Sometimes I forget to wear polish. It sounds ludicrous but it's true. When there is good weather I spend the majority of my weekend days swatching polishes I have gotten for review, sometimes upwards of 40 polishes go on and off my nails in the course of a few hours. It gets tiresome to be honest and sometimes I don't have the energy to put on a full manicure at the end of the day. Then during the week, I blog and edit photos most evenings so that leaves manicures to the last priority. As a result, I have naked nails more often than I care to admit.
I've decided that this is not cool and pretty ridiculous considering the obscene amount of nail polish that I have. I am really trying to be better at actually wearing my nail polish instead of just "trying it on" for swatching. These "in real life" posts are to show off the polishes I've actually worn recently, photographed for evidence or it didn't count haha. So the polishes will be random choices and maybe even ones I've shown before, hope you don't mind.
First is FingerPaints One In A Melon from their spring collection from this year called Picnic In the Park. I picked this up in a Sally Beauty store, where they are exclusively sold, when I was out of town a while back. I am so sad I don't have one near me, it's really tragic. This is a fabulous watermelon pinky red jelly crème. It's got a great opaque formula, this is two shiny coats.
This is Essie Stones N Roses, one of the four shades in this year's Resort collection. It's a peachy muted pink crème. I have a lot of pinks, it's probably the shade I have the most of, but this one just kept kung fu'ing into my mind and I had to have it. I'm so glad I bought it because it's really great. I put a pic of it on my instagram and it's gotten the most likes of any photo I've ever posted haha. This was a tad streaky so I needed three coats to even it out.
And last for this post is OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender from the Hong Kong collection that came out in 2010. I didn't pick this up until very recently though, I saw my friend Zenorah talk about it in one of her YouTube videos the other day and I decided to go put it on, but I realized I didn't have it! Blasphemy! I bought it on Amazon and put it on as soon as I got it in the mail. I like that this lavender is slightly pink toned, it makes it more unique in my collection. Two easy, thin but opaque coats and I'm in love!
Thanks for joining me today! Let me know what you think about these three pretties :)
