Color Club Art of Seduction and Object of Envy Glitter Vixen

I ended up moving a few months ago, and then I got behind posting photos of my manis. Here's my Christmas mani so far. I'll probably end up changing it next week since my nails are getting a bit too long. I find if it's too long, it gets in the way of taking care of my kids and typing. Since I'm on the computer almost all day, it gets annoying if it's too long.

I ended up putting this on in the semi-dark at 3am. I'm expecting baby #3 in May, and I was feeling horrible during the night so I was wide awake. I thought why not do my nails instead. :) Please excuse my dry and ugly cuticles. The nausea from this pregnancy isn't doing great things for my skin right now.

Color Club "Art of Seduction" on all my nails except for the ring fingers which are done with "Object of Envy" as accent nails. I love the thickness of the green glitter, but the red was pretty sparce. It wasn't as easy to work with, and I ended up having to do three layers. And even then it ended up with bald spots. I think I will use a base color first next time.

Sally Hansen Grape Going & NOPI Let's Get Star-Ted

I'm in a Facebook group for Nail  Polish-aholics, and we just started a weekly challenge. First one was purple nail polish, and this is my version. My 7yo daughter got the Sally Hansen polish for me for my birthday, but I haven't had a chance to swatch it yet. I normally don't love duochrome polishes, but this is actually really pretty. It's purple and it flashes blue. I wanted to jazz it up a little for the challenge so I added Nicole by OPI's "Let's Get Star-ted" which has purple holo stars. They look purple but looks holo in sunlight. There's also holo microglitter in it too.

Initially out of the bottle, the stars are really tough to get out, so you have to either use an orange stick or take all the polish off the brush and try to fish them out. Getting them on your nail is also difficult too. Once they're on, if you have rounded nails the ends of the stars stick out. To minimize that, I push them into the polish once it's almost dry. Then I added Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat on top then topped it off with Poshe. Even then, you can feel the edges of the stars. If you like your nails smooth, I wouldn't recommend it.
