Emily de Molly - Pyrite

Whew, I went almost a week with naked nails! I just did not have the time to stop and paint them. At least they got a break from nail polish and in turn got a break from some yellowing. But I got tired of looking at bare nails, so I wanted to dress them up!

I decided on Emily de Molly Pyrite for my nails.  Pyrite is a beautiful bluish gray polish with all sorts of neutral glitters. It's very earthy to me since it's gray like stone and has gold, copper, and silver glitters in it.

The base seemed a little sheer at first, but two coats made it look great. It covered well, but I like how it's still a little sheer to give depth with the glitters in the under layers. The base even has a gold shimmer to it. You can see I got a little shrinkage on the tips, but that's probably my fault for rushing a little and also using Seche Vite.

The glitters are a little subtle in Pyrite. Like I said, they're pretty neutral tones, but they're still beautiful. Only some pieces are holographic and turn red, green, or blue in certain light, but for the most part the glitters are just metallic. 

I like it though! Since I had bare nails all week, having something relatively neutral on was nice. I didn't want to just grab the most glittery thing I own. Pyrite is still shimmery and sparkly, but it's just the right amount. 

I purchased Pyrite from Llarowe for $13.00.

Grab Bags!

Hey everyone! I'm moving soon and I really need to de-stash a little, so I figured I would sell some grab bags to make it fun and interesting!

Since I'm just trying to get rid of a bunch, I'm going to sell grab bags for $20 each, shipped (that means shipping is included!). Each bag (or box) will be in a USPS small flat rate box, and I'm going to fit at least 5 full size polishes inside each one safely (lots of bubble wrap!). You may get a 6th full size polish, some mini polishes, and/or some nail art supplies too. I'll fit as much in there as I can!

Bags will contain full size indie polishes and full size mainstream polishes. All items are either new or have been swatched once. Please let me know which colors you like or do not like when you email me! I will try to put together a bag to fit your likes/dislikes as best I can.

I am only selling grab bags to residents of the US. Payment will be made via Paypal with the "gift" option. Once the transaction is complete, I will email you your USPS tracking number when your bag ships (within a few days). All sales are final, no returns and no refunds. I am not responsible for lost or damaged items, sorry!

If you are interested, please email me at:
