purple pizzazz

i've seriously been trying to write this post for almost a month. i wore this polish back when i first bought it, when it first came out idk when. a million months ago?? and i'm just NOW finally finishing the pictures and uploading yadda yadda. it's been awful hard for me to blog recently. i get on a good rhythm and then i miss one day and i'm SCREWED again haha. so i apologize for this wishy-washy on/off again relationship i'm starting to have with my blogging. it's not you, it's me haha.

sally hansen's new polishes are really kickin if you ask me. this is one of my favorite colors in the Xtreme Wear line, purple pizzazz. it's a pretty rich purple jelly with a billion sparkles. this is three coats and i still had VNL (visible nail line) in most lights, but that doesn't bother me. if it bothers you, just use a ridge-filling base coat or a light nude polish as your first layer and it should help with opacity.  i don't actually love how this polish wears over time though, which isn't usually a problem for me as I re-paint almost daily, but this guy i had on like four days. it ended up looking dingy and kinda lackluster pretty quickly. i mattified it and i liked it way better. so i'll have to remember that if i want to wear it for more than one day.
flash, less blue IRL
lamp light, accurate color
sun, third day wear
mattified w/ Essie's Matte About You
my totally gangsta purple aviators - very appropriate for this post, no?
