Simple Manicure

Nicole by OPI Other’s Pale By Kim-Parison

April 23, 2012

Nicole by OPI Other’s Pale By Kim-Parison from the Kardashian Kolor collection. I have quite a few polishes from this collection and I really like nearly all of them. However, this one didn’t stay on my nails for too long (just overnight).

I didn’t love the color with my skin tone and it was so SO sheer that I had to do four coats and even then I could still see streaks. The perfectionist in me was screaming to take this polish off! But I imagine the color would look gorgeous on someone who is more tan. It’s a soft off-white creme. Much better than “White Out” nails, but still too stark for my pale skin in my opinion. :)

Simple Manicure

Zoya Bevin

April 21, 2012

I wasn’t sure about this color at first, but it’s really growing on me. :)

I love the colors that Zoya offers but I struggle with what top coat to use. The Zoya Armor top coat has major bubbling issues for me. I’ve tried it multiple times and I just can’t get it right.

So this time I used CND Super Shiney top coat. It seemed to work a little bit better. When I took the above photos, I only had a few bubbles. But over the next hour or so, just like when I used the Zoya top coat, many more bubbles developed. I think next time I’ll use even thinner coats of the polish and allow even more drying time between coats. I suspect that’s the real underlying issue. I’ll have to report back.
