OPI Tickle My France-y

This was 3 coats because, at the time, I despised VNL. I don't think it's very flattering on me. I'm going to give it another shot eventually and use 2 coats to see how that fairs. TMF is one of the many OPIs that have fell victim to the infamous color changes. Usually the newer versions are worse. Think MPJ & NLTM. I think the newer version of this is more mauve-y. I don't know which version I have.

Sky + Revvvolution

I added Color Club Revvvolution to HC Sky a few days later.

Revvv looks like a dud, but I swear it's not. These are just terrible pictures, but they are the only ones I have. For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, Revvvolution is a black/charcoal holographic polish. Unfortunately, there have been "duds" emerging recently, most notably with the Color Club holos. Some say the holo pigment is becoming more rare and therefore more expensive. Lucky for me, none of my CC holos are duds.

Hard Candy Sky

Sometimes, my phone & my bedside lamp makes for the best pictures:

You can see the hidden blue shimmer.
This is the new version of Sky. I used Butter London Horah Henri as underwear (which was a terrible idea) and two coats of Sky. Somewhat streaky, but it's worth the trouble because it's gorgeous.

Finger Paints Did You Ast-Her Out?

Two coats, went on like butter.
Looks a bit too orange/coral in this picture. It's more pink in real life.
I topped this with CND Raspberry Sparkle on Day 2 or 3 (of course I forgot to take a picture) bu it was gorgeous.

China Glaze Pelican Gray

Pelican Gray is from the Spring 2011 collection, Anchor's Away. I bought the whole thing and I don't regret it.

Medium grey with microshimmer. Seriously a must have. Probably 2 coats (I don't remember).

I'm sure you noticed how much longer my nails were here. These pictures are about 6 months old. I must ask for an opinion...which length do you prefer? Lately I've been keeping them short, basically to keep them all uniform. Filing my nails gives me the heebie-jeebies and since I'm accident prone they're always different lengths and I think it looks nicer when they're all the same, which means keeping them short. I know some of you will say "If you like them short, keep them!" and I know; I plan on it. Just like hearing different perspectives :]
