Thanks! Practice makes perfect when it comes to nails, so you'll be stamping patterns in no time!

Just for grins: swatch spoof.

I do love this color, Butter London's Artful Dodger.

And no bubbles yet! Tho I did smoosh first finger and thumb tips inserting hearing aid afterwards. Note to self: add hearing aids to list of things to do before painting nails.

The learning curve for nail painting isn't very steep, promise!

So i'm looking into trying more brands, and if I can order them off of amazon so they arrive together, all the better! AND THEN THIS:

http://www.amazon.com/Kleancolor-polish ... kleancolor

Why is it $9.45 total for six polishes? Most of the reviews say they're awful, but I wouldn't expect chunky glitter to go on easily or dry fast.

I've been wondering about Kleancolor. But haven't seen many reviews of it. If you do buy it, please let us know how it holds up.

ok, evidently I don't get how to link images. It was there a minute ago and now it's a broken graphic. Do I need to put the image file on a server other than twitpic or something?

looks to me like you linked it correctly, so it probably is your source. Try flickr or photobucket or similar?

Are you seeing a photo or a broken img graphic? Maybe I need to reboot.

broken image! but the [img] tags around the url look good... so it's not what you're doing on the boards, it's the source. (just my best guess)

in nail related news: NOTD is BL Old Bill with Matte Top Coat. I love matte topcoat over metaillics so much more than cremes.

KleanColor polishes smell like death, despite being 3-free, and you have to dab on the chunky glitters instead of just painting them on, but they dry fine with a fast dry topcoat on top. I have a pretty extensive KleanColor collection. They're always super cheap too, beautyjoint.com has them for $1.75 a piece. The KleanColor metallic line is supposed to be awesome for stamping with, but I haven't bought any to try out yet.

Fork you, Chanel. Diwali is, indeed, a gorgeous color. I've liked it since I bought it as Kaleidoscope. Grrrrr.

It's not a perfect dupe: Diwali is lighter and brighter and has a slightly different texture (more like Graphite than a perfectly smooth foil), but in many different lights or angles, they are hard to tell apart. Nobody really needs them both, especially when Diwali was $37 (with shipping). If they at least sold this in stores, it would be cheaper and easier to make an informed decision.

I guess it's good news for the people trying to find K at exorbitant eBay prices. I think I'll seal my bottle back up, put it in the box and sell it on eBay later.

This was not the nice little pick me up treat I wanted.

Aww sorry :( Since I'm cool-toned, which do you think would look better on me--Diwali or Graphite?

Well Graphite is a definite cool charcoal grey. It looks exactly like the super shiny, sparkly museum quality graphite mineral specimens!

Diwali is a silvery-gold. It is still a gold of sorts, but the silvery aspect helps it remain more neutral.

Graphite is definitely more flattering on me, but if you want a gold, Diwali is very wearable. But, it's $37. I've heard that Dior Timeless Gold may be a dupe. I'm sure there are dupes. I highly doubt Diwali is worth $37. If you could buy it at a counter for $25, I'd say it's a great color, but yeesh.

My mom actually saw a difference. She liked Kaleidoscope better because it's darker and has more depth, but she said she supposes there is a purpose for both. Did my mom just enable me?

It looks like there are some pretty close Diwali dupes.

Searched multiple Walgreens for the WnW stars polish special. Couldn't find it anywhere. Seriously bummed.

JoyfulVegan - very nice!

I got some of these last week and the rest this week
Orly Cosmic Kiss, On the List and L.A Color Club Color Craze Shock
Image Image

And Nail It! Smoke, Phoenix and Olive

And this is 2 coats of Nail It! Phoenix with Orly Liquid Vinyl tips and stamped over the top using KIP m29. Phoenix reminds me of the swatches I've seen of Zoya Rica
