GMU Friday - Hello Kitty

Happy Glitter Me Up Friday! OK so it's Saturday now but it was worth waiting for some sun today to take these photos :)  It's really quite disappointing when I put on an amazing sparkly polish and there's no sun for photos.  I can use flash but I much prefer daylight photos.

This is Hello Kitty Violet Salome.  It's the only Hello Kitty product I have but I'm so impressed I'm going to have a look for some more.  I just remembered I have a stamping plate somewhere with a Hello Kitty image.  I'll have to give it a try but I'm pretty bad at stamping.

Violet Salome is a really fine micro purple glitter.  It looks like a glass flecked foil on my nails but it is really a glitter, I checked with a magnifying glass :) It has a lovely duochrome effect in the bottle that unfortunately doesn't show on my nails.  This glitter actually reminds me a lot of the TKB Star Bites powders.
It's such a gorgeous purple.  Depending on the light it can look burple or almost fuchsia.

This is 3 coats with base and top coat.  It dries smooth and shiny but chipped on one nail (right hand) within a few hours.

Hello Kitty Violet Salome is a tiny 8ml bottle.  I picked this up from Priceline on sale.  Look at those colours!

Now go check out the rest of the Glitter Me Up Friday players :)

  1. Holy crap. This is a stunning polish. Where did you find it? Im in love with it.

    1. This was in my local Priceline. They have a small Hello Kitty display but it was hidden down at ground level behind a dump bin, on sale. Let me know if you want me to hunt one down for you :)

  2. Wow, look at that bottle shot. How amazing if it looked like that on the nail!!! I still like it though, it's definitely my kind of polish! Glass fleck + purple is a winner for me. I can't say I've seen this brand at Priceline but I might keep an eye out :)

  3. Wow! Wish it kept the duochrome on the nails! Soooo pretty! My sister has one of these HK polishes and I did a manicure on her, and it lasted like a week without chipping!

  4. Wow this is beautiful! That bottle shot is to die for!

  5. So pretty, I'll be keeping an eye out in my local priceline for this one. :)

  6. This looks lovely! I've never seen them in Priceline but I'm going to be on the lookout now!
