Squee! I'm so excited! My bottle of beautiful teal glittery goodness arrived today, just three days after ordering it! (Wish I could say the same of my Llarowe order, which two weeks later still hasn't even been shipped yet, Grrrrr!) I tore that package open so fast and oooh'd and ahhh'd over the polish inside!
Behold the beauty that is Happy Hands - For British Eyes Only. Teal jelly packed with different sizes of round and hex teal glitter and.... wait for it.... TEAL HOLOGRAPHIC GLITTER! Yesssss! Be still my teal-loving heart! Thank you sooo much, Kristi, my fellow Florida girl and teal enthusiast! If I could design my own polish, this would probably be it!
Pictures are two coats of FBEO (the first coat I painted on like any other polish and the second coat I kind of dabbled on for more coverage) over DIY peel-off base coat (Elmer's Glue), topped with a coat of Seche Vite, then two coats of Gelous, and finished off with one more coat of SV for maximum glossiness and sparkle. I'm in LOVE!
Check out Happy Hands at her blog and her Etsy shop! She makes gorgeous polishes!
Edited to add: I just read on Pointless Cafe that September is Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Awareness Month and the color is - you guessed it - teal! Some bloggers have joined up and are doing teal manis for the cause. I just so happen to have done my nails teal last night, and I have quite a few teal polishes (with one more on the way - Pretty and Polished Rat-a-Tat) so I went ahead and added this post to the list of links! :) If I get the code and figure out how, I'll add the Inlinkz thingie!
