Goose's Gloss and Glitter moved!

Goose's Gloss and glitter has moved to a new address: Goose's Glitter

I did this mainly because I figured it's must easier to type the new address and also because I thought "Goose's Gloss and Glitter" made it sound like more of a makeup blog (which it's not... I hardly ever even wear makeup at all!)

Anyway, see you there!

Barielle Misbehaving Mistress

Today I have for you some pictures of Barielle Misbehaving Mistress. This has to be one of the most awesome colors I own. In some lights it looks just like beautiful dark pearls, while in other lights it looks more brown, and other times is looks more like a dark metallic charcoal. No matter what, it's AMAZING. Check it out!

You can see in the second picture that it shows brushstrokes just a tid bit, but really, it's only SLIGHTLY noticable in certain types of lighting (like direct sun). Otherwise it just looks mostly like a smooth pearly or metallic finish. Such a unique color, and I own nothing even remotely close to either the base color or the finish of this polish, not to mention that it's very flattering on as well! I think this has definitely made it into my collection of absolute favorites!

Halloween NOTD and Nfu-Oh giveaway!

Since it's October now, I'm getting super excited for Halloween, which is my favorite holiday!! I found a picture of a manicure like this a while back and wanted to replicate it, but it didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped...

Bear with me that I had to photograph my right hand for this one (which is surprisingly awkward and difficult!) because my Little Bird decided to wreck on of my nails on my left hand. Also, I had my left ring finger nail tear WAY too far down, so I can't clip and/or file it off. I'm in the process of finding a way to repair it; I tried Orly Nail Rescue, which seems to be fine, but I may put a thin layer of clear acrylic over it until it grows out enough to file it down. Anyway, please ignore the ugly bump on my middle finger that comes from writing too many notes in my aerospace classes!

China Glaze Marmalade & Art Club black striping polish

I used China Glaze Marmalade for the chevrons on the tips, then an Art Club black striping polish. For some reason, when I put Poshe topcoat on it, it pulled the black!! It looked kinda cool, but I would have preferred it to stay where I put it... :o)

I have some of the OPI Burlesque glitters and a few of the China Glaze Holiday 2010 collection coming from sometime this week, so hopefully I will have come swatches for you soon!

Oh, and Michelle from The Lacquer Files is having a giveaway of the awesome Nfu-Oh 51! Such an awesome color! Check out her swatches and enter the giveaway here!
