First off, my blog sale/swap list works now. I'm not quite sure what happened but it is up to view right now!! Here's the link!
I've got a pretty embarrassing story to tell you!! So you know how I've really started loving glitter, especially since I've discovered Elmer's glue for the basecoat? I just can't get enough!! Bam bam, paint your nails, and they just come off without hassle, dipping your fingers in acetone forever and some, or using silly foil. And remember how I said that I was curious what people at work were going to say about my glitter? Well here's what happened to me yesterday at work:
I was wearing my awesome glitterish mani that I showed you here. Everything was fine and I was about to go pick up a patient from the ICU for our second surgery. That's when I got a phone call from the doctor I was working with, and he goes: "You have an emergency!!", to which I replied "Yes, I know, I'm on my way to get her!". But he keeps going: "You have an emergency!! Your nail broke off, but no worries, I saved it for you!! I've got it taped to the machine!!" OMG, I was mortified... how embarrassing!!! I went back to the OR and my tech shows me the stupid nail and says "He (the doctor) told me not to throw it away!!"... I thought I was going to die!! As you have probably figured out, my polish came off my nail completely!! Stupid stupid Elmer's glue!!! I peeled off the rest of my nails so this wouldn't happen again... gaaahh!!! has this ever happened to you????? How do you prevent this??? I love glitter but I will never ever wear it to work again!!!
Anyway... today's NOTD does not contain glitter!! haha =)) I've got an older polish to show you, OPI "Cozu-Melted In the Sun" combined with Zoya "Dovima Matte"!
Cozu-Melted In the Sun was a total surprise for me!! When I first looked at the bottle I thought 'WTH, why did I ever buy this???' It looked sheer and pink in a ugly sense... and then I put it on my nails and everything changed!! It's 2 coats of unbelievably pretty polish!! It's rose gold with all kinds of shimmer!! It's almost like a foil but it has more shimmer and sparkle than your usual foil. It's really awesome!!! Definitely a keeper in my book!!
Next I applied some striping tape diagonally and painted the tips with Dovima Matte. I used one coat of this smoky grey/black that dried very fast!! I'm not sure if I like the combo though... I screwed up the tape, and the contrast between the two may be too strong? I'll let you decide!
Cozu-Melted In the Sun is part of OPI Mexico collection released way back in 2006 so it's not 3-free. Ok in my book though, it's not like I use it all the time!
Dovima Matte was part of Zoya Matte Velvet released in fall of 2010.
And since we're talking about Cozumel... (get it? Cozu-Mel -- ted) Here's my picture from my vacation in Cozumel!!! I've got really good memories from there =)
What do you guys think about this mani? Do you like it or does it look 'off' to you? Honestly!!
Thanks so much for reading!!!
