Hello, everyone! I hope the weekend has treated you well. I worked all weekend so there wasn't much of a break for me. Today was the Pride parade here in Chicago, which is fun to go to if you enjoy big crowds and lots of fluorescent colors :) I had a heck of a time getting home from work, the train was packed! The highlight of the day, however, was the person I saw wearing a t-shirt that said, "Vaginas are Gorges"...wouldn't you proofread before you had a shirt printed? Oh well, I got a giggle out of it lol
A quick and easy manicure today. I was in the mood for something colorful and sweet and I think I accomplished it.
Here I started with 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails in No Hard Feelings, a lovely lilac creme. I actually think this color would look better on someone with a darker skin tone than mine, but I do so love my purples, I can't give them up! On top of that, I added a coat of Nicole by O.P.I. in Step 2 the Beat of My Heart. It's chock full of large pink and purple iridescent heart-shaped glitter in a clear base with little iridescent flakies in it. I had a hard time applying this because the little hearts did not want to come out of the bottle. I did quite a bit of fishing to get enough out to cover my nail. I wanted a bit more of an iridescent finish so I added a coat of Confetti's Ice Ice Baby, which is a fun effects polish; tiny icy blue-green iridescent glitter in a clear base.
I like this manicure, but it's a little too sweet to wear for too long. It fit the mood at the time, but it'll be coming of just about as soon as I post this lol I seriously have polish commitment issues! Of course, that's part of what makes nail polish so much fun :)
Thanks for stopping by!
