Pink Wednesday: Diamond Cosmetics Hot Lips

I have been a frankening fool today. I'm currently working on my third bottle! I almost forgot that today was Wednesday, so I figured I'd better get on it and work on a Pink Wednesday post. Do you wear pink on Wednesdays?
So, I had recently got several pinks, but I figured I'd better pull out a nice bright shade, a last fling with summer. Diamond Cosmetics Hot Lips seemed perfectly appropriate! This is one of my favorites - go figure, it's super bright and it's a jelly. Win! I used two coats for this, since I knew I wanted to try layering something over it. I could have probably gotten it pretty opaque in three, though. This dries super shiny - since it's almost a neon, it's that bright! - I was pretty surprised.
As a topper, I chose China Glaze Glacier. I remember the first time I ever tried Glacier, I thought I could wear it alone. I probably could, but it never got opaque. It's a very sheer white base with rainbow sparkly fine glitter. SO pretty.



Obviously, my photo doesn't do Hot Lips justice - it's much brighter than I can capture, but that shot is the closest I came. If you can see from the bottle, it's a blue leaning pink. If you want to get a better look at the pretty sparkles in Glacier, you'll have to click to enlarge this.
