Winter Wonderland Nails

So the dollar nail polish I bought for my Christmas nails (http://www.collegetips.com/blog/christmas-nails-821) were super cheap and they actually started chipping the day I painted them on, and it progressively got worse everyday until it got so bad, that I just had to erase them. Now, if you know a thing or two about nails, you know that nail polish is actually really bad for them, and too much will make your nails yellow. That is why I removed the polish off my nails with nail polish remover and I let my nails “breathe” for a day, before I coat on some heavy polish.

This next color I decided to do was on account of the winter season. I live in California so we don’t get snow but the weather has been unbearably cold. But since Christmas is over, and red and green nails are now tacky, I decided to go with this beautiful Cashmere Crème color from NYC (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_CZ1HhhanNgc/TNY6ED9QGTI/AAAAAAAAB4A/eP6lKx7zaGA/s1600/NYC-Cashmere-Creme+001.jpg). In that picture the blue looks really dark though so here’s another shot of it which is actually a little bit more accurate: http://cdn.sulitstatic.com/images/2011/0731/205638542_204934909dcb31e6004095a84e8c6ce4d579e85a5a8526e67.jpg. But that wasn’t enough for me (this is actually the first nail polish I bought this year and I’ve already worn it), so I wanted to add something to make it different. Remember my Christmas nails? Here’s a picture of the nail polishes I used to refresh your memory: http://www.flickr.com/photos/90490981@N05/8302350308/in/photostream/. I used the second one on the left to coat over the light baby blue color making it glimmer and shine more, giving it a more winter-y effect. And of course, I posted up my pictures for you all as well: http://www.flickr.com/photos/90490981@N05/sets/72157632417749393/with/8341521584/. I’ll be doing my nails again soon so be on the look out! Happy holidays!
