OPI Gone Gonzo!

i can't believe it had to rain this morning! (as we say in the South, it was a real gully washer) so i missed out on horseback riding today. i guess that's better than being out riding and getting caught in a downpour! my dog Jemima and i both really dislike being wet... since she's an inside dog, she rarely needs a bath... thank goodness, because she's really a nightmare in the tub! :)

i decided to recycle yesterday's mani (China Glaze Blue Iguana) and add a glitter topcoat. OPI Gone Gonzo! looks perfect over  it! this glitter is very simple, comprised only of small light blue glitter and scattered large silver hex glitter pieces. over a blue base, it looked opaque in two thick coats! it dries fairly smooth, so i didn't even add a finishing topcoat over it. it does have a slight texture to it, so if you like your nails really smooth i would definitely go ahead with Seche Vite! i can't believe how much it sparkles inside on such a dreary day... which means it's crazy beautiful out in the sun!

the blue glitter is richer color than the camera could capture, it's really lovely! and the name is too cute... one of my favorite shows when i was little was Muppet Babies... did any of you watch that? Ria :)


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
