The Makers Dozen, August 2019: Alter Ego - Magenta Mystery Snail

Good morning!  Guys, I am literally waiting bated breath, trying to keep my sanity together as the end of Summer comes up.  My kids aren't getting with the regularly scheduled program of hitting the sack early, falling in to the standard routines.  And they are going berserk, like how some kids get even more wild when they are exhausted at the end of the night instead of just falling asleep.  I think I need the routine also.  I am staying up entirely too late every night, eating horribly and not working out. So while I ride out the remnants of this storm I figured I'd try to blog for a little "serenity now" moment.  

Makers Dozen is back again, the August theme is Tropical Marine Life!  And like past months, colors are assigned to the makers.  Alter Ego got magenta and she drew inspiration from the magenta mystery snail - this is really a thing.  You can pick up your bottle of Magenta Mystery Snail through the month of August OR until the 40 bottle limit is reached.  It is $10 and you can save 20% using my code My Nail Polish Obsession.  Let's jump in to the post and learn a little more about this polish.

Magenta Mystery Snail was inspired by the sea creature of the same name.  These little snails have shells that are different colors depending on the amount of light they receive. They are popular additions to fish tanks because they eat up all the algae.  Magenta Mystery Snail is a deep magenta jelly full of magenta micro glitters.  I am always a fan of same tone ingredients in a polish and this is super gorgeous.  It was a bit on the sheer/thin side with the first coat but it built up well in 3 coats.  I finished with topcoat.
*side note - I did have a bit of pink staining on my nails upon removal. use a good base coat*
