So just go back in time, and pretend I’m posting this on Monday. I was wearing glitter nail polish over the weekend and it took me so long to get it off, I didn’t have time to paint my nails!
If you saw the end of my birthday post, my boyfriend bought me a small set of Essie nail polish as a birthday present. This is one of the colors, Using My Maiden Name. The color reminds me of hydrangeas, which are one of my favorite flowers. There is a hint of pink shimmer too, which adds a nice touch.
The Essie set contains 4 mini sized bottles. I love these mini bottles because it is impossible to use up a full bottle of polish. I have a completely unnecessary amount of nail polish, and yet I can’t stop buying it. With smaller bottles, instead of full sized ones, I run the possibility of actually finishing one!
Like most Essie nail polishes, Using My Maiden name is a bit sheer. I applied 2 coats on most nails, but a few needed a third coat to be completely opaque.
Today is a rainy, bleak day. Having some bright purple nail polish really helps make the weather seem not so dull. Time to get back to some homework!
