Sparkly Goodness

When I first re-started my love affair with nail polish, I spent quite a bit of time on various blogs trying to find what I was looking for. At that point, I didn't know what I was looking for. Until I found holographic polish. I was instantly in love. Of course I couldn't find the brand I was lusting for (China Glaze OMG collection) and I wasn't about to pony up for Nfu Oh (yet), so I was on the hunt. Eventually I found out that Milani also has a holo collection. Milani? We have that everywhere! Off to Target I went. And what did I find? The entire holo collection. Decisions, decisions. After much deliberation, I landed on HiTech; a beautiful spring lime green with lots of sparkle and holo goodness. Usually I do NOT go for green polish - especially lime green! But I had to make an exception for this. I did this NOTW the middle of April. The formula was a little took at least 3 coats to cover all the bald spots. And the wear? Well, it wasn't the greatest. I think it chipped after three days. However, all the attention and compliments my nails got were worth the short wear. Once I go through the other colors in my collection, this will be at the top of my list to wear again. These pictures don't do the rainbow holo justice - very rainbow-y in person.

Now what am I looking for? The perfect: super shiny top coat, berry creme, bright/neon pink that lasts and doesn't apply flat and cuticle remover.

What color do YOU want to see next? If I don't have it, I might just have to go find it!

I'm doing a new recipe tomorrow night for dinner. If it's any good, I'll post the recipe with pics (of course) for you. AND...don't forget to invite your peeps to check out my blog - giveaway will happen when I reach 15 followers. Only 4 more to go!

It's such a pretty color. LOVE the holo- but too bad the formulation isn't better.
