Manicures #8 and #9

25 Apr

I wish I could say that these manicures were excellent, but they weren’t. I love the colors, but they didn’t work for me. I’ll explain after each picture.

First, OPI Jade is the New Black:

I love this color! Application was a bit streaky, however the 2nd coat did even out the nail polish. What I didn’t like? Well, it’s my fault, with washing dishes and doing chores, I chipped my nails pretty easily. It was okay though because I was going to do my Easter manicure the next day. I will still give JITNB a try once more at a later date.

Here is my Easter manicure with my amateur dots:

I used OPI Rumple’s Wiggin’ for the base color, Depend No. 210 and Color Club Revealed for the dots. It looks okay, right? Well it was a nightmare. The OPI took 3 coats just to make it even and it ended up being thick. The dots were easy to make using a dotting tool. Then they started to lift because of all the layers. UGH! I’m going to see if next time I can use 2 coats. I don’t like using three coats!

My dilemma today is if I should participate in the Zoya exchange. I do have polish to send over but I can’t decide! I don’t know if I should go ahead and get all this nail polish. I was able to find some dupes in Zoya for other colors I like, but I’m still not ready to pull the trigger. I have only 2 days left! Ahh, what to do!?
