Update on my computer: it’s dead. I’ll get a new one by the end of the week so life (and posts) willl go back to normal. You never know how bad I needed my laptop til I didn’t have it. Here’s a mani Monday that was a bit of a fail.
This mani only lasted 3 days before my nails got so ratchet I had to take it off
I used Sinful Colors’ Dream On. At first I loved the purple-ish color on the bottle. The formula was matte which I didn’t like, so I used my orly topcoat and changed many things. The color changed to a more red color and the Polish was no longer matte. Maybe that contributed to the chipping. Less than 5 days later the nail polish had totally chipped. My nails were so ugly I decided to just take off the nail polish.
For this week, I decided to go with polishes I found at Sally’s. They had a clearance sale and I bought 2 Orly Epix nail polishes, along with the sealing topcoat for $2.50 each, so I was very happy about the savings. I bought Such a Critic, which is a nice purple color. It looks like a purple color with pink undertones on the bottle.
One of the first things that I noticed was that this nail polish was super light. I used 3 coats of this nail polish. I waited around 15 minutes before applying each coat, just to make sure that the polish was dry. After the third coat, I applied the seal coat. This is the first time I use an Orly nail polish and this particular type of colors are the flexible colors. These type of nails require two steps: the color and the top coat that comes along with the line.
I love the color, it is a cute purple color and it is great for summer. The only thing that I did not like about this nail polish is that as it dried along with the top coat, the nails became streaky and uneven. If you look closely at some of my nails you can see that in the middle of the nail, it almost looks translucent. But from far away, I guess no one will be able to tell.
I love the colors, but I just wish that the consistency was better. But for $2.50 each, I will take it!
For this week, I decided to sparkle. I went with Stevie by Zoya.
This is a beautiful lilac color with lots of glitter. This is one of Zoya’s pixie dust nail polishes which not only include glitter, but texture. I love it, these nail polishes remind me of the L’oreal Paris sparkly nail polishes I love.
What are you wearing this week?
Hey all! I know it’s been a minute (more like a 80 years) since I last posted, so I’m sorry about that. I’m nearing my last days of college and calling these days hectic would be an understatement. So many things to do, so little time…but we’ve got to pull through! Here are the nail polishes that I wore these couples of weeks.
For this first week I used an ELF nail polish called Mango Madness. Remember when elf sold nail polish? At least online. I’ve had this polish for quite a few years so I was surprised it still worked. *elf does sell nail polish, I haven’t seen it online, but I have seen sets of polishes at Forever 21* If you want to achieve this nail color but can’t find this exact one, use Bump Up The Pumps by Essie.
Here is a classic color, this has been one of my favorite nail polishes for the longest time. It’s Purple Potion by Sally Hansen. I love it so much I have 2 bottles of this color. I haven’t been able to find more bottles of this in store, but if I ever find them…you know I’m snatching them up. I like it because it’s purple, with hints of blue and pink. Very electric, very awesome!
Here are my Easter nails. Since I am graduating soon, I’ve been cleaning out and packing up things so I’m starting to use some nail polishes I haven’t used in a some time. I was very surprised at how well this manicure came out. I’ve had this nail polish for years and I they haven’t been used in a long time. The pastel green color is called Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen and the purple/pink is Lilac Pastelle by Revlon.
What are you wearing on your nails right now?
Hey everyone, sorry for not posting as frequently but things are getting real busy 😦
This week I am rocking Dream by Zoya. I absolutely love this nail polish.
It’s dark blue but it has little specks of glitter. It makes me feel like that one scene from La La Land.
What’s on your nails?
