I was obviously MIA last week with my nail color. I played it safe anyway...used a pale, shimmer-y pink from my Julep Mystery box. Nothing fancy. But, as usual, perfect for working:
This week, however, I dove into that Mystery Box to the color that I fell in love with as soon as I opened that box - Marisa (which also happens to be the name of one of my BFFs)
LOVE THIS COLOR!!!
Unfortunately, I smudged my left thumb nail...despite waiting almost 20 minutes after applying the top coat (this is why I hate bottom, color, top coats - too long to dry). And before you ask, I didn't put them all on in a 30-minute window. I did my base coat (aka strengthener) and waited a half hour or so. Then my color. This one I waited at least an hour before doing anything. Then the top coat. And I waited about 20-30 minutes before going to bed. That's all I did...go to bed. Ugh!! Oh well...I've kept it on since Tuesday, smudge and all. Of course my tips are chipped now (serious house cleaning went on this week before heading out of town). So I need to do my nails again, but I have no motivation to do so. They will remain blue chipped through the weekend.
Besides...it's my Birthday weekend. I can do what I want!!
So what are you doing with your nails this weekend? Come on over to Tara & Vicki and share with the rest of us nail polish obsessed folks!
