    ‘Pink & White’ gel nails. The base is clear and the tips look like gold chunky flecks. They are way grown out and I’m debating if I should just let them grow on out and do natural for a while or get a new set. Gotta wait until next Fri for payday to see what I want to do.

  12. Mel

    Zoya Robyn but it’s all chipped up and gross so I’m about to change it to Zoya Renee

  13. Janie

    Revlon’s Charming. I’d been on a hunt for the perfect creamy pastel lavender and I found it with this shade. I can already tell it’s going to be a spring favourite of mine.

  14. nikki chan

    this seems like a ton of nail polish but i really like it and i think it’s cute for spring.
    2 coats of MAC Abalone shell as a base
    random and different sized dots from the tips down about 1/3 of the nail of essie turquoise&caicos, essie lapis of luxury, and opi fly from nicki minaj collection

    One coat of L.A.Colors Color Craze in Twilight, 2 coats SH HD in Laser, 1 coat SH HD in Spectrum, 1 coat $OPI Blasted Top Coat in Indigo Blasted, & all topped with shiny top coat. It looks amazing on my short nails: classic dark blue nails with a twist.

    I’ll have green toenails by tonight. Probably ChG Glittering Garland, but I may throw some of Orly’s Here Comes Trouble on there too.

      I just did that – they do need a rest now and again. I use that time to do intensive moisture treatments that I know don’t go through lacquer.
