That is pretty S&S, and I like your ring.

Night before last I did one quick coat of 'In the Mist' by Sinful Colors. It's a nice shade of green, and maybe I will get the second coat on at some point.

Mani for the next few days. I'm not liking the accent nail but I'm too lazy to change it until things start chipping. Orly Swizzle Sick with accent Kleancolor Blackout.

Haha! That is too funny. What a coincidence. I really like this shade of pink. Day 3 and there's just a little wear at the tips. I may get 4 or 5 days out of this which is a rare thing for me.

I love the crackle but can never ever get it to work right.

I got some Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in Lava this weekend. I *love* the color, but it sure does chip easily!

It's probably in here somewhere but I have been flipping through these pages for what feels like hours, and i can't find it.

What are the best base and top coats?

I'm using essie rock solid as a base and no chips ahead as a top coat but i'm looking for something better..

I really wish I could answer this question for you. If a base coat seems to preform better, it destroys my nails. Top coats seem to have a different result based on the brand of polish. It gets frustrating. I would like to find one of each that works well.

I useNailtiques formula 2 plus as a base and Essie good to go as a top. I have good success with both with all my brands of polishes.

i like the treatments in the pic and also nail aid products (thanks rcc)

as for a top coat i REALLY like the orly quick dry products specifically sec 'n dry and in a snap. the sec 'n dry is what i have on in the pic above. works really well, high shine, fast drying (i literally polish my nails in bed before going to sleep) and mani seems to last good.

On my fingers, OPI's Chapel of Love. It looks a little orangey in some light, which I don't like. Not my nails:


On my toes, OPI's Blue My Mind. LOVE this color. Again, not my nails:

I picked that one up the other day and decided to use it this morning. Love the color. I did CG Liquid leather as a base for an accent nail.

Nubar Bronzo. No nail art for me for a week or two. I can't see well enough. But, the leaves are art enough.

I did a quick coat of sinful colors over easy on my fingers and toes, with a matte top coat.

I need buy some light bulbs. I painted my nails at the kitchen island and as of right now I have 1 working can light and 2 dimly working island lights. I keep finding spots that I missed.

I've got on Essie Mushi, Mushi. It's such a pretty pink but I did such a terrible job close up that I had to use instagram to make it look better . Tomorrow I'll put some shine over it and it'll be better.
