No Plain Jane

I had to take a break from holos today since the sun was not cooperating.  Of course, it decided to come out after all was said and done.

I also have a confession to make.  I rebought a polish I had sold on my blog sale. Oh the shame I feel and embarrassment telling you all my secret.  I'd bet however, that there are some of you out there that have done the same thing!  Come on, admit it to me!

I had to go stock up on Seche so I saw the new Orly's.  I had been lemming the pretty blue shimmer one called Pretty Ugly.  Well let me just say that this polish may be pretty but it's a PITA to use.  It was sheer, runny and you'd get brush drag so easily that I was getting too frustrated and had to switch polish mid mani.  I'd polish my nail and the stuff would run down the sides of my nail and pool there. So not user friendly what so ever.

The polish I rebought?  Pure Ice Heartbreaker.  This is in the Selkie family, but green instead of blue.  I must have been smoking crack when I sold this beauty.  I just had to have it all over again.  This time it's not for sale!!!  If you guys haven't checked lately, I've lowered prices and added more polish and Julep treatments to my sale.

Here's the silly bottle shot for today.

This is Pure Ice Heartbreaker, Rescue Beauty Lounge Jane, Bettina Peppermint and Orly Pretty Ugly.

I started with Jane and an accent of Ugly.  I was so frustrated again by this Orly, I didn't do a good cleanup job.  Here are the starting shots.

As pretty as this blue is, I can't see ever having the patience to play with it again.  It's going to the sale.  Jane is a gorgeous nude.  I next stamped with the Bettina, since I had switched blues using Cheeky jumbo plate 10 Happy Nails.  Here is that step.

I next added a layer of Heartbreaker and finished it off with my funky.  The sun did come out for this part.

Even though this started out lame, I think it turned out really pretty.  The subtle shimmer in the sun from Heartbreaker just makes this mani.  I'm glad I bought it again.

Have you ever rebought a polish you either sold or gave away?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
