Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Wednesday! And you know what that means, right? My post is late, so I'm sure you've seen these everywhere, because there are so many lovelies participating now, but it's Pink Wednesday! Yay!
I'd fallen off the wagon with these for the past couple of weeks (pink is daunting for me, sometimes as daunting as red) but I decided to go for a polish that I've worn before but haven't shown. I can't remember why I didn't. Maybe the pictures turned out badly? I wish I could do this polish justice but it's been miserable here for the last few days, so I did my best. Trust me when I say that it's beautiful.
My pink for this week is China Glaze Ahoy!, a beautiful magenta glass-flecked jelly. It's so beautiful. I used three coats for full opacity and colour pay-off, though it's beautiful at two as well.
Sometimes I like taking bottle pictures, and this is one of those times. This is literally what the bottle looked like while I was looking down at it at my kitchen table, getting ready to paint my nails. Excuse me while I drool.
So this is what it looks like in my kitchen with a desk lamp on it. It's actually pretty colour accurate, but I mostly like it because you can see the little flecks in it. So so pretty.
Super close up and blurry to show the flecks!
And then I figured that I should try stamping over it. I used Nicole by OPI It's Possible! and M57, obviously. Everything went well except for my middle finger - I messed something up there but that's a user error, because I still suck at Konading.
But yeah, that. I actually really like this and it got me a TON of compliments in the two hours that I was out in public today. I just need to work on my stamping!
What do you lovelies think? Do you like this colour? I sort of wish I hadn't stamped over it, just because Ahoy! is so beautiful, but I think the jelly base gives it lovely depth.
Also, you might have noticed, but I'm going to be starting to posting PR releases. I know that you guys will have seen them already, but I figured, some friends read the blog and probably don't read loads of other nail blogs, so maybe they'll see something they like! I'd also love the opportunity to talk with you lovelies about what you're looking forward to!
Okay, I just have one thing left to say. My roommate and I have been quoting parts of this to each other for the past couple days, and some of these are hilarious. I don't care if they're real or not, they still make me laugh. I need more friends like that!
Done for real, gorgeous dolls. Do you like Ahoy? What's your favourite polish from the China Glaze Anchors Away collection? I actually really loved the whole collection but this is one of the first times I can ever remember a pink being one of my favourites!
Thanks for sticking with me this long if you made it! Friday's post is going to be a big celebration because classes are ending! It means that we're going into exam time but... classes are ending and I'm really relieved. I hope to talk to some of you in the comments! I'm going back to respond to the rest of the comments from Monday's post, I was terrible and feeling bad for myself because I was feeling so gross. It's no excuse!
Thanks for reading!
