Happy Hands Tricks Are Something...

Nearly the end now--thanks to Dazzled, this is Day 6 of a week-long look at the Happy Hands "I've Made a Huge Mistake" Collection, inspired by Arrested Development...

Today's polish is another great glitter, named for magician Gob Bluth's oh-so-eloquent explanation of the difference between tricks and illusions; this is Happy Hands Tricks Are Something A Whore Does For Money... Or Candy.

Michael: So, this is the magic trick, huh?
Gob: Illusion, Michael. A 'trick' is something a whore does for money.
[Michael indicates the crowd of children watching them.]
Gob: Or candy.





Happy Hands Tricks Are Something... is a predominantly silver glitter topper with green highlights and bright, golden stars (love the stars!). Depending on the light, the green looks like it could be seafoam or lime...I don't even know what shade to describe it as, but it's super cute!

This is just one coat, brushed normally, over Essie Going Incognito. Serious glitter payoff! Great density, easy to spread, and without fishing (or remembering to turn the bottle over for a couple of minutes beforehand) I still came up with a gold star on 6 of 10 nails. With the green highlights, I think this one would look awesome over lots of colours, including any shade of green, or a light grey, or especially black!

I love the rich, sparkly look of Happy Hands Tricks Are Something A Whore Does For Money...Or Candy. It seems like a simple combination, but it's totally lush! And yes, it and the rest of the "I've Made a Huge Mistake" Collection are currently in stock at Dazzled. ^_^
