Alphubel + Melted Snowman

This post if full of all kinds of awesome.  I'm referring to the polishes of course, but I'm also talking about a really amazing bunch of ladies that I am very lucky to call my friends.  This particular mani is a swap polish and a RAOK (random act of kindness) polish.  So it's very special for me.

I'll start with the undies, Elevation Polish Alphubel.  I received this in a swap from Hazel, one of the sweetest gals I know!  Alphubel is a gorgeous light blue with a shimmer that is just a shade darker blue.  It's very light and delicate.  The first coat was slightly streaky, but it built up nicely.  I used 3 coats.

The icing on the cake is Ninja Polish Melted Snowman.  I had been waiting and waiting for this one to become available.  Then I decided to wait for Black Friday sales to see if I could snag it at a discount price.  Missed it.  Then I thought I'd get it on Cyber Monday, no such luck.  Then it became quite an obsessed after item.  I silently stalked and stalked the Ninja page to no avail.  Then the other day a package showed up on my doorstep from Ninja Polish!!!  My friends Gina from My Dirty Little Obsessions and Michelle from Ehmkay Nails had secretly snagged me a bottle!  I just about passed out from the kindness of my friends and the gorgeousness of the polish!  

So here it is…the white buffalo…I mean Melted Snowman!  Clear base with shimmery holo particles, multiple sizes of matte white hexs (body), orange (nose) and brown bars (arms), and smaller sized black hexs (eyes, buttons).  I love it!  Absolutely love it!  Perfect winter glitter, perfect name!  The glitter lay flat and a good amount came out with each brush dip.  I had to do a little digging for the largest white hexs but it was no bother.  I used 2 coats and finished it off with a layer of top coat.  

What do you think?  Looks like a melted snowman?  I think so!  You can purchase Elevation Polish here (the store is open right now), and Ninja Polish here.  Don't forget to follow the Elevation blog and Ninja Polish Facebook page!
