I was at the boytoy's house last week and he decided that he wanted to help pick out my nail polish. So he dug through my bag of nail polishes that I happened to have with me (because I usually have my base and top coats, and a couple colors with me for some odd reason) and he chose Fair Play and Set in Stone to accent.
Essie's Fair Play I got at ULTA on clearance, which is awesome because I never see Essie on sale. It is a slate color that started out almost blue when I first put it on, but two days later looked entirely gray. It went on pretty smoothly, I did two coats on my nails and three on my thumbs. I guess because they're bigger nails there's more room to have balding? The color was really pretty on it's own and demure, but I can't leave well enough alone.
Set in Stone is a awesome combination of glitter and chunky, reflective hexagons that I kept getting distracted by. It sucked to get off, like all glitter, but it is one of my favorites right now. I'm trying to keep myself from putting it on top of EVERYTHING.
At the end of the day, I still love Essie. I think I'm going to do this again after the damage from my acrylics grows out so my nails look smooth and pretty. :-)
