NOTD 130 – Pink Lemonade

It seems like I haven’t posted in forever.. 😦

First, I will start with an update to the ‘Essie – Nail stickers’ , these things….. SUCKED! I put them on, on Wednesday morning I believe it was, and by Thursday on the plane they were already lifting up and peeling off. It was more of a nail sticker than a lacquer sticker like some others. Although the design was neat, I won’t be buying this brands ‘stickers’ again.

As most of you know by now the reason for my not posting much this last week, was that I went to visit my sister, brother-in-law and my new nephew in North Carolina. I left Thursday morning and came home Saturday night and had things to do around house before I left. I had such a nice time with my family and my new and first nephew 🙂 He is a little over a month old now and just too damn cute!

While away, my polishes I ordered from ‘Smitten Polish’ came in. My husband texted me a picture of them that simply said “your loots came” and I got so excited!! I purchased, “Winter is Coming“, “Pink Lemonade II”, and “Bluebird II”.

I first applied the ‘Pink Lemonade II’ and thought it was too sheer for my particular taste. The polish is gorgeous on its own don’t get me wrong, I am just personally not a fan of nail lines. I used “Ulta – Cream of the crop” as underwear as it matched very closely. I painted two very thin coats of ‘Cream of the Crop’ and then two – three thin coats of ‘Pink Lemonade II’ on each finger. On my left hand only, I did an accent nail using “Urban Decay – Hot Mess” a bright pink I thought would bring out the bright pink sequins in the Lemonade polish.

Here’s how it came out:
