Good morning! Well, I hope you are having a good morning, considering that it is Mon. ;-) We are supposed to have awful weather over the next two days. Today we're supposed to have a bad ice storm, and tomorrow we are supposed to have a foot and a half of snow. Good times. I really,really hate to get out when it's icy. I'm going to head to the store in a bit to stock up, so hopefully I won't have to get out much in the bad weather.
I recently bought Sally Hansen Black Diamond at CVS for 75% off. Couldn't pass up such a great deal! :-) It's a very pretty black base with crystal colored shimmer. It also has some very fine pink and green glitter through out. I am surprised by how much I like this color. I thought it was just another black until I looked closer at it. I might have to go grab another bottle while it's still on sale. It applied very well, and I used two coats of it.
I accented my ring and thumb nails with one coat of NYX Asphalt. Asphalt is a black jelly base with fine multi colored glitter. It has red,green,silver and gold glitter. It's a pretty unique polish. I don't think I've ever seen one like it. I decided to top it off with Essie Matte About you. I LOVE this look. I think I'm going to have to do a full mani. with it soon.
First, here are a couple of pics. of the finished product. ;-)

Which version do you like best? I really like the NYX matted. :-) I hope you all have a happy Mon. and stay warm if it's supposed to be cold like it is here!
