Nail of the Day???? The Face Shop Nail Polish in BR805

You might have noticed that there are almost NO Nail of the Day (or Week, or anything!) posts on my blog.
That's because I am a TOTAL FAILURE when it comes to painting my fingernails!  My toenails are painted as long as the weather is warm (about April - October), but my fingers - never!


Why don't I paint my nails?  Because I'm really uncoordinated with my left hand!  I've also never had long nails in my life, and I can't stand having more than a week's growth on my fingers.  I bump and cut my fingers too often to wear nail polish!

However... I decided to start getting into the world of nail polish thanks to the love I have received from some bloggers!


The Face Shop Nail Polish in BR805
(a gift from Dina)

This is a beautiful mauve nail polish that I was excited to try!

One coat...
VERY sheer, and not very glossy!

Two coats...
Getting better, but still paler than the color in the bottle!

Three coats!!
Looks pretty good!
(Yes, I did nick my pinky finger.  I told you I bump my fingers too often!)

At this point, it was getting difficult for me to get a coat on without getting streaks!
Although the formula is thin, I needed a fair amount of it on the brush so that I could avoid the streaks.

It's a very nice color, and it's great for work!

Thanks again, Dina!

xoxo, K

  10. it's a nice shade to wear for work :) I'm not that great with my left hand either, but it just takes some practice - all the more reason to paint your nails more often!

    ok so I need to send you a bottle of seche vite - it'll really help with preventing you from nicking the polish before it's dry! It's a great, shiny topcoat that dries fast, so even if your polish color is still wet, you can apply it & it'll lock the color in and dry in say, a minute or so :)
