Alchemy On Alchemy

So September is here, and that means fall is just around the corner!  Fall is sort of my favourite season!  And I say sort of because I love the first half of fall, it's perfect sweater weather!  I also love the second half of spring!  It's like the first half of fall but in reverse.  I love the season of sweater :)

Now the polish.  This is Sally Hansen Salon Alchemy.  It is a beautiful deep plum purple filled with pink and copper shimmer.  Although the copper isn't all that visible it's still super pretty!  It only took two coats to reach full opacity.  It's super vampy and sexy.  Which is perfect for fall, for those who like to stay on trend.  I have no idea how much these retail for as I bought this on sale for $2.

The minute I bought this polish I knew I needed to do alchemical symbol symbol nails.  There was a bunch of symbols I wanted to use but i had a hard time cutting it down.  So then I just decided to go with five of the seven planetary metals(Seven metals are associated with the seven classical planets, and seven deities, all figuring heavily in alchemical symbolism).  I used gold microbeads from the craft store, and the bled which made me sad. Do you know what the symbols I used represent?  And do you know of microbeads that don't bleed?


Do you ever get inspired by the name of your polish?  What is your favourite season?

  5. The shade is gorgeous, I love it! :-) About the manicure: it is perfect!! :-)
    (it's not my intention to "spam", but your manicure reminded me of one of my old manicures, if you have few minutes take a look http://raggio-di-luna-nails.blogspot.it/2012/02/zodiac.html)
    P.S. also my micro beads are like yours, so I'm still searching for something that doesn't "bleed" :-)
