There are several things that I find fun and one of them are pleasant surprises. Those little, sweet, unexpected events. Getting a speeding ticket is not a pleasant surprise. Finding some cheap nail polish that goes beyond my expectations is.
Check out this pretty blue…
Love and Beauty’s ‘Navy.’ I don’t even thing it is close to navy. Nail polish name fail! How about ‘Navy Gravy?’ I am pleased that I was able to capture the golden swirls in this polish. Because of the golden shimmer, this ups it a notch to me and I likey!!!
This is two coats of color over a base coat. I have one coat of Seche Clear followed by one coat of China Glaze’s Fast Forward Top Coat.
Not a bad polish, at all, for $2.80.
Now, this one, got my ‘OMG!!!’….
‘Purple.’ Really? That’s all they could say about this super cool color? Hmmm…’Purple Smurple.’ Same as the ‘Navy Gravy’, it has the shimmer of gold.
I want to give a disclaimer; I am showing this mani after 4 hours of working in a grocery store. I’m a merchandiser, so I move things around, put them in place and make them look nice. A lot of times that involves picking off a price tag. That’s were the wear comes in on this mani. I would have taken photos before I left to work if the sun would have been up; it was just a bit after sun up when I left this morning.
But, pleasant surprise…
This is one coat! I have one coat of China Glaze’s Fast Forward Top Coat on that was followed with Seche Vite.
Both of these paid off looking just like the color in the bottle. I paid only $2.80 for each of them. They applied and dried well. Yea…you could say I’m pleasantly surprised.
What was the last polish that became a pleasant surprise for you?
