Nothing to Disclose
My dearest readers – I apologize for my absence. We had a charity event this weekend, plus work is just crazy busy right now but I did not forget you! In the upcoming weeks I have some pretty major assignments but I’m hoping to still keep you supplied with pretty pictures and nail art!
So I don’t think its any secret. I love me some My Ten Friends. I have serious fangirl issues for this brand and since I saw it last year I have been actively trying (and failing) to get my hot little hands on a bottle of Starry Night. It’s based on the Van Gogh painting, the one that I have loved since I was teenager! I even bought my dadda a Starry Night tie for Father’s Day one year…seriously I *needed* this polish.
Then…I got so lucky…I hit a restock and managed to get it! So let me show you the awesomeness that is Starry Night!
Look at that!!! Does it not look like that is the painting come to life on my nails??!! The lovely blue shimmery base is packed with black and yellow and blue glitters of varying shapes and sizes.
As I suspected this polish is amazing in every sense of the word! It’s lovely on the nail and is a breeze to apply. I didn’t have any problem with the glitter at all, it was easy to get out of the bottle and spread nicely on the nail. It is a touch sheer but it is easily buildable. The glitter is a little chunky so it does need a glitter smoothing top coat. This picture shows three thin coats plus topcoats.
Polishes Used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; My Ten Friends – Starry Night; Carpe Noctem Cosmetics – Glitterslayer; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl Topcoat
So as per usual I will provide you all the details that you need to stalk your own My Ten Friends prey! So many gorgeous polishes…and ooooo I saw on her facebook JUST TODAY that there is an upcoming SPRING RELEASE. Sorry for yelling I got a little excited. I’m ready and waiting for it.

Hello my adoring public!! Too much? Overkill? Perhaps…
This Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday weekend I took part in the timeless tradition of purchasing things. Luckily several lovely indie polish makers indulged me and other indie polish addicts with amazing sales and promotions! Some of them also had major restocks. Today I’m going to talk about a polish that I woke up in the middle of the night for! Yes, seriously, the restock was set for MIDNIGHT PST which is THREE IN THE MORNING where I am, yes I set my alarm, yes I was sad that I only scored one polish…but trust me when I say I’ll be setting my alarm any time there’s a restock and I have disposable funds!
So you’re wondering aren’t you? You want to know what this amazing, sleep-killing, super polish is don’t you? Well I’m going to tell you in t-minus 2 seconds! Allow me to show you My Ten Friends (*SQUEE*) Precog!
O.M.G. Readers. OHEMGEE! Just LOOK at it! I can barely contain my excitement. In fact I’ve gone and looked at these pictures several times since I changed my manicure. I may or may not have taken the bottle out of the polish drawer several times to just gaze at it as well…I’ll never tell! Ok details are coming. Precog is a sky blue jelly based polish with a VERY strong gold shimmer throughout. Add to the mix a plethora of metallic and holographic teal and gold and silver glitters in a myriad of sizes! Standouts are the small metallic teal hexes and large holographic gold hexes. Sparkle city!
I tried to catch that gold shimmer in my pictures because in my opinion that is one of the things that makes this polish so very unique and beautiful! The formula and ease of application were out of this world…(hahahaha see what I did there?) Pictures show two easy coats with no fishing for glitter, no dragging or streakiness and it reached opacity extremely easily. I probably could have gotten away with one coat!
I cannot wait to get more My Ten Friends nail polishes and I urge you to follow their facebook page and check out their website to keep up to date on all the happenings and to pick yourself up a bottle of their magic polish as well!
