Stupid Holiday! Stupid Mani!
I hate this motherfucking mani.
No pictures, it’s just a friggin mess and I’m too tired to mess with it anymore. This Milani “Green Glow” is incredibly sheer, which I didn’t realize during swatching because the plastic nail wheel is uniform in color. Three coats on my nail, but the white tips of my nails were still extremely visible.
So I stripped it all off. I then applied a layer of OPI “Alpine Snow” and covered it in green. Still took 3 layers of green to become uniform. So that’s 4 layers.
Then I tried to stamp the shamrock but I was impatient and rushed it, resulting in smudges. Cleared the smudges and fixed the base coat. Then bumped my thumb before it was set. Had to clean it off and start over.
I’m done. Plain green, no taping, no stamping. If the green had just been opaque I would have gotten somewhere. I’ll never understand how ultra-sheer acid green could be good for anyone.
I don’t even want a bright green mani. I just don’t want to get hassled at work tomorrow.
OH YEAH and my Chanel “Peridot” dupe, Catrice “Genius in the Bottle,” arrived from Germany today. Ohmygodiloveit. I can’t wait for this holiday to pass so I can wear it. But unfortunately that duochrome skews so copper that I’m sure no holiday-type jerks would notice the green.
SO MUCH COMPLAINING! I’ll be more chipper Saturday night when I can ditch this BS manicure. Here, check out Genius in the Bottle:
Here’s me trying to show off the duochrome loveliness without showing the shit-show that is my current polish job.
