Hits Poseidon with Nina Ultra Pro Glamrock French Tips!

I would first like to welcome all of my new readers!  Hi everyone!  Thank you for thinking me worthy of your time!  I am a little stunned to have doubled my followers in less than two days. I had better start thinking of my 100 follower giveaway! Wow. That will be my first giveaway!
Well, let's get on with it, shall we?
Something I like to do with my manicures is to try to refresh them and to stretch the manicure out with some creativity.  With my new Hits Poseidon polish, I wasn't quite ready to take it off, so I took Nina Ultra Pro Glamrock and did a french tip.  Glamrock was one of my first glitter polishes.  It is a dense, charcoal glitter that only needs one coat and I love it!
It was another cloudy day, so no holo to show you, but the glitter makes up for that!
I love the light blue with the dark charcoal grey tip. It gives a classy, yet edgy look!
Remember my thumb with the black base under Poseidon? Here it is with Glamrock on the tip!
I am pretty impatient and you can see the effects of that with the nick in my polish. :o(
I had to resort to the lighting at my desk to get the holo to come out, hence the lobster hands. But at least you can see the holo!
Aahhh, much better!  Holo prettiness AND no lobster hands!
While I am still a glitter girl at heart, the holos are reeling me in!  I even ordered three of the new A-England holos and they are sitting on my desk at this moment!

If you want to buy a Hits polish or A-England, you can buy them on Leah's website: Llarowe. Click here to go there!  And thank you all for following me!

Thanks Sarah! Wow, I had no idea that people Didn't like Frenches! I have always loved the classic look, but am more inclined to go edgy! I also love the vintage half-moon manicure!

LOL at lobster hands!

OTT Lite bulbs are supposed to give you true color. You can get the bulbs for around $14 at Michael's, and for oly around $7 if you use one of their 50% off coupons. I know when I try to photograph holos I have to use certain lighting situations (depending on the holo) to get a decent picture, since flash ruins the photos.
