FRIDAY FAVORITES -- 2 Seriously Underrated Polishes!

Happy Friday, everyone! Today I'd like you to meet Wet N Wild's 'Blue Wants to be a Millionaire' and 'Hannah Pinktana'.. they are undoubtedly two of the most underrated polishes in my collection. Both are sheer, but have enough color to give a boost to any pastel polish they're layered over. They also have a lot of very fine holographic glitter that is smaller in size than ChG's 'Fairy Dust', but there's not enough glitter in them for them to be considered "holographic".

One thing  I love about 'Hannah Pinktana' is that even though it clearly leans more purple than pink, it looks fabulous layered over both pink and purple polishes! Here's an example of what I mean, using OPI's 'Sweetheart Pink', 'Hannah Pinktana' and Sinful Color's 'Verbena'.

2 coats of each polish, 1 coat of WnW on nails 2 and 4. No top coat.

I had a visitor when I was trying to take pictures this morning. It seems that my "photo spot" is also Earl's "sunbathing" spot and we both decided to use it at the same time...

See what I mean? And he totally knew he was blocking my light... Jerk.
Ahh, the joys of having pets. Anyways, here's a mani from my vault using 'BWtbaM' layered over Hard Candy's 'Sky'. Just look at what a gorgeous color that is! I was inspired by Amanda's Dandelion Nails from MaD Manis. Let me know if you want to see a tutorial on this and I'll make one!

Amanda's dandelions look much better than mine, but I wanted to try it!
Also, please excuse my cuticles. They're still recovering from the abuse they took at my nail salon. :(

Do you have any underrated polishes in your collection that need more love? If so, let me know what they are! Hope everyone has a great weekend, as always! Chris' mom is coming up and we're going out to dinner tonight, so I'm very excited about that. It's always nice to see McMom! (That's what we call her because our last name is McCullough and it differentiates her from my mom, haha!)
