Hey guys! A quick post before my lunch, as I realised on Friday I STILL haven't shown you It's Alive, that is in my top 10 of this year's polishes, it's so fantastic. I hope I'll have time to do my top 10 of this year, I've seen it on a blog and it looked fun. :)
It's Alive is fantastic polish, the mixture of small and large glitter is awesome, great idea, China Glaze! It's from their Haunting Collection for Halloween 2011, I got Haunting too from this collection, but haven't worn it yet. *sigh* It's Alive is without a doubt the star of the collection and quite possible my favourite glitter I own. At least top 3 for sure.
See how the finer glitter sparkles on my ring finger?? Awesome!
As always a video for the glitter check. I've finally come to conclusion that blurry video does that best, the sharp one kills the glitter completely.
Anyway ... as you can see, this is a bit older mani, my nails were longer here. Lately they're really week, I need to shorten them regularly otherwise they just break. As for the formula and application, my notes tell me the formula is quite tooth paste like on this baby. Surprisingly, I don't have many China Glaze with bad formula. Still, it doesn't show on the final result, so it's all good. Oh, and only two coats, people!! Two freaking coats for glitter polish, holy crap, that's great! Two coats of TC too, to minimise the roughness and you're done. Frankly, I'd put up with a lot of work with a colour like this. It's an awesome, quite unique shade of green and it's a fantastic glitter. Right up my alley.
Oh, another thing I have to show you. My BF discovered this guy and I can't stop listening to it. Seriously, it's been on repeat since he found it. It's a mixture of the most famous tunes from Lord of the Rings, played with electric guitar.
I CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO THIS! IMO soundtrack for Lord of the Rings is one of the biggest masterpieces ever, plus a major homage to Tolkien's world, being really musical and all. Howard Shore has made Perfection with his work. My favourite tune is that from Shire, btw (the beginning of this video). :)
Thoughts on It's Alive? What's your favourite melody from Lord of the Rings (if you are such a fan you have it anyway ;))? :)
Thank you for reading!
