My First French!


Remember when I posted the China Glaze Crackle entry? I wanted those to last all week until my test. I couldn't have failed more at that. While I was studying I somehow had the urge to peel off the polish! I was doing it kind of subconsciously and I tried to stop but I would keep catching myself doing it. So after a few days of re-doing them, I decided to take it off and try something new. My french tip guides came in the mail and I was planning on saving them for the first mani after my test but it was Thursday already and I was told that I should relax and not study the day before the MCAT.  I half listened to that advice and studied until noon and then did my nails after lunch. I wanted to try out Sally Hanson - Pacific Blue, so I guess this is my first official swatch too.
Sorry my camera isn't that great. The color is pretty accurate though. I've wanted a pretty blue for a while and when I saw this one I fell in love. It's so creamy and beautiful!!! It went on really well and I didn't have any trouble. For once it's not even messy around my cuticles! I was going to keep my nails as is but I just couldn't leave them plain so I tested out the tip guides.

 I used Revlon - Metallic and m57 for this one.

The first picture is color accurate but I thought it came out clearer with the flash on. 
I really liked how they came out and they looked especially pretty after a coat of Seche Vite
My mom didn't like the leopard print on the tips. She said it looked like it was peeling off.

I'm going to Alexandria, Virginia tomorrow ans I'll be in the DC area until Saturday. Does anyone know any good nail polish supply stores or anything fun to do while I'm there?
