Laying it on thick.

Nail polish! 

I haven't been posting nails lately because either 1) I didn't find the polish I was wearing very inspiring; 2) my nails looked great but there wasn't enough light to photograph them, or 3) I wasn't wearing any polish at all(gasp!).

But yesterday I lucked out:  put on a great combo and had good light to take a picture!


This two of the polishes from CND "The Look for Fall 2011" - Midnight Sapphire and Sheer 24K  Sparkle.  Wearing "The Look" makes me feel like one of the cool kids.

You've seen the gold before, but this is the first time I'm using one of the darker polishes from this set.  The formula was really incredible:  this is just one thickish coat each of the color and the effect, topped by CND  Speedey topcoat.



I have to say though, I just don't "get" the CND brush.  The bristles don't fan out like they do with other brands, so it has taken me some practice to be able to apply CND polishes evenly.  Worth it though, I guess, because these are intensely pigmented.

Now I can't wait to try out the Dark Amethyst!
