Happy Thanksgiving!

A few days ago I did a manicure with butter LONDON Yummy Mummy and I posted about how much I love this color.  Since today is Thanksgiving I wanted something that looked fallish and holiday, but I didn't have time to redo the whole thing.  So I grabbed my new polish Minako from Daily Lacquer.  It has a base with a slight orange opalescent shimmer - not overpowering but noticeable with orange and blue glitter, stars and moon glitter and some bar glitter thrown in for good measure.  It's beautiful!

I layered it over Yummy Mummy and it gave me just the extra something I was looking for.

The polish went on nicely and dried quickly.  The surface of the polish was a little rough, but nothing two coats of top coat didn't fix right away.

I didn't manage to pick up any of the stars or moons but I did get some bar glitter.

I did a litle bit of dabbing to get glitter on most of the nail surface.  I think that was me though - I haven't worn very many glitters and I think I did the second coat before the first was completely dry and the glitter moved around a little.

I think this is one of my favorite manicures so far.  As an added bonus the pictures came out better than most of the ones I've taken and I didn't get polish all over my fingers and cuticles. :)
