MAC - Dry Martini

i have a few pictures to put up since i last posted, there was more but after looking at a few of them again...yikes. anyway, here's one of my favorite colors, MAC's Dry Martini from the Jin Soon collection. sorry about the tipwear, i had this on for a few days before I remembered to get a picture of it. this is 3 coats, indoors.

it's a little darker IRL. you could use 2 coats for this, but they'd have be thicker since at first this color looks really gross (which you can kind of see at the base of my nail where i didn't cover up the first coat). there is a little streakiness, but it's evened up by the 3rd coat. i love wearing shades like this, i'm so glad i got it!

A little gamblin' is fun when you're with me!

Ahhh, I haven't posted in way too long! I was busy this past week, and on top of that the computer wasn't working for a few days so I had no chance to post anything.

Although I do have a really cool french I did. It's two coats of Hot Topic Silver Glitter, (which is actually more of a shimmery foil-y silver. I usually associate glitters with bumpiness which this color didn't have) and then the tip is China Glaze GR8. I also added some dice (die?) from a nail sticker set I got at Sally's.

Indoors, flash.

Indoors, no flash.

The tips look less thick IRL, and the dent on my index finger is less obvious too! I've had this on for about two days I think, and I don't think it's going anywhere within the next few days either. Normally I change my nails every 2 or 3 days, but I really like this.

China Glaze: Atlantis and Muse

i LOVE these two! both were so distracting too. Muse is a Sally's exclusive i think, you can get Atlantis at Sally's as well, or 8ty8beauty/Head2ToeBeauty/Transdesign. both are two coats, Atlantis has two coats of top coat since it was pretty rough, but you could probably get away with one.

Muse, outdoors, no flash:

Muse is a bit more teal IRL, it wasn't very to get a good picture of. It does have some brush strokes, but it's not as bad as the Romantique collection. it's definitely worth it though, it's gorgeous and reminds me of an ocean!
