Today, I got my first compliment on my nails in ages. The nurse at my doctor’s office told me she loved my mani. Yes! And she thought I had my nails done professionally. Woohoo!
Last night, I did my nails while watching the State of the Union address. I was in the mood for periwinkle, so I dug out the mini bottle of Double Bubblegum from Ciaté that I got in an introductory box from LuxePineapple. That box was a real steal: $7 delivered! I got the mini nail polish, about 3 skincare samples, a beautiful navy blue gel liner from Laura Geller, and something else that I can’t remember. If you haven’t checked out LuxePineapple, you should. They have individual boxes that you can buy as well as individual products under their own brand name. The prices for the boxes are generally pretty great.
Back to my nails. The periwinkle cream nail polish from Ciaté is so much prettier than grape Double Bubblegum. But I thought I’d take it up a notch with Fairy Dust from China Glaze, a topcoat with tiny, holographic glitter. I learned about Fairy Dust from the funniest post I think I’ve ever read, a post on The Mercurial Magpie. In spite of or maybe because of a few cuss words, I almost died laughing. Needless to say, I bought it immediately. But now I love Fairy Dust even more than when I originally reviewed it. On its own, it’s meh, but on top of another shade, it is magic!
So here are my pretty Fairy Princess nails. I love ’em!
And in the sunlight! In person, they are so sparkly!
Have you tried China Glaze Fairy Dust? What’s on your nails today?
