What nail polish do you have on at the moment?

nail aid and essie feed me as base coat

nina bittersweet (free polish for renewing my sally's beauty card)
china glaze loft-y-ambitions
opi gold crackle
orly in a snap quick dry top coat

i like the look and the bittersweet is nicer than i thought on me. i decided to do a different nail as the accent nail. i get tired of always doing the ring finger. once the shatter was on you can't really tell that the nail color is so different.

i have decided i prefer sec 'n dry to in a snap. sec 'n dry is supposed to dry multiple layers quickly and i think it does. in a snap has uv protection which isn't as important to me.

A lovely shade of orange by l'oreal. There's more polish on my toes than on my nails but she had so much fun doing it!

Nail art so subtle (shhhhhhhh) only your manicurist knows for sure. This really doesn't show up in real life. I should have swapped out the medium taupe for a black. Oh well, they can't all be winners.

I have been a bit busy lately and have not posted pictures in a few weeks. I did my nieces nails this weekend in feathers ( it turned out cute but what a pain!) and then i did my #3 son's girlfriends nails for homecoming. About a week ago I did my nails in Orly Oui, its very pretty. I thought it looked a lot like Zoya's one polish called Daul ( picture with the flower is Daul) And then I did my nails with China Glaze Unpredictable with a holographic top coat and a snake skin foil, my camera did not capture it as well as it looked in person.

RCC- If I can remember, I'll make it matte and take a pic before I take it off. In general, I think grays and browns need some shimmer in them to look good matte. Without it, they are really flat looking.
IRL if I hold my hand at arms length, I can barely see that there are different colors at all.

I love the blood drips too Jeep.

RCC- I took a pic of my last mani matte. Sorry that the picture quality is terrible.

I did lazy man's galaxy nails. They turned out to be more work then I expected. The star polish is gloppy and hard to work with. If I got enough polish to get stars and not just glitter, the polish was gloppy, dripped and made the first layer of polish slide off. This mani is one coat of the navy jelly I made, one coat Wet n Wild The Star of The Show, final coat of my navy jelly.

I am very pale and thought Don't Pretzel my Button would not look right on me, but seeing how you used it as a french mani I think I might go back and get it!
