Whew, it has totally been one of those weeks. Between work, school, family to do's and what not I've been getting more and more behind. If I haven't responded to your comment I'm sorry, I'm getting to that, thanks for being patient with me, I appreciate all my wonderful readers. So anyway, do you remember reading fairy tales where the hero or heroine would be gazing into a deep, dark, mysterious pool hidden somewhere deep in the forest? In my imagination these pools were never slimy or gross, rather they were full of fairy light and secrets, hidden just below the surface.
I am totally, absolutly in love with I Juggle...Men because it gives that kind of dimension and mystery to nail polish. It's from the Femme de Cirque collection that's out right now. Which is funny to me because the swatches I've seen of it over the rest of the colors of the collection are so pale you can hardly see it. It's when you add it to a nice dark color that you get the full impact. Ladies, run, don't walk and get this top coat! I swear you won't regret it.
I applied two coats of it over two coats of OPI's black (I should have done three, I noticed some streaks) and had to sit and gaze at my nails for the next bit. Depending on the kind of light it radiates a beautiful blue or purple glow. Blue in brighter light, purple in low or shadows. When my boyfriend first saw it, his comment was "That's a really deep purple polish." (I love it when he notices my nails.) He had to grab my hand for a closer inspection when I told him it was black...with a top coat.
As a side note, I applied Seche Vite top coat which I've noticed is getting thicker and got my first bit of noticeable tip shrinkage as you probably noticed. I was rather bummed about that but it's holding up quite well even though I've started my spring cleaning and am being pretty rough with my nails.
Do you think you'll pick up I Juggle...Men and add it to your collection? Maybe you have already, do you love it?
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading and I do enjoy your comments. Until next time, take care!
