I'm back from a brief break. My work week was very long and hectic. I have had much going on! I got to see my cousin's brand new baby and my uncle whom I have not seen since 1985! It was amazing. The baby is so gorgeous and sweet!
Sadly, I had a little setback on Sunday. I am hypoglycemic and my blood sugar dropped really low that day and I almost passed out at work. It was really bad and very upsetting because I usually have my blood sugar under control. I've been having some problems maintaining so now I have to reevaluate my diet. Boo.
The good thing about it happening at work is learning just how awesome my friends there are.
That said, let's move on to what's really important: new nail nail polish!
First up is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lickety Split Lime!
Two coats, no base or top, sunlight from my window
(It was raining but still sunny so I decided not to go outside for this.)
Let's get the brush issue out of the way. They are weird. Like big mops but flat and wide. I actually like the brush but I do have a complaint. It holds on to a little too much polish. That's what makes application tricky.
It's also what makes these a one coat polish. You could glop it on one stroke, clean and be done with it. But that's not very pretty, is it?
On to the color: It's a yellow leaning green that does not evoke lime as much as it does avocado. Or avocado with lime. I was a little disappointed because it's not as bright and vibrant as I would like. I wore this as a full mani and got a lot of compliments but I thought it looked like I had been eating guacamole with my hands.
This will definitely go into the pile of Konad only because it stamps beautifully. (And looks punchier in small doses stamped over another color.) Win some, lose some.
Next up is is Snappy Sorbet!
Both are two coats, no base or top in sunlight from the window.
This is a sweet peachy, coral that really shines in full sun or bright light. It has the tiniest amount of shimmer in bottle but none on the nail. I adore the shade but again, I am having no luck with shades like this. It was streaky, patchy and needs at least three coats to even everything out. What I did for my picture was apply two thick coats. I spite of this being a quick dry polish, thick coats take a long time to dry. So thin coats are best with careful application for this little number. Another bit of good news with this is it too Konads brilliantly. So if you hate the brush and can't bear to paint it on your nails, use it for nail art!
That's it for me now. I'm off to make some breakfast, do chores and get a workout in before I meet up with Matt. I'm making him take me to the mall so I can stalk some new nail polish. There may be some goodies for an upcoming giveaway as a result of my hunting!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope the day treats you well!
