Sparkle and Shine

Want to add a little sparkle and shine to your manicure? Keep reading! OK, so I kind of have this problem. I can't go into a store that sells nail polish and not buy at least one new bottle. I love nail polish! I have a fine arts degree, which introduced me to this amazing world of color. So when I see nail polish, for me it's like looking at the color wheel and seeing an infinite array of beautiful colors and different ways to combine them. The possibilities are endless! I kind of have the same problem when it comes to makeup. I see a color I love and I have to have it! Now don't get me wrong, makeup and nail polish can get expensive, so I tend to stick to drug store brands that are affordable and allow me to get my fix, so to speak. Anyway, I'm rambling, the point of this little blog today is in fact nail polish, specifically Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Ice Queen. It is beautiful! It's a glitter polish that is so sparkly and shimmery! It is a super fine silver glitter base mixed with fine green, red, and yellow glitter and chunkier flecks of blue and purple. I wore it over Cover Girls Midnight Magic, which is a really deep navy blue shade. However, I think it would look perfect with any darker shade. I really would like to try it with Sinful Colors Last Chance, a really pretty emerald color, or Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in Gunmetal, a rich grey shade. It would also look lovely on it's own, you made need to put on a few coats though for full opacity. I'm not sure what else to say about it, except that it really is pretty! I'll let the pictures do the talking for me!
