And Another Nail Post: My Quick Attempt at Nail Art


I used: China Glaze "Refresh-Mint" (not as dark as it looks in the photo) and Sinful Colors Nail Art "Anxious Azure"

Whoops, sorry for the nail overload posts lately.  I usually only do them once a week or so.  The stupid Seche Vite top coat made yesterday's nails chip in less than half a day of wear and that bothered me so I went and got a new bottle of Poshe (my favorite) since I ran out, and redid everything.

I have Konad stuff but it's kind of time consuming so I decided to try out these little Sinful Colors Neon Nail Art polishes.  They are really cool and only $2 each at Walgreens.  The blue is a duo chrome which is pretty, but aside from that + a dark green, the others are creamy neons.  Worth the money, since I don't do nail art that often. It was my first time playing around with nail art polishes, and they are really fun!

Since we are on the topic of makeup, I just want to share with you my favorite versatile eye shadow as of late - MAC "Hey" repromoted in the Prep For Colour collection.  I have been using this everyday for the past month.  It's limited edition but I think some MAC stores still have it and if yours doesn't, they also have it online until it sells out (free ship til 6/6/10!).

When I wear it, I don't even look like I have eye shadow on, I just look more awake!  I'm into neutral eyes most of the time so this is really good stuff.  It's slightly shimmery - not frosty - and works great with my skin tone.
