Mani Round Up - 2/28/2017

Tuesday already!

I enjoy doing my Mani Round Up posts more and more each week. I am forcing myself to do my nails more often, to try colors I haven't grabbed in a while, and to dabble with nail art again, too.

Let's jump right in!

Wet & Wild Tree Hugger: I am entirely ready for spring and Connecticut's weather has been encouraging those feelings. There are even crocus popping up around the yard! I've been reaching for neutrals and spring colors in my clothes and for my nails. Tree Hugger has the perfect Megalast formula - but I hate the brush! It is wide and flat, which I know many people do love, but my nail is not as wide as the brush, which makes cleanup more than necessary. This is two coats and topcoat.

NYC New Your Color Cosmetics Top of the Gold and China Glaze Bring on the Bubbly over Wet&Wild Tree Hugger: I wanted to extend this mani, so I added a reverse waterfall of gold glitter. I wish I was better at this technique, LOL.

Zoya Chantal: this is a color you've seen dozens of time on this blog. The color is flattering, the formula is perfect in two coats, and the staying power is impressive. My go-to, before work, always going to look good is a neutral from Zoya.

China Glaze Sunset Sail: my square nails needed a break - and literally, were breaking, so I was forced to oval them up. For some reason, I wanted a mannequin, peach look for my nails. Sunset Sail was exactly the color I was in the mood for...for a day. This polish is actually fairly thin, requiring three coats for opacity.

Essie Petal Pink: I was still in the mood for faux looking mannequin hands. I had an odd last week, apparently. I did two coats of the sheerest polish in all the land, Essie Petal Pink, over white. Though the photo looks decent, I am unhappy to report that the polish is clumpy, streaky, and looked quite uneven in the light.

Zoya Tina: last but not least, spring Zoya polishes have arrived! Check back Thursday for the Zoya Charming collection review. I can honestly say I love all 6 of them! The formula is creamy and opaque in two coats. Tina is a mid purple shade that is a smidge darker in real life than in the photo. There is something about the color that reminds me of grape jelly and I like it.

Another week down! What was your favorite mani this week?
