Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hi everyone!! I'm alive!! First of all, I want to say Happy Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it)! I hope you all get to spend time with family and friends and eat way too much. :)
Second of all - I want to apologize for my disappearance. Work has been kicking my butt and by the time I get home in the evenings, I usually cannot find it in me to muster up the energy to edit and put photos up. :( But, I am getting better and getting more used to my schedule so I should be back to normal soon!

I wanted to share this awesome polish with you. I actually wore this when my boyfriend and I went to see Catching Fire last weekend, but as soon as I put it on, I knew it was a perfect Thanksgiving mani as well! This is one of the new textured polishes from L'oreal, and it is called I Like it Chunky. Haha! I lol'd at the name in the store, but it was so pretty I had to get it. Check it out!

I'm not sure what makes this polish feel so perfect for Thanksgiving...I think it might be that the color kind of reminds me of sweet potatoes haha! Here's another shot.

So, quick story - I actually didn't know these were textured polishes until I swatched them lol! I'm sure it said on the display, but I wasn't paying attention. Once I did one coat, I got a fun surprise when I saw that this dried like a Liquid Sand. So anyway, since I had this smooth, shiny image in my mind for this polish, I had to make it happen! I used one coat of Gelous and one coat of Seche Vite for the following photos.

How gorgeous is this?! I loved it textured, but I think with topcoat, it's just so much more vibrant...and you can pick up on all the sparkle so much better. What a stunning polish! This is definitely a unique color in my collection, I can't think of anything even close to it. Here's one more shot with topcoat!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this polish!! Would you wear this for Thanksgiving??
Again, I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday! Enjoy family time and yummy food :)
