Two Manicures!

First is a nice swatch post of my current manicure.  This manicure is China Glaze's Sea Spray, which I got won in the most recent polish giveaway I won!  I love this color - it is a beautiful, opaque, blue-ish gray that reminds me of a humid, grayish day down at the coast - not the prettiest of days but still better than being in the city.

This polish went on nicely, and the above photo is two coats.  It was mostly opaque in one coat, but I probably would have noticed some thin spots in the sun, so I went with two coats.

The next photo is a manicure I did for someone, and the colors were mostly random choices.  I think it ended up looking pretty neat, and it shines when you look at her nails, so, very pretty!

I didn't clean up around her nails because I didn't bring my q-tips to the place I'm staying at, but they turned out looking pretty cool, right?  This is two coats of China Glaze's Grape Pop and with one coat of OPI's Absolutely Alice on top!  I definitely like the dark under the bright glitter of the blue.

Hope you enjoy!

Couple photos

Well, I will start off my apologizing for my absence.  It was the end of the semester and then I took some much needed time for rest.  I hardly painted my nails in the time between.  I do have a couple of photos to share, however.

The first is a photo of my nails with three coats of Zoya Elodie, one coat of Zoya LA Pop, with a base coat and a top coat of course.  The catch is that this photo was taken after an entire week of wear - I was very excited that there were no chips!

I have shown this exact manicure before here, but I loved it so much I did it again :)

The next two photos are of what is on my fingernails and toenails right now.  I got my toes done with China Glaze Ahoy and just had to put it on my fingernails as well.  Within a few days there have been chips on this one, so this photo is with chips fixed.  It's super rainy and downcast outside, so the photos are inside.  Unfortunately the true colors of Ahoy just don't show through here.

Ahoy is a beautiful dark pink with burnt orange glitter.  The glitter is glass fleck, I believe that is what it's called, and I just love the way it shines in the pink under the sun.  The application was really nice and it only took two coats, if I remember correctly.  I am noticing now that there is VNL in the photos, but I hardly see it at all under the light or in the sun, so don't be too concerned about it.

Thank you for your continued support and I hope to be back to blogging soon, despite an extremely busy summer coming up!  :)
