Today is day 2 of the 31 Day Challenge in the Crumpet Nail Tart group. Today's prompt is 'silver'.
For the prompt I chose to showcase Kismet's Pajamas, by Whimsical Ideas By Pam. I really feel this polish is nail art in a bottle all by itself, so I only did a small tweak to it. I'd like to believe that I could have come up with a perfect layering of glitters over black to make something this beautiful, but Pam put it all into one bottle so I didn't have to.
Kismet's Pajamas is a black-based polish with silver and purple hex glitters of various sizes:

When I first saw the name, I was really intrigued by it...I thought 'How deep! Kismet/fate/predestination wearing pajamas...symbolically, what does that mean?! And the polish looks like a night sky with fantastical elements! So cool!' Then, when I read about it, I found out it's named after her cat, Kismet--and that made it even better somehow. :)
As I say, I love this polish as is, and I struggled with the idea of stamping something over it to add more silver, or something similar. In the end, I decided the best thing to do would be to play up the silver already in the polish, which I did by matte-ifying it:

I love it both ways, and this is one of those rare manicures I actually wore for 3 days before taking it off, and even then didn't want to. This definitely tops my list of favorite polishes and I see a lot of use for it in my future.
Truth be told, every polish I've had from Pam has been a stunner. You can find her polishes on her Facebook page here; she sells via e-mail and Paypal.
I'll be back later today with another post featuring my "'Q' is for..." manicure. In the meantime, please check out the other silver manicures, linked below! :)
(I purchased this polish with my own money.)
