L.A. Colors, Pink Sizzle- awesome color!!!

Hi Kids!
L.A. Colors, Pink Sizzle is a gorgeous, soft, duochrome. This color is formulated a lot like my beloved Bleach Black, Dickweed, and is the type of polish that pushes all my buttons.
Pink Sizzle is a berry shimmer that flashes copper- but more. The shimmer is suspended in a hazy purple base, similar in shade to, but not as pigmented as,  Milani, Totally Cool. This color is nothing short of stunning, and would so be in my Top 20, were it not for the extremely thin formula and narrow, stumpy brush. I think I paid $1.49 for this polish- cheap enough for an experiment with a decap to see if evaporation will help thicken the formula.

Anyway, as you can tell, I Love this color! In real life, the purple base translates to having an obvious  purple haze around the edges of the nail. Both the purple haze and berry shimmer are cool toned, -the copper flash, however, is warm.

Pink Sizzle has been hanging around my mani desk, patiently waiting for the perfect purple stamping color. While looking for a bottle to empty for another go at franken-stampen purple, I came across a set of 3 colors I hauled last year. In that set was one of those tri color polishes meant to look like marbling. Out of curiosity, before I dumped it all out, I added 3 ballz and shook it. The resulting color was a neon, red purple- like China Glaze Flying Dragon but a bit redder. Thinking that this new color could be a keeper, not a dumper, I swatched it on plastic and noted the superior pigmentation.  A few fauxnad test stamps over swatch nails, Pink Sizzle included,-and  I knew I found my perfect stamping purple!

All pictures pre-clean up (why bother when I have stamping to do?)
Just look at this glorious color!!!

Here's a sample stamp over Nina Ultra Pro, Mermaid;

I can't wait to get stamping...unfortunately, I was called into work early :(

On another note...I'm really freaked out by the obvious twisting of my fingers- my pinky being the worst. Let me explain...
My paternal grandmother suffered from extreme arthritis. By the time she was 60 years old, her hands were monstrosities. I'm sure there is a proper, medical term for her condition. Gnarled fingers, huge joints, each segment twisted- some at opposing angles. They were very debilitating and way beyond hideous.
I have arthritic pain and ache, and I can see the visible start of that same condition. I cannot close my hand without fingers overlapping either.

I love duochrome polishes. They're just awesome!

:(  Awww! Sorry to  hear about the arthritic stuff. My mother had something called RA,Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her hands were okay,but her feet gave her such problems,she became unable to walk without falling.

On another note, have you received my e-mail? Just wondering when you'll be getting around to contacting those of us who won the contest giveaway. Thanks.TTYL!

As for the Arthritis stuff...go see a doctor NOW. There are so many things they may be able to do for it especially if you get in early. Seriously, don't freak out, ACT! Go girl, take care of you!
