My Roommate's NOTD

My roommate is also big into painting her nails...I may have been the one to get her addicted. Currently, she in wearing one of the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dries in Pink Blink.

The first picture is more true to life. Pink Blink is a gorgeous bubblegum pink creme that would be perfect for spring. However, it did take here four coats of color to get it opaque.

Subdued Bling.

This is my current NOTD.

Natural lighting:

In-door lighting:

For this I used:
1 coat of Seche Clear as my base coat
2 coats of Color Club Sultry
1 coat of China Glaze Crackle Glaze Crushed Candy
2 coats of Seche Vite
1 coat of Barielle Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender

I am kinda in love with this, but I do wish Crushed Candy was a tiny bit brighter. I can't wait to see it in the sun tomorrow while walking to class. Hopefully, I won't walk into anything while staring at them. ;)

A Couple of Old NOTD (Nail of the Day(s))

This was my first Fauxnaud. I think it came out fairly well.

For this I used three of the Milani 3D Holographic colors: Digital, Cyberspace, and Hi-Res. I think each of the strips were about two each. I also used BM plate 07 and Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme for the stamping. 

The next NOTD was the first time I tried the Sally Hansen Salon Effects. 

I chose the pattern Girl Flower and absolutely loved it! The whole process only took me about 30 minutes. That includes cleaning, filing, and putting them on. I found it to be really easy to be honest and that's coming from an awkward lefty! I would suggest that your hands be warm when applying them though because they will adhere better that way. 

After wearing these for about a week I finally took them off. I do plan on wearing them again (I have the patterns Kitty, Kitty and Check it Out waiting). I highly recommend these. They may take some finagling to put on, but the end product is worth it.

Let me know what you think! Oh, and I know my pictures aren't that great but I am trying to get better at taking pictures of my nails using my cameras. These were taken with my phone camera which is why they are kind of blurry/grainy.
