(Please excuse the poor lighting in the photo. I’ve only have my nails professionally painted twice, and this was the second time–just last weekend. I snapped this picture in the salon).
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.)
Just playing with holiday colors today…
Red – Butter London Saucy Jack
White – OPI Alpine Snow
Glittery Green – Zoya Ivanka
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. :)
Sometimes right before I take off polish, I do a bit of stamping. I do this for the following reasons:
So, this is what I did tonight. Although, I’ll be taking it off soon…
Note: Every few months or so, I trim my nails down pretty short. This is just one of those times. Give me a month and they’ll be a more normal length. But hey! Short, stubby nails need polish, too, right? ;)
Today I’m wearing one of my favorite winter holiday combinations. In October, you ask? Absolutely! I’ve been filming some holiday cardmaking videos and it seemed fitting to have red nails.
This favorite combination includes two colors from last year’s holiday collection from China Glaze: Velvet Bow (a deep burgundy) and Ring in the Red (an awesome red glitter). I love layering the glitter on top of the cream polish. It gives it such a deep, rich look. :)
I’ve been sporting super simple manicures recently. I tend to go through phases when I want something more involved (stamping, gradient, etc), and then I go through “just the polish” phases. Currently in the later. It surely makes manicures less time consuming. Ha! ;)
Today I’m wearing Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack. Such a pretty, deep teal. Perfect for fall. The shimmer is more apparent in the bottle or in direct sunlight. I sort of love the creamy look without the shimmer, too, so I love this polish in all lights. As usual, the RBL formula was buttery and smooth. :)
