L.A. Colors Metallic Purple

I have a Dollar Tree polish for you today, L.A. Colors Metallic Purple. I think it’s more pinkish then purple to be honest, but I love the color just the same. It was a dream to apply, no streaking or bubbling like I had on the Revlon Ocean Breeze manicure. I have one other L.A. Colors Metallic, it’s their blue one, which is teal in my mind’s eye. I haven’t tried that one yet, but I think that either would stamp well. I bought them with stamping in mind.




This is the longest I’ve let my nails grow to, and I know they will have to get cut down when moving time comes, but having them this long shows me I can do it. It’s very gratifying seeing them looking so well, I really credit it all to the biotin supplement that I am taking at 1000 mcg a day. I work hard to never forget it. And I use cuticle oil (you can use olive oil if you like, just as long as you use something it helps) once or twice a day if I think of it. I am sure the daily massaging of the oil into the skin around the nails helps keep them healthy and strong.

No news on the home front yet, we’re waiting and probably will be waiting for some weeks to come at the very least. I will update as soon as there’s news to share. I haven’t had time or motivation to stamp right now, we killed a SECOND black widow out back where I stamp so that has put a damper on my desire to stamp, out of fear of being absorbed in my work and not seeing one and getting the business end of its fangs. If only the acetone didn’t bother my son’s dad, then I would be able to stamp inside. Thank you for checking out my blog and I wish you happy polishing!

    1. It is a great color, I agree. It's definitely frightening to think that black widows are on the back porch!
