Welcome to A Polished Life! This is our nail polish blog (plus a little something extra here and there) and we are ready to get started!
For my first mani, I originally wanted to try out some new BeautyUk polishes that I bought in a mini-pack at Ross. They were all unnamed so I emailed them, and Emma, the customer service agent I spoke with, was very nice and told me that they hadn't actually been from their nail range and didn’t have names :(. But, she did say that if they ever brought them out as single shades she would email me :)!
NOW ON TO THE MANI!
So, since I had six new BeautyUk polishes, and ten fingers, I decided, you know, maybe I should paint those other four nails as well. I was playing around with the idea of bright, neon colors and eventually came up with an inspiration point.
So, some of you may not know what these are, but I know some of you do…(ahem-hem you know who you are) and basically they are gloves with tiny flashing bright lights at the fingertips.
So…that’s what I did!
Now, I've done my research, and learned that blogging is equally parts awesome: bright, vibrant, fun, fantabulous, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, and fail: epically horrible, terrifying, awful and bleggghhh. I feel I have captured both of those aspects in my first mani. I kept messing up my right hand and eventually got my pointer and middle finger all screwed up. Eh, whatever. I used two coats of each polish and then 1 ½ coats of Wet n' Wild Kaleidescope. Then I sealed it all in with the world's greatest top coat- Seche Vite.
