Sally Hansen complete Salon Manicure Fairy Teal under OPI Servin' Up Sparkle

went to Target today... man, i love Target! i don't know what it is about that place, i just love going there. part of it probably is that it has a Pizza Hut Express and a Starbucks inside. shopping, Pizza Hut, Starbucks... i mean, does it get better than that?!

today's manicure is Sally Hansen complete Salon Manicure Fairy Teal under OPI Servin' Up Sparkle. FT is another perfectly formulated polish, two buttery coats. the actual color is darker than it appears in the bottle, it's slightly more rich and deep. i think part of the reason colors look different on me is that i am SO pale! the most accurate part of the swatchie is down the middle of the nail, to get the truest color i needed to darken the image... which somehow turned the sides more green? and my skin color all orangey again? i'm not so good at editing yet :( it dried quite shiny on its own, but i finished it with Seche Vite because... it makes everything even better! i think the swatchie speaks for itself. SUS is my favorite glitter of all time. it's comprised of sparse holographic large hex glitter and loads of tiny holo round glitter in a clear base. it amps up every manicure and i grab for whenever i feel the need to take things up a notch... or stretch a manicure another day! i use only one thick coat and finish the whole thing off with Seche Vite... of course! this polish looks identical to China Glaze 'Techno' from the swatches i've seen, i will definitely be passing on that one. to see for yourself, click here, also just check out her amazing blog :: Ommorphia Beauty Bar... i promise you won't be disappointed!!

one coat Seche Base, two coats FT, one coat SV.

one coat SUS, one coat SV.

as always, gotta show that holo!

the color under the glitter looks different because to really show the glitter, it didn't want to show FT true to color. *sigh* sorries!

i LOVE this mani! i actually took it off and reapplied it the next week... that's super rare. Ria :)
