Last month was my birthday and my best friend got me a few nail things since she knows I like to do my own nails. I haven’t gotten a professional manicure in a while, not because I don’t like them, but because I’m trying to get better at doing my own nails. Plus I have a bunch of polishes that need to be used and it doesn’t hurt that I’m saving some money by doing my own nails. She got me a cuticle set and polishes amongst other things. I’ll be talking about the cuticle set in a post of its own sometime this fall after I’ve used it a few more times, but I did use it for this manicure here.
One of the polishes I got was “Old Park Lane” by Nails, Inc. I had an Essie effects polish, “Fringe Factor” with little fringe pieces that I had forgotten about and I thought it would go perfectly over top.
I love the combination. Originally, I thought the fringe coat would be more opaque so I was only going to do an accent nail but when I realized the fringe effects would be so spread out I decided to do all my nails.
The fringe reminds me of a game/toy I used to play as a kid where there were these tiny little metal pieces that looked just like this and you would use a magnet to move them around under the plastic covering. Does anyone know what I’m talking about?
Anyway, I’ve had this polish on for 5 days already and no chips!
