Wheel J2: Sally Hansen and Zoya Go Glittery

You know I can't go too long without glitter, so that's what I've got for Nail Wheel Wednesday today. Most of these are from Sally Hansen, with whom I've had a long relationship, starting with the clear pink Hard as Nails that was one of the first polishes I ever wore. I don't think glitter polish even existed back in those dark ages, which is just as well since it likely would have been chipped off while dialing the rotary phones common then. (Okay, I'm sounding old even to myself now...) Then when glitter polish was available, I either didn't notice it (being busy with other things, like boys) or avoided it (when I was in my "I are serious professional person" phase). I've made up for lost time, though, and now have many, many pretty glittery bottles in my stash. I'm still looking for more, though, including some of the old school Sally Hansens that were released with some of the ones I do have. I'm still hoping they'll turn up for swap or show up in my Dollar Tree (Trick or Treat did not so long ago, so there's hope).

  7. Ahhh... glitter. I'm not a glitter girl myself but I love looking at it on other people, if that makes sense. Maybe I'm still stuck in my own "I are serious professional person" phase, or maybe I just haven't the patience for glitter removal... maybe both.

  8. ah, glitter. I find this all strangely soothing.
