Smitten Polish ~ Blue Footed Booby Dance



Smitten Polish ~ Blue Footed Booby Dance
Turquoise linear holo

It’s still winter and pitch dark here. I haven’t seen the sun for months. And yet I find myself keep buying holos. I can’t help it – they are sooo beautiful. And I can’t let them sit in a box for months, waiting for the sun to come back, can I?

So yes, I must admit that it’s an obsession. I love holos – perhaps even more than I love glitter! <Gasp>!!

Anyway, the turquoise blue holo is absolutely stunning in person. The formula is good. I experienced some dragging when I applied the first coat, but I had no problems at all when I applied the second. Drying time is really fast too, so this polish is a winner for sure.

Let me show you what it looks like. All the pictures in this post, except for the last one, are taken with flash.

Two coats, no topcoat:


The colour. The rainbows. The beauty!


Can you tell that I really, really like this? Well, I do!


I stamped on it, because I’m eager to try out more of my Moyou London stamping plates. This time I used Princess Collection-14 and I stamped with Kiko mirror collection #616 Silver.

I didn’t apply a topcoat just yet. Here’s my final mani:


Mmmmm… yes, that’s what I like!


I’m working a bit on my hand poses. This one is probably not a winner.


This last shot is taken in my lightbox without flash, to show you what this polish looks like out of the sun. Pretty, right? I love it!


At first I must admit I found the name silly. But that was before I actually knew what a Blue Footed Booby is. They are large birds living in the Galapagos Islands; reaching 70 - 90 cm in height and with a wing span of up to 1.5 m. And when I show you a picture of them, you’ll probably be able to tell why this polish is turquoise!


Is this polish still a winner? Yes it is. The colour is great, drying time too, and the formula… I don’t have anything negative to say about this beauty at all.

Did you know that a Blue Footed Booby was a bird? O.o
