Sally Hansen, Gem Crush Cha-Ching!

Hello and Happy Valentines Day! I have to say, I have nothing against Valentines Day really, but I think it's a little silly (sorry!). I'm not un-romantic, I just think these nice gestures should be done all year, and because someone wants to, not because the have to. My favorite gifts are things my husband does for no reason whatsoever:-) Don't get me wrong flowers (and jewelry) are always welcome, I just don't put too much stock in one holiday to determine romance.
Anywhozzle... I wanted to have some Vday spirit, but was feeling a little lazy so instead of the water marble I originally planned, I give you Cha-Ching! This was easy peasy and very pretty!

I've had this one sitting in my stash a while, and felt this was as good a time as any! Red, hearts, love..yada yada.. This went on super easy. This is two coats! If you saw the first coat you would never think this would be opaque in 2! It went on thin, dried quickly, and the second was the same. It needed two coats of Seche Vite to smooth it all out, and done:-) This is predominantly a true red micro glitter, and has a decent amount of small round silver glitter in there to make things interesting. This polish is what I wanted OPI 'Gettin' Miss Piggy With It' to be, when it came out so sheer. Then came China Glaze Love Marilyn, and I couldn't find it... so when I found this I was so excited! The only difference I can see is that the silver glitter in this is round, and in LM it's hex shaped. I don't know how they compare formula wise, but from what I read, LM is also a 2 coater, so if you  aren't picky about the round/hex thing, they are close enough!

  1. Cha Ching is a great vday mani! I'm still waffling between picking this one up or ordering love marilyn. There were so many dupes with these glitters!
