I do have a quick NOTD for you, pic taken yesterday before "the incident". I've been craving a red for a while, and have quite a few in my collection but Harpers Bazarre are giving away a free Leighton Denny polish with their July issue, one of them being this brick red creme. I wasn't going to get any, as the mag itself is £4.20 and I wasn't wowed by any of the colours, but then I saw Liloo's swatches and review and I couldn't resist. The pic below is 2 coats od Viva la Diva, no topcoat after about half a day of wear.
I had a similar experience to Liloo as the inner cap came out of the outer one on my bottle, but no biggie. I just pushed it back on and it didn't cause me any problems. But unfortunately that's where the similarities end. I struggled a bit with application. First couple of nails were fine, then it started getting gloopy. I wasn't taking my time, just being average I guess. Anyway, I managed my two coats, cleaned up and went to get my Seche, but I couldn't find it. Not bothered, I waited for it to dry some before before I could add my second favourite top coat, NYC. 10 minutes, not dry enough, 20 minutes, still mess-up-able, 45 minutes and I would have still been in for wrinkles had I needed a wee. An hour later, I gave up waiting and went to bed, ready for the sheet marks in the morning.
Fortunately the sheet marks were restricted to my right hand, but I didn't bother top coating, thinking I'd take it off that evening. Liloo's swatches show glossy, high shine nails without top coat, but if I wanted that finish TC was essential. Then the boyface jumped on me and the last thing I wanted to do was change my manicure.
So altogether yesterday was a pretty miserable day :( Now I'm going to attempt to paint my nails... I don't know if I'm lucky the bad hand is my non dominant left, so at least my nails will be nice on that hand. Every cloud and all that...
PS I can't see my followers - is blogger playing silly bugger again?
