Alta Costura Vernis Brightside & Kat Von D Sparklehorse

So you came here for nails right? 

Time to get the party started!!

Well, on a semi-serious (we wont have many of those around here) note, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who came over here and joined me today! I was blown away to hop on the computer this evening and see that I already had followers! Perhaps a lil' giveaway is in order this weekend **wink, wink**, tomorrow is payday afterall! But really, thank you, especially to those of you who went out on a limb and shared this blog with your own fans! It means a lot to me :)

Okay, enough with the sappy stuff...moving on, all aboard the indie polish train!! CHUG-A-CHUG-A-CHUG-A-CHUG-A-CHOOOO-CHOOO!!
So most everyone has already boarded this train by now. Unless of course you live under a rock, or just hate glitter *gasp*!! So, if you happen to be that one rock-dwelling glitter hater, we've got room left for you on the Etsy caboose. But, I must forewarn you, Bosley, my mini schnauzer rides back there, and he has awful Alpo gas...ewwwww. Just follow Dora, and hold your nose.

So today I'd like to show you a polish from a relative newcomer to the Etsy game. I discovered Alta Costura Vernis through one of my friends, and when I saw she had restocked some of her neon glitter polishes, I immediately pounced on them. I'm certainly glad I did, as she sold out lickety-split!

Here's a pic of todays beauties!
On the left we have Kat Von D High Voltage Sparkle Horse
and on the right Alta Costura's Brightside

Hows about a sexy bottle shot?
Ohhhh yea!

For the following pictures, I used two coats of Sparklehorse on my entire hand, and added two coats of Brightside on the accent nails. Both polishes were easy to apply. Sparklehorse is super shimmery, and shines like a bright sunshining day (cue the music), perfectly opaque in two coats. For the accent nails I also used Lynnderella Glitter Tamer, as these matte glitters seem to be pretty gritty. Glitter Tamer is a DREAM, smells like it got dumped out of the back of a 747, but slicks those glitters like a zamboni on a hockey rink :)

Artificial light, no flash for these.

Love the artwork on Kat's bottles

There we have it first official nail post! Isnt Alta Costura awesome!?! Her Etsy shop is currently on vacation, but she should be restocking in the next few weeks. The Kat Von D Hight Voltage Lacquers are available at and at your local Sephora stores.

Till next time,
<3 Em
