NOTD 73 – “Why so Igneous”

Today is Cynthia’s Birthday so make sure you stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday! For todays NOTD, I have a GORGEOUS topper called “Why So Igneous by Hare Polish” I first saw this swatched on Tara’s blog and just had to have it! This is a gorgeous very jelly purple with green and purple flakes. I love how toppers look so different over every color. I ended up with it over “Essie – No Place like Chrome” I cannot wait to put it over black or orange for Halloween.

While we are on the subject, with October approaching very quickly now is the time to announce that I will be doing Halloween manis all month. Halloween is my absolute favorite time of the year, I am obsessed with “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and just about anything Tim Burton for that matter, so it only seems fitting that I do a whole month of  Halloween manis!

Anyway back to the polish and how awesome it looks over different polishes, here are a few examples:

It looks gorgeous over every color, but I love it the most over the silver, it makes the silver look like a metallic purple under the topper, and simply fabulous over the black, those two are my favorite!

Since I am holding off on Halloween manis, I ended up with 2 coats of “Hare – Why So Igneous” overtop  2 coats of “Essie – No place like chrome” but here are two shots of it with one coat first.

Here is the final look with the two coats over two coats.

New Polishes!!!

Against the reviews for I decided still to try this website out for myself (becuase I am stubborn like that) My shipment came in today and these are my new lovely color choices:

From left to Right:

OPI – Mermaid Tears (Pirates of the Caribbean Collection)

OPI – Lincoln Park after Dark

OPI – Grape Set Match (Serena Williams Collection

Zoya – Faye

OPI – Honk if you Love OPI

OPI – Planks A lot (Pirates of the Caribbean Collection)

OPI – It’s My Year (Miss Universe Collection)

Unfortunately some people did not have a very good experience with this company but I have to say mine was very pleasant. Prices were good and fairly good turn around time.

I placed my order on 1/25 which was a Wednesday. I received an email from them that Sunday the 29th that my order would be shipping soon and the email also gave me a shipping tracking number. Their website says once they have approved your order they print the shipping label. Should one of your items be back ordered they will attempt to hold your order for up to 14 days to see if it comes back in stock.

Then on Feb 8th my order left their facility and it came today! Everything I ordered was there, and their prices were great. Apparently some people didn’t get all of their items they ordered, the items were replaced with other items they didn’t order or just left out all together, some people didn’t even get their orders. : ( So should you decide to try this site out, proceed with caution. My experience was good as were some others, but remember not all were good.

Anyway! I am extremely excited to try out all my new colors and work with new ideas!

**Update, so I have tested out, “Zoya-Faye” and “OPI – It’s My Year” (Miss Universe Collection) and I have to say I was very upset. The pictures online of both the bottle and painted nails as well as you can see the above pictures, make them appear to be different colors. Yea, not so much. (Pictures to come) but lets just say that both of these colors are almost identical

I have alto tried “OPI – planks a lot” with “OPI – grape set match see that post. “OPI – lincoln park after dark” has its own post now as well as “mermaid tears” the only one i have not tried yet, is “OPI – honk if you love opi” that will also have its own post when ready 🙂
