I had a dream...

...that some day......No, no, no, nothing that deep. :)

I seriously went to bed thinking about 2 polishes that I would love to own, but do not have the talent nor the  resources to make, LOL!

So when I woke up, I emailed my friend Amy of Nail-Venturous Lacquers and asked her to make 2 polishes based on my descriptions.  She totally rocked it, and here they are!

First, I asked for a purple with red, gold, and purple glitter and I wanted it called "Little Red Corvette" ala Prince. O(+>

"Little Red Corvette"
2 coats, no top coat

See... I could have easily had her make a red based polish and named it this, but I was thinking more of the video, than the literal name of the song. :)  The video was purple based, and had lots of bright lights and flashes of red, that's what I was going for!


Here's the video in case you forgot what it looks like :) *swoon*

Next up was a polish for my beloved and dear Alma Mater UCLA, University of California Los Angeles :)

I wanted a polish I could wear over yellow, blue, or white that screamed the traditional UCLA colors.  I requested this one to be "Floam like", ala her famous "Floam" nail polish, nothing too flashy, just something that says "Bruin Pride"!

"Bruin 4 Life"
2 coats, no top coat

On the index finger I did 1 coat of OPI "What's with the Cattitude?" and  1 coat of "Bruin 4 Life".  On the other nails I just did 2 coats of "B4L" :)

This is the perfect blue, yellow and white non-shiny glitter, Bruin approved.

See what a difference the blue base coat makes? It's amazing how the colors do not look "greenish", and the blue and yellow POP!!!

That's what I was going for! Next time I'll do 2 coats of "B4L" over a blue, and it will be awesome!

Thank You Amy for making my Prince and Bruin dreams come true! :)

Keep it Sweet!

Pin It!
