New manicure

So after my last French manicure in purples, which lasted about a week with only a couple of touch ups, it was time for something new.  I decided to stick with the Essie brand and wear a color that I had bought and wanted to wear but the timing was off for this type of color--as in, my grandmother and other relatives only like classic pinks, reds and maybe purples.

This is a basic look this time.  Here is what I did:

  • 1 coat of Pro FX Fiberized Ridge Filler base coat
  • 2 coats of Essie's "Smooth Sailing" # 861 from the 2011  Braziliant collection
  • 1 coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

I also included a couple of pictures of what I've been wearing on my toes for the last 3 weeks or so.

This is 2 coats of Hard Candy's nail polish in Fabuluxe #323.  I don't have a good picture of it, but it is a glitter polish that goes on fairly opaque with one coat, which is impressive for a glitter polish.  My pictures don't do it nearly enough justice.  It also dries fairly smoothly, unlike some other glitter polishes that I have tried.
