I don’t really do “swatches” because I just think the time involved to take off that much polish will seriously hinder my desire to do my nails. I just do regular old manicures – base coat (ridge filler & strengthener), 2-3 coats of color, quick-dry top coat. Then however long that lasts is how long until I take it off. I can’t stand chips, so after I see a chip, the color comes off in about a day. Yes, this means I do my nails as much as 3-7 times per week. Usually around 3 or 4, but sometimes more depending on the quality of the polish and the state of my nails.
Although, I must say that I REALLY want to start doing swatches, just so I can get out there in the nail blogging world. Don’t worry – I still do my makeup everyday, so I will have plenty of Looks to post too (if that’s what floats your boat) :-) I haven’t taken pictures of myself in a while though, and this admin program has not been nice to me, so I may not look as pleasant as you remember… But only 3 weeks left! Then I’m DONE!!! Can’t wait!! Ok…on to some pics…
Holy crap batman! This is one amazingly awesome polish to look at!
Is it blue? Is it green? It’s like the color of clear ocean water – the kind you look at and think “that’s the most beautiful water in the world…can you believe how beautiful it is?” This was 3 coats. I love the shimmer and the duochrome. It really flashes blue, teal, and green depending on the angle. There’s still some VNL (visible nail line), but it looks so pretty, who cares?! Come on…you know you want to see more pictures!!! Read the rest of this entry »
