Since nothing was  posted on the NPLC Facebook page last week and I made that post (unofficially week 101) This will be titled week 101 as well….20141209_193445_resized

With the new year coming in the next few days (and a time for celebrations) I’m happy that this week’s nail polish pick reminds me (slightly of fireworks) of fun and festive times. This week I’m wearing China’s Glaze’s Boo-Gie Down.

One of the reason’s why I’m so excited about this nail polish was because I got it on “Super Clearance” at Ulta; what’s “Super Clearance” you ask? Well the sales price was $0.97 as opposed to the normal $7.50… SUPER CLEARANCE! I’m sorry, I’m a frugal gal and when you see China Glazes for that price not only are you forced to get them (even if you are on a no buy) but you have to love it no matter what it looks like based on principal.

Now based on the name I would automatically assume that this is a Halloween polish (going to do polish research now………) Yep, it is… this polish is apart of China Glaze’s 2013 Monster’s Ball Collection (maybe they should consider renaming this polish and putting it in another collection; Sinful Colors does it all the time… This polish is chocked full of glitter, everything from Marco glitters to bar glitters … in in there all secured in a clear base. I will say that when I say this Halloween was the furthest thing from my mind, actually the very first thing I thought when I saw this was, “this would be the perfect polish for a Saint’s fan (which I am not one…. Go Pack Go!!!).

And yes I know that it’s a topper, but I’m wearing it alone, much like last week… look at me living on the 20141209_193012_resizededge…Now this could be for various reasons, it could be the fact that the nail polish is a little bit older (maybe why it’s on clearance… excuse me super clearance) or the fact that this polish is packed full of glitter but it was a tad bit difficult to apply this the way I normally do, so I was forced to use the “spackle” method… I simply had to tab it one until my nail was covered.

One of the reasons why I wanted to try this one on bare nails was partly I wanted to get  a feel for what this polish could do and the second one was, I had the hardest time trying to figure out what color to use for a base polish, I wanted to wear something where all the minute glitters on the polish would show;it wasn’t until after the polish was applied that I realized that it right look really good with one of my teal polishes (I guess I have to save that for next time)

This week Tsuki graciously allowed me to photograph her with the nail polish right as she woke, I think she’s excited that this is the last pick of the year.20141210_191944_resized

I loved it’s Despite the issues that I ha applying this polish I still really loved it, this nail polish now goes into a special category of nail polish I own called Celebration Polishes, and based on that  and the extraordinary amount of glitter in this bottle I can’t help but give it a favorable score. So Boo-Gie Down get’s an 8 out of 10!

China Glaze Boo-Gie Down retails for $7.50

Until Next Time….

20141111_200552Apparently it’s been several weeks since I participated in NPLC, Lots of things are happening, and with the cold weather my hands have been super dry, and after I removed polish I got 3 breaks one after the other (two happened on the same day) so this is the last time you’ll see me with longer nails for a while… I’m working with my winter nubs for the moment. Now let’s get to this week’s pick. Week 100… wow it’s a milestone and I think this weeks pick is the perfect celebratory polish.

Twilight Twinkles is a  clear base with gold shards, squares and holographic-ish strips. Thick the perfect gold thick and chunky glitter. It’s one of eight colors in the Holi-Dazzled Collection (Two are new; Galax-Sea and Twilight Twinkles, while the reaming polish come from other collections… seriously? )

Usually with solid color glitters I tend to pair them with black or white nail polish for that full effect of the polish can be seen, and honestly I love the effect that the black has with this polish, not to say that it can’t look good with any other polish (I have also found that this topper looks great with all of the polishes in this collection). I  When I first saw this polish thought of New Years Eve, then I remembered the name and thought, I guess it’s great for the entire holiday season (and beyond) and it sort of reminds me of lights on a Christmas tree… which I guess ties into the name.20141111_200608

I paired this polish with Wet N Wild Black Crème as the base nail polish, the topper is packed with glitter and I was preparing myself for major clumping  but when I applied the polish, it didn’t happen, the application was really smoothe and after two coats it dried quickly and I didn’t have any issues with all of the glitter not.  The only issue I has was that I felt like there were some part of my nail that had more glitter than others., but other than that there was no issues at all.

Not necessarily a work friendly polish, but this one is defiantly one you can pull out for fun times or when you need a little sparkle. This is defiantly one of those polishes that I would categorize as a show stopper, you know the kind of polish that everyone notices and you just have to look at it when it’s on your nails. This is generally around the time where I tell you to if there is a dupe, but honestly a great versatile look for under 2 bucks… you can’t beat that..

This week Tsuki was more into the blanket than the nail polish, and to prove it she sat on the polish for most of the time she was lounging, does that mean she approved of this weeks pick? Who knows but I loved it, I love the versatility, the big gold chunks … EVERYTHING and that’s why this polish get’s a perfect score. A 10 out of 10!

Sinful Color’s Twilight Twinkles retails for $1.99.
