summer '11 manic mermaid
to me, summer hasn't started 'til it's just before the 4th ;) so in honor of the all the tanning i wish i was doing, i decided to go coral! i painted 1 coat Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Snappy Sorbet. i was a little disappointed with the formula; usually easy to work with, i found it sticky and thin. i topped the orangey-coral with Essie in shade #540, Ticker Tape. this Essie polish usually takes a bit longer to dry. for top coat i used China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat, although next time i'd like to use something a little thicker. all in all, i am quite satisfied with the results! i only wish i had a better camera to photograph these beauties!
