Hey There Polished People!!
I’m so glad to be back!! I have been having some internet problems so it’s been hard for me to post, plus I’ve been a little busy so that hasn’t helped the posting schedule either. It feels good to be posting again though- here’s hoping me internet holds out.
How have you all been? My brother and his wife just bought a house, so that’s exciting for me! I should correct myself though- he didn’t BUY it YET… he just put in an offer that was accepted. He still has inspections, appraisals, financial finalizations, etc to go through. Good luck to him on that, haha. When my husband and I bought our house a while ago we were quite shocked and dismayed that buying a house isn’t like they show it on TV. On all these House Hunters and other real estate shows they show a couple looking at several houses, the buyers put an offer in on the house, it gets accepted and the real estate agent is like, “Congratulations! You just bought your first house!!!” and then it’s like fast-forward to them moving in. Wellllllllll….. it don’t work that way! ;p Getting your offer accepted is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Hopefully everything will go smoothly for my brother and his wife. Keep your fingers crossed for them. I’m going to see the house later today and I’m excited to see it.
Today I have for you a polish that was so sweetly included for free in my order of Silly Lily polish a few weeks back. I ordered Silly Lily Jello, a Jello mini, and a Tequila Sunset mini, and received those plus a New Year’s Eve mini and some cute little beaded earrings! If you read this- Thanks Lily! Shall we have a look at NYE? I think so!
Silly Lily New Year’s Eve
Silly Lily New Year’s Eve is a mixture of star, crescent moon and small gold/holographic glitter in a clear base. It’s perfect for layering and is a really fun and festive polish. I would like to see this layered over a dark midnight blue next.
Like any chunky in-your-face glitter, Silly Lily New Year’s Eve required some dabbing to get things exactly where I wanted them. I think I’ll try thinning the base in the future before I use it again because it was a little thick and goopy, but I’m sure it has to be to suspend that glitter.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
This was a surprise bonus polish from Silly Lily and actually I think it’s one of my favorites! I really love the goldy/holographic glitter and one thing that I am always skeptical of with big fun-shaped glitter like this is their ability to lay flat. Other star glitter I have never lays smooth and always catch on my hair and stuff, but these laid perfectly smooth. When you put all that together- I give this a Yes, please!
Have you tried any Silly Lily polishes? You can find this particular polish here on her Silly Lily Polish store on Etsy. Do you mind dabbing on glitters like this or do you have some special application technique that you are willing to share? I just dab away which sometimes can create bubbles in the clear base if I mess around too much. Oh well- it’s all worth it for the glitter, right!? As always, thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!
