First, I really wanted to file down/reshape my nails but find it easier to do so with a solid color on my nails. So I reached for Sinful Colors Cream Pink. Cute pink, has a nice gold shimmer to it that is not captured here. Anyways once that was on my nails I got lazy and didn't want to file. But I also wasn't really digging the color on me so I decided to play around with it a bit. Enter Cover Band Sticks & Stones. (For those of you that don't know-this is, in my opinion, a better dupe for Lynnderella Connect The Dots and is available only from Ninja Polish.) On to some pics and then I'll share my thoughts about it!
Seriously the longest my nails have been in a long time.
Sticks & stones may...
break my bones...
but words will...
never hurt me.
This felt so 80's! I really wanted to love it, and it did kind of grow on me. There were a couple of things I didn't like, and it really wasn't the fault of the polish. (Except for a couple of the hexagons-like the one on my ring finger-had edges that were curled up just a tiny bit which caused me to pick them off!) I prefer to keep my nails shorter, the length and shape of some of my nails was really bugging me. Also I am not much of a pink person. I definitely am going to try this again soon but using a different base color. I'm thinking a sea foamy or even neon green! Finally I think it would have turned out better with just a little less glitter. I am determined to do this in a way that I love! :)
So what do you guys think? Is this a trend that you like or does it not appeal to you? What color do you think would look good under it?
Hope you all had a great weekend, wishing you a wonderful Monday!
