I may need to see a Dr. I think I was poisoned, lol..........

So about a month ago I was browsing eBay for polishes, when I came across this listing, that had a picture of what looked to be such an amazing polish! It doesn't have a name, but maybe referred to just the #189. The listing, from what I recall, just called it Purple Glitter. It was coming from another country, so I waited very patiently for about 2 weeks. Which I know isn't long, but for me......was a lifetime :( Well when it finally arrived, and couldn't wait to try it. When I first opened it, I could see it was very sheer, but that doesn't bother me at all, since I love to layer. I grabbed my Petites Wild Plum, and just did 1 coat of that, then added my new pretty. It really is GORG, but the smell...........can I just say that I'm pretty sure my insides might be permanently damaged from this stuff, but who cares when it looks this good! If I'm ever to do another full mani with this stuff, I will need to be in some kind of open pasture, with Vicks Vapor Rub, under my nose! This was also the polish, that I had used in this post, in the very last mani, on my tips

  5. Haha! I kinda miss the strong smell that polishes used to have, now they've took out all the harmful chemicals. Darn those harmful chemicals!

    Lovely colour though. Totally worth the permanent, internal damage ;-)

    Nice blog, just stumbled upon it. Following x

  9. Thanks you guys! This might be one I play with after a few drinks, sitting outside during the Spring, lol. It's pretty bad, when you have to mark on your calander, when it's best to use a certain polish, lol.

  14. OMG!!!! I got a gold foil of the same brand and the smell knocked me over!!

    I think they ripped the ingredient list from someone else's label b/c it didn't smell at all like anything I've ever used!!!

    Gorgeous polish, though. Next best thing to Dazzled by Gold!! But, oh, the smell!!

  16. Hey Chloe! It took a little over three weeks to get here but I am now the proud owner of #189 (stink, and all - lol). It is one of those colors that you want to just stare at in the bottle. Thanks for the recommendation... :)

  18. Saw your post and had to buy it! Ditto the smell :) It is quite lovely, though :D I layered it over black and see lots of greenish or teal sparkles. Thanks for swatching!
