The nail polish, on the other hand, the jury's still out on. I've discovered I'm not a light pink type of person. Pale and light colors tend to make my hands look short and stubby. I need darker colors on my hands. The color itself isn't bad. It's a very light pink jelly packed with silver glitter and larger holographic (!) hexagonal glitter pieces.

I just didn't like it on my own hands. The polish itself was extremely thick. This manicure was two thick coats. It probably could have used another, but I didn't want to add another to it. It is also quite gritty, and needs a good topcoat of Seche Vite to attempt to even it out a bit.
I think I kept this on for slightly over 24 hours. I wanted it off. I've always had trouble getting off glitter polishes, so I wanted to try a new technique to take off the polish. Behold - the ingredients:
|10 cotton balls, acetone and aluminum foil|
I ripped the foil into 10 pieces, soaked each cotton ball in acetone, put them right on top of my nail and wrapped the whole thing in the foil. Then, I left this concoction on my nails for 10 minutes:
Oh, I looked silly indeed, the spitfire was laughing, but when I pulled those aluminum foil fingertips off, there wasn't a trace of glitter! It worked quite well. I highly suggest this technique for glitters.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
