I Couldn't Leave Well Enough Alone, Part II

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 9/08/2010 07:32:00 PM
A couple of posts back, I had Part I of 'not leaving well enough alone'.  However, I have to admit, when I did plop down a sparkly top coat here, it did make me feel I had improved on it.  Remember 'Home Improvement'?  Tim never could leave well enough alone either. 

For me, it's just a wickedly expensive fun hobby. 

Here's Confetti's 'Debutante'...
I'm going to call this a soft, gold taupe.  Very subdue and very office appropriate.  It's shimmery but not screaming.  I used three coats to make it Solid Gold. There's 2 coats of Seche Clear and 1 Coat of Seche Vite.  I'm sorta 'meh' about this color.  It's OK, but my tastes usually are to have my fingernails SCREAM!!!

Confetti's is a new brand, MBA Beauty, released at CVS.  Here's the scoop on why you may want to get some of MBA Beauty's polishes before they are GONE! 

I didn't wait...
If you see a color more than once, that means it's gonna be in a giveaway.  One for you, one for me.

I'm brazen enough to think I can do better.  Now, I did put on my thinking cap that not only lets me think outside of the box, but also color inside the lines.  If this color is golden, why not try a silver glitter????  Hmmmmm...I DID just get a new topcoat from Revlon.  They released a few new colors recently along with accenting glitter topcoats for...well, not leaving well enough alone!  YES!!  (I have learned, with lots and lots of practice, to justify about anything I do.)  Here's 'Belle' and she is a silver cutie pie.

Top photo is with the sunny window, last one is outside in sunny (read: hot) Florida.  How sad that the silver glitter and holographic larger glitter doesn't show up on the nails in the photos.  It does a lot more in real life.

Albeit some serious wear in the top photo (that looks really ugl-le), you can see some of the reflections.  And last, a photo of the bottle.  Ahhh, see what I mean!

And, even if I couldn't leave well enough alone, I feel I made a somewhat boring color a bit more spunky.

When you saw 'Belle,' did your mind start reeling as to what other polishes you could use this with?  Which ones?

oooh my momma bought me Belle and I lurrrrve it. I didn't try it on Silver yet (it's lil partner friend polish) but it would look sweet over a dark almost black red.
I also have Galaxy and Star to play with. I loves me glitter top coats :)

Belle is an awesome glittery top coat! Glitter always livens up any boring color, doesn't it?!

That top coat looks like it has so much potential. But there's not much there on your tips. Bummer!
