I've been working really hard at being more "neat" as I polish my nails. I'm trying really hard to have less on my fingers. The hardest part has been not "flooding the cuticle." In nail polish circles, it's best if you don't get polish all the way to the base of the nail, but instead leave just a little bit of a gap. This is difficult! But I'm getting MUCH better, as you can see below...
These were taking in all kinds of different light and I LOVE how SPARKLY it is! Have I mentioned I LOVE THIS COLOR??
First, here are some of my favorite, non-conventional photos.
and some photos with the Zoya Charla bottle
Different angles and different lighting make all the difference!
For those who are curious, here's a layer list:
1) Sally Hansen Double Duty base coat, wrapped tips
2) 3 thin coats of Zoya Charla, with wrapped tips on first and last
3) Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat, wrapped tips
Then I cleaned it up with a small brush in acetone where I got a little too close to the skin.
Have I mentioned I love this polish? My new, all-time fave! I love this Zoya, my very first, and I cannot wait to try out Ginessa, Pippa, and Phoebe! You can see them in the bottles here.
