Clearance finds are the best. 

I found Sinful Colors’ Rain Storm polish in a bin at Big Lots for $1. It’s a nice blue, moodier and more denim than it looks here. A one coater for my blissfully shortened nails, too. 

After a couple of days I brushed on a layer or two of a glitter top coat called Indi-Go With The Flow, which I got on clearance at Sephora when they were discontinuing the Sephora by OPI range of polishes. It’s a very pretty but slightly unmanageable silvery periwinkle glitter. It blends in with Rain Storm a bit but I like that.

ariedana replied to your photo: “My nails have been boring as heck. Thank goodness for Easter providing…”:
Are you doing another bL buy anytime soon? I am lusting after the spring colours.

If they have another F&F sale and some colors come out that I want, I might do - if it falls at the right paycheck time. I haven’t been really thrilled by any of the colors lately except Sozzled, Dust Up, and Titchy, and I have just about all the older colors I want, so without big impetus, I haven’t been in the mood to place an order, alas.

I love this polish, but it is entirely impossible to photograph. It is a glitterbomb without question, and the bling is turned up to eleven. 

One coat of Happy Hands “Illusions, Michael” (original formulation, as near as I can tell - was obtained in a blog sale of sorts) over one coat of Barry M Gelly in “Blood Orange”, which is really just red, I know, but it’s a really nice red I should wear more. 

I put this over a coat of Essence Peel Off Base Coat because there is no way I want to try scrubbing this off with acetone and cotton balls. Even the foil method would have a time and a half with this…

I was rummaging through my collection when I found my bottle of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple and thought, “Doing this!”

It’s just so pretty…

One coat of the Kleancolor over one coat of butter London in Bramble, which I guess must be one of my very favorite polish colors since I reach for it when I can’t think of anything else to wear. So pretty and perfect.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Went simple: Sally Hansen Triple Shine in Kelp Out (still love it, what a great green, right? second wearing this year) with a layer of Sinful Colors in Green Ocean, their annual St. Patrick’s glitterflake offering.

This is super girly for me but I really do kind of love it tons. 

Thumb and ring: Delush Polish, Je Ne Sais Quoi, three coats. It’s so effervescently fun with all the bubble-like circle glitters!

Index: two coats of OPI Movin’ Out over Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy. Always love the pink-green-gold color shift of Movin’ Out!

Middle and Pinky: one coat of Salon Perfect Loves Me, Loves Me Not over Stormy. Stormy, by the way, is a perfectly beautifully behaved deep gray, and looks so nice under the baby pink and black matte glitter.

Zoya PixieDusts - my forever loves, and this one is at the top of the list, it’s so gorgeous. Chyna, an amazing ruby red texture. Actually tempted to order a backup of it! I’ve used it more than any of my other Pixies, which is a surprise as I usually shy away from using reds too often. 

Pixies are incredible for when I need to have glam nails in a hurry - no layering of basecoat between layers of color as I usually do, no topcoat! But such a pretty end result…
