My last 2 manicures

Rather than just one manicure, I decided to put pictures of the last 2 that I have done.

Each manicure has one coat of the base I always use, Pro FX, and a top coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.


The above 2 pictures are Borghese in Menta (4 or 5 coats to get opaque).  This is supposed to be a dupe for Chanel's nail polish in Jade.  I do have to say that I liked the lasting power of this color.  I got a good 3 days before any cracks or chips (and then I did the dishes).

 

The above 2 pictures are of my current manicure, which is lasting fairly well (just looks like the polish is shrinking from the tips).  On all of my nails are 2 coats of Sinful Colors in Vacation Time, and on my ring fingers there is a coat of Sinful Colors in Dancing Nails.  I feel like these 2 could be classified as cousins, since they are a very similar color, just with a different finish.  Dancing Nails is a pretty shimmery-foil type of polish while Vacation Time is just a creamy finish.  This is the first time that I have played around with the "accent nail" trend.  With these 2 colors I like it, but with other colors I'm not sure I like (especially if the colors are completely different).
