Happy New Year!

This is the post where I apologize profusely about the state of my cuticles and skin in general.  Every winter I quite literally shed my skin a few times and I am in the midst of one of those times.  So I'm very aware that they look horrid (and this is an improvement on what it has been),  and yes, I probably should wait until my shed is over before posting pictures but who knows when that will be.  So be gentle with me.
I'm actually thinking of taking a bit of a break until after the new year so don't be surprised if you don't hear from me for a few days.  I'll be back with bells on and details on my 200 follower giveaway.  
 This is three fairly thick coats of China Glaze's Fireside Glow.  This is an amazing mixture of fine copper and holographic glitter. 
 The weather here has been so overcast I couldn't get the sun to coordinate with the times when I had my camera, these are all taken under a "natural" lamp which does so not do this polish justice.
 The application on this was really great, while it didn't exactly flow onto the nail, the coverage was very even and built up really well.
 I love how it's a more subtle glitter effect with an almost neutral look where most of the glitters that have come out this season have had a lot more contrast.
Above is the closest I could get to a money shot to show off the beautiful glow this polish has.  So that's it for this one folks, I hope you have a wonderful New Year.  Be safe and I'll see you in 2012!
