Ooooh Monday was a good day for me :) not only did I take part in the piCture pOlish Blogfest, I also received nail mail!! I finally got my Cheeky Happy Plate which I ordered back in June, I had forgotten all about it so it was a nice surprise! I also received some polishes from a lovely lady who was selling on the UK Only Polish & Beauty Swaps page on Facebook; man I LOVE that page for snagging hard to finds' and bargains!!!
One of those polishes was the focus of today's mani; it's from Fantasy Makers (a US brand) and is called Once Upon A Time. I bought it as much for the bottle as I did the polish lol! how cool is that?? Quirky bottles is my new tangent from indies hahaha, pure polish addict! The polish itself is a charcoal jelly base, filled with large and small red hexes and glitters. It took three coats to become sheer as seen here. I do like it, it's rather vampy and sexy but it's quite different to my usual look! It did have a rather lacklustre finish so I applied a topcoat and then decided to pop on a few studs to the index and ring fingers to shex it up some more hahaha! The other half was a fan, he loves red nails.
