I had a bit of buyer's remorse when I received my MAC Hello Kitty nail lacquers, Something About Pink and On The Prowl. Something About Pink was well...pink. It was similar to NYC Nail Glossies 235, but in a smaller Hello Kitty bottle.
I usually don't swatch a hand right away when I get new bottles. I usually end up buying in bulk (21 bottles is my record, but I have a feeling that this will be broken sooner or later this year) so I normally don't have the time to swatch each color, so I usually "skittle" my nails. "Skittling" usually gets me funny looks at work.
I originally wanted to use On The Prowl alone, but lately I've been having application issues (*looks at the poor Hello Kitty bottle* it's me, not you.) so I used OPI Paris Couture For Sure over 2 uneven coats of On The Prowl. I really like the effect; it makes me think of snowflakes on concrete. (If that sounds weird, I apologize; I'm a Florida girl.)
On other nail news, I'm thinking about creating my own light box. I found some DIY instructions here; I think it seems easy enough. I usually end up swatching at night, so I wanted a way to capture colors more accurately, especially neon/creme pinks and purples. Almost all of the pictures of neon/creme pinks I have taken indoors are pretty inaccurate. Do any of you own your own light box? Hit me up.
