Hey, hey baby

Good morning!

Can you believe this? I'm actually posting! Shit just got real, yo.
I actually tried to post a couple of weeks ago but Blogger misbehaved BIG time and I was quite angry.
Not that I had much to post. I had several spectacular manicure fails, only picked up a couple of new polishes and in general was a miserable, stressed out screechy harridan. Basically, the difference was that my nails didn't look as good.
Rather than get bogged down in a litany of complaints, I have a new polish to show you.

I went to Roseburg to visit my in-laws a few weeks ago and took advantage of the time to go shopping with my sister-in-law. There is not a Kmart in the Eugene-Springfield metro anymore. You have to go north to Albany or south to Roseburg to find one. I wanted to go because I know Kmart sells Milani and I desperately wanted a Lip Flash pencil. (Got it and adore it!) While I was there, I spied a Jordana display and I was so happy! Can't find Jordana anywhere in Eugene either so this was fabulous.

Jordana Purple Glam
Three coats, no base or top

This is a great red based purple jelly with blue shimmer and loads of holo glitter. The glitter itself is a mix of bar and fine. The glitter tends to apply randomly ensuring nails are not uniform. The more coats, the better but it's not too hard to coax some other bits off the brush without ruining your mani. 


Blurry to show the sparkly!

What I find most interesting about this is how the glitter gets covered with each coat. It looks totally suspended but it's fab shiny, holo goodness is not subdued or diminished. The blue shimmer is brilliant because it helps with opacity and gives the polish an almost metallic look.
This applies nicely and dries fast. It is interesting that it dries satiny, I really did not anticipate that!

This being my first Jordana, and trying it without expectation, I am so pleased. This is making me want to drive the extra hour to Roseburg more often! 

That does it for now. I have a few more things coming up because I am not afraid to show when I fuck up royally. Trust me, some of these are just not right. Anyway...I will be playing with some other nail art today because tomorrow is the season opener of Duck football! So stay tuned for the first Duck day mani of the season.

P.S. As much as I love football, it makes me sad to see the end of summer. Do not want cold weather!!


  1. Nice polish! I love purple and glitter so will have to look for this one.

  2. Welcome back! I was hoping you hadn't disappeared for good. Looking forward to more posts! :D


Thank you for coming by! I deeply appreciate each comment and I do my best to respond in a timely fashion.
