Pop the Champagne-this doesn't suck!

I am my own worst critic.  I think a lot of people are like that.  I know I've told you before that I am hard core Type A anal OCD all the way.  I hate it when I take the time picking nail polish colors that I think will rock together only to find out that it doesn't translate to the nail.

In my mind, my last two manis have sucked.  I realize that that is probably harsh and shrinks around the world are screaming "you've got to love yourself." Well today I do.  Want to know why?  Because in my mind, the mani I'm about to show you doesn't suck and it's made my whole day better.

This is also my third Illamasqua in a row.  Can you tell I have a new love in my life?  I am loving this brand. Their colors are to die for.  I still have three more to show you after today!  But today, we shall be admiring Illamasqua Scarab.  A delicious rusty red full of shiny shimmer.  I have a new favorite red.  This is also the poster boy color for fall.  Are you ready?

Here is your silly bottle shot.  Scarab on the left, Bettina Champagne on the right.


Like I said, this is a perfect dark rust color full of shiny red shimmer.  The Bettina Champagne is from their new limited edition collection, Bliss.  It is a metallic light bronze.  Here are your indoor and outdoor shots.

Seriously, are you not loving this red? I am so impressed with the way Illamasqua does shimmer.  It's my new favorite polish.  Any one from Illamasqua reading this, I will try out all your new colors for you! Call me up!

Now you know, the last two manis I have done weren't the best color choices.  But what goes better with red than gold? Are those not THE colors of nature right now?  How can I go wrong with nature?  So I used XL plate A and my funky french and here are the results. Prepare to be awed!

Can you tell I'm especially proud of this one?  Are there enough pictures for you?  I can always do more!

So are you you own worst critic too?  Are you loving these colors? Anything?
