Simple Manicure

Girly Bits Razzle Dazzle

November 26, 2012

Not exactly an autumn color, but this is what I wore on Thanksgiving Day. :) Two coats of Girly Bits Razzle Dazzle over one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pink. Since I hate the gritty feeling of glitter polishes, I topped it off with a coat of Gelous and then a coat of Seche Vite. Those two topcoats smoothed everything out and I had this manicure on for five days with only the slightest of chipping on one thumb. Other than that, like most glitter polishes, it held up great!

Razzle Dazzle is a polish I just received in an order from Llarowe. It was my first time shopping with them and it was a great experience! Super fast shipping, too.

(NOTE: These photos were two days after I painted my nails. There’s just a bit of tip wear on a few.)

OPI Live and Let Die

November 16, 2012

On my nails at the moment, and I’m loving it even more than I thought I would: OPI’s Live and Let Die. It a nearly black, dark teal. Hard to describe. But I like it. :)

Nail Stamping

Before-you-take-of-the-polish Stamping

November 13, 2012

Sometimes right before I take off polish, I do a bit of stamping. I do this for the following reasons:

  1. It’s great for testing out different stamp designs. This design was hard to stamp because you had to get the placement just right.
  2. Testing out different top coats over stamping. Essie Good to Go and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri smear the stamping, while Seche Vite is perfect still.
  3. If I like how it turns out, I stretch the manicure a couple more days.

So, this is what I did tonight. Although, I’ll be taking it off soon…
