Mystery. I think this was part of Contrary's Holiday collection, but I'm not sure. I found it on sale at Llarowe, and I'm glad I did. I love brown polishes, and the gold shimmer in this one is so pretty. Gold and brown are so nice together.
I wanted to do some nail art, so I picked a color that I thought would help bring out that shimmer. This is Sinful Colors Zincing of You, and the beginning of Nailside's infamous cloud mani design.
I also really love blue and brown together, so I used China Glaze Adore, a metallic blue, to finish the cloud and to add some dots. I'm loving all this metallic shimmer!

Bright Night. It's actually a bit of a dark night to me, but there is a bright blue shimmer to it, which adds some really pretty depth to this polish.
I was inspired by Robin Moses' design for 'Elegant Blue Tentacles" to do this version:
I even did my right hand:
I used Barry M. Gelly in Blueberry for the 'tentacles', Barry M. Blue Moon for the dots, and added the iridescence with Sally Hansen Sea and Be Seen. Bottle shot:
