New day, new post, new attitude, new me. Lots of things are happening right now and I've been feeling swamped and stressed. So I dislikes my last mani (as you can tell by the non-review I gave), my hair was driving me crazy, I was in a funky mood and I'm side-tracked with birthday party preparations and planning (again). So I changed my polish, chopped my hair off and have the house 90% cleaned and ready for the party. Huge sigh of relief. Now I can focus on food preparation.
On to the polish!! I was feeling quite drab and gloomy yesterday so off with the purple glitters and on with a Gothic Beauty. a-England really made some amazing, dark, vampy, gorgeous polishes for the most recent collection. I wore Jane Eyre recenlty and you can see the post here. Today I have Tess D'Urbervilles to show you. Jaw dropping-eye popping-gothic gorgeous. I know these blackened colors aren't for everyone but they are for me! Weeeeee! TD'U is a blackened base with forrest green, red-copper and golden glimmer (glitter-shimmer). It reminds me ever so slightly of Dragon, but much darker. I spent some quality time admiring my nails under my bedside lamp while cozying in for the night. I used 2 coats of TD'U for full coverage. Zero issues with application, no stainage during clean up either. I topped off with 1 later of topcoat for one very stunning mani if I do say so myself.
*Sorry for the blurry close-up shot. And it was overcast when I took pictures, but you can see that the green still shows through in the gloom and doom weather.
