Channeling Lisa Frank

Oh hello, there!   Did my AMAZING manicure catch your attention?  Deservedly so.  Not because of my glorious nubbins, but because of the rare polish beauty displayed here.  Her name is "In a Roundabout Way", and this circle glitter packed beauty was created by emerging polish mastermind Glitter Guilty.  I've reviewed two of her ingenius polish subscription boxes so far, and I'm dying to see what's next.  

My bestie, over at Mommy Does her Nails, received this one in her box this month.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I HAD to have it.  So I begged and harassed Glitter Guilty to make a few more bottles - which she kindly did.  I snagged one of the last ones, saving my friendship; because, let's face it, this polish would have been MINE even if I had to go "find" it at miss Mommy's house.   Her brilliant mani, a gradient layering with it, was perfect.  So I put my own spin on it with a couple different colors for my base gradient.

The colors I used were Sinful Colors "Dream On", a neon fuchsia purple that dries matte on it's own, and Love and Beauty (forever21) "Aqua".  The ONE coat of  "In a Roundabout Way", which is a buildable denim base with large round glitters in holographic silver, blush, green and aqua and small round glitters in green and fuchsia.  As my dear momma put it when I posted the bottle on instagram..."It's so you!"
 (Sinful "Dream On", Glitter Guilty "In a roundabout way", Love and Beauty "Aqua")

Now that my friendship is safe, and my inner Lisa Frank has been released, here's a few close up shots.   The large glitters are awesome and super holographic.  All of these shots were taken outdoors with a typical Oregon overcast sky.  Gotta love that Pacific NW glory.

The formula is amazing - these round glitters have a tendency to hug the inside of the bottle, but Glitter Guilty had the forsight to pack the bottle with them - they required less fishing than my bottle of Emily de Molly's "Cosmic Forces", which is a bit of a cousin to this polish.

The sad news - this was (for the time being at least...) a limited release polish.  But with the way her creations have been going, you'll want to keep an eye on Glitter Guilty.  Or join the madness (genius?) and subscribe to her monthly sub box.  Tell her Frankie Caswell sent you.  You can yell at me later for starting your new addiction - but you won't really mean it, because there's nothing not to love here.
