Yesterday one of my lemmings arrived.
I try to be pretty frugal about my nail polish budget - hence the whole less than five bucks! But I decided that life was too short not to buy really pretty nail polishes that will make me happy.
So I went looking for Mad as a Hatter and found an Ebay store that sells a heap of OPI ranges including the Alice in Wonderland collection. So I bought 2 bottles at $15.90 each. To me that's a lot of money for some glitter in a varnish but oh well, it sure beats the up-to-$30 I was looking to paying for it on Ebay only a month ago.
I decided to compare it with Adoree Hamilton Blue just because.
They are obviously not dupes :)
Mad as a Hatter has larger sized glitter in purple magenta (mostly) aqua, salmon and possibly some other colours but I can't work out right now because the bling hurts my eyes.
Hamilton Blue is aqua, light red, gold or silver once again - bling hurts my eyes. Hamilton Blue however isn't as sparkly as Mad as a Hatter possibly because of the size of the glitter.
Both of these are two coats - using the dab method.
I am very happy to have both in my collection because I am a bit of a glitterati. Bring on the next lemming,,, Happy Birthday!
This week I had this on my nails:

Easy to apply and it lasted for 5 days before it chipped. Value to money I think.
ILNP - That other girl - Over the last few months, I've not done as much nail art because of the difficulties with my foot (which is making me particulary grumpy at the moment, bec...
