Orly Sweet Peacock + First Laser Mani!!!

So today I have for you Orly Sweet Peacock.  A stunning blue foil.  I originally wasn't going to get this but it came in an uber cheap pack of 3 (That also included Fowl Play and Lucky Duck).

Application was easy as pie (what does that even mean? Baking pie? Eating pie? 3.14?).  Whatever.  The formula was easy as folding a piece of paper in 2.  I got full coverage in 2 coats.  And it dried faster than the speed of light... well slower, but that saying makes more sense.

So after 2 days I decided I wanted to liven it up a bit and I used tape and did my first laser mani!!! Ok well second. Mt first was a disaster of epic proportions.  The only eff ups I had here were you can see on my index finger one of the lasers stops abruptly.  I was using Sally Hanson's Xtream Wear in Ivy League and as some of yo might know the bottles are long as well as the brushes.  Anyways it dripped down from the top (Fun fact:  I started writing this post Friday and on a whim went out for dinner with friends. A glass full of liquor berry's, the same clothes, and 2 days later It's Sunday evening I'm back home picking up from where I left off.) and it pooled when I removed the tape.  Luckily despite that it pooled in to create a crisp line.

I've currently had the many on for almost 6 days now and there is only tip wear!!!  Yay!!!

I change clothes now!!!

It's currently Monday... This post took 4 days from start to finish.  And my nails are significantly shorter.

    1. I like them especially for shimmery stuff. The flash isn't as overwhelming.
