Way-Cool Mani Wednesday: Busted Fancy Pants

I've really been trying to shop my stash lately. This hasn't stopped me from buying new polishes, but it at least it has me re-visiting some stuff that hasn't been used in awhile. I'm challenging myself every week to do a mani using nail polish that is 1 year or older in my stash. This week I used two!


Polishes Used: China Glaze Fancy Pants and Pure Ice Busted

Fancy Pants actually has a subtle shimmer to it, but I wanted to amp it up. I wanted to steer clear from glitter, that is always my go-to, but I'm trying to go outside the box. I found Pure Ice Busted. This is probably one of my first polishes I ever bought when I got into nail polish. It is probably 5 years old. I had to revive it with some thinner! It all worked out nicely!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I have PI Busted in my collection but I haven't used it yet! I keep waiting for the perfect layering idea to pop in my head.

  2. Gorgeous combo!! I have both of these and they are fantastic polishes. Fancy Pants also looks amazing with a red/green color shifting topcoat on top (I used Girly Bits Shift Happens once and it was amazing!). Also, I remember buying Pure Ice Busted when I first got into nail polish because of Chloe's Nails (Busted and Heartbreaker!!). They are both so great for layering!

  5. Beautiful combo. Fancy Pants was one of my favorites from the Avant Garden collection last spring. I love that Pure Ice polish too. I need to shop my stash more too. This is also one of my oldest polishes and I had forgotten about how pretty it was. Thanks for the Way Cool Way Back Wednesday!

    I loooove PI Busted, though I don't use it as much as I should (thank you, large amount of untrieds). It adds such a pretty shimmer to just about any creme!

    When I bought Fancy Pants I was hoping it came out exactly like this, but it did not because the shimmer was to subtle. But you just create the manicure I always wanted before I bought Fancy Pants! It is amazing and even prettier than I hoped for.

  12. It does! I really think shimmer topcoats are amazing, but they definitely have been put on the backburner because of glitters lately.
