Welcome to week 1 of my nail polish challenge. I am determine to wear every single colour in the above gift set I received for Christmas. At least for 18 weeks, I will know exactly what colour I will be wearing. First up, A True Romantic. It's a very light colour and for those of you who know me, I really ♥ dark polish. I find that light polish doesn't apply properly and you need to apply more than two thick coats to get it all even. This polish is much more pink in real life, the photo actually makes the polish look like a lovely, every day colour. The photo below was taken from my iPhone (hubby's camera was nowhere to be found in the condo), it's crappy but I promise future posts will include a photo from a real camera.
Please excuse my rough, dry cuticles. I should have added some cuticle oil before taking the picture. I am not a big fan of this colour. It would be great for a french manicure but not to wear alone (well, in my opinion).
Nail tip #1
It's pretty tough to paint your own nails. If you get polish all over the sides or on your cuticle, it's okay. If you are like me, who paints their nails before bed, just leave the mess on your nails and when you shower the next morning, use a wet washcloth to remove all the excess polish left behind. It will leave you with a beautiful looking manicure.
