Hey Ladies-Get Funky!

Ahhhhh the sweet sounds of the Beastie Boys and their Paul's Boutique album.  Anyone else love the Beasties? I am really into all types of music. I have a vast CD collection of music from Monk monastery music, country, rap, rock, classical, you name it I have some of it! When I grabbed Deborah Lippmann's Single Ladies, my thoughts just kept singing "Hey ladies, get funky".  I don't know why only single ladies get to wear this sexy red-yes I am single, but you ladies out there with a partner-wear this anyway and be proud!

Man am I on a weird kick today eh?  I've been bored with my artsy fartsy bottle shots lately.  I still think it's kind of silly, but thought I'd start having some more fun with it.  So here is my baby Sam and DL Single Ladies.


He's been jealous of Checkers since I show her more often. So he was nice enough to pose and look interested for you! This is a dramatic, sexy deep dark jelly red.  I have to say though, that I hate DL's formula.  It is runny, patchy and this jelly was stringy.  Whenever I got to the tip of my nail and removed the brush, I got a mozzarella string going from the nail to the brush.  Then it would leave a little extra dot of polish on my tips.  Not cool.  I really am not going to buy any more of her polishes.  Here are inside and outside pictures.

This color was hard to capture indoors, so I used flash so you could see the beauty of the jelly.  Yes the polish is a pain in the ass, but it sure is pretty.  Plus I just love jellies. Next I grabbed RBL Insouciant which I posted alone here and Bundle monster BM223.  This really came out awesome, but is hard to see.  My friend Oreo would call it 'subtle'.

Right now blogger is being stupid and it won't let me upload more pictures.  I took so many to try and capture the design. This is really cool to look at, but it certainly is NOT screaming loud.  You have to get up close and personal to see it. Maybe that's a good thing, if you're single and using this sexy red to get the attention of someone you like! Hey now, maybe that's what Deborah was thinking!

I actually really love these two reds together.  I got alot of compliments on it.  I also get asked if I free hand the tips. The answer is yes I do.  I tried tape, but it always pulled off the stamp design so I figured out how to free hand it.  I think it looks really good! Practice certainly helps.

One last shout out-my giveaway ends Wednesday at midnight NY time.  Get your entries in!  Who else is loving this jelly red? Do you like the subtle or are you more a loud in your face kind of girl? Isn't Sam a cutey? He just loves the spotlight!

  9. I think that the color really looks nice afterwards even though it was runny and patchy.. But I was wondering how many layers you've put on to get that nice schellac look. I look the deep red color!! :-)
