Happy Monday all! I am in awe, I can’t believe this is my 300th nail entry. I started my blog back in Nov of 2011. That is a whole lot of nail pictures almost three years worth. I remember when I started I was so astonished when I got just one follower or like. I am amazed that I continue to document all my manicures, but I am driven by a passion and love for nail polish. I don’t get paid or get free polish from this blog; I do it for fun and to share my love for nail polish. It is funny I was looking back to my first few diary entries and was shocked on how much my posts have changed since then. In the beginning I never used a clean up brush, I took my pics with my iPod mostly with a flash in hallways or even my bathroom with terrible lighting. In my #3 post on 11/9/11 I talked about having 180 bottles of nail polish, wow that was a lot to me back then. Now I am pushing 1000!! I plan to continue to put my nails out there until it no longer is fun to do so.
On to the nails:
Last Friday and Saturday was epic. I got three boxes delivered to me all containing nail polish. YAY happy dance!!! I got my Zoya order, my SquareHue subscription box and my Julep box. Needless to say I was in nail polish heaven.
For this dark vampy manicure I used my new SquareHue flat black Via Montenapoleone. Via Montenapoleone is from the 10.14 Milan passport collection. I put this black on all my nails but my ring finger. I only did two coats for full flawless coverage and no top coat bc I wanted the black to remain flat. I am in love with this flat black polish, bravo SquareHue. For my ring accent nail I used my brand new Zoya Ultra Pixie Dust Arianna. Arianna is a red wine ultra textured matte glitter polish packed with mega hex particles. Ohhhhhh I die. It is so unique and beautiful. I loved it so much on my ring finger so I added it to all my tips with a sponge eye makeup applicator. The result is amazing. Super dark and vampy just perfect for this time of year.
Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
Stay tuned for the next installment of the diary of a nail polish addict.
