Topless & Barefoot with a Penny for Your Thoughts

**all items purchased by me

I thought today I'd share a "Spring-y" nail combo that I had on just about a year ago...oops.  Another one of those manis that never got posted when it should have.  I keep hoping for actual Spring weather around here, so maybe if I put more lighter/brighter polishes on it will trick me into thinking it's nice outside.  Or at least nicer.

This is 2 coats of Essie Topless & Barefoot over a ridge-filling base coat.  I don't remember if or what top coat was used.
As is my normal practice with Essie polishes, I paint medium-thick coats rather than the typical thin coats I use for other brands.  I think that it works better for me that way because of the skinnier brush.  The skinnier brush plus thinner coats, for me, always look streakier with Essie.  I believe that this polish is still available.  It's a nice simple nude creme polish.

Then I added a coat of Wet 'n Wild FastDry in Penny for Your Thoughts.
Wet 'n Wild Penny for Your Thoughts is a pretty sheer orange jelly loaded with holo hex glitters, metallic orange and holo tiny bar glitters and some shimmer sprinkled throughout.  Overall, a very cohesive look. Based on my pictures, this didn't dry with the shiniest of finishes but top coat would easily remedy that.  This polish came out in the Hot Rocks collection that came out last year in April.
I believe that a substitute would be Orly Right Amount of Evil from the Flash Glam FX line, if you can still find that.  As of right now, it is still listed on Orly's site.

I wonder if Wet 'n Wild is going to release another FastDry collection soon like they have for the last couple years?

Are you getting any Spring weather where you live?  Are you ready to bust out the Spring colors for polish, makeup and clothes?
