Happy Hands Motherboy

Welcome to Day 4 of Happy Hands week, showing the wonderful polishes of the "I've Made a Huge Mistake" Collection, inspired by one of my favourite shows of all time, Arrested Development. Huge thanks to Dazzled for providing these!

Today's polish is probably my favourite of the entire collection. It was definitely love at first sight--this is Happy Hands Motherboy!

Michael: Sorry that my son couldn’t be here.
Stan: Let me guess. Girlfriend. You know, it could be worse. He could want to marry your mother. (Laughs.) Oh, I’m sorry. Is your family not laughing at that yet?

Motherboy (the polish, not the awkwardly oedipal mother-son weekend cotillion...or the heavy metal band...) is made of satin-matte, pastel glitters in a clear base. It has big seafoam green hexes, a light yet bright pink, teeny pearl-white bits, and lavender/lilac hexes, as well as lavender squares. Love it!

I am so crazy about this combination! It looks wonderful over light, pastel polishes, but my favourite look is over black for the awesome contrast. And this is just one coat, brushed normally! It spreads beautifully and so easily, just a really great formula.

Happy Hands Motherboy and the rest of the "I've Made a Huge Mistake" Collection is currently available at Dazzled, and I am absolutely going to be getting a backup of this one. I feel like there is so much more I could/should be saying about a polish this totally adorable, but I keep just looking at it and getting all smitten and tongue-tied. Love, love, LOVE.
