Pink Wednesday with Shocking Pink

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but I gave up polish buying for Lent. It's been really hard. Fortunately for me, Sundays don't count as part of Lent. Sundays are feast days celebrating Christ's resurrection, so it is inappropriate to fast on these days. That's why they aren't counted in the 40 days of Lent. Shopping only on Sundays has made the sacrifice more bearable and still kept me from buying too much polish. Before this past Sunday, I'd gone two weeks without buying a polish. That's HUGE for me lol. In my mini shopping spree on Sunday, I went to the mall. Someone in PAA mentioned that Hot Topic polishes were buy 1 get 1 free. My Hot Topic had them for half off, so different words, same savings. I picked up Shocking Pink. This is two coats Icing Chic Chic Horray (white) and two coats Warpaint Beauty Shocking Pink.



It's a lot brighter in person. One of my earliest polish memories is of a neon pink I got at the $.98 store in high school. It covered in 1 coat and was super bright and shiny. I lost it and since then I've tried to find a neon that compared. I was always super disappointed because I didn't know the best way to show neons is over a white base and with a topcoat to make them shiny. Oh the things the Internet can teach you! I then stamped over it with L.A. Colors Circuits and Cheeky plate CH16.




I've been obsessed with this squiggle design and have been waiting for the best time to use it. I absolutely love this!
