Good morning!! It's another Wednesday, and time for another Breast Cancer Awareness pink manicure. Andrea at Finger Painting Fingers organized this fantastic event for nail gals the world over to come together and raise awareness about this disease that affects us all. Before I get on to the polish I'd like to post a link to a great site that lays out the risk factors, including some interesting gene mutation stuff. Take a couple minutes to further educate yourselves. Here's Breast Cancer Risk Factors from cancer.org, the American Cancer Society's site.
This Wednesday's pink is Razzle Dazzler, one of eight full coverage glitters from Sally Hansen's specialty collection this spring, Gem Crush.
Razzle Dazzler is packed with tiny rose pink glitters and bigger silver hex glitters suspended in a clear base. If you've been reading for a while, you may or may not have noticed a general absence of glittery polishes around these parts. If my reaction to Razzle Dazzler is any indication, it's a glitter for gals who don't love glitter. I LOVE this one. It's sparkly and flashy and dressed up, not in a playful way, but in a highly glamorous, over the top way. Think Las Vegas, or better yet, Richard Gere singing "Give 'em the old razzle dazzle" in the musical Chicago. (That might have influenced the purchase of this polish, lol...)
I used two coats of polish and two coats of Out The Door topcoat, and I now know what is meant when someone calls a polish a 'topcoat eater." This is still a little on the bumpy side, but not to the point of distraction. Also, I decided to bump up the sizes again for this post only, lol, because this polish deserves a closer look. ;) Thanks for reading. :)
