Wow, talk about delayed posting. I've gone through a few nail changes since my last post - gotta rush to get back up to date, because I LOVE what's going on with them right now and will have to share! :)
That being said, I had been dying to try gray nail polish, and finally here I was giving it a shot. For this, I not only used gray, but also a matte top coat, so I wonder if my findings would be different if I hadn't used the matte?
Anyway: Essie's Chinchilly polish. Saw it. Had to try it. I must say, I still love the color. I think I'm not crazy about how it looks on me, though. If my skin was a bit lighter, I think I'd like it better. But on me, I feel like it looks kind of like mud or something. It strangely feels like it blends into my skin color and I'm not so sure about that ;) Maybe I'm just so used to having elaborate nails, it just feels weird to have them be just the one color. I think when I use this again, I'm going to try it with a glossy top coat and not the matte and see what I come up with.
Still going strong, however, is this Essie Matte About You Top Coat. Love this stuff. Matte is such an interesting look for nails. I also love watching as it shifts from glossy to matte within a few seconds of painting it on! Shouldn't be as fun to watch as it is, but let's face it - it just is! :)
These also dried reasonably quickly, so I was super-happy about that. I have a tendency to think my nails are dry and just ruin them by accident. Like running my fingers through my hair. Or making a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Or rolling around on the floor. You get the idea.
Until next time!
