Nubar Sky Sparkle & Other News

    Hello, Dear Reader!

    My layering kick continues... This time it's Nubar Sky Sparkle over Nubar Mali-Blue.  If you recall, Sky Sparkle was the one from that Nubar Sparkles Collection that wasn't opaque, and I finally found the right polish to use under it.  I had Mali-Blue out from a recent skittles manicure, and noticed it was about the same color, so I tried it and it worked.  This is two coats of Mali-Blue (which dries really, really fast) topped with two coats of Sky Sparkle.  It's under artificial light, and much more impressive than the picture shows.

    On to the other news... I have a few things for you.  I've been saving up swatch pictures for almost a week because on Sephora's site, they just got in do-it-yourself Minx nail coverings (here), and I've got some on the way.  I want to test-drive a set for a week and see how they hold up.  Also on Sephora's site are a few new glitter top coats, as well as the Illamasqua pastels I showed you not long ago.

    There's more good news, too.  Yesterday I discovered that sparkling*nails and ebay seller r93 (who I bought from years ago with no issues) seem to be clearing out their OPI stock - the prices on hard to find polishes have dropped dramatically, many at or below retail.  They're definitely worth a look.

    That's the update for now, Dear Reader.  Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
