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!

Any NailTek fans? Mine have been frustrating me lately so I think I want to try it.

Once. When I first bought "I'm Not Really a Waitress" by OPI, I used the entire bottle. It's the only time, though.

Oh I wish they'd said something like that on the display - I wasn't familiar with the line. I really didn't want that but I may keep it for tips anyway.

Once for me, too. Essie Ballet Slippers.

They probably figured that the bottle saying 'nail art' was enough.

But, yeah, it's still useable.

Yeah I'm no manicurist lol and can't really see the decals and detailing whatever other than for little kids but I'm typically a minimalist. I don't pay much attention to labels - I only care what the color name is! It does work for full polish though - at least on my small toenails should be ok or I'll just use a bigger brush. 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.

^^ I have gone through entire bottles of many colors of Sally Hansen Insta Dri. I'm on my 3rd bottle of some of the colors. I love this line.

I want Zuza! How do you like it? I have and love Charla but have only worn it on my toes. I want Zuza for my fingers (and toes!).

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.
Zuza is very pretty, but it chipped so easily! I don't have very good luck with my fingers, though, so next time I think I'll use it for a pedicure (I can get a pedicure to last for weeks!)

that's not good to hear.

That IS good to hear! I always use base and top coats, so I should be ok. It's still on my wish list.

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.

I do hate dry time, and love that line. I just started using it last summer. It chips quickly on me, but that's my fault. I seem to always have my hands in water. It's okay though. Gives me an excuse to try something different in a couple of days.

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!

If you mean the Insta-Dri topcoat in the red bottle, then YES. It is a miracle substance. I use it every time, nails are dry to the touch in seconds and rummage-around-in-a-drawer dry shortly after that. Nice and cheap, too.

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.
