ABC Challenge: "K"

Today I have for you the letter K in the Alphabet Challenge.  I was excited for this one as I knew exactly which polish I wanted to use.  I had picked up several polishes from the China Glaze On Safari collection.  I had seen several swatches of Kalahari Kiss and knew I needed to have it.  Well....I don't think I like it on me.  I think it leans too yellow for my skin tone.  I'm kind of bummed but I can always swap it to someone who actually wants it.  Due to the fact that I didn't like how it looked on me, I wanted to spice it up somehow.  I decided to add a glitter polish that I have yet to try from Icing called Teal Me I'm Awesome.  This is the second glitter polish I've tried from Icing and I'm quite impressed.  I only needed one coat of top coat and it was smooth.  I actually liked the combo together but I'm just not a fan of Kalahari Kiss by itself on me.  Maybe it's due to me just wearing a more nude polish yesterday and I'm nuded (yes, I'm making up words!) out.  Enough of my whining!




What are your thoughts?  Do you think it looks better layered?

  3. Besides I'm Not Lion, Kalahari Kiss is my favorite color in the On Safari Collection

    1. I have I'm Not Lion and haven't tried it yet. Maybe I should try a gradient with KK and that one. Hmmmmm

  4. Yes yes and yes, it definitely looks better layered!!!
    Those teal sparks add so much interest to the otherwise a bit... boring color!
    You actually made it soar!!!

    1. I'm a sucker for nudes which is probably why I wanted to like this so much!

  6. Definitely looks better layered. But then, I'm extremely partial to teal. :) Loving that teal glitter polish! And personally, I don't like the color of Kalahari Kiss. It's like a baby poop looking color to me. Not my style. But, to each her own! :)
