Last of September- China Glaze Blk-Bila-Bong

This is the last polish I wore last month. I can't believe it's October already! We are getting excited for Halloween here. My daughter and I are going to be cats (surprise, not, lol!) and we're getting started on Halloween coloring sheets and little crafts.

I love wearing dark colors year-round, but having cooler weather set in makes me feel a little less weird about putting them on. Blk-Bila-Bong was released by China Glaze as part of their Surf's Up collection in 2007. I got my bottle as part of a Secret Santa swap. As far as I know, this polish is getting hard to find. Here is my first picture of it.

I used OPI Ridge Filler Base coat and two average thickness coats of the color on top of that with Poshe top coat to dry it all and enhance the shininess. I think with glitters and glass flecked polishes such as this one, that having extra gloss on top really helps to bring out the color which can sometimes seem hidden. In the following picture is what it looked like most of the time on me, and I feel this is the most color accurate shot that I got.

The things that I like most about this polish are that it applies nicely, dries pretty quickly, and is very well named! Blk-Bila-Bong is a black base with aqua glass flecks and dark blue shimmer. I wish I could sit and stare it this color with a bright light and a magnifying glass all day. I want to drown in the depth of this beauty! This is one of my last shots, sorry for the tip wear! I like how the cool tones are accentuated under this type of light.

Do any of you like Green Day? The song "When September Ends" has been on repeat play in my head as I've been writing this post! 

Things are kind of crazy here, but not, as they always are! I've been casually job hunting and picked up applications but along the way there have been a couple small road blocks to getting those babies filled out and submitted. First of all, when looking over my old resume, I noticed that a couple of the places I've previously worked have gone out of business! And my refrences list seems to be missing in action. I'd better hustle and get that figured out if I want to take part of the retail madness fun of the holiday season! Well, time for me to go feed my critters then color my claws! I have been eyeing the pretty leaves starting to fall and have a fun idea on how to incorperate them into my next set of pictures.

Happy Scratches!
