Oh Monday, you’re here yet again….
Mondays are usually so blah, but I’m off today so I’m enjoying it 🙂
A big snow storm is coming in soon and they’re expecting us to get over a foot of snow with blizzard-like conditions. None of that sounds the least bit exciting to me, but in honor of the imminent snowfall I decided to do a NOTD with China Glaze Avalanche.
Avalanche came out in China Glaze’s Winter 2007 Ski Collection. It didn’t interest me at that time and I saw a lot of negative reviews about it being streaky, but when I was at Sally the other day I decided to grab it because it really is a pretty color. It’s a silvery/grayish/purple frost and I don’t own anything else like it.
The application was pretty smooth, and it was nearly opaque in one coat. I do see what people were saying when they complained about the streakiness though. It is streaky, but not enough to keep me from wearing it.
To bling it up a bit I decided to add a coat of NYC Starry Silver Glitter.
I freakin’ love this glitter! I owned my first bottle of it when I was 13 or 14 and I used to put it over everything. EVERYTHING. I wasn’t that great at painting my nails back then so when I’d flub a mani or smudge a nail, I’d slap this baby on top to cover it up (cuz glitter makes everything better, right?!) 🙂 I thought it was so awesome, and I rocked it like it was goin’ out of style.
That first bottle has since dried up and been discarded, so I was so elated when I spotted it in the NYC display during my last trip to Target. It brought back so many memories…It’s so funny because when I showed it to my mom she said “Wow, that bottle looks familiar. You used to use that polish all the time.”
Anyway, check out the pics. I still think it looks amazing, even 12 years later 🙂
That’s it for today! I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their week 🙂
