10: Showtime

This past week, I broke out one of my favorite polishes. It's a 10 Professional Nail Lacquer called Showtime.

This is 2 coats over base, and topped with Seche Vite. Showtime is a taupe-y greige creme that, in bright light, can come across as slightly purple (like in my picture). I don't usually gravitate towards cremes, but this one is just gorgeous.

That's all for now. Wishing everyone a happy holiday!!!

NOTW: Sally Hansen Angel Wings

This week, for once, I actually wanted to wear something a bit more subtle. I decided to try out Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Angel Wings.

This is 3 thin coats over base, and topped with Seche Vite. This polish is a gorgeous pearl shimmer that flashes pink in the light (unfortunately I couldn't capture it on my camera). This was fairly sheer. After 3 coats the nail line was still very visible but, strangely, I was okay with that.

Well, that's it for now. Til next time!

NOTW: OPI Divine Swine

I am, quite possibly, the worst blogger. Sorry that I haven't posted in so long, but real life kindof took over. Hopefully I'll be back to my weekly posts now. Anyhoo, here's my mani this week.

Yesterday was the big cross-town rivalry basketball game between the college I went to, and the evil ones. I decided to make my nails as purple and bling-y as possible to distract during foul shooting (not sure of it helped, but oh well).

This is 3 very thick coats of OPI Divine Swine topped with Seche Vite. Divine Swine is fine purple glitter and larger silver hex glitter in a clear base. It is verrrrry sheer. I ended up having to glop it on so that I'd be ready for the game. I absolutely LOVE the way this looks, but I am soooo dreading taking it off :/

Until next time, loves!
