So I got some "me time" in the evening, and here's what I did:
|China Glaze Senorita Bonita|
Island Escape collection, summer 2011
I wasn't sure I would like this color, but I ended up loving it! It's similar to Zoya Danii, but with a lot more red. And, of course, the amazing China Glaze glass flakes. This is two coats. The first coat went on rather sheer, and I thought it would end up being a three-coater, but the second (albeit thick) coat evened things out. The only problem I had was that my brush was frayed at the ends. Again.
I'm starting to think that a lot of my 'shrinkage' problems are due to operator error. I noticed a few days ago that I've been swooping the brush up and off my nail just before I reach the end of the nail. It looks like I've covered the nail while the polish is wet, but after it dries, it looks like it's shrunk! I've been trying to make myself keep the bristles on the nail all the way to the end and then stroke down and off the nail. It's really hard to do - I think I instinctively swoop up trying to avoid getting polish on my fingertips, because I've been keeping my nails pretty short.
