Oh I cannot tell you how much I have been longing for this week!!! Last week of work in 2012!!! And the week of our annual End of the Year Party from work. And the unexpected joy of a huge office move.
Last weekend was super busy and left me with no time for a careful mani. I had to take a dose of my own advice and head for one of my busy body manis: Nubar Forest. It just appeared last week, but for the sake of accuracy (after all this WAS one of my NOTDs this week) just a small photo.
I saved Picture Polish Monroe reborn for our End of the Year Party.
My jaw literally dropped when I had this on my nails. The picture shows three coats of Picture Polish Monroe reborn over Essence XXL Nail Thickener and I finished off with one coat of Poshe Top Coat.
And THEN I received incredible nailmail from wonderful Radha from The Polish Owl. Oh Radha, you spoil me rotten, thanks love for all the awesomeness you sent my way. And it sent me into a mild form of agony over which one to use first. I ended up painting one color per nail, but then that was not really an option for a NOTD ;-). Among the treasures was Hare Polish Ocean of Alloys from their Finder's Keepers Fall 2012 Collection, look at this beauty:
I applied one coat of Hare Polish Oceans of Alloys over Essence I Love Bad Boys and finished off with one coat of Poshe Top Coat.
Lovely Liesl from Liesl loves pretty things put up a post of Zoya Song - honestly I nearly died a little bit. I immediately had to reach out to her and ask if she minds me referring to her as my inspiration - here comes Zoya Song from Zoya's Diva Collection and thank you Liesl xxx for inspiring me:
These are two coats of Zoya Song over China Glaze Ridge Filler and Poshe Top Coat.
I finished the week with Cult Nails Charlatan from their Deceptive Collection over A England Camelot (I stopped buying black polish after I got this one - honestly!!!). I had not tried Charlatan over black yet and this combo sat on top of my to do list. OMG it is incredibly multichrome shifting from purple to turquoise.
I started with A England The Knight Base Coat, two coats of A England Camelot and one coat of Cult Nails Charlatan.
My usual Sunday question to you my dear readers: what was on your pretty nails this week?
