I just got back from Sally Beauty, where I found three new polishes that got my heart racing. I went in looking for Out the Door quick dry topcoat and right next to the display I saw a bottle of Out the Door’s Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat. I’ve been obsessing over Goose’s Glitter’s holo topcoat mani so of course I had to buy it and give it a shot.
I really tried to capture it, but my camera refused. Also, look how badly Electrify has chipped, and I just applied it last night. I have the worst luck with glitter polishes.
Even though the photo doesn’t show it well, I can attest to its effectiveness. It added a layer of rainbow shimmer without changing the color of the base coat. I’m going to try this over another mani tonight that might show it a bit better.
I’ve discovered a new craft. I do this frequently, find a craft and try to master it, then abandon it for something else. First it was open torch glass bead work (like this) and then it was cold-process soapmaking (here’s my closed Etsy shop). Then it was Xanadoodle crochet amigirumis. Now I’ve got something else up my sleeve, and if I can master the skill I might reopen my Xanadoodle shop and start hawking goods again. No hints, I need to learn some skills before I go talking about my ideas.
Have you seen those wrap bracelets that are popping up everywhere? Turns out they’re super easy to make. I happened across a tutorial linked from Glam Life Without Strife. Check it out, don’t you just want a rhinestone wrapped bracelet?
Okay that’s it. The kids want to go outside and play with squirt guns now. Later, aligators.
