The one with China Glaze Bend Over Backwards + some stripes!

Oh Monday. How I have a love/hate relationship with you. You mistreat me. Normally on Mondays and Tuesdays now, I have my 8-wk-old niece, Eliza...but my sister-in-law took today off from work, so I don't have her :( I miss her face! So today I have laundry and grocery shopping and making Christmas cards and baking cookies...I have a long list! So I'd better get on this post right now or I'll never get anything else done! :)

Today I have another of the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil polishes for you - a burnt orange shimmer called Bend Over Backwards. Love the color of this polish! I'm iffy on the formula, as it was a tad thin. Sometimes shimmer polishes run very thin, and they end up a pain to work with. This one wasn't a complete pain, but I had to use thin coats to get it going.

It's such a pretty color that glows in the sun! I decided to wear it for a few days, so I actually ended up messing around with it haha I have some Stripe Rite polishes from It's So Easy, and I thought I would practice with them. I chose a teal and a silver glitter...

I really liked the look! My stripes can use more practice, but for my first time really using this brushes and attempting a design, I don't think I did half bad! What do you guys think? :)
