Oh goody, I get to play with another fugly polish!

Greetings polish nerdies! Welcome back for the 3rd installment of #ArchiveAtrocities! Today I found something I thought I’d tossed! On one hand, I was so thrilled to find it because… #ArchiveAtrocities! Yay! On the other hand, finding it meant I had no choice but to swatch it again for your enjoyment. Boooo.

Deborah Lippmann Marrakesh Express (above). Ugh. Still just as nasty as it was back in Holiday 2014. All that glitter crap gets stuck in the brush and for me, it makes using this stuff an absolute torment. We won’t even talk about how many coats this is (3 lumptastically nightmarish coats). This is my 3rd attempt. My first looked like maybe I’d never painted my nails before - ever. The 2nd, I tried to use China Glaze Cabin Fever as a base but the two polishes didn’t play nice together and it came out looking like I painted with both my eyes closed. Yeah. It’s not good. At all. Until…

Deborah Lippmann Marrakesh Express over Black Magic (above). Ta da! I know, right? Just when you thought I’d never achieve greatness with Deborah Lippmann’s Marrakesh Express, I totally nailed it! Or my Revlon Black Magic did. That’s one coat of each and you know what? If I saw you wearing this combo, I’d probably come right up to you and ask you what it was. Coming from me, that’s a huge compliment!

Now get the heck out of here and head over to my Instagram to leave me your 🙈 or your 💕. Feel free to leave comments too – we love reading those because they make us all lolz.
