Believe Me!

Good morning, Kitschies!  We're head long in to another work week.  I had derby practice last night.  Well, actually, it was skills test night and while I didn't expect to pass (yet), I did much better this time 'round.  I made it about 2/3 of the way through this time.  I was doing really well until I took a hit - I wasn't ready and I tumbled back and ended up with my right skate under my right hip and now I have a large bruise (that's probably only going to get larger) about 3" in diameter in the exact shape of my wheel.  How my right skate wheels ended up almost to my butt, I'll never know.  Either way, I stopped the skills test at that point and was happy I had made it that far.  I did much better than I expected I would, especially for not skating for the last two weeks.  There's a test every month, so I'm hoping to pass in early 2012.

Enough of that.  On to the sparklies!

I've seen these polishes all over the blogs and I finally found them about 2 weeks ago.  I picked up two but ended up giving one to Wendi because I had something really similar to it already.   I had just chopped down all my nails because I was getting some bad breaks, so I used my new polish to console myself.

This is WnW Believe Me, It's Real.  I knew it's a bit on the sheer side, so I started with LA Colors Static Electricity as a base and then used two coats of Believe Me on top.

The bling in this polish is pretty enough to overlook the fact that it eats top coat - two coats and still a bit bumpy (I use ChG Fast Forward).

I love macro shots!  Believe Me is little blue glitter suspended in a sheer blue base with larger purple hex glitter thrown in for fun.  The contrast of the purple against the blue makes it really pop.  So pretty!!

I'm throwing this over-exposed pic in just for fun.  I was having a hard time capturing the purple (who doesn't?!) and got this kinda cool pic. 

The draw back to these beauties?  They're a pain in the buttocks (kinda like the pain I have today!) to remove.  You definitely need to use the foil or felt method for removal. 

Have you picked up any of these glitter bomb WnW polishes?  Which is *your* favorite?

And I think that is why I don't paint my nails too often- too lazy to do the removal process :)

The look awesome though.

Sorry about the bruise but so cool you are getting close!

Looks great, I really like the purple sparklies on top. ♥

I hope your bruise heals fast!

I admit I bought them all. I am weak when it comes to the sparklies.

Ugghh sorry about your butt. I know all about butt pain right now. =)
I love the blue, so pretty.

Any suggestions for Essie products? I have a rewards coupon for one Essie polish and I can't decide.
