Ok, even though they didn't win, they put up a great fight! Last Friday was go Texans day here in the big H and I had some fun with it.

I tried to let things dry for a bit before applying Sech Vite, but my SV has gotten extremely thick and drags colors. I'm going to be hunting for a better top coat pretty soon. Anyhow, all of the pictures show a bit of wear because I was cooking, chopping and cleaning ALL day! So by the end of it all it started chipping off and my thumb nail tore....ugghhhhh!!!!!
So yes, it's back to a nub for me.
Then I went with a dark color again, because you know how I like to change things up. I started with Quick Brick by Sally Hansen, but it quickly showed some wear along the tips, so I sponged on some This Is It by Sinful Colors. That was pretty enough, but then I remembered I had some plain gold glitter chunks in a clear base and thought it would be perfect. Unfortunately you really have to dig around the bottle to get the chunks to come out. That's what I get for buying a 99 cent polish from a beauty discount store. Still looks pretty though!

I didn't clean the edges this time because 1. I didn't plan on keeping this mani long, 2. my cuticles are so dry! Acetone would only dry them further!
I do wish that I could polish as beautifully as some of the pics I see out there. I thought after all this time I would have learned. Oh well. I guess if I'm still having fun with it that's all that matters! This weekend I will be shopping for clothes for my new job, and then I'll pick the perfect mani to start my week with!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy painting!!!!!!!!!
