The caviar one looks neat. I can't imagine it getting through a workday, but I like how it looks.

I like it but it is a little bit lighter in color than I had hoped it would be, even with two coats.

OK, ladies. Here's a practice nail. Does it look fiery? It's for the Hunger Games movie, to put it in context. Fire and coal.


Amazing!!! So excited for the hunger games! May the odds be in your favor!

I love Pure Pearlification. I've put it over lots of stuff and loved it every time. Once my nails get longer I'll have to try that. It looks great!

Nice Zoyas. I'm always jealous of people who can wear yellow greens. I love them, but can't wear them.

Love the fire nails RCC.

Nada...my nails are plain. LOL

I just got my normal nails back. Not to guano this thread but does anybody have issues with the gel manicures making their natural nails weak and peel?

I've heard there is a difference between Shellac and Gel. The shellac won't do this. Any truth to that?
I'm giving my nails a break. They were peeling something fierce. I cut them all short, buffed out the peels and am letting them breathe for a bit.

I really need to do a pedicure, though. My toe callous is out of control (my right big toe always gets more calloused than the left one...I must walk weird!).

I have my Ped-Egg, a pumice stone, and this sloughing lotion from Sally's. Between the three (plus some really moisturizing lotion), I can usually get my feet looking decent. It takes a few days, though. I'm too impatient to do all that scraping at once.

I used a tutorial from midniteblue716 on YouTube. Mine came out differently, but I still think they're awesome and reminds me of what I thought of when I read about her manicure in the book.


Left hand



Right hand

I was kind of iffy yesterday with the one nail. But, seeing it as a whole manicure, I love it.
