So we’ve already discussed my errr passion for nail polish. Well, today I was looking for a new manicure combo, and I think I may have discovered a new favorite. As usual, I was having some kind of a time figuring out exactly what colors I wanted to use. I had an unfortunate break on my index finger so I had to cut all my nails down. I needed something kind of fall appropriate (even though I pretty much wear what I want, when I want), and something that would look good on short nails. Of course I thought about leaving my inner magpie behind and not doing a glitter accent. But wouldn’t you know, that sneaky little glitter bug caught up with me?
Anyway I decided to go with On A Trip, a cool sort of deep periwinkle from the Wet N Wild Megalast line. I have to say I wasn’t sure these polishes would live up to the hype, but I’ve worn it before and it really does stay like a champ. It even rivals my beloved Essie polishes in quality, for only a quarter of the price! For my accent nail I decided on my new Essie luxe effects polish in A Stroke Of Brilliance. It’s in the same family of periwinkle, but with a slighter cooler undertone. For added brilliance, I topped it all off with Seche Vite top coat. It’s pricey, but you can’t beat the high shine finish and the extremely fast dry time. With a toddler running around the house the dry time is key.
And here are the results:
So what do you think? Is this a winning combination? What colors are you into this season? Do you pay attention to seasons/trends or just do what you like?
