Today I am going to show you the polish I’ve paid the most for: OPI’s Absolutely Alice. It’s the blue glitter from the Alice in Wonderland collection from spring 2010, a year and a half before my polish addiction really started. By the time I got Alice on the radar, she was hard to find, but fortunately not *very* hard to find.
I bought her in a blog sale in September 2012, and I paid US$25 for her. I can’t quite remember what the shipping was, but I think it was around US$10. I was so thrilled when she arrived. I remember I wrote “Alice is in da house” in a group on Facebook, haha!
Anyway – Here’s what I did. Two coats of Alice on pinkie and pointer.
The gradient on the two other fingers are NailNation 3000 “White” and Golden Rose #39. All three stamps are from Moyou London’s stamping plate Alice in Wonderland collection-01. There is a layer of topcoat over it all.
Here are the three polishes I used:
I have one other polish that I paid the same for, and that’s China Glaze DV8 from the OMG collection from January 2009. It’s a beautiful teal linear holo, but I didn’t want to use that for this challenge, even though I actually like it a little bit more than Absolutely Alice. Why? Because the sun is not shining today, that’s why. And I only want to wear DV8 when the sun shines.
Let’s go check out what the other girls did. They usually do really cool stuff!
