Sparkle, Meet Glitter: Zoya Luna and Alegra

I had a boring work mani lined up for today, but with yesterday's excitement (see Zoya's post on my mom's polish!), I knew I wanted to post something fancy. Alegra is one of my favorite polishes of all time - but it's not often that I have an excuse to wear it. It's a dense, fuschia, sparkly, glittery, shimmery, shiny polish.  That's really the only way to describe it. :)  Luna is from the 2009 UltraGlitter Collection which is packed with silver micro-glitter in a dove gray base.

I applied three coats of Alegra and a coat of Seche Vite. Then I freehanded Luna in a reverse half moon at the base of each nail with a small brush. It took two coats and some "dabbing" to get the opaque look but it was really quite easy.

The hardest part about this mani was cleaning the glitter off my cuticles. A day and a shower later and I was still catching glimpses of stray sparkles on my face...which I like to think adds a touch of pizzazz and mystery to my suited office attire. :)
