Wooo!!! I've fallen off the map a bit. It's nuts over here, we're preparing for Penelope's baptism, which is Sunday. Not only that, but Pipp has become slightly clingy (typical for this age…6.5 months). Jay & I were sick for the past two weeks & Jay has been hogging the computer. : )
I am trying to rearrange my schedule to fit my (Insane Amount) day to day schedule, so bare with me. I promise to get some fun stuff out!!
Hope everyone is awesome & Happy Monday…it's the start of another lovely week!
So, last night I popped into my nearest Sally's Beauty Supply. I needed buffers, files, & Seche Vite Top Coat. Of course, I scanned the nail polish over & over & over. I found an Orly The Original French Manicure Kit. With the baptism coming up, I thought this would perfect to test out, plus it could be my baptism day polish. Yes, I totally think about these things in advance. The kit is labeled "pink". The kit contains Orly Top2 Bottom (ooohhhh, duh Top 2 Bottom) a base & top coat. This stuff offers UV protection= no yellowing from the sun. There is also a shade called Pink Nude & white color, White Tips. Direction description & guide stickers.
The accomplished look was very time consuming, but I anticipated that. I began my mani & the french mani process around 7:30pm and had slight sheet marks on my nails=too much polish…go lighter. Lesson learned. I am glad I test drove it because, I could've gone thinner with the polish. I also think I may utilize one of my Essie's for the sheer color, rather than the Pink Nude. I'd like something a little more sheer & pinker. All in all, I could've gotten a new white polish, UV top coat, & guide stickers for roughly the same, maybe a little less.
Ultimately, I am enjoying playing with something different yet classic.
