I wanted a very simple manicure today, something pale and pretty and a little girlish.
The other day I bought a bunch of Essence Colour & Go polishes. They’re pretty nice, for as cheap as they are. The one I’m wearing here is Gold Rush (32). It’s a rather lovely pale champagne-like gold frost. The accent nail is Sakura, from Glitrix, an Etsy polish seller. I saw this one on Chalkboard Nails first, loved it, and ordered it immediately. I’m not usually bent on the indie style of glitter, especially bar glitter, but I thought this one was lovely.
Obviously I couldn’t resist the matte. Next week perhaps I’ll challenge myself to do at least three days in a row of shiny finishes. It may be holos all week, though. ;}
My bottle of Sakura seems to be a bit more pink than the one Chalkboard Nails has. I’m fine with that. This is two coats of Gold Rush on each nail, with one coat of Sakura over the index.
One of the things about Glitrix that sold me is the ridiculously cute bottles. They’re tiny for the cost ($6), but shipping is free, and they’re remarkably opaque. They also have a very fierce odor. Fades quickly, but it’s quite intense during application. See? LOOK AT THE CUTE.
That is one adorable bottle.
Sakura is from Glitrix Frankenpolish on Etsy. I bought the Essence at Ulta, where they are a whopping .99 each (or less). I’m not going to mention Essie Matte About You in my list of where I bought things after this post. You know I got it from Ulta, and I use it all the time. Repetition of verbiage bores me after a point, so. (Obviously, repetition of finishes bothers me not at all.)
This is also the last post with a disclaimer — I’ve got one on its own page up at the top, and I think y’all know I’m not doing this for the benefits.
