No, no, I'm not a pothead!!! One of the Facebook groups I belong to called for a 70's manicure, and what are the 60's and 70's known for? Drugs.. among other things that is. But there were so many hippies during those years, besides, I had a plate with a pot leaf on it so I had to use it someday, right? =))
More interesting thing though is the actual polish that I used for this manicure. You may know Jin by now, my cyber BFF. Well.. my wonderful friend decided to put her talent into making her own nail polish! And what a product she came up with... Check out the pictures!!! They speak for themselves!!! May I present to you the most wonderful and new indie polish, Superficially Colorful Lacquer "Impulsive"!!!
Impulsive is something that I've never tried before: a color-changing polish! When 'cold' it is the color of a juicy, summer grass. It has the most gorgeous golden shimmer throughout that comes out to play in any light, but especially in the sun! Two coats covered the nail completely.
I really really wish my nails were longer... My current nubs really don't do this polish justice! When inserted under hot water, or, I would imagine, on warm fingers, this polish turns to lime green. Just imagine having a perfect gradient on your long nails where the base color would be light green and your tips darker green!
