Real Men Wear Pink

Hello there!  Welcome back!  I've taken a couple of weeks off from blogging, but I'm happy to bring you a beautiful polish today!  Read on for more pics and info!

So I may have been a bit naughty while on vacation for a week (partly why I haven't had time for my blog - I was enjoying a much-needed vacay).  I may have bought a few (read: many... many many) bottles of polish recently.  I had a good bit of them show up while I was away, but my wonderful neighbor was kind enough to rescue them throughout the week and grace me with them upon my return!  Thank you, my dear neighbor friend!

One of these packages contained a beautiful glitter crelly duo by Lollipop Posse Lacquer.  This is one of the packages I was most excited about (oh, who am I kidding, I was crazy excited for all of them!).  Well, this particular package did not disappoint!!  This first polish I used from the duo is called Boys Can't Be Men (gosh, my blog post titles are so corny... if nothing else at least I amuse myself!  ;-) ).  

Nothing to disclose.  All polish purchased by me.
L-R: Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator, OPI Nail Envy, Lollipop Posse Lacquer Boys Can't Be Men, MPolish Pish 'Plashin Around, KBShimmer Clearly On Top

Take a look at this amazing neon pink crelly with various shapes and sizes of neon blue glitter, with a smattering of blue micro glitter and aqua shimmer.  At first glance I was sure I would need at least three coats to be fully opaque, and even then I figured I'd probably need a white undie.  Boy was I wrong!

Below is two fabulous coats of Lollipop Posse Lacquer Boys Can't Be Men.  I don't think I've gotten along with a polish this well, maybe ever.  I'm not even a big fan of pink!  But this was everything I could have asked for in a pink polish.  Not only is this such an appealing shade of pink and blue, but the formula is perfect for precision (stayed where I put it, not runny or thick, self-leveled), the brush is perfect for the size and shape of my nails and it distributed the polish very well without flooding my cuticles, it has a fantastic glitter payoff and required no fishing whatsoever.  It also dried pretty quickly between coats.  I finished my second coat and just sat and admired my nails for a good bit of time, much longer than any "normal" person, I'm sure.

I topped them all with KBShimmer Clearly On Top quick dry topcoat, and was ready for some stamping.  But first....  ;-)


Look at that lovely shimmer!  And those neon blue glitters just POP over that neon pink!

There are about twenty more "nailies" but I will save you the trouble (and your sanity!) and tell you they all looked pretty similar to the three photos above.

So yeah, stamping!  I've been dying to use this image from my Uber Chic Beauty set 1 plates, pretty much since I saw MadamLuck use it in this fashion with a different color combination.  I ended up covering a bit more surface area of my nail than I meant to, but I like the fact that the image is so open and delicate so it didn't take too much away from the base polish.  This image can be found in Uber Chic Beauty's first set, plate 1-02.

Say hello to my little friends....  =)

Oh yeah, I should point out that I am fully aware that I have an interesting mix of nail shapes on Cindy there.  Yes, my index finger decided to peel halfway down along the free edge so she got chopped, and oh yeah, guess who decided to follow along?  What a poser....  And if you think I'm filing the rest of them down to match these traitors, well, you don't know me very well.  I just feel like it's a great way to show how polish looks on long and short nails alike!!  Hey, what a novel idea, I know.  :-p

Anyway, I stamped with MPolish Pish Plashin' Around.  As you can gather from the trickles of polish down the front of Pish, this stunning blue stamping polish is well used here.  It's the perfect summer blue!  I felt that it complemented the colors in Boys Can't Be Men very well.  I then sealed everything in with another coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

I've included a sun shot just because this summery combo deserved some sunlight action!
