Icey Grape

Hello ladies,

Before I start my post today, I just want to give you all a big thank you. Today when I signed in to blogger, my follower count reached 200! It means so much to me that you read, comment and come back to my blog day after day. Thank you so much for your support, I never thought this blog would take off, but I am very happy it did!

Today I have a Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish I purchased when it first came out, and only got around to wearing it now. This is Purple Gala.

I actually saw this polish in store before I ever heard of the fall/winter collection online at all! That was a first. Soon enough though it became the most popular out of the whole collection, and with geat cause. Just look at the bottle alone, its a purple gold duochrome with foily/glassflecked shimmer.

On the nails it's even better. It looks great in every light setting but I think it looks the coolest in low light, overcast weather or indirect light.

Application was the same as similar polishes, think Orly's cosmic collection. I actually purchased this when I couldn't find the Cosmix I wanted... I ended up getting them though, so it's all good ;) I used 3 coats, the last was to even everything out, but I do suggest 3 thin to medium coats for full opacity.

Wow, I uploaded a lot of pictures, I'm running out of things to say here! lol Below are some photos of the polish with the camera flash. you get more of a shimmer look with a camera flash o direct sunlight, but I still think it looks pretty. For some reason it reminds me of a grape Popsicle... but with golden fairy dust sprinkled on top or something lol

Well I hope you enjoyed this polish as much as I have. Please remember to check out the Contest Bundle Moster is holding from now on to April 20th and vote for your favorite designs!
