This first swatch is of the two coats of Revlon Gumdrop and one coat of Sally Hansen HD LCD in the direct sunlight, and the one below is in the shade somewhat. Not my favorite nail polish mix but I do kind of love it. I have to get this girly bug a bit more often I think.
So tell me what you think. Is this a good spring or summer mani? Would you wear it?

For this swatch I used three coats of the polish which ended up being lumpy due to the gloopy nature of the polish. This one is called Kendall On The Katwalk, and they better sweep after she goes down it. The glitter in this one flaked off even worse then on the other polish in this post and was rough as well. I needed three coats of this one to get it to look half way decent. The Seche Vita improved the look and stopped the flaking for this polish as well. But the worst of it, after all that wanting and waiting and work, the polishes chipped off. 90 % of it was gone in an hour. Very displeased with this collection!

I was given this Pin for my birthday by my parents. Panda was a childhood nickname for me and I have collected a few over the years, mostly from my parents, LOL. I don't remember the gram weight on this pin but it is a heavy sucker. This panda pin is made of precious sterling silver with a bit of black enamel. I haven't worn it yet but it will probably be worn in my hair as most are, though I have a black shearling coat that may get adorned with it, Hmmm.

This is Midnight Magic by Cover Girl Boundless Colors. Though this line of Cover Girl nail polish doesn't seem to be too terribly popular, this particular polish seems to be on many wish lists. It was sold out every time I looked for it for months. Finally, I got my nails on it, or the other way around LOL, and it was worth the wait. I must say before I rave, it had a tendency to bubble on me and I don't shake my polish bottles. See bubble on ring finger. :(
That being said, I love this shade. It is a velvety dark slate grey black and is still very shimmery. This first coat was a little streaky but evened out on the second. I used 3 coats anyway as so many polishes look better that way and it has become habit for me, but I could have gotten away with two. The formula was better then I expected due to experience with others in this particular cover girl line. It was thick but not overly so, and not watery and thin like others in the line. For the most part Midnight Magic went on very well.
This is a quick shot of the polish with Seche Vita top coat. Usually this top coat adds to the shine and sparkle in a nail polish, though here it almost seems to dull it a bit. Still a stunning color. Midnight Magic looks amazing by itself or with other polishes layered over it. This is easily one of my fav's.
