Midnight Magic and Nicole

I loved Midnight Magic by Cover Girl Boundless Colors, I just had to play with it a little bit. This is Midnight Magic with Nicole....Spotted by OPI in the the Nicole line of polishes. I am one of those people that is obsessed with the night sky and this application reminds me a lot of the night sky when it is clear black and full of brightly colored stars. In this swatch I used three coats of Midnight Magic, two coats of Nicole....Spotted and one coat of Seche Vita.

Grey's Anatomy

I have wanted this polish since it first came out and it has always been sold out, another popular nail polish for this year. There have been so many. I finally got a hold of it as you can see and I am glad that I did. It is a great duochrome nail polish with colors of grey purple and green in it. It would be a great polish for spring but I enjoy the contrast it would have with the snow in the winter. This is two coats of Grey's Anatomy with one coat of my favorite Seche Vita top coat. It shines to high heaven with this particular top coat on it.

London Blue Ring

When I saw this ring I absolutely had to have it. I had never really seen London Blue Topaz before and I fell in love instantly. This ring is one of only a few that I have actually bought for myself, but like I said, I had to have it. The center stone is a whopping two and a half carats, wow. On each side of the ring are a small round rhodalite garnet, madiera citrine, and a peridot. all under.10 carats. the metal is platinum over sterling silver. This ring just shines. I wear it often with my blue jeans actually. One would think that this is a dress up ring but I like it with my casual clothes and moods. I get lots of comments on it when i wear it out and about, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Though my wedding set still steals the show, LOL!

Midnight Magic

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.

I Have Failed My Readers!!

As I said, I have failed my readers. I do sincerely apologize and a reason. I have a 1 month old as of 2 days ago. My pregnancy was horrible and I spent a good deal of it in the hospital. Baby is out and we are both now doing well. I will be back to posting more often though it will be an uphill battle as I finish my recovery and get organized again. Right before I learned my husband and I were having a new bundle of joy, I began making plans to expand my blog to accommodate almost all aspects of a woman's life. I am still hashing out the details and scaling it back a bit. Hope you all enjoy the expansion!Our New Bundle Of Joy!!
