Girly Bits Eggnogoholic + stamping

Apparently, my pendulum is going to swing with each mani from a light color to a vampy one.  Maybe that's my new deal this year:  office appropriate then crazy each week?  Who knows?!

Girly Bits Eggnogoholic was from a holiday collection (of course, given the name) from a couple of years ago.  It's a barely off-white color that my grandmother would have called "almond," and it's in a translucent crelly finish that gets a lovely shine with one layer of topcoat.

VNL was certainly happening in all lighting conditions, but in that delicately feminine way that I think is pretty and not a flaw.  I'm wearing 2 coats here, but I'm not really sure you'd get to opacity even with 4.

The small, opaque gold glitters in Eggnogoholic are a subtly festive touch to an otherwise subtle neutral.  They're not holo or flashy, just a gentle break in the color.  I wore this to a meeting with the big boss, with no concern that it was anything other than office appropriate.

All of which had me kind of done with it after just a day or two, I needed a little more OOMPH.  Since I already thought I looked like an upscale holiday package, I added cute gold paisleys from the BPL-024 stamping plate to amp the effect.  While they look pretty brassy here, at arm's length IRL, they look more like gilt painted onto glass.

Rating:  Eggnogoholic gets a solid 4 out of 5 stars.  It wears very nicely and is almost flawlessly self-leveling, so if you're ok with the soft & sexy sort of VNL, it's all good.

Where to buy:  direct from Girly Bits.
