The Nail Junkie - Watermelon

Hey all,
Next up in my stash of hidden wonders...
The Nail Junkie - Watermelon

Watermelon is a red-orange jelly packed with holographic shimmer.

Holy crap, I never expected to fall so hard for this polish.
It looks great in the bottle, but on the nail it is something else. 
It dries to a slightly textured finish. 
So you know, with one coat of topcoat, this shimmer's the shit!

Two coats of Watermelon leaves just a hint of visible nail line.
But I love a little VNL. I think it's kinda sexy and adds a bit of depth.

Not only was this polish amazing under bright lights, but indirect light made it positively radiate!

Watermelon is the perfect orange toned red. Not quite a coral, but very close. 
Not a colour I'm usually drawn to, but from the moment I saw it I knew it was the one <3
And I received quite a few compliments from people who never usually mention my polish :)
That right there tells you how special it is.

The formula was superb. Went on like butter. And the wear I experienced was very minimal.
I'm so impressed with The Nail Junkie and I highly recommend checking out her Esty store.  
I loved it so much I even did a bottle shot :O

I hope everyone had a great weekend.
I had a southern themed dinner party last night!
Chilli, strawberry pretzel parfait, tropical cocktails and ...drumroll...
Jello shots in lemon rinds :D
And damned if I didn't get a picture of them :( 
I hollowed out 10 goddamned lemons and I forgot to take a picture!
Well, they were fantastically cute.
Goggle "jello shot in lemons" and you'll know what I'm talking about :P

Have a great week and an awesome manicure!
