So school’s back, and I confess that I probably put way too much thought into my nails for the first day of school (I’m not the only one, right?). By which I mean I went through every shade in our extensive collection, eliminating the ones that were too bright, too autumnal, too wintery, and so on. Unsurprisingly, I went for a safer neutral shade. Well, that was the plan…
Long story short, genius me threw on 3 coats of L’Oreal‘s How Romantic (#240) and promptly went to sleep less than an hour later. Needless to say, when I woke up the next morning I had streaky, dented, fabric-imprinted nails. Solution? Glitter. Not only does it look like magic, but it works like magic too 😉
I slapped on a coat of Cake Beauty’s Coco + Lulu’s Champagne (#5259) over top of my imprinted mess, and off to class I went!
The finished product?
(Sorry for the poor quality. Phone pictures. Also, I took these over a week after I painted my nails. Still going strong with minimal chipping!)
Oddly enough, one of the first things my friend said to me: “Your nails look like a bottle of champagne.”
’til next time,
