Polish Days ~ The Number 5!

Hello Dahlings!

I decided I needed a lil challenge in my polish world & Polly Polish's Polish Days monthly challenge is just my speed. Once a month is about all I can handle. LOL
This month's challenge theme is:

 
Da Number 5! Five, five, what connects, relates or signifies da number 5? Let's go find out...
 
Da line up: Revlon Powder Puff Matte Suede, China Glaze Some Like It Haute & Orly Matte Top Coat (not pictured are my special mix base coat & Seche Vite top coat)

This is 3 coats of Powder Puff & it's still shows a wee bit of VNL. Next time it will get white undies! It does have a subtle blue sheen to it in person that is quite nice. What isn't nice is its not a fast dry polish & even tho' it tends to go on thick, its not very opaque. (ironically, it did pass my Does It Stamp? testing...go figure)
Oh? You want to know what my 5 is?

YAHTZEE!
I added da pips using my largest dotting tool & Some Like It Haute. This pic is without any top coat so you can see the matte/bling contrast.

For those who prefer an uber shiny finish...I added a coat of Seche Vite.

And for those who like a matte finish with glitter...a coat of Matte tc.

My thanks to Mr. Inky for letting me borrow some of his jumbo 6-siders!
My thanks to Polly for running this challenge & coming up with such interesting themes!
Thanks for stopping by & please go visit da others participating this month!

  6. Nice interpretation! Have seen the game around, but never had the chance to play.
    My preference - the glitter against matte ;)
