Mani Round Up - 1/17/17

Good morning!

Tuesday means it's time for the Mani Round Up! Here is what I wore on my nails in the past week, along with a quickie review of the polish itself.

Fresh Paint Passion Fruit: this may look familiar since I featured it last week! However, it counts for this week, too, because I extended the mani and freshened it up using decals from bornprettystore. I love similar toned nail "art" with polish as it looks modern and clean. The polish has a great formula, with only two coats needed. I applied the decals randomly using tweezers and topcoated with HK Girl.

Barry M Turquoise: I picked this polish up last week thanks to OPI, LOL. OPI had a sponsored post on Facebook showcasing it's new gel line and the color they featured was Czech Book, a similarly hued bright blue. I didn't own the OPI version but I grabbed Turquoise, by Barry M, instead. This is a creme polish with a great formula - opaque in two coats.

Wet&Wild A Latte Love: while I do have a latte love for this color, I don't have a latte love for the brush! I posted this on Facebook and heard similar responses from y'all, too. The megalast formula is awesome - practically a one coater - but at least a few of you have similarly thin nail beds, like me, so the big, wiiiiiide brush is just too much. Can you hear us, wet&wild?!

Smitten / Dreamland Lacquer Terra Opal: I believe it was the summer of 2015 that this polish debuted - and what a beauty! The lime green is an unexpected color choice for January in the northeast, so you bet I got a lot of compliments on this one. I used a white base underneath to make the color POP and two coats of Terra Opal.

Girly Bits by Pam Eggnogoholic: this is an oldie but goodie! I have had this polish forever and it still applies like a dream. It's a simple mix of an off-white base and subtle golden glitters, but on the nail it is just SO pretty. I used three coats for this mani, although a white base and two would suffice, also.

Girly Bits by Pam Eggnogoholic: I loved this mani so much that I wanted to extend it's life a little. Bornprettystore decals to the rescue! You know I love these decals, but they peel so quickly that this only lasted for a day before I started peeling the edges myself. I have thrown away the rest of the decals I had that looked like this. Safe to say, my love affair with BPS decals is ovah. Womp, womp.

Well, that's it for this week! What was your favorite look? Tell me in the comments!

xoxo,
Lacey
