Jack O’ Varnish – Gralch the Hag (Meijer’s Pumpkin Polish)

I know we say polishes surprise us all the time and many of our reviews we LOVE, but I have to say, even though I was excited about this polish, I REALLY underestimated it. Quality and holiday polishes don’t usually go together, but this one has me wishing it was Halloween year round. It’s a great formula, super festive and super fun. It is pure Halloween magic in the form of black and orange bar glitter! I used my monster name generator again, since the polishes don’t have names, and came up with Gralch the Hag, haha.

It’s amazingly easy application; easy to manipulate the glitter on the few pieces you need to, one coat gives perfect glitter coverage, and the clear base is the perfect consistency. Being that it’s only the 19th of September, I did choose to wear it on a day that I was just rocking it in the house haha, but come October, you can bet this will be getting some real action!

1 coat Seche Rebuild

1 coat Fresh Paint – Metro

1 coat Jack O’ Varnish – Gralch the Hag

1 coat Seche Vite (probably could have used 2 though to make it smoother)

Fresh Paint – Metro was my base, and I think that may have even impressed me more. Hit the jump for a review on that!

Drum Roll Please!!! My Premier League Pick is…..

About a month ago Chris mandated that I pick a team to support in the Premier League. Now, I don’t know if I’ve shared this, but I’m a newb to the whole sports fan business haha. So, for many sports I don’t have a team that is “mine”. Since the local-ness of the team wasn’t a factor, I’ll admit it was hard choosing. Also, turns out I’ve made a lot of friends/tweeps in the soccer fandom with a large variety in the teams they support. I read some bios, looked at some kits, read up on history of a few choice teams, asked around a little, and um, crossed off any teams that had fans that I knew of that annoyed me haha. (For the record, LFC and CFC were not crossed off for this reason, and according to his Facebook my dog is still a CFC fan — long story haha)

Buttt, all that just puts off saying which team I chose… which would be Everton. Now, yes, I chose the team who the person making me choose supports, haha, but to be honest, the pink away kits from last year and the yellow ones from this year are what actually made me look at the team. (Everytime I see the yellow I just want to go “I CHOOSE YOU PIKACHU!” and I realize that makes me a massive dork, but hey, you had your childhood, I had mine haha) And I liked what I saw. Plus, Chris will keep me on my toes and make sure I actually follow what’s going on 😛

To celebrate me choosing and the beginning of the season, I give you my first Everton mani! Btw, we can thank Tim Howard’s current kit for this. Camo dude? You’re making me WORK to incorporate you haha.

To read how I did it, and see the kits that inspired it,  follow the jump!
