Whoa … sparkles… *gets distracted*

So I generally stick to fairly basic crème polishes for when I am at work, but tax season is over now and life around the office is a little slower paced and definitely more laid back so I am being a little more adventurous in my polish choices.

So in the last set of polish I bought I had picked up IDK from the China Glaze OMG collection. This polish collection was released in 2008 or 2009 so you will have to do some wandering around your favorite online polish retailer to find it.

IDK is a light purple holographic polish; now indoors or in the shade it just looks like a very pretty lavender, so it is perfectly acceptable for work. (see photo on right)

But step out into the California sunshine and WHAM! this polish is all sparkle and shine. I wore this polish today at work and proceeded to hand people paperwork, etc and no one mentioned anything about the color, but we went to lunch and as soon as I got out of the car and into the sunshine one of my coworkers was like OMG that polish is amazing. So clearly this collection was aptly named.

When applying this polish I was a little worried as my first coat of polish seemed to streak and leave bare spots, the second coat covered perfectly though. I left my manicure without my trusty topcoat of Seche Vite, as I have heard that using a topcoat tends to reduce the sparkle of the holographic polishes. So one coat of Seche Restore as my base coat and two coats of China Glaze IDK, for some serious sparkle.

All in all I think this polish will be getting a lot of use this summer. *goes back to staring at the pretty sparkles*
