I have some pictures of manis that I have taken before "the file down" that I may post. So you may see a variation in nail length but I have a hard time liking my nails this short! There are many bloggers that have shorter nails, aka "nubs" or "nubbins" and those bloggers rock the heck out of them. I just feel like it doesn't suit my hand. I don't every have my nails too long to begin with this length is definitely shorter than I like.
For this Frugal Friday, I have a Maybelline Color Show polish. The one is from the Sequins collection. I no longer have my receipt but these are about $3 at Walmart. I am not positive if they are charging more for the glitters...hopefully not! This particular collection is limited edition so if you like what you see, don't hesitate too long. I picked up two from this collection and the one I picked for today is called Cocktail Dress. It has a black base with a mixture of black glitter and slightly larger red glitter. This polish is a bit of a problem child for me. I started off using a nail wheel and the formula was just...dry? Not really sure how to describe it but it just didn't flow well on the nail. I then added some thinner and it was more workable then. For the photos below, I used three coats, then a coat of Gelous, then a coat of SV. I don't like when a glitter is really rough on the nail and this combination usually solves that problem.
Okay...shall we get on to the pictures?!!
Have a good weekend!
