Elixir Lacquers (partial) Lov-A-Bully Collection!

I found this in my blog posts and somehow forgot to post about it!  I bought three of the Lov-A-Bully polishes from Elixir Lacquers.  10% of the proceeds go to the Atlanta Bully Rescue.  I am a huge fan of pit bulls. (You will see mine later on in the post.)  The polishes I bought from Elixir Lacquers are Blue Coat, Smokey Coat, and Red Nose.
Blue Coat is named for the very popular blue-coated pit bulls.  I used two coats and it went on smoothly.  It is a royal blue with a very light scattering of silver holo.
I was somewhat able to get the holo to come out in this photo.
Smokey Coat is a deep gunmetal grey with scattered holo.  I used two to three coats for opacity.
In the sun, you can see a light holo showing through and I was able to capture it here.
Here is my baby, Emily. She is a pit bull, share-pei, lab mix.  She is also 10-1/2 years old and spoiled rotten!  She is holding onto the third polish for me here, because it is named for her!
Red Nose was a must have for me since it reminded me of my Emily.  It is a packed glitter polish, made up of copper-orange glitters in a clear base.  These first two pictures are three coats on its own.  It layers fairly well on its own if you wait between coats.
I forgot to mention that it is a holo glitter as well!  And the holo in this is amazing!  It loves to show itself off. Kind of like Emily.

I also layered it over Alter Ego Penny Pincher. Penny Pincher is a copper, satin-finish polish, and was perfect as the base coat.
I only used one coat of Red Nose over Penny Pincher.

I thought I would show you my new tattoo since it also pertains to this post. I got a pit bull paw print behind my ear!
