Lady Gaga, will you be my Valentine?

Hi All!

In honor of Lady Gaga's new single, "Born This Way" being released tomorrow, the fact that it's almost Valentine's Day as well as the fact that I am single, I chose Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance as my NOTD!

I'm not a huge fan of the see-through quality of the black jelly base, so I first did 2 coats of plain black polish, and then one coat of Bad Romance. I always do this with Across the Universe too (substituting navy polish for the black). I prefer the way it looks, plus it extends the life of these two gorgeous, and pricey, polishes!

Please forgive my cuticles! They're gross right now, and they made my manicure look pretty sloppy in the close-ups! :(

Cash Money

Hi all!
Today I have the beautiful Ivanka by Zoya for you! I cant help but think of money when I see this polish. Partly because it is an amazing shade of green, and partly because the name just makes me think of Ivanka Trump! Anyway, here she is in all her glory! :)

This was 3 coats, although I probably could have gotten away with two. This is one of Zoya's foil-glitters, which I am a big fan of. The particles almost look like a combination of green and gold, but that might just be my eyes playing tricks on me!
