Whoops! I forgot...

that today was a holiday...

   My friend Ellen asked if I was doing a mani for St. Paddy's and I just couldn't come up with anything I liked so instead I'll show you some amazing polishes that I received from the awesome Stephanie at Imperfectly Painted. Both brands are unknown to me but this always excites me because you never know where your next favorite will come from!

I'll start with Savina's Morning Glory. Stephanie featured this color not too long ago on her blog. Of course being a Grey I couldn't help but love it.. AND THEEEENN she mention that not only is it Grey... It is a jelly. Yes, you read right... A Grey jelly. So, I commented on the post about how much I loved the color and without missing a beat she Tweeted me to see if I would like a bottle for myself (She knows I have a serious Grey fetish). I am eternally grateful to her for getting this beauty to me (lol) and for being so nice to me for no reason other than I liked the color (like, Like like the color)! And this is why beauty bloggers are amazing! Anywhoooooo..
  Be still my heart... A Grey jelly... This is like someone took Zoya's Caitlin, made it a jelly and gave it a shot of Blue to give it depth. The formula on this was great, I find that jellies are pretty easy to apply IMO. I am so madly in love with this Color it's not even funny. It's squishy, shiny and translucent, but not at the same time. After Three coats it is perfectly opaque and there is no VNL. For some reason when I looked up at my rack Flurry Up! was demanding I layered it over this beauty and so I did... And I'm so glad I listened!

She also included this hawtness in there. This is Daring Imagination's Vampire Red. This is one of the few times I enjoy being so pale! These colors really pop on my skin and who doesn't love a hawt vampy mani? The formula is great on this polish. It is thin but not runny and it is very well pigmented. It actually has quite a bloody look to it. I only needed Two coats for evenness and the end result is an awesome deep Reddish- Maroon that is extremely sexy.

  I love these two shades, especially Morning Glory. Again, a big huge thank you to Stephanie for sending these two amazing polishes and making my collection even more awesome!
