I painted my nails for the first time in several months (horrors, I know) last week. I had a function to go to and COULD NOT show up with naked nails. After much deliberation, I decided on my very favorite polish – Chanel Peridot. The last time I wore this polish it chipped badly within a day or two. But this time I’ve had a lot more luck with it, and almost a week later it’s still going strong. This could be because I now have my nails cut super short. Since taking off the acrylics, my nails are horribly thin and flexible. I miss my acrylics! Of course, if I could get my nails to grow strong again, I’d be just as happy with them. But, anyway, I’m very happy my Peridot is lasting this time. It really is a gorgeous color, and I’m so glad I gifted it to myself last summer.
It’s been awhile since I purchased new polish too. Back in May, I was tempted (and caved) by the China Glaze Hunger Games polishes. It was so hard to narrow down my pile of must-haves, but I ended up with three: Smoke and Ashes, Agro, and Luxe and Lush.
I like Smoke and Ashes, but I wish the subtlety of the color showed up better. Of course, it looked good with the book I also picked up back in May. I’ll have to see if I can get a better photo when I wear it next time.
And Agro was really beautiful on. I wish I’d gotten a better photo of it, but you get the idea on the color.
I haven’t tried my Luxe and Lush yet, but I think I may when the Peridot begins showing wear.
And this weekend, I got to take a look through a friend’s swatchicles. I really love the idea of doing this with my polish stash. What a great way to compare colors! I’ll have to think about doing this. I think the first thing I need to do for sure is get out my polish and do a little organizing.
