Favouring Fuchsia

The other day I spotted the new Revlon glitters at my local drugstore. After quick mental debate I decided to pick up two of them: Facets of Fuchsia and Starry Pink. Blue Mosaic looked nice too but I wasn't feeling it enough to shell out more money for it. Also, I got home to research and found out that there's a fourth polish in the collection. It was a shimmer so I didn't even notice it at the store :P Anyway, needing to get one of the glitters on my itching fingers I picked Facets of Fuchsia first after reading posts by Mandy of Pretty Making and Kristen of Glitta Gloves. Being a total weirdo I couldn't just accept the natural glittery goodness as-is so I went for another ruffian :$ 

I used American Apparel African Violet and American Apparel Hassid for the ruffian manicure and layered two coats of Revlon Facets of Fuchsia on top of the black.

You may notice that my nails are super short. I finally bit the bullet and cut them down. They've been peeling and breaking all over like crazy for awhile now so I gave them a fresh start. Hopefully they grow back quickly because I'm not used to being able to function normally- prying open containers, applying makeup without it getting under my nails, etc :P It's all very handy at the end of the day but I miss having a larger canvas to work on (hence the super tiny purple ruffian).

So tell my about your nail traumas! I'm here to give you a shoulder to cry on :P

PS. I also changed up my blog layout! Just the background and colour scheme but do you like? (:
