(like I’ll blog at LEAST twice a week, every week, from now on) … because I know I’ll just go ahead and break them. But I do want to blog more frequently, so here’s where I solicit compliments and encouragement to keep going 😉 Eh, eh?
Anyway, the first nail polish of 2011 is New York Color Long Wearing Nail Enamel 108 Polyester Pink Creme. It was a Christmas pressie from my dahling sister who is very attentive when I bring her to pharmacies and point out exactly the colour of nail polish I would like for Christmas, in no uncertain terms 🙂
Polyester Pink Creme has a very thin formula, so you can’t overload the brush. I also had the tendency, using this, to overload my nails with polish. It dried very nicely though, no smudges or dents. It’s beautifully opaque in three coats – any less and you’ll suffer from the old faithful visible nail line.
As a base coat, I used Sally Hansen Power Shield Ultra Protective Top Coat. Yeah yeah, it’s *supposed* to be a top-coat, but it works amazingly well as a base coat, too. One coat above and beneath your nail colour and it locks it in for about three days. Superb!
I’m so excited about this colour, I love love LOVE it!! (Although, I say that about a lot of nail polishes. Perhaps, all of them.) Anyway, here are some things this polish reminds me of…
Another pressie I was delighted to receive this Christmas was a brand new ukulele! And, not only that, it is PINK!! I thought I’d show you my current manicure against the fretboard to contrast the colours.
I was in my PJs taking these pictures, which is why I didn’t take a full-length shot of the ukulele… it would have involved way more pyjama than I am willing to show to the world. Note to self – get dressed earlier 😛
That’s all for now kids, hope you are all having a lovely New Year!
