And now comes the excuse... one of the reasons I haven't been posting is because my nails have been in transition. See, for the last four or five years, I've had gels on my nails, both to keep them strong and to not have to worry about painting them. Of course, one of those doesn't apply anymore (since I'm now obsessed with nail polish and like to paint them every couple days), so I decided to grow them out. Since gels cannot be soaked off with acetone (I think maybe some can, but not these), it was a VERY long process to grow them out. And of course, pieces chipped off sometimes and they wouldn't buff down perfectly smooth, so mostly they were NOT nice enough to photograph.
But now that the gel is completely gone, I'm having fun taking care of my nails and painting them often, as well as taking pictures of them! So here we are now, with nice new natural nails!
Visions of Sugarplum was an Ulta exclusive for Holiday 2009, and since it was free with an OPI purchase, I didn't think much of it at first. But when I tried it on, oh my gooses, it was gorgeous! I think it's glass fleck glitter because it's easy to take off, and I think it's kind of similar to a blackened Zoya Mimi.
