Today I have for you guys 2 of the polishes I bought during my visit to The Painted Nail. I have had my eye on 4 shades from The Painted Nail for ages, like seriously for almost a year now. A while back (October of 2010, I think?) Hayley from Paramore posted about how she had named these on her Tumblr It literally took me like an hour to find that post LOL. Hayley also posted about The Painted Nail here, figured I'd post that too since it took me a bazillion years to find. It was the first time I had heard of The Painted Nail, it was before I heard anything about them doing the Nail Failes reality show. Anyway, the point of that rambling is that I am a giant Hayley/Paramore fan and all 4 polishes she named went directly onto my *need* list. Then I kept waffling on buying them, they are a bit expensive compared to what I can buy Nubar for around here. I had convinced myself I didn't need them until I saw them in person at Cosmoprof in Vegas at the end of July. Finally I was able to actually get my paws on these when I went to The Painted Nail!
Whew, was that enough story for you? I actually got this combo on my toes for my pedicure at The Painted Nail and I'm wearing it on my fingers right now.....this matching mani/pedi thing for me is very very rare! Beware of You is a rich dark green creme. A nice forest-y green! I'm a green freak so I would have liked this one no matter what. Fantastic formula, on this. If you wear it alone I would suggest 2 coats, if you are layering over it you are more than good with 1 coat! I used 2 coats for the photo below.
H-Bomb is the companion polish to Beware of You, it is very fine green and gold glitter in a clear base. There is also a bit of chunkier green glitter sprinkled in there but you can't really see it in person. This is dense enough that you could put on 3 coats have it be pretty opaque, but it's also really great for layering. I used 1 coat of H-Bomb over Beware of You for the photos below!

You can buy The Painted Nail polishes on their official website here, they retail for $12.50 each. I'm not sure if they ship internationally or not
