Guys, I can't believe how busy I feel like I've gotton at work lately! I feel like I went from 0 to 60 in no time flat and now I'm running to catch up with myself! Being busy is a good thing, not complaining, but it's a huge departure from what I did for three months after residency. On the plus side, I do love the places I'm working at and more particularly the people I'm working with. That cannot be overstated.
Anyway, I did take some down time I had over the last couple of weekends to experiment with various looks on my nails. I'll try to show you my current NOTD's but in between, I'm excited to show you various other looks I tried. After that introduction, let me tell you that this was a manicure I ended up wearing for a few days and just took off today.
The green is Orly Meet Me Under The Mistletoe. I know this is from an older release but it is just gorgeous. I believe it is a core color. Look at that bottle shot! On the nail, it doesn't have quite all those colors but it does have a wicked sparkle. I should get different lights to show the full shimmer effect. I got it opaque and even in three coats due to the jelly base. For the accent nail, I went with China Glaze Riveter Rouge from the Vixen collection. That is the only collection I have all of the polishes for. Also, my first China Glazes. It was opaque in two coats. It's a lovely red with microfine particles of gold. You can see that in the bottle. So gorgeous! I made the gold dots with a dotting tool and NOPI Not a Gold Bigger. It seems to be my go to gold polish for the month.
And now for a lot of pictures....
