I was super busy this week. We are house-hunting and have been to showings almost every night and we get home exhausted. For this reason, I picked low-maintenance polishes that would wear for as long as possible before chipping.
Two coats of Julep Dakota. No base coat, one coat of Seche Vite on top.
I wore this for three days. It's a nice gold-toned warm pink. It's hard to photograph. It has the characteristics of a frost polish without looking overt about it.
Next I slapped on two coats of Julep Brooke and one of Seche and called it a day.
Brooke is a sheer with purple micro glitter that flashes to gold in the right light. It's really pretty, this is the first time I've worn it on its own and not as a top layer of sparkle.
I wore this for 2 days.
We finally had Friday night to ourselves to unwind. I asked my boyfriend to pick a color to paint my nails and he said, "The color of your car. OH! With silver. OH! AND RACING STRIPES!"
...is this a car, or my nails?
I did what he suggested and it turned out ok. It's not my favorite. I used a base of a no-name silver, used two pieces of striping tape on my middle and ring fingers of each hand, and painted one coat of Sally Hansen in Blue It. I peeled the tape off before the blue dried and topped those with a coat of Seche.
This has survived two days but I'm going to change it tonight in preparation for the upcoming week.
