Juanita and Michelle invited me to join their twinsies posts (so does that make this a triple-sies post? ;) We're going to
Hmmm... The one kind of polish that isn't very well represented in my collection is glitter polish. I hardly have any and the ones I do have usually have a clear base so those don't work either. I quickly decided to go for one of the rare holos-with-thingies-in-them that I own (and I can just hear Maria chuckle now ;) and combine it with a chrome, like Michelle did, and I think I didn't do too bad, even if it was 'at the last minute':

On my thumb, index and pinky you see a slightly thicker than usual coat of p2 Techno Chrome 020 Champagne Glare, a lovely warmer toned gold that dries extremely fast so stamping with it was a bit of a challenge... My middle and ring finger are painted with two thin coats of Powder Perfect Meet Me in the Glade, a pretty brownish-orangey-red holo with lots of red and gold flakies, to me a perfect example of Autumn in a bottle. I had a little trouble with the brush as there were some hairs sticking out but a few snips of the scissors and they were gone and I could enjoy a perfect formula that covered in almost one coat. After a short wait my middle and ring finger were dry enough to stamp on and I used Champagne Glade with the same plate Michelle used, Pueen 103. A coat of Seche Vite on all my nails and I was done, except for taking pictures, typing this post and scheduling it so it will be published when Juanita and Michelle publish their nails.
The polishes that were actually used in this manicure (and not the 20+ that I pulled out while selecting and that are still on my desk...)

I hope I did Michelle's beautiful manicure some justice (if not, I'm going to blame my husband who chose the design in the first place ;) What do you think?
I can hardly wait to see what Juanita and Michelle did. If you're as curious as I am, click their names at the first line of this post to visit their blogs. Their posts should be online now as well (keeping my fingers crossed I figured out the scheduling thingie correctly).
Powder Perfect Meet Me in the Glade was bought from Harlow & Co.
