One of the awesome perks of having an Instagram account now, is all of the IG-only contests I get to participate in! One such contest was held by @anonymouslacquer to help name her new tribute to Hello Kitty nail polish.
If you've been following me for very long you will know how I feel about nail polish names. I'm pretty opinionated about them- they need to be good! So of course I had to jump on the opportunity to come up with something inspired. And guess what... my name won! As if naming a polish wasn't a prize in and of itself (I mean, it's pretty cool, right?), I was sent my very own bottle of You Had Me At Hello Kitty!
Now on to the polish itself..
This glitter nail polish is packed with a huge variety of shapes and colors, suspended in a clear base. So many colors in fact, I struggled with what to use as my base polish. I wanted to use a color that had enough contrast to show off all the different glitters. I tried it over 12 different polishes (on my trusty paper plate) and finally decided Essie Lapis of Luxury provided good contrast.
There's a mix of opaque glitters, and also a variety of iridescent ones that add a sparkly dimension. My favorite glitter pieces? The yellow triangles! I don't know what it is, they are just so spunky!
I also want to mention the HK nail art on my index finger was inspired by a tutorial by IG@shay8815. It's one that I've seen on Pinterest for a while, and what better time to try it?
I don't see that You Had Me At Hello Kitty is available online yet, but you can shop the other fabulous Anonymous Lacquer polishes here.
Any Hello Kitty fans? I especially like HK stickers and stationary. Look what else I got in my package! My daughter was all over the keychain, and obviously the candy.
So..what do you think of the name?! If you don't like it, I don't think we can be friends any more.. ;)
