I hope you’re not too sick of my reviews I’ve been posting lately… the truth is, deadlines make things happen, if I don’t have a deadline, months can go by without me finding the time to post anything. And it’s not that I don’t want to, it’s the fact that it does take that much time. I used to have it as a student, I can imagine myself being a student again (not in the exam era though) and spending hours a day doing manicures, make up and blogging, gosh that would be really nice =) However I graduated and made my everyday full of obligations, I could lay on the couch every day after work but apparently I don’t really want to (ohhh, but the thought sounds soooo promising! =P). My manicures take the toll as well – I change them once a week and lose sleep (literally) because of it. Today’s manicure is no exception – I had no time to do the whole nail routine, so I just twisted up the one I had been wearing for 6 days…
So today I am showing you a polish that I bought myself, I finally found this one on the shelf of Mueller – ever since it was released, it kept being sold out in every store I went to… now it’s mine, Essence Sparkle Sand Effect in Hey, Nude! =) I’ve read it in reviews that it is sheer, so I thought this would be perfect to layer over my last manicure I showed you in my previous post – Catrice Mona Lisa is staring back. I left the accented nails with nail stickers untouched and here’s the result:
I wore this for 3 more days before taking it off. I was amazed at how well it stayed on my nails for the whole time! I had 1 layer of base polish Essie Nourish me, another layer of Essie Fill the gap (I don’t know exactly why I keep using the latter, I thought it was a ridge filler, it is and it isn’t, still figuring it out – but it bubbles like crazy, thankfully on the “inside” of the surface), then it was 3 layers of Catrice Mona Lisa is staring back, a layer of top coat Essie Good to go, and then another layer of Essence Hey, Nude! – 7 layers!!
I like this manicure a lot =) What do you think? =)
