Well I don't know about you, but my Facebook News Feed is FILLED with comment after comment about HOW GOOD the new live action Beauty and the Beast is. Last month, an Alamo Drafthouse opened in a nearby city, and since it's pretty much the best theater ever, I rounded up some friends and we're having a Friends Night Out tomorrow to go see the movie in 3D.
Now, I've had a rough week (I was due in October but we lost the child on Tuesday due to placenta accreta) so I really needed a pick me up and this beauty has been sitting on my desk for a bit and I knew it would be perfect. If you hadn't heard, Beauty and The Beast teamed up with Gelish and Morgan Taylor for a special collection that collaborates with the movie. The Morgan Taylor side is a 3 creme, 3 shimmer collection with a special overlay coat in a pink/gold patina that doubles as easy nail art. However for today, I chose to go simply with The Last Petal, a wine colored shimmer.
I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat. I could have easily used one coat of polish because this is a highly pigmented lacquer, but I went with two just to be safe. My nails are still very thin and short during this recovery from acrylics in December but I think by this time next month, they may be all better and I can start growing them out again. Although I must say, it is SO much easier to type with nubby nails. Love live the nubs!
This color practically glows on its own. It does tend to lean a little more purple in person but I am not complaining because I love wine purple. While not totally unique, I think it flatters all people. I'm also super impressed with the opacity of the polish and hope to make it a few days with this nicely on my nails.
