Tag: nail strips
Today I’m wearing Essie Sleek Stick nail appliques in So Haute! (No, I’m not shouting that sentence at you…So Haute! actually has an exclamation point in the name!) (There, that last one…I was shouting.) I’ve not gone ga-ga over nail strips because I do nail art. And I’ve always thought polish strips were for people who don’t do nail art. But the texture on this design is really spectacular and I was surprised by how much I loved the look. On the first trip out of the house wearing them…I bet I got a half a dozen compliments! You can see full-sized pics in the gallery at the end of the post.

Until now, I didn’t fully appreciate the term ”squishy” to describe polish. But “squishy” is the very first word that came to mind when I got to the second coat of Orly Shockwave. It’s a squishy, royal blue, creamy jelly. It’s also a very pretty blue that fills the void between summer neon and winter navy. I think I actually prefer this on shorter nails. Shockwave does remind me of China Glaze Manhunt…but I haven’t compared them yet.
