Barielle Falling Star

I've been wanting Barielle Falling Star for quite a while, so I was very glad to get it in a swap a few weeks ago. Part of my attraction to Falling Star is that it's blue and (sort of) bronze (though it's really more copper), which are Ravenclaw colors, and I'm both a rabid Harry Potter fan and a rabid Ravenclaw. However, it's also simply a gorgeous polish and absolutely unique. There is nothing like Falling Star...except Falling Star. Unfortunately, it was rainy and gloomy when I wore this, so I only have inside pics. This was two coats with Seche Vite.

Falling Star was a bit dull and a bit gritty without top coat, but that is truly it's only fault, and a coat of Seche Vite fixed it right up. I wore this for four days with one small chip on the third day and a tiny bit of tipwear, which is an eon for me lately - I can't remember the last time I got polish to last that long on me AND actually wanted to wear it for that long. The pictures here were taken, I believe, on the fourth day of wear. As far as picture accuracy, the base is a bit more dusty than the pictures show, and the polish as a whole is much more vibrant and gorgeous in real life. The glitter isn't always in your face (not that there's anything wrong with that...Mad as a Hatter, anyone?), but it's definitely there. 

Falling Star is absolutely one of my top five nail polishes now - and that may be a theme this week, because I got GOSH Holograhpic in a giveaway, it arrived Friday, and I'm wearing it now. I'm waiting for the sun to come out for me to take pictures, but I hope that happens at some point this week. If not, I may go ahead and post it anyway because it's absolutely amazing.

Aaaand, finally, here are a couple of new nail polish blogs I found this week - they are both definitely worth reading, and they both have some great nail art. Check 'em out!

    Congrats on 200 posts!

  2. Thank you! I immediately thought Ravenclaw simply because I'm a huge
