Follow up first swatch post!

I just got taking off my Lacquistries, and wanted something simple to get me through the next couple days. I just received a Birthday Club package in the mail including one of my biggest lemmings: Zoya Harley. Now, you don't know yet, but I have a tiny little diva-esque Russian Blue named Harlie, pictured here, with her peeps :)

Harley is a light grey creme with a subtle shimmer, it matches the glow of my darlings coat perfectly, and I've been wanting it since I found out she had a polish named after her. I used a swatch from Polish Addict because I forgot to take a picture before I put the glitter on. On to the mani!

This is Candies and Sprinkles from Sweet Fairy Boutique on Etsy. I just discovered her, but MAN she has some fabulous glitters. I snagged two, this one and Block Party.

Isn't the combination AMAZING?!

This is one coat of Candies and Sprinkles over two THICK coats of Zoya Harley. Candies and Sprinkles is a thin mix of chartreuse, teal, periwinkle, purple, pink and aqua hexes and bar glitters. (Speaking of bar glitter, I just noticed that stray pink one on my thumb, doh!) The concentration isn't as much as a Dollish Polish or Lacquistry (for an indie reference) so you would need 2 good coats to achieve similar glitter density on the nail, but the glitters spread easily, so that shouldn't be an issue. 

This was just a quickie post as I'm on my way out, before I go, ONE MORE of Harlie, looking extremely guilty sitting on a guitar amp so dangerously close to the bottom of my stash wall. I have GOT to move that amp. Also pictured is the corner of my granny tapestry covered vanity stool :)

Later Gators!
