Pink elephants

I just really wanted to paint pink elephants. I have a vague childhood memory of watching the movie Dumbo, and there were pink elephants in it. Other than that, I don't even know why.

Polishes:
Left to right: China Glaze "Skyscraper", American Apparel "Mount Royal", "Coney Island"
I've been itching to wear China Glaze "Skyscraper" ever since fall started. Skyscraper is a gorgeous, denim blue packed with tiny little silver glitters. The jelly-ish texture gives the polish a lot of depth, but it is prone to dragging, so it's best to wait in between coats. The first coat goes on a bit streaky, but it levels itself out and reaches opacity with a thick-ish second coat.
Hope you enjoyed this random little bit of nail art today!
