Whilst nail polish blogging is fun, it quickly turns into an addiction. Or, maybe it’s an obsession. Workout DVDs have been my addiction for almost 8 years. Even though I started using them back in the ’80’s, I leaped off with it in full bravado exactly one day after getting married. And I have/had a lot of fun jumping on various fitness band wagons.
As I had blogged here, American Apparel is all new to me. But not anymore! They sell 1 bottle for $6, 3 bottles for $15. Yes, you are right; it made better sense to get the 3/$15!! Surprise.
Nope. I could NOT leave well-enough alone. First of all, I used American Apparel’s ‘Office.’ Not sure why they chose ‘Office’ as the name. Looks more like kitchenware from 1950’s era. It’s a creme polish that doesn’t have a lot of shine on its own. It’s sort of turquoise, sort of blue-ish green. I know I don’t have anything like this in my stock, though. It is much greener than China Glaze’s ‘For Audrey.’ I just got that one and will soon swatch it. But even with the two next to each other, there is no duplicate.
Then I started to play with this mani. I tried out my China Glaze Matte. Now it looks like some vinyl covering on a bar stool from my hometown drug store! I wanted to jazz it up so I whipped out the ‘makes every polish better’ Sally Hansen’s ‘Hidden Treasure.’ Ah, that put some piss in the pizazz!
Hidden Treasure with Office (just for kicks, a Hidden Treasure in my Office would be finding that the stapler works on the first try) reminds me of a mermaid.
Gosh, I’ve trimmed my nails since I did this manicure. I miss them too. Stupid broken nail!!! I sure wish my fingernails could be has hard as my biceps. 😉
Got some polish that you have to pizazz? Do you agree that Hidden Treasure makes a lot of so-so colors better, and good colors great!?
