So I had like two other manicures planned for the Venus Creatures thingie I was doing, but never did them. And I had a Mardi Gras manicure, and never actually took pictures of that, either. I'm sorry, guys. Truly I am.
Today's NOTD is ridiculously difficult to capture: Party Animal is a deep dark merlot-colored jelly with what I want to say is pink microglitter, but is actually probably silver encased in the polish. Whatever, it's pretty. XD It's what I wanted my franken to be, and I love how understated and elegant it is. It takes two coats.
Please click for a better idea of what the polish looks like, etc.

Far off. You can't really see the glitz in this picture, but it's there--it flashes in sunlight, but looks like a straight-up vampy jelly indoors.
I like it, it applies perfectly, it's pretty, etc., but I do have one complaint.
I wore this right before I went to bed, woke up, took a shower, and my thumbnail chipped. I am also already getting tipwear--NOT shrinkage--from wearing this polish. It's been less than a day. Luckily I spend quite a bit of time on nail maintenance and I polish frequently, but I imagine that this would be the primary reason why most people wouldn't find Party Animal too awesome. D:
That said, I have basically two swatches up for you before I do something um, interesting. For Lent I gave up my varieties of nail polish. During the forty days up till Easter, birthday excepted, I am to use four colors only. No exceptions. Except my birthday.
Since I do have a blog to maintain, I'm expecting to throw in a LOT of nail art. A LOT. (If I don't, you have every right to yell at me.) Also, what do you think? Should frankening with the four bottles be allowed, or no?
<3 till next time!
