*i also use a brush dipped in acetone to clean around my cuticles. I love it!
Please know that I am mentally down for that challenge. The nails of my thumb got so brittle they broke and I have been so terrified since that I have decided to give my nails a break again. Maybe a week or two. I may participate in the last two weeks or so of the challenge.

Speaking of challenge. Did we ever agree to go polish free at least one week per month? Y'all need to remind me of these things!
RCC and Pedaheh, thank you so much!

Kayb ill post one in April too, I love these challenges! Ps the polish free week is still an amazing idea maybe we should set it as something easy to remember like the first or last week of the month?

Thanks Bretty. Please do.

Since the first week is already too late I vouch for the last week of each month, I may still need a reminder.

Pic 1) Milani Mrs. Milani and China Glaze Foie Gras, a craft scissors, and scotch tape.
Pic 2) Wet 'n Wild Black Cream and all the metallic, foil, and otherwise shiny polishes I had. I like it, but it isn't really my style. I probably won't do it again.
Pic 3)Sinful Colors Polar Opposites.

Ooh, that Sinful Colors magnetic polish is cool! I love the starburst pattern.

For the China Glaze polishes:

Blue= Splish Splash
Purple= Creative Fantasy
The Black/White (is as you all know) Whirled Away.

As for the Green & Navy: Green is Avon's Don't Be Jaded, the Blue is Avon's City Navy dotted with Don't be Jaded.

The ombre is Revlon's "Ruby Ribbon," "Fire Fox," Avon's "Rebel Rose," China Glaze "Hang Ten Toes," Santee "Pastel Pink."

My Zoya mani lasted almost a week before I wanted to change things up. Today I have on China Glaze Deviantly Daring with a coat of Live Each Other by Orly on top. This polish color looks diffrent depending on the lighting.

Not only did I go to Target last week and not buy any polish after looking at them, but I went to Sally Beauty yesterday and looked and didn't buy anything.

I have developed a new strength in myself that I didn't know existed.

While I was in Target a lady in the health and beauty section told me they're redoing several aisles and there will be all new stuff in H&B in the next couple weeks. I may not be so strong at that point.

The start of my green manis.
Pic 1) A quick and dirty pic of Finger Paints A Tough Art to Follow by itself. It looks black in most lighting conditions.
Pic 2) With a coat of Pure Ice Heartbreaker. It is a very shear turquoise-ish polish with green micro glitter. It makes my nails glow. I feel like I should be in the Emerald City.

I was not going to buy any new nail polishes, but we know how that goes.

Yesterday Sally Hansen's Black and Blue caught my eye. I love the color and the name. It makes me think of The Rolling Stones.

$10 says I will be singing "oooooh ooh, daddy you're a fool to cry" as I paint my nails.

I NEED green nails. Stupid Sephora drilling it into my head that its the color of the season.

I'm thinking a sort of teal-green. I know its a more emerald green, and though its my birthstone, I'm not feeling it for my nails.


I'm due to get my nails done soon. I got a gel color last time and it was worth it. 3 weeks, they still look great.

Today I did one quick coat of Sally Hansen's Bittersweet. It went well with my outfit, and is a pretty color, but I do not plan on wearing it long. I am in the mood for light or bright.
