Virtual Violet

Hey Everyone!!! I must be the worst blog follower ever!! Some days I just don't get a chance to look at many blogs or I can look quickly but I don't get a chance to comment. THEN they all get backed up and I have 500 posts to catch up on and get overwhelmed. I just spent a couple of hours looking at blogs and didn't even make a dent in my list. I should be smacked with a shoe. Just know that I am reading your blogs and loving them but can't always comment on all of them.

I am not really feeling Easter this year so I might not have too many Easter manis. My son won't be home on Easter and df has to work anyway so it isn't going to be a big deal. I will have one for tomorrow and I already have Saturday and Sunday's manis planned but between here and then I have no idea what I am going to do. I am super sucked into March Madness right now too so I will probably be doing at least one basketball mani in there as well. I don't even LIKE basketball, much less college basketball but I keep getting sucked into these games and stressed out over them!! When the game starts I will pick a team and go with them and oh my lord they have me on the edge of my seats, usually I pick the underdog. I am a huge UM (Miami) fan and df is a Syracuse fan so I of course stress out over those two teams but now I am also heavily rooting for Florida Gulf Coast (gotta love an underdog). My stomach and nerves are very thankful there is a break in games until Thursday.

Anyway, I should probably talk about nails now!!

I did a full mani with China Glaze Virtual Violet after I used it for stamping. The Tronica collection was somewhat of a disappointment after the nail fanatics realized that it wasn't going to be as holographic and they had hoped. This collection unfortunately gets over looked because it is not a strong linear holo but it is really really pretty. Please ignore the red lobster hands in the picture above, it was taken inside and I couldn't get the colors to adjust properly.

I used two coats of Virtual Violet and then did a tape design on my ring finger using Zoya Trixie.

I took several pictures in the sunlight to show you how pretty this polish is even if it isn't as holographic as other polishes out there.

Such a pretty shade of purple and the holo just makes it that much prettier.

I took a ton of pictures because I really really love this polish.

Surprisingly the sun was out when I wore this mani. Usually holos make the sun hide for me.

I have no idea what I was really going for with the accent finger but I kinda like how it came out.

 This polish is really pretty indoors as well.

I think Zoya Trixie is probably my favorite silver polish.

I should take out the rest of the colors from the Tronica collection and wear them all, especially since I won't be getting the new China Glaze Hologlam Collection for awhile.

So pretty.

That's all for now :)

    1. :) It is! I don't think it gets enough credit!

  2. OMG I love purple so much. This color is gorgeous!

    1. lol It is a pretty purple! I have a ton of purple but for some reason don't reach for them enough.

  3. The tape design looks very futurisitic!

    1. AWESOME!! Thank you!!! I was going for that lol I phrased it as a spacey type look but futuristic sounds much better!!

  4. Very pretty! I love subtle holos like this! I'm so sorry I've missed this collection. It was out before I was into nail polish.
    Love the accent finger. Looks very sci-fi-ish!

    1. Thanks :) I almost looked over this collection much like I am over looking the Hologram collection that is out now. I wasn't overly impressed with them when I saw them but I know I will regret it if I don't get them.


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
