Bonita Miss Piggy

I've been on quite a pink polish bender lately... sorry, I'm not sorry! This might not be a new all-time favorite pink, but it's definitely secured a place in my top 10!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
5 Coats Bonita Miss Piggy
3 Coats Butter London Rosie Lee (accent)
2 Coats Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I've been meaning to feature Ms. Rosie Lee for a long time... I mean, I've owned the polish for over 2 years now, and it's slightly embarassing that I'm only getting to properly swatching it now. It was a gift from my lovely sister... who's usually the tour-de-force behind my fancier, more spendy polishes. It's what big sisters do... :)

So, can I say that I love the shade of pink that is Bonita Miss Piggy? It's like it was made for me... a really flattering slightly yellow-leaning rose-tinged hot pink. This color pink is PERFECT. What is not perfect however, is the formula. Opaque polishes that require 5 coats are just nawt my cup o' tea. After the 5th coat, I waved my white flag and top-coated, hoping some of the small patchy spots would work themselves out, and it looks like that happened. I did feel compelled to add a whole lot of clear on top, because I just wasn't satisfied with the finish on Miss Piggy. After 2 coats of clear and a thick layer of Seche, I'm pretty happy with the shine factor.

My accent nails each took 3 coats of Rosie Lee, but I think I could've gotten away with just 2. One great thing about this polish... it packs a TON of sparkle. Rosie Lee's got a seize-the-sparkle-approved level of glittery goodness, that's for sure!

I'm really loving this manicure. So much so, that it just might make it's way onto my nails again next week for vacation! I'm never sure how nail painting will work out while I'm traveling, though. Usually I plan not to paint, but I bring supplies just in case... so... guess we'll  just wait and see! o.O
