Good morning dears! I'm just going to take Monday nice and easy, if that means taking a nap and lounging with the baby all morning, so be it! Especially since it's forecasted to rain pretty much all day - and not a light mist, a good steady rain. But I can at least work on the last few swatches I need to do to be 100% caught up AND share a post with you. Cynthia comes up with great polishes for her fan group and January is no exception. Today I have Alter Ego's January Polish of the Month, Life's A Beach. This beautifully cheerful polish is available now and is $9.50. The price goes up to $10 soon (tomorrow, I believe . And don't forget you can save 20% using my code My Nail Polish Obsession. Now let's check out Life's A Beach.
Life's A Beach is a perfectly Summery polish! It gives off a lovely glow that almost makes me feel warm by looking at it! It's a burnt orange metallic shade full of holo shimmer and green metallic holo glitters. Very reminiscent of that burning summer sunset orange. The glitters in mine were stuck to the bottle so I only got a few out to show on my nails, but probably with some upside down time and rigorous shaking, they'd float more freely in the polish. Otherwise I felt the formula and application were both great. 2 coats used for full coverage (this is very opaque) and topcoat to finish.
