The Life I Know.

‎"she wakes up in the morning with a smile on her face knowing that yesterday when she needed him.. he was there,.. and today when she looks for him... he'll be in the same place."

Today I have for you my current manicure featuring some polishes from my most recent mini haul. I have to admit it; I am a glitter addict. I go completely crazy anytime I see ANY glitter polish, especially if it looks pretty to me. I was a little unsure of what I wanted to do, so I just kind of went with it. The result was 3 coats of CG in the City and sponged tips with Midtown Magic... both from the Metro Collection. I have to say, I am kind of impressed with the result even if no one else is, only because this was my first time EVER using a makeup sponge to sponge on polish,... and I actually LOVE the affect. So we'll see what else I can come up with. 

Gotta love the claw pictures. This was the best picture I could get, considering it was night time when I did this. I absolutely LOVE both these polishes. CG in the City got surprisingly opaque with only 3 coats, but I kinda wish I'd used a base coat. Midtown Magic is just... amazing. Its so pretty in the bottle... I can't wait to do a full manicure with it! Again its kind of reminiscent of both Sloane and Rich in Heart, but I think there are some major differences. Whats with me buying the same color family?

Holding both the new precious additions to my collection. Forgive the lack of clean up. Its late. I want to go to bed. Lol.

Ah, so in love! 

Edited this post with a flash pic to show all the glittery goodness! I'm IN LOVE.

What do you guys think? Was this a hit or miss? I THINK it would've looked better with Minka from Zoya underneath CG in the City, but I'm not entirely sure that it would have the same affect. I'm still learning! :)
