Love, love, love. Is it pink? Is it coral? I don’t know, but I love it.
Pretty accurate swatch. It is much brighter IRL though. This is a very bright color. It’s so ME! I’m really liking the consistency of the Diamond polishes – I like runnier polishes personally.
The flash picture is color accurate, the no flash picture is not at all.
On another note, I am going back to my old lightbox. These pictures are rotten!

Whew, I’ve broken my polish losing streak! I was getting sick of sounding so negative in every post, so I pulled out a polish I’d been saving because I knew I’d love the color. Well, OK, I actually decided to wear it because it exactly matched one of the colors in my outfit today, but that doesn’t sound as good. I don’t EVER match my polish to anything I’m wearing, ever, but today it just seemed right! I wonder if most people do though?
This is a medium, almost hot pink, with a bit of coral to it. It’s a really nice color, but the application wasn’t as great. Well, more the consistency, really. I had to use four coats and I still had VNL, so it’s a high maintenance polish – it takes FOREVER to let four coats of polish dry enough to apply the next coat! This has a lot of very subtle shimmer.
I have been sooo boring lately with my nails! I haven’t done a bit of Konading or nail art, or anything except slapping on polish! I am going to try hard to find the time to do some nail art this weekend.

So, to continue on the animal print theme, I have made leopard nails, inspired by a ton of bloggers lately:
Nail Na Nails
And surely more, this has been everywhere lately, but these are the ones I can find right now.
I tried out my Art Deco black nail art polish for this one, and it worked OK – I oddly had the same problem as I had with the Konad polish: adding a topcoat made it streak BADLY. I know why the Konad polish does that, but this polish dries pretty quickly! Are you just not able to use topcoats with nail art, or what? Anyway, I stopped adding topcoat after the first two nails so that I could get some pictures.
Finally, I found a use for my semi-ugly China Glaze V polish, which I only got because it was on clearance at Sally’s!
It’s nighttime, so no sunlight shots, sadly.

This is a little too orange for me, I think. It’s a nice light orange/coral color that is totally me, but it has gold shimmer, which ruins it for me a little.
I tried to capture the gold shimmer!
