Random Saturday Spam!

Happy caturday my lovelies! 

  So today continues my random spammy series. I am cleaning out folders like a fool! I know it might sound crazy or weird lol, but this is what I need to do to get myself back in gear. I have a ridiculous amount of goals for this new year. There are many -a- things I want to get accomplished. I am SOO excited!! Many good things are coming! 
Anyhow! Saturday Spam after the jump!

Illamasqua Viridan Graces my Tips Once More

This color...

....is the bomb. And that is all there is to it. I wish my pictures could do this better justice but you guys get the idea right. Ugh... I wish I could come up with the right words to describe how I feel about Viridian. This color came from the fall 2010 Art of Darkness Collection and is my one and only Illamasqua. I pretty much treasure this lol. I have only worn it once and had been dying to work my way back to it.
No Sun today :(
So this amazing Peacock Green shimmer made me want to use the Peacock stamp on plate BM212. As my stamping color I used CG OMG for a subtle holo look. I didn't want to overwhelm the base color with decorations because Viridian is art all by itself. This is Two coats, no top coat. 
And there you have the Epic WIN that is this color. I have this thing against double digit priced polishes but for this one I made an exception because it is so special and just beautiful.

All hail Viridian!

Illamasqua Viridian

 Praise the polish gods!!!

  ...As they have smiled upon me and decided I was worthy of Illamasqua's Viridian from their Art of Darkness collection!! I have been lemming this since the swatches started showing up online and it is finally mine and I shall cherish it for all time haha!
  Viridian is a beyond amazing Dark Hunter Green- Teal with a sublime shimmer. To me, Greens don't get any better than this! The formula is absolute perfection, the texture reminds me of the texture of Seche Vite. Viridian could easily be a one coater, for this mani I used Two coats since that is my OCD number. The finish is smooth, shiny and perfect. I couldn't believe the pigmentation on this polish, especially for the color and finish, just excellent. I absolutely love that it remains Green regardless of lighting, we all know how much of a disappointment dark Greens can be in dim light. The price tag is a little steep for me at $14 but I had to have this polish as a part of my collection and I'm so glad that the color lived up to my hype! Mega Epic WIN!

Did all my lovelies have a wonderful Christmas?
