Sew Psyched Gets Mistletoe Kisses

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Time for some more crappy nail pics! I’m not really a fan of the Essie bottles, I think they look utterly boring, and there are not a lot of colors that catch my attention. But Sew Psyched spiked my interest, so now I’m not an Essie virgin anymore =)

So what do I think of this polish? I had a little trouble getting it even, but that’s probably more my fault than the polish, it had a pretty nice formula. I also knew that some people have had problems with it drying slowly, so I topped it with Seche Vite after three coats, and lay low for a couple of hours before I went to bed. I didn’t find any marks the day efter.

All photos are taken inside with flash. I apologize for the creepy fingers, they’ve been quite dry lately.

The shimmer in this is barely noticable, so it looks more like a creme polish at a glance.

So I was sporting this for a few days, and was going to put on China Glaze Frosty for a Christmas party at work. Unfortunately time ran out (as it always does for me, I have nooo idea why..) so I grabbed Mistletoe Kisses and layered it on top of Sew Psyched. I think it worked pretty well!

I forgot to photograph the bottle!

It looks a little uneven but it wasn’t anything you noticed in real life, it just glittered beautifully!
