Alphabet of Polish – D

Time for my “D” polishes!!! Woo!!! I did really like both of these manis. I got a ton of compliments on the second one I’ll show you. Before I overload you with pictures I want to let you know that this “Alphabet of Polishes” has really been fun and frustrating. What in the world am I going to do for letters like “K” or “X”. O boy…

On to my first “D” mani… I used Julep’s Donna and Pure Ice’s Draped. Draped is one of Pure Ice’s matte finish polishes they had out around the holiday. I love it!! I left it with a matte finish for this mani.

I really like Donna. It’s a n interesting blue color I got during Julep’s sale that supported Human Trafficking.

I had some serious bad luck with my car while I had this mani on. Now I’m not saying it’s the polish but… If the shoe fits. Haha! Anyway, I got a flat tire on the highway, my second one this month! Stupid low-profile tires. They’re killing me. I had to sit on the side of the highway waiting for my Mom to come pick me up and for the tow truck. My Mom finally got there, I called the tow guy and we were on our way. I had to get something out of my Mom’s trunk for her on my way to her car and this happened…

Not only is this ugly but it hurt!! It hurt bad!! Ugh! Had to cut all my nails down so they would match. The tips of my fingers were so sore and my fingers look so fat with short nails!

For my second “D” mani I did dots. Of course. I used Zoya’s Ginessa as my base coat. This is a really shimmery white color. I wasn’t sure what in the world possessed me to get this color but I actually really liked it. It really made my dots pop! For those dots I used Julep’s Bethany, which is a gorgeously bright orangish pink. I love it as well. I can feel a lot of use in summer coming with this color! I got tons of compliments on this mani. For some reason no one believed I did the dots myself.

Sorry for the messing pictures. Sometimes I forget to retake my pictures after I’ve bombarded Ashtree with my art! 🙂

“E” was difficult. I had Evangeline from Julep’s mystery Cupid box I recently got and was excited to use it. The second “E” mani was much more difficult. But I made it easier with a trip to Ulta! Yay! Look for my “E”‘s in the next couple of days!!

Remover Tip

So, I attempted a remover tip I read on the Interwebs. I was researching what the best remover was and came across a post that said the best way to remove glitter polish is this: Soak your cotton ball in polish remover. Lay the cotton ball over your nail and cover in aluminum foil. Let sit for 10 minutes and remove. Voila! A couple extra tips from me, have a paper towel handy, the remover drips down your fingers, and when you remove the foil squeeze and rotate back and forth to make sure to get the edges of your fingers as well. This worked perfectly on my base coated, triple polished, top coated nails with no problems!!!
