    i can't decide about this one. it's been an untried for about a year, lol. I'm just not into blues...  it does look good on you though! :) maybe i should keep it for my sister, in case she ever starts to love glitter.

  7. This was the winner of that collection and not Mad As A Hatter. My opinion of course. Oh and I demand more Mario the bun!

  8. Gaaaaaah your pics of this are SO good! (And of course, the polish is beautiful.) Can I ask what camera, settings, etc. you use? Apologies if you've already answered this question elsewhere on your blog and I missed it! Your pics of glitters (which make my camera crazy and unable to focus) are just TOO good!

  9. Ahh I wish I had picked this up when I got MaaH. It was before I was de-muggle-ified, though, so I missed it. Sadness!

  17. Beautiful! Absolutely Alice has been at the top of my wishlist for months. I need to pick up a bottle before the price gets too crazy. Did you layer this over black?

  18. OMG I know. MaaH did nothing for me! And I promise Mario will make an appearance soon :D

  19. omg... sorry it took so long to get back to you K! Ok, here goes...

    I shoot with a Sony DSC-H5. Most of the time, the auto mode works just fine for me but sometimes if it's not cooperating, I'll adjust the white balance to whatever light source I'm using.Soft light tends to be the best in bringing out fine details in polish - glitters, flakies, some duochromes etc. The two types of soft lighting I use are shade and a light box. The light box brings out more details but the downside is that the nail polish will appear semi-matte and not shiny.For close-ups, what I do is set the "picture size setting" on my camera to the highest one - 7 megapixels. This means that after I crop, I'll still have a large picture with lots of detail. Then I'll take a pic and crop it down to just the one nail.So basically... the key for me is soft, diffused light. My favourite is using a light box.


    I HTH! I have lots of pics that I could attach to this as examples and comparisons but I'm not sure if you want them... tweet or pm me on MUA if you'd like them k? :)

  27. AA was the only one I picked up from the collection because of it's beauty and because Alice is my mother's name!  :) I couldn't be happier that I have this little gem!!
    How many top coats did it take for it to be smooth to the touch? What top coat do you use becausse it looks ah-may-zing!!!

  28. Wow that's great coverage for a glitter! I just assumed it was layered with something because it was so vibrant! :p
