Share the Love Giveaway Prize 3: Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer You are NOT Alone

Well, time to show you guys my last prize for the Share the Love Giveaway!  Remember, you can enter here for a chance to win lots of amazing things from lots of amazing bloggers.  In fact, more bloggers have been added to the giveaway, so the odds are better for you to win!

Heh, sorry.  Oods are just cool.

ANYWAY, back on topic!  You are NOT Alone was a polish I made as sort of a nod to battling depression.  I've discussed this many times, but I suffer from severe clinical depression and anxiety disorder. It's something I'm very open about because I find that telling my story has helped others realize that they aren't suffering alone.  Sometimes, that's a very hard fact to remember.  If you ever feel alone and would like someone to talk to, my email is always open.  Enough of the serious stuff, let's get to the pretties!

Since this is a polish I made, I'm not going to do a normal review.  Instead, I'll try to showcase this bad boy in a few different ways.  You are NOT Alone is a milky pink based polish chock full of pink and copper shimmer, pale pink and gold hexes in various sizes, pink and gold holo hexes, lime-gold squares, pale pink circle glitters, holo pink butterflies, and holo gold stars.  The large glitters are actually really easy to get out of the mini bottle, which is why you're able to see so many in my swatches.  They came out easily and spread well.

In this first picture, I have YANA with one coat alone on my thumb, three coats alone on my index and middle fingers, one coat over OPI My First Knockwurst on my ring finger, and one thick coat over Deborah Lippmann Dancing in the Sheets on my pinkie.

Here are closeups.

One layer alone.

Three layers alone.

One layer over DL Dancing in the Sheets.

Next, take a look at one coat of YANA over five (yes, you read that right...) coats of Essie Pink-a-boo.  I'll have a review of Pink-a-boo probably next week.

Lastly, you can check out swatches done by the lovely Lacey of My Boyfriend Hates Makeup.  So, there you have it!  As always, my lacquers are not for sale.  I make them as a hobby, but I try to share them with you guys when I can.  There is a possibility that I may sell a limited number of these polishes to help raise depression awareness with proceeds going to a research and awareness group (which I haven't really researched yet, so that's up in the air).  When and if I make that decision, I'll definitely let you guys know.

What's your favorite milky pink based polish?
