So…it snowed. Sort of.
Here in good old Charlotte, NC a flake of snow that has no chance of sticking to the ground causes mass panic. After living in the Midwest for several years (and living through a legitimate blizzard and several snow emergencies) my love for snow is a thing of the past. But, that didn’t stop me for reaching for my favorite nail polish that reminds me of a snowy day; Orly Pixie Dust.
From Orly’s Fall 2009 Once Upon a Time collection, Pixie Dust is a dusty steel grayish blue with glass fleck glitter. It really does remind me of a snowy day in Ohio. The color is just gorgeous and quite unique. The base color is similar to OPI I Don’t Give a Rotterdam but the shimmer is more similar to OPI I Have a Herring Problem. The closest dupe I could come up with is butter LONDON Lady Muck.
The formula has a of a jelly feel to it so it’s a bit on the thin side. I used 4 coats in my swatches.
To give my manicure an even more icy feel I topped it with NYC Starry Silver. The result was lovely. Along with additional swatches of Pixie Dust there are photos of my “snow day” manicure below the jump.
Please tell me I’m not the only one that matches their manicure to the weather on occasion! I’m realize writing this post it might be a bit on the crazy side…
