NOTD: Mummy May I

Happy Friday!

I'm feeling much better, and thank you guys for the well wishes :). Of course now that I'm no longer confined to the bed, I decided to paint my nails again. Today is officially the first day of fall, so time to let go of the bright summery colors and embrace the darker hues.
 I've been dying to use Mummy May I. I love glitter, and anything purple :). And what a cute name!

It was extremely hard to capture the glitter particles of this polish in the photos. It's been raining all day long, so no sun :(. If the sun decides to show itself, I'll definitely take some better pics of this.
Edit 9/24/11: Added new pics (#2 &5)Still no sun, but at least you can really see the glitter now.
Mummy May I has bright purple glitter suspended in a dark purple base. You can see the dark purple base after one coat, but it ends up looking closer to black after 3 coats. Beware, this polish eats topcoat for breakfast. I used 1 coat of seche vite and 2 coats of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat to give it a shine that I was satisfied with. I never like to leave a polish un-decorated for too long, so if I come up with an idea for nail art, I'll definitely post it.

Thanks for stopping by!
