ABC Challenge: N

Howdy, everyone!  I am so excited about today's ABC Challenge post, I can hardly stand it!  I've been waiting on some nail mail, I'd hoped it would show up yesterday because I like to my Challenge posts the night before if I can.  USPS disappointed me (yet again) and it didn't show up until today, but lemme tell ya, I am so glad I waited!  This week's letter is "N" and, as my name starts with that letter, I knew I had to do it up right. I also like to get a few letter-related themes going so let's try this one on for size:

This is my "N"ew "N"ail Pattern Boldness "N"ude jelly'd I do??  I am pleased as punch to have this beauty in my stash!  I've been eying NPB polishes for awhile now and finally decided I had to have some for my "N" post.  So, not only is it a new polish for me, it's a whole new brand for me and I'm in love!

Meet Sir Cumference And The Quadrilaterals.  He's a lovely glitter bomb chock full of turquoise, pink and fuchsia dots in two sizes and white squares in two sizes as well.  Sir sits in a lovely clear base which was a delight to apply, nothing gloppy or thick and the glitters went on super easy.  

I decided to use Sir in a jelly sandwich with 2% Milk by Wet 'n' Wild.  I started with 2 coats of 2%, followed by 2 coats of Sir and topped with another coat of 2%.  I cannot stop looking at my nails, and you know you've got a great mani when ALL the photos you take of it just sing!

I mean, look at it!  LOOK! AT! IT!  The downside is that this is my first dot glitter and, much as I feared, I'm in love with those little circles and must now own all the circles.  Any polish made with dot glitter must be mine, it's just a fact of life *sigh*

So, aside from the major hit to my wallet that is in my near future, Nail Pattern Boldness is fabulous and I will definitely be ordering more from Allison as soon as I've got the wiggle room in my budget to do so.

In other news, my Sinful Colors giveaway has ended and I'll throw a quick post announcing the winners up tonight, so be on the lookout to see if you've won!
