Hi! I hope you've had a fun weekend. Mine was pretty nice. I went to The Cheesecake Factory with my parents and hubby (mega yum), took the dogs to the dog park, hung out in the pool with Sid, watched a movie, and work was pretty good today. I also scored some great deals at Walgreens after work today. I get all excited with those "you saved blah blah so much money" things near the bottom of the receipt. Supposedly I saved thirty some bucks, so that's pretty sweet. Nail polish was involved, too! I got Three new Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear glitters and two new L'Oreal bright colors.
Last night I did my mani/pedi. I have Color Club 220 Volts with China Glaze Wireless Holographic Topcoat on my toes. 220 Volts is a lovely bright blue neon. And as you may have already guessed, I'm sporting Nubar Greener on my tips. I also topped it with the Wireless holo topcoat.
Obviously the last picture is a little blurry, but in a way it kind of shows off the sparkliness of the holo topcoat. I apologize that my cuticles look a little pink. It might be because I was feeling lazy about using proper remover and decided to just quickly (and carefully!) nip them. Then again, they may just *look* more pink than usual because they are starkly contrasted next to the vivid green of the polish. Green is opposite to red on the color wheel, thus one color bringing out the other. That's entirely possible.
I'm really pleased with this mani because it survived a busy day at work and normally I experience some kind of damaging wear when I work (scratches, chips, dulling). They still look almost perfect! The Poshe topcoat was trying to shrink back on me - you can probably tell in the pictures, but I wrapped it around the edge of the nail and it kept everything well enough in place. I'm still experimenting with my various quick drying topcoats to see if I can find a fool-proof technique! I love that the Poshe feels very strong and hard and also looks super shiny and glassy. It usually dries very quickly for me, too. I'm not thrilled that it's quite thick going on, but I could probably stand to thin it out a bit.
