New Year, New Habits

Goodness me, it's been a while since I've updated. I talk a big game about You Can Blog It, but unfortunately when it comes to taking my own advice I've been more than a little slack. So let's ring in the new year with something quick and simple shall we?

I only got one nail polish for Christmas, probably because I already have several hundred and people get a little...intimidated trying to figure out what to get me. My amazing Mr. Reluctant Femme still managed to pull something super exciting out of the hat for my lone polish present though - one of the beautiful multichromes from US indie Polish Me Silly!

This one is called Vixen, and in the bottle you can see quite a dramatic shift from purple, to mauve, to red, to gold.

With some duo or multichromes you can see the shift on each nail, but unfortunately this wasn't the case with Vixen. If you move your hand around under different light though, the shift is quite apparent.

These swatches are all two coats over black, and the formula was delightfully pigmented. Some older multichromes like the ones from Ludurana tend to be on the thin side, so it was great to get one with such an obvious shift that didn't require a million coats.

How was your Christmas/Hannukah/Festive Season? Did you get any exciting polishes?
