|Happy Birthday Coda!! 3yrs|
So first up I wore Barry M - Dusky Mauve yesterday (does anyone else want to call it Dusty?! LOL)! I just LOVE it!! It is considered a dupe to Chanel Paradoxal, but since I don't have it for you to compare, this is a great comparison post by Lacquerized!
This is 2 coats of Dusky Mauve with Poshe top coat. I am thrilled to finally own a version of this!! And the Barry M formula is perfect!! It is a gorgeous sort of plum/brown/dark taupe color with that amazing surprise of purple shimmer! I absolutely love that hidden shimmer!!
You can purchase Barry M from Harlow and Co. for $7 and shipping is free anywhere for orders over $50!! I received this in a swap from my good friend, Saira! You can check out her awesome blog, The Girl With the Green Nails.
After work yesterday, I was going to my friend Jessica's for a girls night, and decided to add some spice to this! I picked Models Own Disco Heaven to layer over top. I love the way it turned out! Disco Heaven is a gorgeous square gold glitter with hexagons that reflect blue/purple and even in some lights as teal! So much fun!
Models Own can also be purchased from Harlow and Co. for $10 each. I did receive this from Saira too! I am so spoiled ;-) Thank you again Saira!
Notice how the sun still brings out the purple shimmer through the glitter - gotta love that! I used 1 coat of Disco Heaven with 1 coat of Seche Vite. I'm honestly not even sure why I was grabbing different top coats, haha, I just use what's ever in front of me ;-)
And here are a couple zoomed in pics for you guys. I know they aren't the best quality, but you get the idea! It really shows off the little squares!! :-D
So I'm heading out to enjoy the day...LOVE having a day off!! (which is because my work offers a personal vacation day near your birthday...hehe). So next week Friday is my actual birthday. Should I do a fun birthday mani? I will need to think of something then...
I hope you all have a great day!! I'm hoping I do too :-D
