The last few weeks I have been rocking polish free nails. My work absolutely destroys my nails on a daily basis, so I try not to do anything too fancy that I would be disappointed that could potentially chip off the day I roll into work. Feeling the fall buzz in the air, I perused my polish collection and picked out a few polishes that reminded me of fall.
– Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear – Golden-I
– Sinful Colors Professional – Lets Meet
– Spoiled by Wet & Wild – Don’t Be Cheesy
– Sephora X – Chaotic
– Sephora by O.P.I – Matte Top Coat
I alternated between the yellow and orange, saving the gold polish for my ring finger on each hand. I used one coat of Sephora X over the top and two coats of the matte top coat.
There was a time were I hardly paid any attention to my nails. I would occasionally throw on a solid coat and be over it. Within the last year or so after discovering so many personal lifestyle blogs, it has rekindled my love for fancy nails.
I used to have long fake nails that I adored. I did a lot of really awesome designs like fish tanks with real shell pieces, inlays of different colors, and all kinds of holidays. I moved and change jobs, and started working in a field that no longer allowed me to have acrylic nails. I stuck with a basic clear cost for a long time and recently started amassing a small collection of nail polishes again.
One thing I never tried were nail stickers. They always seemed complicated and that I would mess my nails up and would have to start over again. I saw simple French tip nail stickers at the drug store and decided to give them a try.
For the most part they worked out. I had a minor casualty where the sticker lifted the base color, and pictured above, a lovely botched paint job on my thumb. But all in all I think they came out pretty decent for a first try.
