NCLA As If
Fresh Paint Blackberry Smoothie
Orly Charged Up
L'oreal After Hours
Seche Vite as a top coat
Nail stickers (blogged about here // bought from here)
NCLA As If is the latest addition to my ever growing collection of nail polish. I actually got it in my very first Pop Sugar Must Have box (which I immediately cancelled after I opened it. The nail polish was literally the only thing I didn't throw away or donate to the thrift store. What a waste of money! Now I'm back on the hunt for a new subscription box to join) the same day I bought a similar color, Sation's Lollipop! Goes The Princess*, at TJ Maxx. Guess this shade and I were meant to be!
Using different shades of the same color is one of my all time favorite things to do, if you couldn't already tell, and this one really knocks it out of the ball park. This is one of my favorite manicures in a while. It's so pretty! Sadly, it didn't last long. Chlorine makes my nail polish chip like no other and it's certainly been a week for swimming!
*Nail polish names are often really strange but I think that one might take the cake for the dumbest name ever! I can't think of any others that compare. Well unless you're counting the time I thought Essie's "Meet Me At Sunset" was actually called "Meet Meat Sunset". Haha!
