I've Got a Spell On You

Another red and gold combo for the holidays today.  I used Barielle Elle's Spell.

This is a red jelly base with flakies.  It really shines and the flakies add a bit of interest.

I of course had a application fail on the middle finger.  I don't know if that is angle of photo or I put too much on that side or my nail is curving or what.  That nail is always my more curvy nail, it is even worse on my right hand from where I hold my pen (and that cuticle is DESTROYED on my right hand).  However, I don't think I have a frankennail THAT bad.  Or at least I hope not.

Cripes, bad enough I worry about every other body part, now my nails too?  I have to ask myself from now on "do my nails look fat in this polish"?  Oy.    However, after very deep inspection from every angle, I can say this was either a camera angle or polish globbing.  I can't say which, although with jellies, likely globbing.  I seem to recall this one didn't make it through the night either, so I'm going to go with globbing.  Yeah, that's the ticket.  My nails aren't fat or deformed. 

So yeah, sorry about the scary nail.   Pretty polish though!  lol.

  1. This is a beautiful polish. I always have issues with my middle nail too. It's wider or something and never looks right??? But this does look like the polish maybe got thicker on the end - I don't think your nail normally looks like that:) Do get a complex now ;) ttyl.

  2. This polish is beautiful! It's been on my wish list for quite some time. I know what you mean about your middle finger nail. For some reason I always think mine looks odd in comparison to my other nails.

  3. Ahh, most of us seem to have a funny middle nail. See, group therapy! This is good. This does look to be the nature of jellies, though. It contributes to the squishy factor <3 This is gorgeous. I don't think I've ever seen it, just heard about it. I see what all the fuss is about!
