Does My Sass Look Big In These Pants?

Today I have the stunning Sassy Pants by Amy's Nail Boutique.  This is another one of these manis that you keep looking down at your nails and smiling.

I started off with 2 coats of Milani Orchidia, a beautiful purple with a bit of shimmer, then I put one coat of Sassy Pants over top.  I thought the glitter spreads perfectly on the nail and a simple swish of the brush in the polish got the larger square glitter out of the bottle easily.

I love the mix of colors of the square glitter.  It isn't so much that it overpowers the polish, but is still a fun little color pop accent on the nail. This glitter also lays down perfectly on the nail and was smooth after two coats of Essie Good To Go.

The mix of micro glitters in this really sets it apart from anything in my collection, it is a perfect summer or spring combo that will get you tons of compliments!

These are in the shade (be sure to click on them to see the spread of glitter)



These are in the sun, it was hard to really show off the sparkle, but you can see it in the less focused fingers!




Here is Orchidia on its own (pardon the mess, I hadn't cleaned up yet!)

You can purchase Amy's Nail Boutique at her Etsy Store.  Milani can be purchased at CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid.

  2. You have so many unique polishes. How do you decide which specialty polishes you are going to try? Word of mouth? Or do you just buy them and see for yourself?

    1. Sometimes I look for swatches first online to see if I like them. There are a few blogs that really highlight indies - Trace Face Philes, I'm Feeling Nailventurous, Things I Love At the Moment are three that spring to mind, but there is a bunch (all of the blogs I read are to the right). Other times if I've heard good word of mouth about a seller or a product, I'll get something pretty on their sales. This was an impulse purchase, I had seen swatches of Amy's other polishes (I went to her shop for Preppy) and when I saw this one I just had to have it! Amy is a great seller and she has a lot of really cool matte glitter combos!

    1. Thanks! I generally don't like the super feminine either, but every now and again I'm drawn to it!
