Nail Files - Week 21


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!

  4. I think I have the pale shimmer. Is that Emma? The blue looks nice on you. I think that julep polishes dry a bit slower than other polishes.
