I can't believe how cold it has been in the Cleveland area in the past couple of weeks! This is only my second winter here and I don't remember the last one being so cold. Of course, I was privately miserable with my first trimester woes so last winter was bad in a different way. I am happy to hear the long time Clevelanders tell me this is unusual even for Clevelend. In other news, my son is slowly learning the art of putting himself to sleep while at the same time I am learning to allow him to cry a bit so he can go back to sleep without needing me around. In fact, I learned that he gets more sleep if I don't go to him every time he cries. Go figure!
Let me tell you about this mani, real quick. This is NYX Girls Emerald Forest, which is the same as NYX Advanced Salon Formula Enchanted Forest. However, if you thought that had anything to do with NYX Girls Enchanted Forest, you would be wrong. Confused yet? I was. Which is why I own both NYX Girls Emerald Forest and NYX Advanced Salon Formula Enchanted Forest. Oh well, it's so pretty that I don't mind! This is a sheerish micro glitter polish with gold and green microglitter in a green tinted base. I wish it wasn't as sheer as it is because it took three goopy coats to get opacity.
The sparkle is amazing though! If you follow me on Instagram, I had posted a video of this a long time ago.
The stamping was done with China Glaze Passion and the image from a Red Angel plate, RA 10.
Originally I had it without the extra dots and pinky stamping. It felt sort of unfinished that way. What do you think? Less is more?
