Manicure Monday: Turquoise Crackle meets Papaya Punch

5 years ago
Sung in my best Bangles voice... It's just another manic Monday, I wish it was Sunday, 'Cause that's my funday, My I don't have to runday. It's just another manic Monday!

Monday's are tough sometimes. You've just had a fun weekend and now - ugh - work. What's fun in that?

Sure there's this thing called a paycheck at the end of the week - but gosh - it's five whole days to get there. So I thought it would be fun if every Monday - to start a new blog post with all the fun colored, sparkly, shiny and oohhh how the heck did she do that manicures I've been sporting lately.

This week's was from China Glaze - it's a turquoise crackle called Crushed Candy over a metallic orange called Papaya Punch.  I recommend only one layer of base coat, one coat of Papaya Punch, one coat of Crushed Candy Crackle and two - yes - two layers of top coat.  The crackle gave my nails a weird texture almost scratchy feel.  It also was more matte than I would have liked.  By applying an extra top coat the next day my nails were super shiny - and six days later - only one barely visible chip. Can't.  Stop.  Looking at them.  LOVE!

NOTE: Be sure to let each coat dry though before applying another!
