I've finally recouped from vacation and back in action. I did get a gel manicure, and I was so disappointed! The polish started to lift the next day. Since I was hopping on a plane, I couldn't have her fix it. You can kind of see here where the polish didn't stick. I was mega bummed. The pattern was super cute though. I will definitely re-do this on my own with regular polish soon.
So when I got back, I removed whatever was left still on. (Yes, it was only on for a week, and I had significant chipping as well as two nails that had large chunks that just popped off!) One of the polish groups I belong to, we do a weekly theme for Mani Mondays. We were doing the alphabet, but we ran out of letters! So, then we just started to list other themes and ideas, so this week's theme is Emerald, which was the color of the year last year. This is what I did:
This is Zoya Ivanka and my new Different Dimension Money polish as the accent nail. These were really pretty together. Why do I love accent nails so much?? Oye.
Well I've mentioned before that I'm a polish picker. I can't help it! I think it's from the millions of years that I was a nail biter. So I started picking at this last night, and had to replace it. My last swap I received some super lovely Different Dimension polishes that were on my wish list, (which is where Money came from) and this was another one I received. First two are in full on sunlight, second two are in the shade.
This is Tulips Are Better Than One. How pretty is this??? I fell in love with this polish when I saw a swatch posted, I cannot recall who it was from, but it was so stunning. This polish is a super shimmery duo chrome shifter from violet to aqua to indigo. I've caught some dark pink / purple colors here too, but that's on some odd angles and on the far edges. And look! No accent nail. Well, yet. I wanted to swatch this in it's pure form before I do that. =)
So that's all for today, hopefully I will get back to posting twice a week now that I'm back and not freaking out about flying.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend, and see ya soon
