Don't Smile Too Hard

So, even though I felt like I got punched in the jaw yesterday, I was very much over the black and had to do something, during my half hour of consciousness to make it better...

The solution, Nail Junkie by Sinful Colors-- I know, I know, I used this one before, but over black it was like a brand new color.Over black, the blue sparkle in a blue-tinted clear coat, came out green and gold. It's harder to see in the second pick, but it looks very festive. Almost Christmasy. It hurts to smile, and even moreso yesterday, but the combination brought a grin to my mind if not my face.

I've reviewed both formulas before, so I guess the lesson here is to try your sparkles over new colors, because here a fun blue bubble-gum color came out dark green and gold and worked for a change of pace on hump day.

What do you think?

What's your favorite glitter to play with?

PS: I will need to work with what I've got for the next 23 days. I went to order my Zoya green friday haul and was told by my mother not to, which means I know one thing I am getting for Christmas, but it also means unless I decide to buy myself some presents, it is unlikely you will just be seeing new combinations and some swatches of new makeup until then.

And so versatile for 1.88-- I wish I loved O Love You that much-- but it was buy one get one, so I guess I can say it way still totally worth it
