Oh, pretty much everything, you dumb bint – it’s basically why you and loverboy eat dirt at the end of the play as opposed to riding off into the Verona sunset to have lots of sex and babies.
Take this GORGEOUS holographic polish from Color Club, for instance. Somewhere between checkout and delivery I forgot that its name was Crystal Baller (baller indeed; check out that linear holo!) and I started referring to it as Blue Baller. I was legitimately crushed when I tore open my nail mail yesterday and discovered that its name is in fact Crystal Baller and I am, as always, a bit of a pervert (that came as less of a surprise.)
It’s not even like it’s a fitting name either – Crystal Baller is a polish that will never leave you wanting more (ba-dum *ching*!) Sorry, just had to slip that in on you there (hey-oh!) Seriously, just give me a sec to finish you off. THIS! Finish THIS off.
Ahem. As I was saying, Crystal Baller is a stupendous polish, and one that’s making me regret having already put together my “Best of 2015” photo collage, because it would absolutely be on there. In addition to being just a lovely shade of silver shimmer-tinged periwinkle, it applies nicely, provides completely opaque coverage in two easy coats and throws off more rainbows than a box of Lucky Charms. The holo effect is strong in this one, indeed. Just a fantastic polish. I got my bottle through Nail Polish Canada, although Color Club is a brand carried by a wide variety of nail polish stocklists. The holos do tend to fly off the shelves rather quickly, however, so shop smart, shop early. No frustrations. 😉

HAHAHAHA! Beautiful polish and an appreciated chuckle.
Thank you, and you’re welcome. This was a popular post, which has led me to deduce that the magic formula is a blisteringly crazy holo and lots of sexual innuendo. That’s sort of an odd mix, no?
If it works, it works! Haha
Your writing always makes me smile! Beautiful color! Happy Christmas! 🙂
Thank you so much – I love hearing that! 🙂 What a kind compliment. Merriest of Christmases to you, too.
Wow, I did not know what a bint was…I learned something!
Lovely holo…I just can’t really bring myself to wear them during our colder, seemingly always overcast, months…no sun to enjoy them with…. It was so dark today!! I guess the harsh office fluorescents might light up the holos….
Okay I changed my mind at midnight and did probably my quickest polish change ever…went holo, A England Sleeping Palace…
Oh my, that’s a pretty one. I love those kind of vintagey looking purples. I’ve got two new A Englands here I’m itching to jump on, including Whispering Waves, which is turquoise with purple shimmer. It’s the bomb.
I suspect that this one would still go bananas, even under fluorescent lights. Powerful holo.
Where did you get A England Whispering Waves? I saved some blog post of it but haven’t actually seen it for sale…
Nail Polish Canada.
Lucky!! I can’t seem to find the post I thought I’d saved, but whenever that was that I first saw it, I remember looking at AE’s site for stockists. At that time no US sellers had it, now one of the three does..not, of course, the one who sells all AE for $10, but the one tho sells for $11.50 . I need the Spirit of the Moors too.
I didn’t super love Sleeping Palace, it came off more brown than plum on me, maybe that is wintery light issue…or my bottle is not trustable as it came from ebay seller…
