~ NOTD: Lonely Eclipse and Nail Polish Haul ~

Did you guys see the Ulta $5 off $10 coupon? Sure beats the usual $3.5 off $10 coupon. And they are running a buy 2 get 1 free sale on nail polish too! So... even though I said I don't want to get more nail polish... I did.  Well, at least I got something that I needed, which is a base coat.  I also got a bright pink because all my pinks are very sheer or muted.  And I just had to get this Nicole by OPI in One Less Lonely Glitter.  It is part of a Justin Bieber collection.  I can't believe I got anything related to Justin Bieber but it's too pretty!  Anyway, with the coupon and the sale, I got these 3 for $11!  I am gonna go back and use the coupon on a new bottle of Seche Vite soon.  I am almost out!

So, I wanted to use One Less Lonely Glitter, but I wanted to layer it on top of a nice lilac color because it's pretty sheer.  But I only have plumish purples.  So, I mixed my own using Missha PP102 (it was $0.39) and Orly Lunar Eclipse.  I was just about to throw away Lunar Eclipse because I just don't like its consistency and the color is way more blue on my nails than in the bottle.  But it makes PP102 look so nice!!!  This is 10 drops of PP102 and 3 drops of Lunar Eclipse.

Here's the resulting color.  I put a layer of E.L.F. white nail polish the bottom so the color looks opague.  I love it!!!

So, this is what I used for my manicure today.  Haven't used this much on 1 finger ever!  There's the base coat, the white coat, the Lunar Eclipse mixed with Missha PP102, One Less Lonely Girl and my beloved Seche Vite top coat.  Crazy!!

But, it's so worth it!  I love how this turned out.  I must say that One Less Lonely Girl is an awesome glitter.  It's super super sparkly.  It has tiny glitter and medium size glitter.  I love it so much that I just stare at my nails whenever I can.  I am not sure I like this "Perfect Stroke" brush though.  It's so wide and it felt clumsy to me.
So, since I mixed the colors myself, I am going to name this combo "Lonely Eclipse".  I used to love mixing nail polish when I was in high school.  I used to do it in my room and spilled some on the carpet and got into trouble for it.  This is fun!  I should just get a bunch of cream colors from the Zoya promo and mix my own whenever I want!

I'm surprised by how pretty the Justin Beiber polish collection is ^_^ I guess even his nail polish is purty (god i feel like a pedophile ><)

But I didn't know you could mix polishes! It turned out really pretty - i hope you do more NOTD with mixed nail colors :D
