NPP Day 13: Mermaidy Goodness

Oops, I thought I had queued this up to be posted, but I actually just left it open in my drafts. My bad. So this is a late post, I guess.

Three polishes today:

day 13 polish 3

OPI Liquid Sand in It’s Frosty Outside

Liquid sand was a limited edition thing from OPI and it’s honestly one of my favorite polishes of all time. The texture isn’t overwhelming, and the sparkle is to die for. You can top it with a clear topcoat if you want to smooth out the texture, but it wears really well without a topcoat as well.

SaQu Polish. No name, just a sticker on the bottom that says 099

This no-name polish works pretty well, but the wear time could be better. I’m keeping it for now, but I’ll be tossing it if a close enough color-dupe comes around.

Sephora by OPI in Tempted By Teal

I really like this polish, but I also really like teal. As usual the OPI formula is solid. No complaints here.

And here’s the finished look. I love the teal and green together. Full disclosure, I picked three colors I knew I loved because I was going away for the weekend (spoiler alert: I actually pre-painted my nails for the week and queued them up) and the mani ended up holding up on my fingers for 5 days before some serious chips started happening. So overall solid job, nail polish.

NPP Day 9: Very Sloppy

Full disclosure: I’ve gotten a little lazy with my polish now that I know it’ll only be on my fingers for a day. Today’s a little bit incredibly sloppy. Now that you’ve been warned, here are the polishes in question:

day 9 polish 1

saQu nail color in White Fever

As far as white polishes go, this is second place so far. White polishes are SUPER difficult to make look good, and this did a fairly okay job at doing its job. It looks TERRIBLE in the picture, but that’s because I got impatient and layered it on without letting it dry fully. I’m going to hold onto it for now, but if I’m not happy with it after a few more manis, I’ll be tossing this.I’m still not a super huge fan of any of the white polishes in my collection, though. I may need to go out and find a good replacement once I’m done going through my collection.

ORLY polish in Spark

I love this color. I’m gonna keep it. That’s about all I can say about that.

day 9 polish 3

China Glaze in Flip Flop Fantasy

This is a unique color in my collection. The formula honestly isn’t ideal, but how often am I going to be wearing a radioactive polish? Once again, this is a keeper.

And here’s the (super ugly) mani:

Not my best, but new polish tommorow so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
