ORLY Velvet Rope + A Green Franken

I discovered that Bed, Bath and Beyond has a big cosmetics section!  Wooo!  I restrained myself and only bought one polish, Orly Velvet Rope. It’s a medium purple shimmer with flecks of silver glitter, giving it a nice sparkle without the all-out glamour of a full glitter polish. To me it looks very regal.

Application was smooth and mess-free.  This is two coats.

And, here is a franken I made that turned out better than I expected.  It’s a combination of Sinful Colors San Francisco (which I reviewed last post), American Apparel Hunter (reviewed here), and Fantasy Makers glitter confetti, a fine holographic glitter.  I named her Emerald Slippers, because the color reminded me of Oz, and this is the color Dorothy’s slippers would be if they were green!  This is two coats.  The glitter made for a slightly gritty surface but one coat of Seche Vite fixed that.
