For this NOTD I killed two birds with one stone, I used two of my "untrieds". I used Misa's - Blue Over A Boy. I must say when I saw the color in the bottle I was a little disappointed. I just ordered this a few weeks ago, but when I got it, I thought "I picked this color?". However, once on my nails I really liked the color. I did two coats of Blue Over A Boy. This was a really creamy blue. However, if you look at my pinky nail there was some dragging that occurred with this color.

Next, I used my new Claire's - Yel. This was the blue based holo glitter filled color. It was way to sheer to use on its own - dang it. I used Yel to layer over the top of Blue Over A Boy. Wow! This looked really good! I'm really getting in to this whole "layering" thing.
SO tell me, what do you all think?

Oh yes i know the feeling, i had a "I picked this color?" moment when i tried my OPI Greenwich Village, but i'm thinkin maybe Slime might make it less scary.

Really i tried it once i made myself wear it for three days but i can't get used to it. But i kept it thinking about layering it with somethin else, Slime might be it.
