I am loooovin the Rimmel nail polish!!!! I mean look at how vibrant that red is!! but it's not just that, I love the finish of this nail polish, it goes on really really smooth... as in 100% streak free... I just love it!!

Nail Magic Nail Hardener (base coat)
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro - STILETTO RED (3 coats)
Revlon No Chip top coat
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Starry, Starry Flight (2 coats on tips)
Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat

I probably should have left it alone but just to give it a little spark for the spirit of the Holidays, I tried doin a little nail art... I mean I reeeaaally tried!! haha... you'll see what I'm talkin about...

here is a picture of one thin coat of SH Starry, Starry Flight on the tips...

then after 3 coats of the glitter polish...

I tried to make it look like snow icicle....

but you're the judge whether I'm successful with this attempt or not... 

personally, I thought I did alright at my first attempt to nail art... =)
