I thought I'd share an almost nail-of-the-day. Almost as in it just came off due to some very premature chipping. I've got issues with one nail, which is causing the polish to start chipping off the end within a few hours, but it is growing out. Then another nail started chipping while I was working in the kitchen so...it all came off. This way I can let my nails soak in a good amount of cuticle oil/cream which they badly need. Then tomorrow before doing my nails, I'll put on a new layer of Orly nail repair powder on my sad nail so that my mani will last longer.
Yesterday I finally posted my Sally's Beauty Supply 50% off clearance polishes very mini haul on Instagram from a couple weekends ago. It was also actually summer weather yesterday so I wanted something nice and bright and one of those polishes fit the bill just right.
I did 2 coats of China Glaze If In Doubt, Surf It Out over all but my index fingers. Then I did 2 coats of Fresh Paint Honeydew on my index fingers and free-handed on half chevrons on the rest of my nails to tie the colors together better (could have been done with tape).
~Honeydew is pretty accurate but If In Doubt, Surf It Out photographed too dark~
Fresh Paint Honeydew is a pastel-neon yellow-green creme polish. It is almost a one-coater (obviously not over the China Glaze), but I did 2 just to make sure everything was nice and even. This actually reminds me of another color from the China Glaze Off Shore collection - "Be More Pacific," which is why I chose it to be the accent color.
Are you hanging on to summer bright colors? Or are you starting to transition your manicures to the more subdued Fall colors? Do you always do the same accent nail (if you do them) or do you change them up?
