Champagne Cocktails and Mimosas, Hello 2012!!

I wanted to re-swatch a couple of combinations of OPI's I Only Drink Champagne with a couple of "bubbly" layers.

First is Cover Girl Crystal Mist, an iridescent glitter leaning blue/green/amber in the particles, but showing pink in their translucent state. The base is milky, but for all intents and purposes, clear.

Three coats of OPI IODC and two coats of glitter.


For the morning after brunch, Mimosas all around!

Instead of Crystal Mist, I grabbed Color Club's Turn The Other Chic and put it over IODC:

The sugary look to the finish reminds me of some sort of brunch-y desert cake frosting. Gotta carb load after a night of partying!

As a side note, since I have bunch of glitter swatches lined up, I may just carry on with this them for January. I had to toss out some photos of some swatches because I mislabeled them while editing. Yoiks!
I really want to finish up all the ideas I had lined up. Why not? Spring will be here soon enough.

Perhaps cremes for February before I hit March Green Madness. 

Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!
