Essie Fiji + Nubar 2010 = Probably the girliest thing I've ever had on my nails!

So I was in a stanky mood the other day(I think Kas and I are mentally connected or something because I find our bad days coincide far too often) and I decided to cheer myself up by doing a nice treatment on my hair and putting some pretty, girly, pink polish on my nails.  I reached into the Untrieds bin and found Essie Fiji, the much discussed pink I had bought but never actually gotten around to putting on.  I put two thin coats of Nubar 2010 on top to add a little punch and voila!

It's a beautiful pink, to be sure, but I don't think it's stealing the title of my favourite light pink away from Pink Friday just yet. The formula leaves a LOT to be desired.  At three coats it still wasn't perfect, but since I was layering I didn't bother with a fourth.  I think I could get away with 3 VERY CAREFUL coats, but 4 would be the norm.  It's also a little thick, but not unmanageable.  It gives me a little bit of lobster hands and unless I was going to high tea, I probably wouldn't reach for it again on a normal day unless I was layering it again.  But, that said, I still like this.  It's a very pretty, simple look.  I'll keep it on until it chips.  Going on three days now!

Look at that sparkle!
