"Cinderella" says "Today was a Fairytale"

Hello Darlings... 
How are you all doing today? Did anyone watch the Oscars last night? Fun show right? So happy for all the winners!
Something exciting happened to me last night. I also won an Oscar!!!! Yeah, you read that right, I won an Oscar! LOL... Granted my Oscar is not the real Oscar but, hey.. I'll take what I can get. 
Long story short: Love For Lacquer page on  facebook had a giveaway in honor of the Oscar awards for a lucky fan to win Julep nail polish - Oscar. I entered the giveaway and won! Hence my .. I won an Oscar comment. Lol... I gave a funny speech on my facebook page and   on Love For Lacquer page after winning my Oscar, and here it is: I would like to thank God, My parents, and everyone that supports my nail polish addiction, including my amazing boyfriend. I would also like to thank My love for nail polish that made me find a lovely page like Love For Lacquer and the amazing lady called Jess. I am grateful for this *OSCAR* and can't wait to put her on my nails...
*music cues in to stop my speech*..
Ohh Oh.. I also want to thank every of my fans over at The Do It Yourself Lady for their support.. and Oh My Gosh...
Thanks Jess.I pray you have a lovely week today! 
Lol.. I can be a comedian sometimes, but I Love me!

Anyhoo, Today I have a two new polishes to show you lovely people! Yesterday, I showed you a polish I got from my first swap, and today I have another polish I got from another swap! The polish I got in my swap is the most coveted Cinderella by Sinful colors!  I Layered a coat of Deborah Lippmann - Today was a Fairytale over her. 


And Here's Me Holding the Bottle off Deborah Lippmann's - Today was a Fairytale
Today was a Fairytale is a silver polish with small microglitters and large hexagonal glitters. I didn't have to "fish for" the big glitters, but the small glitters came out way too much and almost covered up Cinderella, so what I did was, I dabbed a q-tip in polish remover, and used it to clean off some of the small microglitters on my nails. Lol.. I was really careful not to smudge Cinderella. I used Color Club's Topcoat to seal the whole mani. 
Deborah Lippmann - Cinderella over Sinful Colors - Cinderella

And of course, here are some pictures of Cinderella  in all her glory. Such a pretty polish, but my oh my is she sheer and hard to work with! Here I used two thin coats and one thick coat. I love the glistening you see in this polish. Such a pretty shine and it's a baby blue I'm glad to own! 

Next time I'll layer her over another baby blue polish. Instead of building up opacity with just Cinderella.

Cinderella was such a lovely base for Today was a Fairytale!  And I also love how the names seem to work well together. Lol.. The real Cinderella's story is the epitome of a Fairytale... So coming up with a Title for this post was just easy! :-D

Thanks for viewing ladies. I'm glad to share this with you all my lovelies. 
Till Later, God Bless.
