Back again - and my all-time favorite polish

  I gave my seminar this morning!  I always get so nervous for these things.  Anyway, now that I am done fretting about that I should have more time for my poor little neglected blog, yay!  Sorry for being so absent lately, I will make it up to you!  Also, plan for giveaway winner announcement this Saturday.

  Now I wanted to share with you what is probably my favorite polish.  I don't usually have favorites of just about anything (this drives my husband crazy - he has a favorite everything), but I think if I had to choose one polish this would be it.

Outdoors, shade
Indoors, artificial light
  This is three coats of OPI Absolutely Alice, a completely gorgeous blue and gold glitter bomb.  While I credit OPI Movin' Out with starting my nail polish obsession, I credit this beauty for taking it to the next level.  After my sister Becky called this one to my attention last year, I ordered two on eBay (one for her and one for me), and loved it so much I wore it for about three weeks straight, nails and toes.  Then I started checking OPI's site for new collection release information... and then one day when I was curious about an upcoming collection on their site, I googled it - and stumbled upon this wonderful world of nail blogging, and all of the other fabulous polish brands!  So this polish is to blame for my ~400 polish stash (small compared to some, I know, but it seems huge to me)!  I have since bought a backup of this one just in case.  Love it.

With DL Boom Boom Pow
  After wearing this for a few days, I decided to spice it up for extended wear and added two coats of Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow.  I love the combo.  Unfortunately, I never got around to taking pictures with my good camera of the combo, so you will have to survive off of the iPhone shot.  But it was very pretty.

  What is your all-time favorite polish?  If you can pick... haha.  I'd love to hear! :)


  1. Loved reading this blogpost! I love that you have a polish that kind of started it all for you. For me I think it was the discovery of new brands, as I live in Europe and I found out about brands like China Glaze I was hooked. Absolutely Alice is really wonderful, it's still on my wishlist... one day! (:

  2. I can't decide!

  3. Beautiful color.. love the royal blue color. so pretty . i love ur blog btw, hope u can follow back britters89.blogspot.com

  4. Absolutely Alice is one of my favorite polishes ever. It's so beautiful! I love it layered with Boom Boom Pow! That is so cool (and it's giving me ideas...I wonder if Rococo Gold Leaf Lacquer would look good layered over Absolutely Alice, hmmm...)! :D

  5. AA is beautiful! I would have to say my favorite though would be Mad As A Hatter. I have to credit the Wonderland collection with pulling me back into the polishing world even thought I didn't get MAAH until several months after its release.
