TGIF: Happy Hands Stuffed!

This week's TGIF: Thank Goodness, Indy Indie Friday! is 'Stuffed' by Happy Hands!! I wore Stuffed over FingerPaints Catwalk Queen for my Thanksgiving NOTD. Love this festive polish with its great mix of glitter finishes. I did just one coat of FingerPaints Catwalk Queen and one coat of Stuffed on my ring fingers and thumbs, with some glitter tips on the other fingers. 

From the Happy Hands description, "A mix of matte and metallic glitters in brown, lime, white, red, yellow, orange, garnet, and more - it's a cornucopia of warm-toned glitters!"  The bottle is also STUFFED with glitter and it took me forever to get it off; I love it. My favorite parts are the twinkly holo green glitters and the magenta bar glitters. This does have bar glitter, but they are shorter and thicker than traditional bar glitter so I don't get the 'hairy' heebie jeebies from this polish :D

I wore this on vacation, but if I had been at home I would have maybe added a drop of thinner. As I said, this is one super stuffed glitter! I also experienced a lot of chipping with this combo for some reason (something that really doesn't happen to me that often, sorry for the bragging haha). However, most likely the chipping was my own fault for not wrapping my tips very well and/or bad prep (the remover I used was 'protein enriched' or something; a different one than what I usually use and definitely not regular acetone) so I'd have to wear this again before I'd really know if the Happy Hands formula chips on me or not.

Now I'm curious, do you have this polish? Love it, hate it, meh it? I LOVE IT for Thanksgiving!! I'm not sure how I'll wear it out of season, though.

Happy Hands are available on their Etsy store ($10) and at Harlow & Co. ($11). You can view updates and new colors on the Happy Hands Facebook page and on the Happy Hands blog!
