Thanks Fifi.
You can find Layla at Ulta and Aveyou.com.

Question for whoever wants to answer: (inspired by Fifi's post) How many manicures ahead do you have planned?

Me: 2 manicures (a stripe manicure and WnW gray's anatomy). I have tons of stuff bookmarked for inspiration.

I stopped in Walgreens today and they carry Essie and a whole lot! Somebody stop me! I bought Wicked which is a deep reddish-brown. I also bought Bad Chick from Sinful Colors. It looked more like a cream or off white in the store but on its like a white-out white. The brush was super skinny and ended in a pinpoint so it was very hard to apply. I just did one toe because not ready to do another full paint job yet.
The Bad Chick is meant for detailed nail art, not full nail painting. That's why it's a small brush.

I went to Target today and they had a ton of Essie colors and also had some magnetic polish on an end cap.

I'm so proud of myself, I didn't buy anything!!

Rou, I looked at strobelight then talked myself out of it.

I have a question, do any of y'all ever use up an entire bottle of polish? I'm not sure I ever have!

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Any NailTek fans? Mine have been frustrating me lately so I think I want to try it.

But, yeah, it's still useable.

This is a large bottle just for detaling. It's like 2x the size of Essie.
Thanks again Pedaheh.

I don't think I have ever used a whole bottle of polish. Oh wait! I did. It was my favorite bottle of glitter polish in the 90's. I put glitter on everything.

Even *more* useless info, I've never heard of Sandusky! LOL

I'm wearing Zoya Lola on my toes and Zuzu on my fingers. I'm really loving Lola; it's such a bright pink that's perfect for sandal weather.

I'm currently wearing Milani Key West. It appears more blue in the photos, but it's more teal green. The first photo is closest, but it's much shinier IRL.

I chose Zoya's Zuza! Its such a lovely eye catching shade of color. I had read on a few nail blogs that you might want to use a base coat with this color, a few girls that did swatches had staining. I used 1 coat of base coat, 2 coats of Zuza and then 2 layers of top coat to protect from chipping. I am Happy to report that after giving my 3 Yorkies a bath, I am still chip free!

I never color my finernails, just use clear occasionally, but my toenails are fluourescent yellow with big blue sparkles! Sounds crazy but comes out a really pretty sparkly blue. My toes are kinda ugly or I'd show you a picture.

Sunday was my nieces 6th birthday party, her theme was a Princess party so I did my nails in Happi by Zoya. Its a duochrome polish going from pink to a golden peachy color, I tried to capture it in pictures but it seems to not pick up as well as in person.


Yesterday I did some gardening and chipped up my nails when I scrubbed them from cleaning up, so I had a reason to do my nails again! This time I went with Skylar by Zoya I thought it would look even better with a bit more sparkel so I put a coat of Wet and Wild Blue Wants to be A Millionaire on it and it is very sparkly now.



Oh and Yes I have used up my For Audrey by China Glaze a few times, its been my go to color for the past few years now, I just adore the color!

Rou, I've never used the top coat. I can't find it in stock. Based on that, I'm sure it's good.

I've been using the china glaze base coat and fast forward top coat. I picked it up on sale at Sally's.
