Happy Friday everyone! Anyone else glad this week is almost over? I have had a heck of a week at work and am more than ready to just out my feet up and relax. Maybe at the new Cinderella movie, anyone else going to see it? I'm still in my unable to pick a polish funk so this time I had my son pick one out. He opted to raid my mini collection and picked out Curfew by Sally Girl.
Curfew is a berry pink with lighter pink shimmer. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat. It's a bit on the sheer side but built up nicely during application. 3 coats would cover that VNL. I opted to only do 2 since that is the typical number of coats people apply. Plus I know most people tend to skim through blog posts and might not catch if I had applied more to reach full opacity. So going for full transparency about this polish you get 2 coats, VNL and all. Did you catch what I did there... hehehe I'm so clever in my overly tired state, or at least I think I am.
Application was easy. I did have a minor issue with the smaller brush tonight and ended up with more polish along the sides of my nails than I usually do. Which is odd because the smaller brushes typically work better for me. I'm not entirely convinced it was the brushes fault though, it may have been user error. Did I mention I've had a rough week?
I'm sure my daughter actually picked this one out during one of our many shopping trips to Sally's. She seems to think that because the bottles are so small that they must be meant for her. She's so cute about it and they are cheap enough that I usually give in and let her pick out 2 each and every time. What can I say I'm a push over when it comes to her nail polish logic. After all she does make an excellent point.
Sydney was a little disappointed that I didn't let her pick the nail polish this time around. But she recovered quickly and decided that she wanted to paint her nails for this post too, but only if she could use a polish she picked out. 6 years old and already a little Diva. Lord help me when the teenage years hit.
Sydney decided to stick with the pink theme and use one of her own polishes and she painted her nails all by herself. It actually looked much better before she did her "clean up". She has a tendency to remove the polish from the nail and leave it on her skin. This is her non dominant hand and she's making a lot of progress when it comes to painting it, now we need to get her to stop biting her nails. She's taking after her mamma when it comes to the nail polish obsession and I couldn't be prouder. Who knows, maybe when she's a little older she'll have a blog of her own.
I know this was a little bit of a scattered post and if you've stuck with me this far I'm impressed. I'm going to take the weekend to rest up and hopefully things will calm down next week. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
