OPI - Midnight Blue Glitter

Hi friends! This polish is called Midnight Blue Glitter by OPI. It is a vintage polish from 2004, it came out in the Tuxedo collection. It has a sheer charcoal watery base and is full of dark grey, blue, silver, and teal glitter flakes. This polish is borrowed from my bestie, Mickelle. I wasn't convinced of its beauty until I saw some swatches that have been popping up recently on my reading list from fellow bloggers. I thought at first it was a little boring but the subtle duochrome of the glitter is really beautiful, I love that turquoise pop that comes out from certain angles.

This polish was pretty sheer, pictured here is three coats. I have heard this is great for layering over blue or black polishes. I think it is lovely and has an understated glamorous quality to it. What do you think?

I am sorry that I haven't been posting as much during the last two weeks. I actually just got laid off from my job, and needless to say, it's been a little bit trying to my sense of well being. I have never had this happen before, my company is closing so it came as quite a shock. I am alright and know I will get another job soon, but it is definitely an experience I would rather not have to go through. I was at this company for over four years so I definitely have invested my heart and soul into it, it is hard to see it just fall by the wayside. I have been trying to keep positive and now I can find a career that is tied into what I went to school for, really live up to my potential. I know it will yield positive results in the end, but it is still hard. Thanks to everyone for your support, you're awesome and I love you!

  6. First of all, everything happens for a reason; even if it seems a little obscure right now, I predict the reason for your lay-off is because the opportunity is ripe for even better things for you....stay focused, know that you're loved & supported and there will be a positive outcome to this! Secondly, that shade is awesome! There's a subtle glamour about it that sort of creeps up on you...I love it and love your swatches! Hugs!!

  11. i'm so sorry to hear about your job, when I was growing up it seemed like every company my dad worked for eventually failed and he was unemployed A LOT so I know how it feels to live without a job and the feeling of "not knowing" about the future.

    I have no doubt in my mind that you'll find another job, just keep doing what you've been doing..keep your spirits high and you'll come out of this stronger than before. Good luck!

    xoxo-Lauren

  17. Love the lacquer,it's one of my untrieds. I'm going through the exact same thing. Laid off a little over a month ago and had been there for 7 1/2 years. I'd never been laid off, either. Shock and awe is the only way to describe the feeling but we'll get through this with our head up! :)

  20. Wishing you healing feelings on getting laid off - and a fast job search to the next job out there for you. It's so tough. But a good friend of mine not even looking for a job to add as she has a good part time one and a 2 yr old - got offered more than 3/4 time job on the spot when refereed as a good candidate by the lady leaving the job in a med office. So things can come up from anywhere. Get the news out - but I don't need to tell you that - sure you are beyond licking your wounds and getting going ASAP. Think of temp agencies. I find more and more companies large and small just don't have time to interview. They go with agencies to send out folks. I have 2 friends who both got their last jobs that way. Meanwhile they get pick up and fill in work via the agency along the way too.
