Manicure Monday

Martian Manicure

Martian Manicure: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint + Essie in Turquoise & Caicos
I hated these nails. I painted then on Wednesday night, and spent all this time getting them perfect, cutting little bits of tape to make the lines perfectly straight, blah blah blah, and then as soon as I put the top coat on they went all weird! The lighter colour ran all over the place, it was super bizarre. Anyway they looked TERRIBLE so I had to take the polish off and start all over again. The second time I wasn’t nearly as careful so they didn’t look nearly as good, and I was so annoyed that I didn’t even bother putting a top coat on because I was hoping they would all chip off the next day.

Drugstore + Dollar Store

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Peachy Keen + Winwax Pink Iridescent Glitter
I did this on Saturday, and while I don’t HATE it, I think it could use improvement. I only did two coats of the Peachy Keen and it could really use three or four, plus I was too impatient to let the glitter coats dry completely and kept messing them up. Basically I would only do this again if I had an entire day to devote to painting my nails.

I also bought some new polishes this weekend:

Four cheap glitters from the Japanese dollar store. The pink and blue are Winwax, the really silvery glitter is Ever bi Lena (lol) and the less silver glitter doesn’t even have a brand. Quality stuff, obviously.

  1. I agree. I feel like the first look, in theory is a great idea, but it just didn’t work out in reality. The second one, however, I LOVE!

  2. you should check out zoya polish. i LOVE it. so many gorgeous colors! and it lasts quite a while. AND it’s vegan friendly!
