Purple Week, Day 3: Dannii, Have I Always Had These?

I've always love the Kids in the Hall and for some crazy reason I thought of the following sketch while applying today's purple polish, Zoya's Dannii...(Video and pix behind the jump today. Video is slightly NSFW in a prosthetic way)

Danny Husk is Every Man. He's unflappable, even when confronted with his coworker's new breasts. "Danny, have I always had these breasts? Because I think they're new, like today...are those your hands?"


Kills me every time! So anyway, continuing my self-imposed Purple Week I chose Zoya's Dannii from their Spring 2011 Intimate collection. I got the set during their International Womens Day promo in March. Honestly, I didn't care for four of the colors and sent to an old friend and fellow Zoya lover in Washington State (Hi, K! If you're reading this :)). Dannii stayed with me. I'm not giving up a purple!

Dannii is not nearly as intense as my previous purples. She's not jumping in your face yelling LOOK AT ME!!! Her shimmer is subtle and fun. I guess I'd call Dannii the Purple Next Door.

A much better shot of Dannii's shimmer

It's a silvery shimmer but it's warmer in tone that yesterday's C-c-courage (which, BTW, was a glitterbomb mess to take off!). I don't know why I haven't worn Dannii before!

Application was a breeze. Used my only ridge filler, CND Ridge-Out, 2 coats of Dannii, and Poshe' top coat. I think another layer of Poshe' would give Dannii a glassier surface but I was short on time last night. I do have one fisheye on my left pinky, grrr. And I don't have a definitive opinion on Poshe' yet. I miss Seche Vite right now but until I can find a stinkin' bottle of Restore I'm stuck. I have CND Speedy but it doesn't seem to have as glassy of a finish.

Anyway, I'm hoping to score OPI's Nice Stems today at the mall. The owner of Blooming Beauty said the shipment was to arrive yesterday...we'll see. Wish me luck!
