a new year is an appropriate time for something new with your nails, right? for this month's polish days, i decided to wear my only matte glitter polish, which i've never tried out before.

so everyone's familiar with the ever-popular floam polish, right? well i never could seem to get a hold of it. it kept slipping out of my hands, so i finally gave up the hunt. but then, lo and behold, a new polish entered the scene, which looked suspiciously and amazing similar. . . . i think the polish i'm wearing (nail pattern boldness flipping out hard) has a lot more lime than floam does, but that doesn't matter much to me. there's no such thing as too green in my book :P.
i ended up layering this over mint sorbet to make it more opaque, and to save as much of flipping out hard as i can! the mint base coat turned out to be the perfect underwear for this polish, because all you can see are the lime and turquoise glitters. now i did put on 2 thick coats of top coat, because the glitters were very hungry. when it dries matte, it's pretty darn ugly lol, but i just love it shiny. one of my little students told me today that it looked like fancy frogs :P. how cute is that?
you can buy your bottle of flipping out hard here. i'm fairly certain that i paid $8 for mine, but it looks like they've upped their prices to $9 + shipping. but totally worth it, if you ask me!
