i've been on a bit of a nailpolish kick lately. i don't usually paint my fingernails because, well, frankly, it never lasts longer than a day. but i've been poking around some nail blogs and picked up some tips for longer manicures and thought i'd try them out. and then i found the most awesome nailpolish at a local discount store and the rest is history. i've become addicted!
the polish that started my obsession (OPI Designer Series DS 007):
and then i came across some fun China Glaze polishes (full size bottles, from left to right: Dynasty, Luna, C-C-Courage, Drastic, Good Witch?. and the mini bottles - i really don't know what collection they're from -, top row left to right: Something Sweet, Light As Air, Re-Fresh Mint. bottom row: Peachy Keen, Lemon Fizz, Bahamian Escape):
base coat, top coats. i only just bought the Seche products this afternoon, i haven't had a chance to try them out yet. the Essie No Chips Ahead top coat was applied yesterday. i haven't been too hard on my nails since then so i don't have a quality comment on how it's holding up. yet. anyway... on to the picture:
and my current home-made amature manicure. i'm wearing China Glaze in Drastic and Essie No Chips Ahead top coat:
