How I Became a Polygamist; Ode to Nail Polish

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 4/14/2011 04:15:00 PM
If polishes were like husbands, I'd be a polygamist.  I love so many of the polishes that I use.  I think I love way more than I dislike.

Wanna see who I'm marrying this time?...
No leading up to it.  Here is my new love.
I had more compliments on this than any manicure I have done before.  I could barely remove this one.  Up close, it's not as thrilling.  Best to admire it from a great distance.  ;)

The base color is Jesse's Girl in 'Flirt'.

One of the lovely ladies at our recent nail bloggers' meet up had this in her swap box.  I wish I would have noted who I got what from. :/

When I was looking for my next polish to wear, I came across China Glaze's Crackle called 'Fault Line'.  Honestly, I didn't think it would look hot to me.  I'm happy I surprised myself. 
I took a bazillion photos of this one.
Spam samwich!!  I didn't put a top coat over 'Fault Line'.  I really liked the contrast between its matte look and the super glittery look of 'Flirt'.

Another pleasant surprise.  Another one I'll marry.

Ever have a nail polish or makeup look you've wanted to marry?  Does the entire idea of that sound utterly ridiculous?  I blame PeeWee Herman using that line.  I loved his show.

This looks really cool!
I really want to try one of the crackle nail varnishes. I love the colour of the one here:)

Flirt was from me!

And we're twins- I'm wearing Fault Line today as well!

Oh, I'm right there with you! I'd absolutely be a polygamist. LOL I love all of the marbles I've done...and the crackle polishes. And the art. And...you get the point. LOL I like the shimmer hidden under the crackle - very cool!

@Shannon Don't hesitate to nab one when you see it. I got mine at Sally's. I have seen some really wicked designs using it on YouTube tutorials. I'm very inspired!

@NiftyBa Ha ha! I owe you a thanks then for Flirt. I love it! Cool on twins of fault! ;p

@rmcandlelight Purple Crackle is yummmmy! I'm really looking forward to more OPI Shatters too. I am sooo sorry you missed the meet up. You are obligated to come to the next one, you hear?! ;p

@Megan I have always liked contradictions and contrasts in art. When I hit upon one I've done, I want my mother to put it up on the refrigerator!! Your nail work is always fun to check out. :)

I've only used Fault Line once because I didn't like how it crackled, but I love how you put it over a glitter! I agree, the matte/glitter contrast is kinda cool. :)
