So, today is the big iPad 2 launch. I haven't even started getting dressed for work, and I'm already annoyed. I decided to wear some glittery nail polish, to make myself feel a little happier. I chose Golden Seahorse by LA Splash, something I found at Ulta the other week.
This polish is so beautiful. It's a sea foam colored base, with gold glitter in it. I used two coats, and one coat of Seche Vite. You can tell even with the topcoat, it's still a gritty polish. I actually sort of like the texture - I can't stop running my fingers over my nails. The application was surprisingly nice. I thought with all that gritty glitter, it was going to be thick and gloopy, but it wasn't at all. It also dried quickly.
For a really great closeup of the glitter, check out this post by Lacquer Laine.
This color reminds me of sunlight reflecting on the water, buried treasure, mermaids... basically, Golden Seahorse is a great name for this. I tried to find fun mermaid tattoo flash to show, but after the first page of awful mermaid drawings and even worse mermaid tattoos, I gave up. There's only so much one can take. Why do people with terrible tattoos post them on the Internet?!
I hope this stuff doesn't start chipping right away though. My OPI Ya'll Come Back Ya Hear? manicure chipped significantly on the second day, which is weird because OPIs usually last a long time on me. Anyone else experience lots of chipping with the sorbets?
It feels a bit weird to be complaining about iPad 2s, chipped nail polish, and bad tattoos given what's happening in Japan right now. Japan will be in my thoughts today.
