MANICURE MONDAY: Barry M Molten Metals "Pink Luxe"


After last weeks painfully traditional manicure I HAD to go sparkly this week. I donned this particular shade as I had to be on a job interview panel today for work so couldn't do its blue-green counterpart!.. 

I love these Molten Metals for a quick manicure. As they're so sparkly they dry very quickly and with a slick of quick dry top coat, they're just about baby-proof in less than 30mins. #winning

I did 2 coats here, it's still almost just about sheer enough to see the nail line, but since my nails are short, I couldn't care less. I used Sally Hansen MegaShine top coat.

Love this, must see if there are other shades still available! Roll on Monday!

MANICURE MONDAY: Essie "Lovie Dovie"



So today I just wanted to go for a creme polish. I have been loving the sparklies lately, but thought I'd break out of my rut and go for something more "conventional". Already wishing I'd put on a duchrome sparkler like one of the Zoyas I've got but that's for next week!

Do you match your toes to your fingers with nail polish? I'm usually too lazy, but I might make it a thing for July... could be fun!

This is 2 coats, but I find this formula just a bit streaky... I did thicker coats, but the thumbs are definitely a bit more streaky than I'd like. I used Sally Hansen MegaShine top coat to get that quick dry gloss!

It's OK. I still wish I'd gone for a sparkler. Let's see how long it lasts before I add some holo glitter gradients to this manicure...
