Mani: Broken Lilac 5162013

Since I am about to change my nail color, I wanted to show you all what I am wearing on my nails right now. I like to show my nail color after a few days of my wearing it so that you can see how it holds up and what it looks like once the polish has fully hardened and settled. So for the past 5 days (I did my nails on Thursday, 5/16/2013), Ive been wearing Lacey Lilac by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. I absolutely LOVE pastel shades for the Spring/Summer and this is one of my go to shades for this time of year. I think this shade goes well against any skin tone and I love that these polishes are only $3.00. The manicure lasted well for these 5 days and now has some minor chipping but I can definitely wear this manicure for at least another 2 days before it would like have to come off. However, I really dislike chipped polish so once I get a big enough chip, I redo my nails.

So for this manicure I used:
*NAILENE 2 MINUTE QUICK DRY TOP COAT (as a base coat). I got this for only $1.00 at my local Dollar Tree a while ago and Im just trying to use it up. I dont like it as a top coat but it works great as a base coat.
*SALLY HANSEN XTREME WEAR NAIL COLOR IN LACEY LILAC. As I stated above this stuff is only $3.00 and in my opinion they are amazing for the price. The pigmentation is perfect, the formula is not too thick or thin and the brush is flat and therefore makes it really easy to use. It dries in a decent amount of time and dries nice and hard on the nails. 2 coats gave me full opacity. This shade is a cream finish lavender shade.
*NYC CRACK ME UP CRACKLING EFFECT TOP COAT IN SHOCK ME NYC. This was only $1.00 and these have to be the best crackle polishes I own in regards to the effect it creates (I havent tried the OPI or the China Glaze crackle polishes yet but Ive tried other brands). However, my accent nail chipped after only 2 days of wearing this manicure which sucked.
*L.A. COLORS COLOR CRAZE NAIL POLISH IN 582. This cost me $1.00 at Dollar Tree as well. It is a gorgeous clear based glitter polishes with purple and blue tiny glitter. I love this stuff it is absolutely gorgeous. However, I will likely have to trash it soon because it was kinda sticky and hard to apply so I had to mix it with just a bit of polish remover to loosen it up and allow it to apply evenly.
*SECHE VITE TOP COAT. This I usually get for about $5.00. This is my HOLY GRAIL top coat as of now! I have not found a better top coat so I will continue to use this stuff over every polish.

So thats pretty much it for this manicure. Now one coming soon. I will soon try to apply another top coat over my manicure a day or 2 after I do my nails to try to elongate the manicures life without chipping. Well see how that goes since I am always washing dishes, cooking, cleaning, chasing after my 3 year old and newborn and changing diapers. Til next time!!!

Thanks for checking this out!!
