Sippin’ Champagne and Doing My Nails

With the holidays being over, it’s sort of anti-climatical to look at polish colors that have ‘holiday’ names.  But, if I just look at the color and go with my mood, I can deal with that. 

And, if you can’t wait to see what’s up and happenin’ for the spring, check out Vampy Varnish’s blog.  She reviewed some very spring-y colors from Dashing Diva.

When I saw the Barielle display at Ulta, I pushed everyone aside including a 10 year old quietly strolled over to it and got my grubby hands on picked up 2 colors to try out.

Here’s one of them…

‘Jess’ Champagne Toast’ got more brownie points other than just being a fun purple: they used the possessive following two ‘S’ correctly. 

It took 3 coats to get the color depth on the nail to match what was in the bottle.  I love the color in the bottle so much, I was prepared to do as many coats as necessary to achieve it.  I did put on one coat of Seche Clear, then a coat of China Glaze’s ‘Fast Forward Top Coat, then finally, Seche Vite.

A silvery purple with lots of shimmer, it also has pink micro-glitter as well.  This was a fine polish to use.  Performs easily and dries fairly fast too.  If you haven’t read my spin on purple being pink’s cousin, twice removed, you’ll understand why Libby’s Vanity has a ‘thing’ about purples. 

Do you think ‘Jess’ Champagne Toast’ would suit you?  Do you know who your cousin, twice-removed, is?
