BFF Week: Amanda of MaD Manis

Hi gals! It's my last BFF week post and I'm a bit sad. :( It was so nice to see some manis that people thought I would love (and I did!) and see how tight-knit the blogging community can be when we aren't competing. Speaking of competing, the last post is by yet another blogging Amanda... but I love her anyway. Started BFF week with an Amanda, ended with an Amanda, all hosted on a blog by Amanda... go figure.

Hello nail polish enthusiasts! Amanda is letting me invade her blog for the second time in a few weeks! She must really love me a lot :) Amanda is one of my very best blogging friends and when she asked me if I wanted to do a post for BFF week, I said "As long as I don't have to leap into your territory and do glitter!" (Not really). But seriously. I'm leaving the glitter to her because she's like Kesha and would probably throw it if she could (she DOES eat it....).

Today I have something similar to glitter, but not quite. It's China Glaze Snow Globe! I know you've probably all seen a million snow globe swatches but I haven't used it yet because I've been swamped with my 31-day challenge!

I put two coats over Revlon Perplex. I picked up Perplex on a whim last year when I saw it sitting all alone in a corner of Ulta. I was surprised no one had picked it up yet! Everyone was trying to get a hold of it, and little old me found it without even looking :) So I picked it up and took it home to join my little polish family.

Snow Globe is a flakey glitter goodness in a clear sparkly base. It's pretty much like spreading glue all over your nails so if you want this one to be glass smooth, you'll want to use a few coats of SV or Gelous. I don't mind a rough texture (as long as there's not shards of flakey particles sticking off my nails to snag on things) so I just used one coat of Seche Vite. Voila!

That's all! Thanks again Amanda for letting me invade your blog....again :) Hope you all have a fabulous week and remember everything that you're thankful for!

Yay, Amandas! <3
I love this combo. I've had Snow Globe before but I never thought to try it over Perplex! I found my Perplex bottle the exact same way - and I haven't even swatched it yet!

Amanda said...

Amanda- yes, it's going to be my go-to polish... I can feel it! haha

Emma- Amanda says thank you ;)

Nicole- get to swatching! I'd love to see it on you!
