Wet n Wild Behind Closed Doors

Hi ladies... sorry for my absence. I got sick with a cold, so I gave myself one day off. Then yesterday, tragedy hit when I got the worst sinus headache/tension migraine of my entire life. My poor boyfriend on the phone with me and I'm yelling at him that he's talking too loud and crying because the street lights were too bright... anyway, all of you migraine sufferers know what I'm talking about. Not fun. Then today I was working all day. So ANYWAY...I'm a bad blogger, and you get this random night post.

Today I bring you one of the elusive Wet n Wild On the Prowl polishes: Behind Closed Doors. This one was my real lemming of the collection, and I've heard it's dupey for a Deborah Lippmann polish but I'm not rich enough to buy that one to compare... sorry. Anyway, it's a black jelly base with small red microglitter and larger red hex glitter. It's a true stunner.

For this mani, I layered BCD over a black creme (to conserve BCD, of course) and then put two coats of BCD over it. I could have just done one coat, but it didn't apply very consistently (which you can still sort of tell in my pictures) and it was not my desired look at just one coat.

Overall, I loved this polish! You have to shake it up before you use it to get the full glitter effect, but it's awesome, and perfect for Halloween! What do you guys think?

I have a horrid headache too! I wonder if it goes along with this cold/flu thing we've got?? I hope you feel better soon.
This looks so much like RRS, which I do have and haha, just posted tonight! SO pretty.

Nice find!

I can empathize on the migraine. I can still vividly remember the multi-day one I got at Disney World one trip--oh I was miserable.

Loves it! Mine is still sitting in my "untried & unrecorded" pile. I need to get to work on that. ♥

Thanks all!

Aren't migraines a pain? (No pun intended) They can really ruin a whole experience. :( I'm feeling better now, luckily mine rarely span more than a day.

If you have this or Ruby Red Slippers, wear it! This means you, Mandy! ;)
