NOTD: Some Recent Polishings

As you may or may not know, I have recently become obsessed with nail polish. I have never had really nice nails. They’re very very bendy, weak, fragile, and they peel easily. I’ve never had to actually cut my nails since they’ve never grown long enough. But I have embraced my nubbins, and while they are far from the perfection that I see on some amazing nail blogs, they are at least polished :-) So I thought I’d share with you some of my Nails of the Day (NOTD) pictures. But beware – if you dive into the world of nail polish – there is no return!

Lippmann Superstar (3)

Lippmann Superstar (2)Lippmann: Superstar

Gorgeous huh? Well, this was after a couple of days, as you can tell with the tip wear. It’s a brown base with copper glitter. This was two coats and no top coat.  See a few more NOTD if you’d like! 

Zoya Zara (4)

Zoya Zara Zoya: Zara

One of my favorite purples. It has beautiful shimmer that makes it look gold and pink in different lights. Stunning.

RBL Coral (5)

RBL Coral with dots (3)

RBL Coral with dotsRescue Beauty Lounge: Coral w/Icing: Teal polka dots topped with Hard Candy: Sugar Daddy

This was my very first attempt at polka dotting. It reminded me of watermelon or something. I really wasn’t happy with it. RBL Coral is a bright coral creme that leans very orange on me.

OPI We'll Always Have Paris and Suede (5)

OPI We'll Always Have Paris and Suede (2)OPI: We’ll Always Have Paris + OPI: We’ll Always Have Paris Suede dots

Yep, they have the same name – one is the original creme version, and the other is a “suede” color.  Both are beautiful colors, and I think this time my polka dotting when a little better. My clean up still needs work. I cannot find a good brush for it, but I keep trying.

Prepare for my NOTD pics to get better…eventually! Thanks for looking!
