Polished: Opalescent Mint and Winter Polka Dot Snow


Surprise surprise~! My current nails, as promised : ) Unfortunately I had a brutal battle with some organic solvents today during organic chemistry lab, so there are some chips. The pictures were taken a few days ago from freshly done nails, so no worries ^_~

I don't like doing my nails the same colour, so I really switched it up with different designs. I like doing bright green on one hand and bright blue on the other, black on one and pink on the other, etc. Life is too short to have matching nails! If you are an uber keen observer, you'll notice that my right hand's nails are much shorter than the left hand. I know, I'm out of my mind. I only clip one hand at a time!? Nah ... the right hand was just so badly chipped, it had to go.

I really need to get a new camera. My birthday is coming up in 2 weeks (My goodness I am getting old ... ) so I may treat myself to a nicer point and shoot. Better than my Kodak Easyshare, which has the worst macro ever D:

Left hand (Meow Meow's pick):
2 coats of Pure Ice in Mint Dream
2 coats of NYC in Scandalous Blue Glitter
no topcoat

Right hand:
2 coats LA Girl Flare in Turquoise
Polka dots: LA Colors Nail Art Decor in White
Topcoat: Sanofi Aventis

Peacock feather earrings from Forever21 featured in this post

NYC Scandalous Blue Glitter is a really super sheer light blue fine-sparkle polish (whew, how many adjectives can I fit in there?). It gave just a hint of sparkle over the Pure Ice Mint Dream and made it more silver-ish instead of opalescent see-through mother-of-pearl.




[Before cleanup: all over the place, I know]



The blue w/ white polka dots were a pain to do xD The brush on the Nail Art Decor is so hard to use and bends by itself, so I really had to practice. Plus, I'm mostly right-handed and I was using my left hand to do the dots, so go figure :D Luckily they turned out okay. I think I was imagining bigger polka dots but these small ones are cute and remind me of winter snow.

Proof that I'm not fooling you guys :D Awesome FOTD, eh? Just kidding - this is right after I woke up the next day with amazing bedhead, I might add, using hands-free Photobooth xD

Have a great one! A new pair of CutesyGirl boots came in, and a huge package of clothes on sale from Forever21 :D You know what that means! ^_~
