SoFlaJo Teal Me a Bedtime Story

Good evening all!  Sorry for going MIA for a while there...I tried to keep up with posts but that flu bug I caught really had me down and out.  It's been 3 weeks and I am about 90% back to my regular self.  The good news is that I'm back with some posts to share and I hope you like them!  Tonight's post features a brand new SoFlaJo polish from the recently released Just Love Her Collection!

This is Teal Me A Bedtime Story.  I love the name of this polish because as a mom to a bunch of little's this is definitely something I am asked every night, and I sure do love cuddling up for story time with my babies.  Teal Me A Bedtime Story is described as "iridescent hexs, holo silver stars and blue moons" in a "sheer teal base that builds up in 3 easy coats."  Jody, Miss SoFlaJo herself, also recommends trying it over black for extra sparkle!  Well I've already seen swatches of it alone (check out the gorgeous pictures at Pointless Cafe) so I decided to try layering it over some different colors.  Teal Me A Bedtime Story surprised me with it's versatility!  The teal base color is sheer enough that it adds a lovely touch of shimmer and blue depth to other colors.  I did find the formula a tad thin.  This did cause me to dig for the glitters a little.  But as you can see I still got plenty on my nails and am happy with the outcome.  Other than that the formula was easy to use and application was great.

This first set of pictures shows 2 coats of Teal Me A Bedtime Story over 2 layers of Barry M Navy.  I used 1 layer of topcoat to finish.
