Rainbow Connection: The Obsession

As the title of this post states, yes, I adore Rainbow Connection by OPI.  I adore it so much that a while back I did two manicures in a row using it as a glitter top coat.  How very creative of me.

First I used it on top of Essence Color & Go choose me!, and then I layered it over OPI's Planks A Lot from the Pirates of the Carribean collection.

I also tried out the Sally Hansen Diamond Flash fast dry top coat.  I like it, but not for dense glitters.  For those I prefer Sally Hansen's Insta Dri or Seche Vite.

Updates! + Another Essence Polish!

The life of Ash has been busy these days, and, of course, I've done my nails multiple times, but I've barely been on my computer, hence the lack of blog posts.  I'm trying to catch up, but it's more difficult than I thought.

Exciting news, though!

My package of nail polish making supplies should arrive tomorrow.  I'm slowly but surely preparing to make my own glitter polish, and I have ideas for an awesome holiday collection.  I know it's probably silly for somebody with only eight blog followers to start their own brand, seems like a fun hobby!  Who knows, maybe I will do a giveaway in the future.

For now, here's a few photos of Essence Color & Go grey-t to be here.  I love this polish! It's a grey creme with itty-bitty pink sparkles.  It's neutral and feminine at the same time; so adorable.

Essence: Fame Fatal

First of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of posting this past week! I am sorry, guys! I've been busy busy with work and everything else that comes up during a week.  Of course, I've had time to do my nails every other day, so there will be a few pretty cool upcoming posts.  All I have to do is edit some photos.

Anyway, the mani I am wearing today is exactly what the title of this post says:  Fame Fatal.  I LOVE how awesome this red is.  And shiny! It's so shiny! The application was easy enough and the polish went on smooth.  I really adore most Essence polishes.  I took these photos with the flash on because it showed a more accurate depiction of the color.
