I haven’t done a nail polish post in ages. I’m into mini polishes these days because I’ve run out of storage for nail polish!
Recently, I picked up a mini bottle of sheer blue sparkle polish from PIXEL Nail Lacquer at Ulta for 69 cents – there’s no shade name on it. Plus I just received my first bottle of Ciate polish – a beautiful periwinkle blue called “double bubblegum” – in a subscription box. Ciate London, if you haven’t tried it either – is an upmarket English makeup brand. The nail polish is available at Sephora among other places, and it’s on the pricey side: $15 for a full size and $8 for a mini. Unfortunately, I had a bit of chipping the next day, but I redid those nails and we’ll see how long the polish will last.
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Smooth & Strong as a basecoat
- two coats of Ciate Mini Paint Pot in double bubblegum, though one coat looked like it would have been enough – maybe that’s why it chipped?
- one coat of PIXEL Nail Lacquer blue sparkle topper on my ring fingers and thumbs
- NYC In a Minute Quick Dry in clear Grand Central Station as a topcoat.
I love these pretty spring-y shades. I think they look great with my silk mohair pastel granny squares scarf that I crocheted a couple of years ago.
It’s finally warm enough to switch to this light as a feather scarf from my heavy winter ones.
