♥ Ardene Rock'in Purple'♥

4 coats of Ardene Rock'in Purple and 1 coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat

This polish from Ardene needed 4 coats, it dried fast and it dried shiny! This is 4 coats with 1 coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat. I was hoping that there would be some hidden micro shimmer in this polish but it is just a plain medium purple shimmer. I love this shade and I love the shimmer.

I will definitely layer this polish next time -  even though I didn't feel like it was a big deal to do 4 coats. The shimmery-ness of this polish was a surprise and I didn't expect to like it so much. I wore this for 3 1/2 days!

Ardene Rock'in Purple

Does anyone else remember these, below? they came in a 3 pack and each individual glue had it's own nozzle that you twisted on to open the glue.... they were very handy to have around, and if I recall they were a great glue and a good price, too!

I found it in an old, oooooold suitcase this weekend. I would put the individual glue and its nozzle into a sealed container to cart around with me. I packed it for a trip and I guess I forgot to take it out when I returned home..... I forgot all about these cute little mini-glues. Now I just put my opened glue ( Nailene glue, that is ) into a tiny zip lock bag and tote that around with me.... just in case. My pinky nail did pop off at a family BBQ this weekend and everyone was searching around for it..... I found it 3 hrs later -  turns out it was stuck in top of my sandal ! That - was funny♥

Here are a few more photos- its amazing how different this polish looks in different kinds of lighting. As you can see by the small polish smear on the cap below, I still have a hard time with these thicker knobby caps.... Ill never stop complaining about it - becuase even though these drive me nutz I keep buying them.

That's a very pretty purple indeed. It looks so shiny :D

That really is a lovely purple! I like the way it shifts from warm to cool, depending.

I'm also cracking up at you finding your nail in your sandal! That's really something I would do. I was photoing a set of nail tips a couple of days ago for my blog, doing the usual shots... turn your hand this way, turn your hand that way, and then out of the blue...

*SPROING* My thumbnail literally SHOT off my thumb and landed halfway across the room! I have NO idea what That was about, but I laughed my butt off at it! I figured that was a good sign that the photo session was over.

I don't wear artificial nails, but that little glue is pretty cute. That is funny that your pinky popped off. I love this purple too.

♥ Kristen - Thanks, I'll check out your blog and add you.

♥ Cel - Thanks it is really pretty.

♥ Laynie - hahahahaa I always loose one pushing clothes around on the racks at stores and they usually 'pop' off this way.

♥ Soari - Thanks!

♥ Danica - Thank you - isn't that tiny glue adorable?

♥ NLovesMakeup01 - These polish's are okay, the purple is a dupe for the new NYC Prince street, and the blue and green have dupes out though I am sure.
