Well, after doing a little research on the polish, I soon realized that this little beauty wouldn't be an easy one to find. Apparently, this color was a Sally Beauty exclusive color from 2009. I've been to quite a few Sally's and have NEVER seen it in stores. So I knew I'd either have to buck-up and buy it off of eBay, or find someone online who would want to swap it for something I had or could get.
What I learned quickly is that if you just speak up, and let others know what you're looking for, there's a good chance someone out in cyberspace might be able to help. Sure enough, a friend of mine in one of the Facebook groups I belong to happened to have an extra bottle and was willing to swap with me! Only about a week after I mentioned my love for "Fortune Teller" online, it was in my hands! I can't thank you enough, Neeka! I don't swap very often, but this was probably one of my favorite trades (next to my all-time favorite, "Unripened"!!!!!!).
"Fortune Teller" is a beautiful black creme polish with different sizes of orange/copper hex glitter. For this mani, I used 2 coats of FT and felt that I got full opacity and didn't need a third. I also needed 2 coats of top coat, because this puppy just soaked up the first coat. Even after 2 coats of top coat, it's still a little bit rough. I'm thinking it might be worth investing in a bottle of Gelous. I don't use glitter polishes very often, but when I do, I want high shine and smoothness.
Ok, enough with the babbling. You're probably here to see pictures, right?
