Canmake 18 + So Laque Bleu Violet

I've been in a rut that feels suspiciously like depression. I can't really pinpoint it but it feels like I'm slogging through my life recently, uninterested in everything that previously interested me. Even nail polish doesn't really lift my spirits the way it used to.

Canmake 18 layered over Bourjois So Laque Bleu Violet

This nail polish combination made me smile though. First of all, the Bourjois Bleu Violet is a blurple creme (two coats of it was pretty much opaque and it was SO glossy, though the photo I took of it made it look dull) and I love me a good blurple creme. And then the Canmake 18! Sure, it's sheer glitter but it was so incredibly sparkly and the little opalescent bits against the blurple made it look like the glitter from Street Wear FX Green! My only regret is that I only used two coats of the Canmake; I should've used three to try to get more of the opalescent hex glitter on. This mani was taken on the fourth day of wear: it wouldn't really chip and without it chipping I was very unwilling to take it off!
