Hard Candy Blue Foil

 I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Years Eve, I stayed home, ate cheese Nacho's and watched Tosh O. - Fun times.

 I have been wearing this for 3 days now, 2 coats of Naturistic's Super Chrome Blue Spark, and 3 coats of Hard Candy Blue Foil. I didn't think these had names, but Scrangie called this Blue Foil - so I guess that's the name. This was a sheer blue jelly with lovely flakes that looks nice on it's own, but i layered it over a very similar base polish.

I used a matte top coat, that ended up drying to a satin finish instead of matte. The brush on this mini sucked wasn't that great, combined with the tiny brush handle, poor lighting and me standing instead of sitting I had a difficult time painting my nails....... I cant wait to have my NP room all sorted out so I can get back to normal.

Also, remember my mani from last year ( lol ) I found a comparable polish in my stash, Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Co-Co a Go-Go. I would say that the Sally Hansen polish is the boring, plain cousin to this fabulous brown shimmery number.  I stopped in at Shoppers Drug Mart & Walmart to see if any of these polish sets were on sale but both stores were CLEANED OUT  of any Christmas-type gift sets

Very pretty manicure!! Those two polishes are so close, and yet just different enough.
