What I wore on Valentine's Day Part 2

Yesterday I showed you what I wore on my left hand for Valentine's Day so today I'm going to show you my right hand... because I'm silly and like to wear different manicures :P

Just like my left hand, I first applied 3 coats of Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl on all fingers except my thumb and pinkie. On those, I applied 3 coats of Wet N Wild How I Met Your Magenta. On my thumb and pinkie, I applied JENsations Key To My Heart. I actually had to do my thumb twice. I had read somewhere recently that with glitters you should dab them on so you get the glitters you want in large amounts. The result with this polish was a big mess that did not dry. What worked best was to do several thin coats. I did have to fish for the glitters I wanted.

I love How I Met Your Magenta.. mostly because I actually do have a friend named Magenta and this polish always reminds me of her. The color is very pretty and you can't tell from the pictures, but they have lots of shimmer to them.

I'm not sure how I feel about Key to My Heart... it's a very different polish than what I'm used to but it's a bit chaotic and almost reminds me of a glitter train wreck on my nails. Not exactly in a bad way. It's just a bit more chaotic than what I'm used to I suppose. This polish is filled with matte glitters in many different sizes, shapes and colors: white bar glitter, white hexagon glitters and white square glitters, black heart, black hexagon glitters and black bar glitter. You probably can't see these too well in my pictures, but there are also pink hexagon, square and heart glitters! I didn't even know there where pink hearts in there until I applied it.

I'm definitely going to have to apply this again some time over another color to see what I think. I'm sort of thinking this might be a good polish to try as a jelly sandwich. I'll have to see sometime :)

You can find JENsations on Facebook and Etsy

edit: I just wanted to mention that this was a real pain to remove! Lots and lots of acetone, but I had to use several cotton balls just for those two fingers :( Maybe next time I'll use just one coat..
