :( bummer.  So I added some konad using Clarie's Platinum and plate m64.  Don't mind the terrible konad, i haven't done it in like a few months so I kinda forgot how to do it. LOL.
