Weekly Nail - The Dainty Squid

Weekly Nail

Sunday, March 25, 2012

This is what's on my nails when I don't feel like spending tons of time on my nails or when I'm sick of messing up my nails six times in a row and just want to get something on them before I give up - just one solid color with a coat of glitter over it. (The latter of the two reasons was the case this time, in case you're curious!) 
Supplies used:
Revlon Top Speed in Emerald
Ulta Pinata-Yada-Yada

Pinata-Yada-Yada is my all time favorite glitter. It is perfect. I love how it applies and how the glitter distributes fairly evenly. That kind of sounds like a random thing to mention but if you've tried a fair share of glitter polishes than you've probably noticed how some cheaper ones (and expensive ones too!) apply really crappily, with huge globs of glitter in one area and nothing in another. I actually even bought another version of this glitter from another brand (it looks almost identical in the bottle) but it didn't even begin to live up to this stuff.

Also, I really love this Revlon top speed! It's the only one I have from the brand but it makes me want to buy every other color despite the fact I probably have the same shade in another brand. It applies so nicely. Plus you can't beat a nail polish that dries really quickly!

Hope you're having a great Sunday!
xoxo

  5. I hate messing up my nails and having to redo them! I did that last night so off with it this morning and back to the drawing board. Doing your own intricate designs is tough! I've been looking for a good glitter so I'll give this one a try, I really like it.

  7. kaylah, when i saw "weekly nail" in the title, my heart did a happy leap. yes, the equal glitter distribution is a big deal. i get frustrated when i mess my nails up too. i'm wondering how long the revlon lasts. i know you change your nails frequently, so that's not a factor for you, but i only like to do mine once a week. ;)

  10. i love that color green! i've been looking for a good glitter polish, but i just never seem to find one with the right size glitter...which also sounds like sort of a silly thing, but sometimes the glitter is just too big!

    1. Hah! I have the complete opposite problem! I feel like they're all too small! (that could be from either one of two reasons though. 1. I like ridiculous big glitter. 2. I already have a lot of small glitter polishes and want something different)

  11. I love this combo! Although I don't paint my nails nearly as often as I'd like, I really do love glitter polish. My favorites at the moment are the new Essie glitter polishes. They've gone on very evenly for me and I LOVE the colors :)

  12. Revlon has the best assortment of speed-drying nail polish. My favorite one is 660 Grape, which is a dark royal purple. Nothing beats this brand when it comes to polishing nails each and every day!

  13. Your nails look manicured! How did you manage that perfection? I have been painting my nails more often and I always seem to have at least one blotch on my skin :( What's your secret?

  21. I love that green! I think I've only bought one glitter polish before, from Hot Topic, and I didn't want to use it much because it's so hard to remove.

    1. No, I haven't. I love her nail stickers but never saw a point in buying any of the ones I could do myself (like the glitter or solid colors)

  29. i recently got my first glitter polish by essie and it goes on pretty evenly. i'm just glad i stopped biting my nails long enough to get to paint them! do you have a recommendation for a really good top coat? i usually get sheet marks in my nails the next day hours after they have dried.

  30. I love nail polish that dries quickly. I tend to apply mine perfectly, then mess it up while waiting for it to dry. Love the combo :) xx

  31. I'm the same way when I do my nails - when I'm finally done and have a result I like, I'm loopy from the fumes and want to cry from frustration hahaha
