Hello Lovelies! Happy Tuesday! I took Monday off due to a horrible migraine, but I'm back! 

Today I have the final polish from Volume I of the Daring Digits 80's Hits Collection. I'll be starting on the 5 beauties from Volume II this week, and you do not want to miss those! 

I'm also extending the giveaway for a bit, since I really want to show all of these babies before ending the giveaway. :)

I purposely waited to use this polish, since it's so very unique, as well as a serious reminder of my childhood. Named for the Madonna song "Like A Virgin", this baby is a mix of every kind of white glitter imaginable in a clear base. If this doesn't remind you of the iconic modified wedding dress that Madonna wore while performing during ther very first VMA's (holy hell, now I feel old!), then you're probably way younger than I am and have never seen that performance. It was, in typical Madonna fashion, groundbreaking at the time and highly controversial. I remember thinking that Madonna was a genius. Everyone was talking about her - good or bad, her name was everywhere. Brilliant marketing!

This is 2 thin coats of Like A Virgin over a pink/blue gradient. I used Sally Hansen Pink A Card as my base (and let me tell you, This polish was the biggest PITA on earth!) and SH Pacific Blue on the tips and topped it all with NPB Glitter Food and HK Girl Top Coat:









 Despite really needing to work on my gradients on my right hand (did you notice? I've been swatching on my dominant hand! I suffered a horrible break on my left hand and have been letting it recover.), I really like the effect of the white glitter over the gradient colors.

Like A Virgin is literally jam-packed with glitter, yet is not too thick or clumpy. It applies smoothly and evenly, and the glitters were very well behaved. I did have the occasional stray bar glitter, but that was due to the shape of my nails and not the glitter itself. The large glitters are very heavy, so you will need to give the bottle a good shake (or keep it tipped upside down for a few minutes) in order to mix them in with the rest of the glitters. Like A Virgin does dry a touch textured, mostly due to those large glitters, so I added a coat of Glitter Food to smooth things out.

I love this polish. Just love it. There is something so beautiful about an all white glitter. In fact, had I not been photographing this, I would have worn this over white.

  3. I like the effect that it gives over the top. Makes me want to try it myself and be bold and daring. I usually play it safe with nailcolor...I may have to branch out.
