Funky French

March 13:

Happy Birthday to my sister :) She is currently sporting Orly's "Close Your Eyes" on her nails and they look great!

This manicure is a fun funky french, which I don't do very often but I find quite fun to do. I wore Nfu-Oh 65 a few weeks back and it was beautiful, however, it was so cold and cloudy that I couldn't actually see the full on holo. Luckily with this manicure the sun was out and even inside the holo was a lot brighter and I fell in love with this manicure.

The base color was three coats of Ulta's "Mint Condition". This was something that I got free with my Ulta points and I picked it up hoping it would be a close dupe for Essie's "Turquoise and Caicos." On the dupe front it is pretty close, MC is a bit darker that TaC but MC is a two-three coater versus TaC which is a four-five coater.

I free handed the tips with the Nfu after applying top coat to the MC. Since this was such a bright and fun manicure I ended up keeping it on for a whole week! That is the first time since...I can't even remember when. Halfway through the week I got antsy for a new manicure but with not much time I threw on some OPI Black Shatter.

This past week has been a good nail polish haul week so I may have some of that up here soon! And my spring break starts this week so I am hoping to get some more posts up and play around with the site.

Since I am getting close to 50 followers I am going to start planning my first giveaway! I am so excited about this, expect to hear more about this soon :)

Until next time,
Happy painting!
