Welcome to the first official Mani Round Up post. Just in case you missed my introduction post a few days ago, the Mani Round Up post is going to be a weekly post of photos of manicures from the previous week, plus a mini review about the polish or polishes used. The amount of photos each week will vary as it depends on how many times I do my nails! Every week will be a surprise to you AND me, LOL.
Fresh Paint Passion Fruit: my camera does not do justice to how bright, glowly, and cheerful this polish truly is on the nail! I purchased this from 5 Below, I believe it was part of a 3 for $5 deal. For that price, the quality of the formula is quite impressive. It is opaque in two coats.
Orly Prelude to a Kiss: this polish has been featured on my blog about 3,193 times, mostly recently in my Favorites of 2016 post. I love everything about this polish - the formula, the color, the non chippingness, the color, the name, the color...
Sally Hansen Velvet Texture Lush: slightly textured, this cool gray polish has an edginess that I love. If you apply topcoat, the texture disappears for a smoother look. I used three thin coats for what you see here.
Illamasqua Purity: this is another one of my favorite polishes that I pick up quite frequently. The peach color looks a little off on my winter skin, though, so I think this will hibernate until spring, too. Orly Prelude is the more almondy winter friendly cousin to this polish,
New Years Eve Nails featuring Literary Lacquers I Heard The Bells & Zoya Alicia: I know it has been more than a week since NYE, but I wanted to post this anyway, since I haven't yet. I used Out The Door Black Hole for the base, then used striping tape to apply three random pieces to each nail. I chose Zoya Alicia, the silver, and I Heard The Bells by Literary Lacquers for the gold, and carefully filled in a few spots. Ta-da!
