Aurora Borealis

Back when I was in 9th grade or so, I went on a camping trip with a classmate's family. It was in Alexandria Bay, NY-the last NY state exit before Canada on I-81.

I remember when it got dark,  I saw the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.  I wish I had a camera with me back then.  I remember it being a huge circle in the sky with a rainbow of colors dancing around like a woven rug.  After that, there were ghost like streams passing across the sky.  It lasted for hours.  It was the most incredible thing I have ever seen.  I have never seen it since.  Have you ever seen it?  What did it look like for you?

Why is this relevant you ask?  It really isn't-except for the name of one of the polish in this mani and the holo rainbow goodness that it shows.

You ready for the silly bottle shot?

Once again, we have Elevation Polish Aurora, Avalanche and Xixabangma.  Now don't freak about the Xixa-for some reason the outside of the bottle looks like this all the time, but inside, the polish is a uniform gorgeous army green.

I started with Xixa.  This is a one coater if you're careful.  I'm not so I did two.  The sun would not cooperate for this part of the mani.  I just love this army green creme.  One, because I love green and two, because it matches my front door color!  So that is the background for these shots.


Isn't it crazy how it matches my door?  I think it's awesome!  I just wish I had sun shots of this for you.  Trust me, it's gorgeous!  Next I did a layer of Aurora, which is a sparkly army green and gold polish.  Here is what that step looks like.


Certainly doesn't match my door anymore now does it?  Next I did a layer of Avalanche, which is the most popular polish from this line (I don't agree-but I'm like that!).  It is a holo shimmer with tons of different sized hex holo glitter and holo diamond glitter.  It is glitter-tastic.  I topped it off with my funky in the original Xixa. Here are the glorious results.

Don't you just love holo rainbows?  Now you get why I was talking about the Aurora Borealis.  I am loving the holo shimmer in here.  I didn't try to get a ton of glitter on here-but trust me, there is a TON of it in there.

I am actually loving this Xixa green.  I will need to wear this one again.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
