Deborah Lippmann Forget You

    Good afternoon, Dear Reader!

    Today I changed my polish to Deborah Lippmann Forget You, the black jelly with multicolored glitter from the Get This Party Started set.  It is, in a word, incredible, and it's these gems that make be keep suffering through the Lippmanns that make me sad.

    The black base of Forget You is perfect - two coats made it totally opaque but it still shows the glitter beautifully.  The glitter is like that in Happy Birthday, and such happy colors in  a black base is a great contrast.  I think it's different that Happy Birthday over black because the glitter in the first coat kind of peeks out through the base, which you'll see in the close picture of the glitter.

    For the manicure, I used base coat, two coats of Forget You, and SpaRitual Tout de Suite because it was handy, but it's thinner that would be ideal for a glitter.  I might add another coat of top coat to make it perfectly smooth, but I think most people would find it to be smooth enough with just the one coat of top coat.  After it had a little time to dry, I took pictures, so here's Forget You on a cloudy day.

    I think this is awesome. Happy Birthday always reminded me of a clown holding a bunch of colored balloons for some reason, so Forget You seems more like this guy:

    Evil Clown
    Evil Clown!

    It's like a happy polish with a macabre sense of humor, so I love it.  That's Forget You and just about all I have to tell you about today, Dear Reader, so until next time, love and nail polish to you!
