Hello! I'm back again with a different manicure today. I thought as it's near Halloween and a lot of people like it, I'd dig out my China Glaze Fortune Teller (from the Spellbound Halloween collection 2009).
Personally I don't do anything for Halloween apart from turn off the lights and hope no-one knocks on the door, however this is a very nice polish and so will make an exception!
Fortune Teller has lots of different shapes and sizes of orange glitter in a black jelly/creme hybrid base. It can be quite thick due to the glitter in it and I did three thin coats for this. I think next time I'll use two coats over a black polish. I'd say you still need two coats to get the depth of glitter. You will also need a topcoat unless you like the gritty bumpy feel.
This polish reminds me of bonfire embers against a black November sky (I've come over all Wordsworth!).

In full sunlight, see the light glinting off the glitter? Beautiful!:

It's the simple things in life that give me the greatest pleasure: good company, having a laugh, etc, but also since I've been doing this blog and swatching glitter polishes I really like the sparkles when I do the sunshine photos! So here's another closeup of the bling, a bit out of focus though!:
I loved my swatch of Blue Mosaic that had a good bit of bling on the fingertip! ( There is a scientific name for this but cannot for the life in me remember.)
Now we all know that removal is not happening quickly so I might keep this on for a day or so, what would you like to see in the meantime though? Any suggestions and I'll see if I have it!
Goodbye for now ladies, and thankyou for following me, it keeps me motivated. xxx
