So Much for that Budget...

So, normally, I set an under $10 a bottle spending limit on my polishes, because hey- I'm a nanny not a rocket scientist. Well, my birthday is coming up and I have been splurging a bit more, like on the Butter London I posted the other day, and today's lovely polish... Deborah Lippmann's Glitter In The Air!

So far, I think GITA is well worth my $18. It's goregous. It's a sheer polish, so I prepped with SecheBase, and then did two coats of Essie Main Squeeze to build it up some. (No pictures of that, but I posted it before here.) Some other bloggers have posted that it's difficult and takes a lot of layers to get a good coat of glitter on your nail with GITA, but I only needed 2 coats, and I'm happy with the glitter ratio. Very different from when I tried to do a mani with Nicole's Love Your Life, which was such a disaster I didn't even post it. I kind of think LYL is junk, but you didn't hear that from me. ;)

Today I also recieved another DL- Some Enchanted Evening, and two polishes from a swap- SC Mint Apple and Icing Tiger's Blood. I also have another Butter London on the way! So stay tuned for all of that excitement and of course the announcement of the winners of my giveaway in just a few days!

And now for the DL Glitter In The Air mani that I will be wearing to my friend Sydney's wedding this weekend. :)
