I have a lot of catching up to do! Finals are finally over!!! As of noon on cinco de mayo, I was officially in my second year of law school. I have 1 week off before my summer internship starts and another week after that before I have to take a summer class. So this week I’m going to catch up on all the books on my shelf that I’ve been waiting to read and painting my nails. But first I have to catch up on all the manicures I had during finals that I never posted on here. Starting with what I wore when I took my first final. Y’all know I love red and black manicures, but what you guys don’t know is that I love black and any type of “girly” color. Pink, purple, and red with a black accent nail, I’m in love. Also when I was thinking about my Zoya Earth Day order I saw a color similar to this purple and it reminded me that I haven’t worn it in a while.
Orly “Hype” is a nice red toned medium purple. This is one of the colors that I got in my swap with Zenorah, and I love that she sent me a little bottle. I really need to start buying the minis rather than full sizes because I have worn this color twice and no where near using up this bottle. There are so many full size polishes on my shelf that are used once and I could have saved so much money (not to mention storage space) if I had bought the minis. I love this color so much and I never would have picked it for myself. Only downside, this was 4 coats. But totally worth it because it dries to a matte finish so it dries really quickly. The formula was a little watery, which is why my pinky had some messy cuticles. But again, I love this color, totally worth it and its one of those colors that translates in every season. Bright enough for summer but dark enough for fall. Then I had to put some black in there, and since I love glitter I went for one of my favorite black glitters, OPI “Metallic for Life”. This is 2 coats and seriously one of my favorite black glitters of all time. I actually threw away another bottle after I bought this one because that could never compare. After writing this post, I really want to do this manicure again! I love girly colors, black and glitter.
