Essie Cute As A Button with Set In Stones over. I don't really like it. Turns out I really only like SIS as an accent nail.

My daughter is a huge My Little Pony fan. This weekend, one of the ponies became a princess, so I did a Twilight Sparkle-themed mani. I did a braided mani using Zoya Suri, Sally Hansen Hard As Nails 01, and Sally Hansen Xtreme in Fuschia Power. I then added a coat of Rainbow Honey The Element of Magic for sparkle.

It looks pretty badass with a matte topcoat but I decided I want them shiny for a couple of days and then maybe I will refresh with the matte later this week. I'm keeping my nails very short due to massive peeling lately.

I wonder why my pics look so fuzzy on here when they are perfectly clear on my iPad.

Pic 1) Rimmel Midnight Blue. I used to just adore navy nails. I was kind of meh about them this time. Weird. Pic 2) With Pure Ice Oh Baby. Glass fleck shimmer that changes from teal blue to fuchsia. I loved this in dim light, where the color shift was most obvious. In daytime indoor light, I didn't like it. Pic 3) A coat of NYC matte (forget the exact name) and then stamped on top with the same Rimmel Midnight Blue as the base coat using Salon Express plates. I love it. Would have been even better without Oh Baby. Pic 4) Then I added a sponged gradient using Essie Trophy Wife and a bit of Pure Ice Oh Baby over the gradient. Love it. Next time I'd start with plain navy so the shimmer is a gradient too.

I attempted to make my nails a bit pointier, and then working retail has proved MURDER on them (go figure) and enough of them broke that I hacked them all off and I can't afford biotin at the moment so I am moisturizing big time praying for growth.

Grumble. My hands look ugly!
