Portia

Zuza
Very nice selections.

I was inspired by a manicure I saw on pinterest. I love it. The base color is Wet 'n Wild Megalast I Need a Refresh Mint.

I'm still trying to decide on my Zoya colors. I'm LOVING their new summer creams and foils. Plus, I need to replace my dear, departed Kristen and Ray. I dropped the bottles and broke them.

This pic makes it look like these colors kind of clash, but they actually go together really well.

2 nails peeled completely off (like press on nails) the VERY NEXT DAY after I did them! AGHHHHHH!! Is it the base coat, the polish or the top coat that makes that happen? I'm going to re-do the 2 that came off without base coat and see if the polish sticks to the nail a little better.

BTW, a 3rd just peeled off. ugh

I just painted with essie "avenue maintain" for the first time. Love the color but I'm contemplating a matte top coat (also excuse the mess I haven't cleaned up the edges yet)

Mine tend to do this if I haven't wiped my nails with an acetone remover before applying the base coat. The natural oils on your nails could be the issue. Try wiping your nails off with nail polish remover to get rid of the oils first. Let the remover dry on your nails before applying a base coat, but make sure not to touch them after using the remover because you'll just transfer oils back onto your nails. I wouldn't skip the base coat because that's the adhesive.

Quick, somebody tell me that I do not need more OPI today! I am seriously considering hopping in the car and driving 30 miles just for polish.

I did my niece's nails for prom she was overwhelmed with my polish collection and I turned her onto Holographic polishes. I used silver holo by urban outfitters and on her ring fingers we used a foil called Stirling Roads. The last picture is her nails on the dance floor shinning like crazy!

Adorame- I love your niece's mani. Perfect for prom.

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Black Tie. It is a black with a green/purple duochrome. You can see the color shift best on my middle finger in the pics. I found it on clearance at K-mart. I made the nail sticker using this youtube tutorial. Not bad for a first try.
