So, I have decided that Seche Vite basecoat may be horrible. I’m not sure if I had fully mentioned about how my nails were continuing to chip the second day with it, but they were. And not only that, I painted my nails Saturday (Essie Bermuda Shorts. I really wanted to post about it because I love the color, but the color was so hard to capture that it kept coming out too pink and it was too annoying I couldn’t deal with it) and they chipped later that night. I was so bummed. So I’m done with the SV basecoat. And I began to remember everyone raving about the wear of the Sally Hansen Complete Mani polishes, and I do own a few of them from the summer line, but have never gotten around to wearing them for some reason. So, here goes one.
This is Ring My Shell (Such a cute name, right?). I felt like lightening up my polish because I feel like I have been doing such pigmented colors lately, so this worked out. I had layered this polish over a purple before and it looked so horrible and so frosty that I had to take it off. So since then I hadn’t thought about it. But I am going to give this polish a test run and see how long I go without any chips and test the wear. I know people say they last four to five days wearing it, so I will let you know how long it lasts on me. This color is pretty. It’s a light pink with tons of white shimmer. It seems almost bridal to me, which actually depresses me. I used three thicker coats. It is sort of sheer. I painted this color last night and with my workday being done today, I don’t have any chipping or tipwear.
I also was sitting at home one night last week sucked into an Internet blackhole and ended up buying some polishes I have wanted. I got two of the three polishes from the Essie North Fork collection that I have been wanting for forever. I wish I could get my hands on the green from it, Greenport, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere on the Internet which is also depressing to me. So I got Shelter Island and Sag Harbor. I’m sure I will swatch them soon since I have wanted them for so long. Does anyone know where I could get my hands on Greenport? Maybe I missed it somewhere.
Wishing Monday was already over,
