One coat over WnW black creme.
Why, oh why, would OPI ever mess with the perfection of the original holo version of MPJ?! This has been my biggest lemming, ever! I think this is my ideal polish. A little bit subtle and understated, maybe even boring until the light hits it and then, WHAM! Black rainbow goodness in your face. This polish is me personified! I do a lot more thinking than talking, there's a whole lot under the surface.
So what polish is YOU personified?

1/2 ChG Dorothy Who?
1/2 ChG Emeral Sparkle
a wee bit of Le Chat fine blue glitter & emerald glitter
a pinch of Le Chat holo glitters in 2 sizes, platinum & silver screen
It sort of reminds me of Massini brand's Medallion Purple & Slamming Red

Nails Inc Haul: Belgrave Place, Clerkenwell, Haymarket, Elizabeth St, Little Venice, originally uploaded by kennasmomma.
Belgrave Place, Clerkenwell, Haymarket, Elizabeth St, Little Venice
I've been lemming Nails Inc for a while now. Seems there are a few ways to get it in the US. Some UK beauty sites will ship internationaly. There's also International Ebay, which was what I chose. I will definitely be getting more!
I adore this polish! The coverage was so good. The formula was fabulous! This could have been a one coater, but I did 2. It does dry rather quickly, so you have to work fast. It did give me ogre fingers, though. I hope my base coat keeps it from staining. This polish is slightly darker than the photo. Under artificial lighting it looks rather blackened, but it is definitely green/teal. It leans really blue and I love it!
I decided to add CND Sparkle Effects in Sapphire to my day old Drift Away Mani. Sadly, I did find that this Diamond Cosmetics polish did show tip wear rather quickly :( I got so many compliments on this mani after I added the sparkle to it. People loved it! A couple customers asked me specificly what polish it was.

I wore Red My Fortune Cookie for about 2 or 3 days and then decided to put 2 coats of Wing It! over it. I love it! This combo has sparkle and duochrmatic colors. It pulls red, orange, and pink. Grogeous!
Awesome formula! Easy to work with, opaque in 2 coats. Has a dusty look. Greyed out plum perhaps? Hard to describe.

Check out this cool new blog I found! I've been lemming BB Couture Intake Valve. If I don't win, I hope you do. Good luck!
This is another must have! Are you noticing a theme? Yea, I really like blue. I think I might have tweaked my Dorothy Who? a little. I remember adding some dark blue China Glaze to it... might have been Calypso Blue. It turned out awesome!
Glass flecked goodness! Yummers. I love this polish. I wish China Glaze had more of these glass flecked polishes available.
Another of the summer's must haves! I love this polish! I bought a back up! This is 2 coats over Essence Pool Party.
I had no idea how awesome this polish was going to be. Only after I got it in my hot little hands did I realize it has green micro glitter! None of the pictures I saw showed the aqua green glittery goodness! You need this polish! Its one of my all time favorites this summer.
I had heard rumours about this polish for a long time, but it was always out of stock! So when I saw it back in stock I grabbed 2. It did not disappoint. I love it! Its so glassy and smooth. It cured my lemming for Ilamasqua Rampage and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Blackboard.
I thought I'd show you my manicure lab! I had the brillant idea to create this vanity nook when I was building my house. The other side of the wall is my shower, so I sacrificed a gigantic shower for a large shower and this nook.
The black binder next to my Helmer holds my Konad plates. The blue topped Sterilite box holds a jumble of nail wheels. The magnet on my helmer is a Twilight magnet of Rosalie and Emmet that was given to me by a friend at her Twlight Party.
This polish is such a pretty color and has that squishy jelly look. Unfortunately this is about 4 coats, which never really dried in the humidity. The next morning it was smudge city. When the weather gets nicer I'll try it again.
This a manicure inspired by that white paint color you often see on expensive SUVs. I used Orly White Out and regreted it. Its streaky and gloppy. Next time I think I'll try OPI Alpine Snow or SH Xtreme's white.
