(S)he Picks My Polish: November Edition

It's still November right? No? I don't know how it became December all of a sudden today. I had really good intentions of getting this post up two weeks ago when I actually painted these, but you know what they say about good intentions. They apparently don't help with blog posts. For the November "He Picks My Polish" challenge we decided to change things up a bit and have a female choose the polishes instead. My mom helped all the way from Thailand.  Since she's so far away I had her choose three colors and numbers and I used the corresponding polishes. I have to say, she did a surprisingly good job with her random unseen picks.

She picked a grey a purple and a glitter:
Nina Ultra Pro- Inkling- such a nice inky grey
Zoya- Julieanne- the sparkliest purple
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear- In the Spotlight- beautiful holographic bar glitter

I started with Inkling as my base and used scotch tape to tape off the triangles and filled them in with Julieanne. I used one coat of In the Spotlight on my index finger (under the triangle) and two coats on my pinkie. I thought I'd need more coats of the glitter but with careful dabbing I was able to get the coverage I wanted in just two. My mom knows me well and she picked my two favorite colors so of course I absolutely love how this came out.

Rainbows.. mmmm.


  1. You and your mom have such great taste! Love the combo and how you used them!
