China Glaze Meteor Shower

Hello! I hope you're having a good day (I know it's Monday) today. Technically, I am still on hiatus until Friday at least but today is a special day for me so I wanted to write a post today.

Today is my birthday! Why was it so hard to type that. I tried quite a few times before I could get it out. Today was all about "It's my birthday and I'll ___ if I want to."

Anyway, I was going to wear Chanel Peridot and post that (because it's my birthstone), but last week I filed my nails down because I had a couple of peels and it made my nails pretty thin. I am saving Peridot until my nails are 100% again.

China Glaze Meteor Shower is gorgeous and worthy of the birthday post. I got a few compliments while wearing it, which doesn't happen often, so I know I wasn't the only one who loved it.

I did 2-3 coats (can't remember) with about 2-3 layers of top coat. It's gritty, so if you have Gelous (which I need), you might want to use it. It looks better when it's completely smooth. The glitter ate the topcoat over a couple of days so you'd probably have to add more when it's noticeable.

Shiny & Matte

If you don't have this, and you like glitter and/or blue, YOU NEED THIS. If only China Glaze would make a red one. I would be all over it in less than a Mississippi second.

I will be back in less than a week! Can't believe I'm finishing my first year already. When I'm back, I'll have a contest and some surprises, maybe ;)

Happy Monday, guys. I hope this blue kicks the hell out of your Monday blues (:
