Good morning, everyone :) When I was a kid, my mom gave me a poster of a little kitten yawning to the caption of "Morning always comes before I'm awake". I guess I've never been an early morning person. I honestly think it'd be wonderful to wake up at 5:30 and be excited and motivated and ready to hit the ground running, not to mention getting to watch the sun rise on a regular basis. I keep thinking it's something I might grow into, but it hasn't happened yet. At the very least, today is not that day, lol.
The Aussie indie polish scene is just about the most exciting one to watch right now. There's a very nice selection of well defined brands who've made or are in the midst of making their marks, each as unique as the last-- and they're all good polishes. I've honestly not come across an Aussie indie that wasn't easy to fall in love with. I'm excited to get to share a couple fun and fanciful Glam Polishes with you all over the next couple days.
This is Leapfrog, from the Fun and Games collection.
Leapfrog is a light-medium shaded turquoise creme-jelly hybrid filled with matte glitters in sizes spanning the scale-- there are tiny yellow specks, very small magenta dots, small yellow and spring green hexes, and medium, large, and the occasional extra large spring green hex. The "crelly" formula makes for a bit of visible nail line, and I used three coats to bring it to this opacity. This gives the glitters the wonderfully fun look of free floating, and because it's so packed, the layers can get a little thick. Glam's base seems to run a little on the thin side but this makes for foolproof placement of the glitters and absolutely no work on my part in getting them to look good. What you see is what you get, and it looks fantastic.
