Finally, A New Post!

I'm sorry for such a delay between posts. I guess I let the holidays get in the way. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of my Christmas mani. I don't know how I forgot, but I did. I'll make up a little for that with this post. I have two recent manicures to show. No nail art this time, just pretty polishes.  Here is the first:

This is Grape Soda by Liquid Lacquer. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a thing for purples so my purchase of this polish didn't surprise anyone. I love the shade of purple of this polish and the white glitters in it look just like the bubbles in a bottle of soda. I used 3 coats of polish to get the bright purple you see in the pictures. And because it's a jelly base, the white glitters on the earlier coats show through nicely. I received lots of comments from my friends on this polish.
The next polish is from one of my recent purchases from LynBDesigns.

This polish is from her "Doctor Who" collection. I'm not a Doctor Who fan, I know what it is and I've seen some scenes from the show, but I don't know all the ins and outs of it. I do know that I loved the way this polish looked in her Etsy store so I had to purchase it. I wasn't disappointed. I used 2 coats for the above pictures with no undies. I love the holographic glitter in it along with the occasional moon glitter. The polish is more sparkly in person than in the pictures but you can see the difference with the flash.
I got plenty of polishes for Christmas so I have plenty to try out. Plus, Valentine's Day is coming up. I hope to get some fun Valentine's Day nail art done that I will have to make sure I post on the blog.
