I can always tell that winter is coming when I have to start reaching for the hand cream. Even though it's only the middle of October, we've had a couple of cold and rainy days in a row which made me reach for these subdued blues.

Illamasqua Raindrops was actually a lemming of mine for a long time and I had kind of forgotten about it until I saw it again one day at Sephora. Raindrops is a pale, subdued grey-blue with sheer silver glitter. It applied fairly smoothly for a polish with glitter pieces and achieved opacity at two coats.

 China Glaze It's a Trap-eze! was part of the Cirque Du Soleil World's Away collection and features multi-color small circular and medium hexagonal glitter in a soft, milky base. I'm not usually a huge fan of glitter nail polish, I like them for accent nails on top of other colors, but this one is definitely one you can use without a base color underneath and one I will definitely wear on all my nails in the future. I used two coats for the pictures and it removed like any other glitter nail polish.

Raindrops can be purchased for $22 CDN at Sephora.
And, if you're in Canada, It's a Trap-eze! can be purchased for $6.95 at NailPolishCanada.com. I have ordered a few times from this website and have been very impressed. Everything ships free with no minimum order, arrived very quickly and the prices are comparable.
