notd's

the fingernail look i went for today (technically this evening) was OPI you don't know jacques from the france collection. when i first saw this shade in the bottle and even on the plastic nail example at trade secret i was like, eww who would ever wear that?! but then, as i am an avid beauty blog reader, i saw many swatches of the color on multiple ladies' fingers and fell head over heels in lemming lust. i got it at a taylor maid beauty supply for about $3 cheaper than at the mall so how could i resist? it is a lovely creamy dark grey/taupe with kind of a mud appearance. i love it! two coats over double duty base, out the door top and drip dry.
my toes are painted with the N.Y.C. color camoflauge from Target although i think you can buy this brand anywhere, like walmart or whatev. i am reluctant to show you my toes at all, even though i think i actually have cute feet compared to most of the modern world but putting them on the internet in close up detail is a different thing altogether. so here is all you get (i'm sure you're devastated), two coats in a beautiful rich green called camoflauge, beauty secrets ridge filler from sally beauty, out the door top coat, opi drip dry oil.

    Ooh, nice! I actually just finished drying my nails :P

    I normally wouldn't go for the grey color either but it looks good!

    I'm thinking of trying dry nail polish appliques, but haven't gotten a chance to swing by a Walgreen's yet. Have you tried those?
