Just quickly showing you what I have done with my nails for my birthday. The wish was to keep it simple but festive, so I stopped on a combination of pink and crazy glitter dupish to Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday : ) The two polishes I was using were Essie Knockout Pout and Milani Gems.
Milani Gems is one of my beloved glitters, and Essie Knockout Pout I was testing for the first time. Most probably the last one too... Blah formula - after 3 coats you still see the bald spots, dries ok fast but not any glossy - neonish and matteish. Alone looks cheap. In my opinion. You either need a top coat or a layering polish. Boo, Essie. Again boo.
By the way, on the picture I'm holding my main present : ) My crazy boyfriend decided that my life won't be full without Sams Galaxy Note. Crazy, I'm telling you : ) But me like and me happy. And me travelling (and I haven't bought the Internet package yet), so I'll get back to your comments a bit later.
Cheers to all! ; )
