Above & Below: A close-up of the glitter and colors is shown above, and below is with a coat of China Glaze Matte Magic.
Good morning, fellow nail polish addicts! This is my 300th post today and I'd like to thank all of you for being such loyal readers. I've met some wonderful people through my blog, and your thoughtful comments are very much appreciated. Today's nail of the day is another selection from the China Glaze Glitter collection, Cleopatra. It looks similar to Medallion, which I still need to try, but Cleopatra is a deeper gold, whereas Medallion looks to be a lighter and brighter gold. Cleopatra is filled with multi-colored and gold glitter, and gives off an extreme amount of dazzling sparkle. I used 3 coats, but it dried quickly. I topped it off with a coat of China Glaze Matte Magic and although it's not that evident in the photos, it gave it a look of hammered gold while still retaining the colored sparkles. I've only got 2 more of the glitters left to show you...that is, until 2 more arrive, hopefully today. I'm going to pick up some mixing balls at Walmart today, because I want to try something with Cloud Nine. With any luck, I'll post a picture of that one later today, along with my Franken idea for it.

You could win a $25.00 Victoria Nail Supply gift certificate and a selection of older or hard to find polishes from VNS. I did ask Yen to include one of my favorite retired Essie shades, Viva La Vespa, but I'm leaving the other color choices up to her. She did tell me they received Mango Madness (another of the Glitters) yesterday, so that's now available on their site.
