Today I have a Loreal polish from the new London Fall Collection. My first reaction when I saw this polish was - this is truly hideous. If I had a trench coat this color I'd throw it right in the trash or burn it, and that's saying a lot for a coat loving lady like myself! It reminds me of old dried out putty or mustard that lost its pizazz. Ew, ancient mustard?!? Hahaha so why the hell am I putting it up on my blog or better yet what on Earth possessed me to buy such a color? Well because for me this is the type of polish that falls into the realm of ugly-pretty. It's neutral, a great base for creating something unique, and because even though it looks like 10 year old putty even putty has its place in my world.

Plus let's face it I knew I had a secret agent up my sleeve. A hidden ace in the pocket, if you will, by the name of Sonoma Nail Art Bubble Room. Omo (basically Korean for OMG)! Suddenly ugly pretty was just pretty...
|Suddenly gorgeous right? TBH I felt The Perfect Trench should have originally had a golden microshimmer.|
And because I gotta do me I decided this mani was in dire need of arting up and a pretty paisley patterned stamp was calling my name.
Base color: Loreal The Perfect Trench Coat
Glitter topcoat: Sonoma Nail Art Bubble Room
Stamping polishes: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Haute Chocolate & Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Fuschia
Stamping plate: BM-315
Suddenly this manicure became so gorgeous to me! I'm in love with the monster I created how about you? Hehe this just goes to show you an ugly, albeit pretty, polish can't keep a good laquerista down. Thanks so much for reading and see you next post! Toodles...
