Remember when I wrote about things other than my nails? Yeah, me neither. All the time I spent waiting for this domain, I had many ideas for what I’d do with it when I finally got it, and when I did finally get it, I decided to use it as an outlet for my fiction, but I find myself writing less these days, and not because I want to. I do my nails every week without fail, so that’s why all the entries have been about Manicure Monday. I hope to get back to fictioneering soon.
This is a manicure I’ve wanted to try for quite some time. It reminds me of a Sephora bag, with the alternating matte and glossy stripes. It’s one of the simpler manicures I’ve done recently; there’s no glitter, there’s only one color, and you wouldn’t notice the glossy tips unless you were very close. I like the color, and I like that it’s understated, but I wish it was just a little more noticeable. I love it, but I’m not in love with it.
When I bought the matte top coat, I thought I was going to use it all the time, so I bought another one so I’d never run out. This is only the third time I’ve used it. I expected that I would like it more, but I feel like a glossy finish gives the color more life, more sparkle, and putting the matte coat over it just sucks the life out of it. This shade, See You Soon, has this beautiful blue shimmer, and I felt like I was killing it when I mattified it. I hoped it would come back with the Seche Vite on the tips, and it did a little. It’s nowhere near as sparkly as it was.
Meanwhile, for the rest of the week, I’ll try to find something to write about that isn’t about my nails.
