It's Delovely, the beat of my Heart

Here is a polish I absolutely LOVE.  It's Delovely by Deborah Lippmann is a vibrant coral creme that looks fantastic with my skin tone.  It applies beautifully, just like you would expect from a Lippmann polish.  The wear is also great, I can get up to a week without chipping or tipwear.

Deborah Lippmann It's Delovely, two coats.

To jazz it up I added "one" coat of Step 2 The Beat Of My <3 from the Nicole by OPI Justin Bieber collection.  I say "one" in quotes because I had to work really hard to get the heart glitter on my nails.  Usually the brush just doesn't want to pick it up.

Gah!  So cute, I love it.  I wore this for Valentine's week and the pictures finally made it onto my computer when I uploaded photos from my birthday last week.  That was a fun time!   My Birthday manicure was Hard Candy sky, a baby blue with a subtle shimmer, of course topped it with Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday.  My nails really popped against my pink party dress!  Alright since you asked, here's some pictures.

the besties.

OPI Extra-va-vaganza

I don't think I've shown you Bring on the Bling yet, but I loved it so much I wanted to try out another of the OPI Burlesque glitters.  Extra-va-vaganza is an orange-leaning multi colored glitter.  I layered one coat over two coats of OPI You Don't Know Jaques! Suede.  Extra-va-vaganza isn't completely opaque on its own, so putting it over a brown gave it a nice depth.  I think it also helped the glitter adhere better and made it slightly easier to take off.

Extra-va-vaganza doesn't make my heart flutter the same way Bring on the Bling does, but it is a fun polish and I think it will be great for layering.
