sorry for the lack of updates this week! -__- i've picked up more hours at work...and plus, we're babysitting the pastor's kid this week...so him, my mom, & my younger brother are sleeping in the living room - - so i cant even stay up late to paint my nails. total bummer, really.
anyway, after almost a month of having Orly's Bailamos, i finally got around to trying it out. i also decided to try the Top 2 Bottom base & topcoat that came along with it. i also have a story to go along with this...but first, pictures.
this picture was taken first thing Tuesday morning [after i painted it midnight on Monday]. i also used Broadway's Fashion Diva nail stickers. just to point out, a piece of sticker on my ring finger already chipped off.
i'd also like to point out that that stickers are lifting a bit. i did place the stickers on my nails correctly, made sure they were on...and when i put a coat of topcoat on, they lifted..weird, right? anyway, you cant really see it in the picture, but when i woke up, there were finger smudges on my nails. the bottle didnt say it was supposed to be fast-drying..but it sure was slow to dry!
this is how my nails turned out after an 8 hour day of work on Tuesday. the stickers chipped off & the polish itself was already chipping.
i cant exactly blame the fault of the stickers on the stickers-itself, cause i've used broadway stickers before & they've lasted me up to 4 days. would it be wrong to blame the top 2 bottom base/topcoat? then again, this was my first time using it..so....
anyway, i also didnt like Bailamos on me. ew. so it took it off. i went into Sally's yesterday & bought myself my usual Poshe basecoat & topcoat..and then i picked up 4 more polishes... and then i redid my nails last night..
i used Orly's Rage & China Glaze's Medallion. 3 coats of each polish, but im sure 2 coats of Rage would've been fine.
i took these two pictures a few minutes ago but the sun isnt all the way out today, so i didnt get a good picture of the blingy-ness of the polish.. but i dont like Rage on me either. i dont think it matches my skintone well...but thats just me...
well, this is all i have for today. hopefully i'll be able to do actual nail art soon =X
enjoy your day,
