This shiny little thing goes by the name of 'Take the Stage'.
My aunt entered both our names in a contest to win the minis (including tickets to see the film and a CD of the soundtrack), and I won! I didn't find out about it until after she got the good news so it was a really lovely surprise.
To be honest I felt like the movie was just Coyote Ugly with more sparkles, but I do actually like the soundtrack. I'll leave it at that since it's a little late for a movie review at this point. (It came out five years ago already?!)
Back to the nail polish!
Sadly another slight case of 'by the time I noticed the picture was blurry it was too late', but I think you still get a good idea of the colour.
As far as oranges go, I feel like it leans towards the darker ones a bit and that's what I like about it, it's just not quite that common shade.

OPI - Pineapples Have Peelings Too!I am all about the name with this one. It's fun and silly and I'm always in for a pun. That said, I'm not remotely into pineapples, but none of those had to be eaten by me for the purpose of this post. Moving on.
With this combination I think there could have been a lot of similar things done to it and ruining it completely, but the way it is now gives it a very festive vibe. When seen in the bottle I feared it might be very visually busy on the nail, but given that it actually takes a few goes to get a nice assortment of glittery bits out, it's all in your hands.
It also reminded me of the work of Gustav Klimt, if you can sort of see what I mean?
Lots of yellow. Lots of coloured bits.
Following are pictures of it applied after I added a matt top coat. The 'regular' photo's unfortunately turned out blurry, but to the eye there wasn't a huge difference between the two.

Oddly, I just can't seem to remember the brand name unless I'm looking directly at the bottle. It's Flormar. I don't think 3,50 a bottle is all that cheap. I have a lot of fancy nail polishes in my collection but at the end of the day I'm basically a
They did have a very nice collection from which to choose and I tried to narrow down some obvious favourites to things that would work to complement my stash and not just be the same thing in a different bottle. After prying my eyes away from some nice greens, I settled on this light blue. My friend vouched for the quality of the polish, and I don't really have a light blue that covers well and so the choice was made.
It goes by the name of 'JL09 Sky Blue' which is certainly appropriate enough.
