Halloween NOTD China Glaze Dreamsicle and Lippmann Fade to Black

Some news I learned today made me stop and remember how grateful I should be for every day that I am here with my loved ones. It is so easy to take everything for granted. I've lost sight of my gratitude for my life lately in the midst of my miserably busy life as a graduate student, when I should be daily giving thanks for being able to be a graduate student.

This is all due to news about a former boss of mine who suddenly passed away in a car accident on Thursday of last week. She was a wonderful person and I am keeping her family in my thoughts.

For lack of a better transition....Halloween is coming up! It has always been one of my favorite holidays, even in the midst of all of the offensive Halloween costumes.*

I'm very sorry for so many crappy, indoor, nighttime pics! I simply am never home when there is sunlight anymore. :( I need a lightbox!

This is 2 coats of China Glaze Dreamsicle and 2 coats of Lippmann Collection Fade to Black. I know that Deborah Lippmann has had some really dumb ideas about nail polish lately, but I do love Fade to Black. I could have easily done 1 coat of it but for some reason I can't do only 1 coat with any polish, regardless of its opacity! I am also comforted by the fact that I purchased FtB for half price ($7.50) when it was on sale at Bath and Body Works. However, Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme is also a fabulous black creme for $.99.

Anyway, here goes...

With flash:

The picture with flash shows Dreamsicle more true-to-life than the other 2 pictures but it's a little less bright orange than that. It was easy to apply and dried very fast.

You can purchase Dreamsicle from most of the e-tailers and Sally Beauty Supply stores now. Lippmann Fade to Black may still be up on the Bath & Body Works website for a discount as well as on Lippmann's website for full price.

Thanks for reading!

Very sorry to hear your bad news. I've been hearing about so many deaths lately. They really hit you hard. We always reflect on life when there's a death. Hope you feel better. Love your manicure. Dreamsicle is gorgeous. I haven't worn it yet. I also forgot that I had it.
