Exhibit A:
I'm always too impatient to allow my nail polish to completely dry before I start doing other things. In this particular case, I'd used about 8 layers of two different polishes trying to salvage the clumpy messiness of the first two coats I'd already applied. Didn't work buddy.

So I looked in my stash and found these >>Kiss Nail Dress<< nails in Jeweled Strips. Think I bought 'em once upon a time when they were on sale.



I figured that if I cheated a bit with the nail dress nails, I could at least be patient enough to allow half of my nails to dry. Right? And I was. Yay me!!!!! I used >>Sinful Colors Professional nail polish<< in "Open Seas" for my Mint & Gold set below.



They give me a sparkly Christmas feel. I really liked 'em! If I had to choose a favorite nail polish brand, it'd have to be Sinful. They have a wiiiiide range of colors, can be found at your local Walgreens for only $1.99, seem to be high quality colors, and they dry pretty fast. And I always, always, always top them with my >>Seche Ultra-V<< top coat which can be found at >>Sally Beauty Supply<<. This stuff can run you upwards of about 10 bucks if you don't have a Sally's card, but it is so worth it. It dries fast and super shiny. It is actually supposed to be used in conjunction with the >>Seche Ultra-V UV Lamp<< which really works amazing, but my bulb has blown out on my lamp and I haven't bought a replacement. So for the moment, air drying is fine.




So what's the verdict? I was actually able to wear this set for about 3 days. Which is waaaaaay more  than I can usually wear a set of nails. They probably would have lasted longer had I applied another topcoat on day 2, but eh, now you're asking for too much. My polish usually tends to chip at the tip because of how vigorously and often I wash under my nails when I'm at work. So I don't expect much in that area.



And because I had Christmas themed nails, I had to do an impromptu at home Christmas inspired photo shoot. I just had to, you know?


After the green began to chip, I replaced it with "Black on Black" by Sinful Colors to stretch the set out another couple days. All in all, I'm pretty well pleased with these nails!!! Yep.
