Sweet Color Nail Polish - More adventures with me putting stuff that isn't meant for nails, on my nails, and a dash of Anderson Cooper. (NOTE: I did not put Anderson Cooper on my nails).

I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!    This week for the first time EVER I  forgot I had to go lead a workshop for children.  Well not really forgot so much as I thought it was a different day!  I felt horrible!  I've never done anything like this before.  I'm lucky that by chance someone extra was there and took my spot. *facepalm* Never again!

Anyways on to polish!  Today I have my first Sweet Color Polish from the Born Pretty Store.  This polish does not have a name.  It is simply listed as S037.  It also says it's eco friendly, but does not say any more than that.  So I can't say if it's 3 or 5-free.   The polish is a grape coloured, cream polish and I had it completely opaque in 3 coats.  Application was tricky though because of the brush.  It was super duper floppy and a bit hard to control.  Now I don't like them too stiff *giggle*,  but floppy is also a no no *giggle*.  There's that happy inbetween.  But keep in mind this may also be a personal preference.  I'm sure some people out there like them floppy... *giggle*.

Note:  That's not tip wear on my ring finger.  It's shrinkage from not wrapping properly.

I wore it on it's own for a day, then I added some of that temporary hair colour.  You know the one that you spray on and then you just wash out at the end of the day.  I originally bought this because I was dressing up as Anderson Cooper to go to an Anime convention.  Yes, you read that correctly.  I decided to use it for a bit of nail art and see if I could get a simple gradient effect.   I think it turned out pretty neat.  But I thought it still needed something.  So I added this silver, no name glitter I had.  Pretty pleased with how it turned out!!!

If you would like to try some sweet polishes they retail for $6.14 USD.  But you can use out 10% discount code EAL91 and get a discount!

Have you tried Sweet Color polishes?  Do you put weird things on your nails?  Or is that just me?
