Honestly can’t believe we’re already halfway through the year! Exams – or bajillion words essays in my case – are just around the corner, which means PROCRASTINATION TIME YAY not. I really shouldn’t procrastinate, but seriously, old habits die hard. I have two 2500 words essays due by the time this post is up, and thank God for that. I always leave things to the last minute, but I love just daydreaming about the time when everything’s done LOL, great use of my time I know.
|2 coats of Salt n’ Peppa over 3 coats of Green with Envy w/ Topcoat
Because Winter is here, I picked out a vibrant green polish to lighten up the mood a little. I’m quite fond of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line, there are some staples, along with some more interesting colours. Green with Envy is a bright pastel light lime green, that’s a lot of adjectives I know, but seriously, it’s a really unique green! It’s not quite as yellow toned as the photo in real life, and in certain lighting it looks like a straight up pastel green, but in natural lighting it is quite bright! I love unusual colours like this!
And because I have issues and just can’t leave a creme as is, I chucked some glitter on top to make it even whackier. I remember Salt n’ Peppa being one of my biggest lemmings when I first discovered the world of indie polish, and then when Polish Me Silly (they were still called Lush Lacquer at the time) came out with another amazing glitter (that I will feature soon I promise!) I finally bit the bullet and ordered from their Etsy shop. Then you know, life happened, and this polish just sat in my untrieds draw for two years, sad story. BUT the important thing is, I finally dug it out and tried it yay! Salt n’ Peppa is a mix of black, white and iridescent glitters in a clear base, making it the perfect glitter to put on top of any colour. The black and white glitters come in all shapes and forms – bar, big square, small square, hexagon, and the fine iridescent glitter stops it from becoming your run-of-the-mill black and white glitter. Because I had my bottle for quite a long time, I did have to use two coats to get a good glitter coverage, but if you just put the bottle upside down for a while (I had no patience for this), one coat should be plenty!
Hope you like this combo as much as I do, and just in cause you’re wondering, I have a total of 7 coats of nail polish on, and it actually doesn’t really bother me haha!
Where to buy:
I purchase my Sally Hansen polishes from Priceline, and Polish Me Silly polishes from their Etsy shop.
