So in celebration of finally being done with classes for the summer, I used one of my favorite polishes to do my nails FOR THE FIRST TIME IN WEEKS. It was a ridiculously long time without polish. And it felt weird. Sidenote, the nail strengthener review? Kindof bust. I used it for a week, saw no improvement, and moved on. I probably should have given it more time, but I was short on time and patience.
New York Color Canal Street. This is a dark burgundy with a deep red microglitter (shimmer?). It almost has a purple undertone to it, but not enough to make it readily apparent, and it looks more brown in dim lighting. Get this baby in the sun though, and it just glows. It's got that lit-from-within thing happening, and it is super gorgeous. I think dark colors look extremely chic on short nails, so this makes me feel pretty fancy.
I came home the very proud owner of a really pretty coral/pink glittery polish from Jesse's Girl, a dark teal and an olive polish from CQ, and two Wet 'n Wild's, a light pink which I'm hoping isn't sheer, and another dark ruby/burgundy color. I think I'm on a pink kick right now, which is super weird because I HATE pinks on me. They always seem boring, but both the WnW and the J'sG were calling out to me "Wini, BUY ME! I'm pretty! And you've never even heard of my brand! So BUY me!"
Yes. My bottles of polish are sentient. It's a problem.
