Well now that there's on dress code for me to abide by, I've gotten back into the groove of my weekly manicure ritual. It's a bit sloppy, but everybody's going to start from a different point, right? I wanted to get gels, but I realized that would be a bad idea since I've nothing in my current cosmetic arsenal that could remove them once I get tired of them. Anyway, Let's talk shop:
MAYBELLINE EXPRESSWEAR NAIL LACQUER IN MAUVE
CONFETTI NAIL LACQUER IN HINT OF PINK
NEW YORK COLOR MATTIFYING TOP COAT
That's it, I didn't use base coat and I usually don't do so. It's a bad habit of mine, but I also don't have any right now so there are reasons (excuses) for my unrefined mannerisms. I only like the Orly base coat so I refuse to use anything else until I can get my hands on it (but that still won't stop me from painting my nails on a weekly basis). I think I've gotten better at removing my cuticles, but I'm very dehydrated so my hands look very dry here, sorry!
Now to talk about my product crush: Confetti. They nail lacquers are very thick, but durable. I usually don't use top coat with their lacquers because I don't find that there is a need for it, but they're also a bit difficult to take off. I use pure acetone nail varnish remover and it still takes some tough love to wear this stuff down. I like it as a cheap go-to in between getting my nails done or if I just want a clear coat for the week! Still, my all time favorite is Orly for my base and finishing coat needs, but confetti comes in at a close second! These varnishes can be found at CVS (whom I've heard is having a clearance sale right now; everywhere but Vegas apparently).
That's it for this weeks NOTW, stop in next week for some fierce Fall color!
