22. Animal Themed :
I felt like something real funky today so I grabbed my Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Lickety-Split Lime. This polish has a retro feel- it kinda reminds me of the ugly wallpaper that was in my kitchen when I was a child! I added some dots in Zoya Jacqueline (cream), AVON Inspire (yellow), and AVON Orange Creamsicle (orange). Then I dotted some lime green over top of those dots for fun. I like the effect of the double-dots. My nails look like they’re right out of the 70’s! I feel ready to attend a Tupperware party! lol
I used some Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Fast Dry Topcoat when I was done and I’m regretting it. I haven’t used that quick-dry topper in a few months so I couldn’t really remember if it was any good or not. UGH! It ended up being goopy and bubbly. Maybe I should add some Seche Restore because this topcoat is currently not one of my faves! It also didn’t dry that fast because half an hour later I got a big smoosh on one of my nails. Boo!
I may not post nail art for a couple days since I will be doing a review of my new NCLA Nail Wraps that were sent to me by Nail Polish Canada! Yay! I’ve never tried wraps before and I want to do an honest review where I show pics of the wraps after a few days wear. Yippee! I want to apply them right now but I really should get to work. It’s monday afterall 😦
Til next time!
