Hiatus again, sorry!

Tried the Laquistry Cotton Candy polish over a blue base (and a purple) and I love it. Looks so much better than over the pink Milani polish. Here it is over Pop Brave Blue and Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer.

Petites 580 Daze with LA Girl Glitter Addict Uninhibited on top. Daze is a nice bright metallic chartreuse. It's thin so that's about 4 coats there. Uninhibited is a black glitter that has really small round glitter and slightly larger hex glitter. It applies a bit dense so I was careful to apply it thin enough to not overwhelm the base color.
On the index finger is Milani Neon 507 Pink Hottie with Laquistry Cotton Candy on top. Pink Hottie is a nice bright light pink, it's fairly opaque but takes at least 3 coats to get rid of visible nail line. The Laquistry polish is gorgeous, small blue glitter and multiple sizes of bright metallic pink hex glitter. I'm going to try this on a blue base next. The pictures here do not do this polish justice at all. Please go here and look at all the pretty pictures and buy it for yourself to truly appreciate how nice it is!

Black Lancer Catfish
The jet black body with a thin white line makes me think of black eyeshadow with a tight white liner. The shape of the fish's body is also interesting, the dorsal fin is sharp and thin while the back has a gentile curve.
The rainbow iridescence of this snake is gorgeous. The orange-red with navy rosettes could also be an interesting color combo on the eyes.
Red Spotted Coral Crab
This guard crab has serious style, with a white to light pink body and bright red polka dots.
South American Red Tailed Catfish
My favorite fish, I love the contrast between the charcoal grey and white belly. The red tail provides and beautiful pop of color. Perhaps a soot gray cut crease over white shadow with a thick red winged liner.
Saltwater fish that inhabit color reefs are renown for their beautiful and bright colors. The sunburst anthias is no different but I particularly like the slightly purple pink and sunshine yellow combination. It's colors I love to use together when the weather is nice.
