You know what can make my day so much better? A compliment. More specifically, a compliment on my nails.
It might sound weird, but I really do put a lot of thought into my manicures. Sometimes I know exactly what I want and I can choose a color in less than five minutes; other times I sit in front of my Box of Beauties completely indecisive. It all depends on how I am a feeling. A bright color screams, “Hey! I want to be noticed!!!” A dark color is mysterious and classy. A design shows uniqueness and creativity. The weather also weighs in (that’s part of why I don’t like summer – my dark colors seem out of place).
So far this week, I haven’t gone one day (or even one place) without a compliment on my Essie Shine of the Times Manicure! It is so eye-catching, and everyone is so confused as to how I got the effect! Part of me doesn’t want to tell them it’s just a glitter flake top coat…but I always do. 🙂 It’s almost Sunday! That means time for a new manicure. I cant decide if I want to rock a simple, bright mani or a cute Valentines Day one. I might even throw my Shine of the Times over another color!
Whatever I decide, I’ll try to post a little tutorial and show you guys what I come up with!
