Best blog post name ever!! That’s all I have to say. Also, I just realized that this is the skankiest name with the most expensive nail polishes! Totally makes me think of the Dolly Parton quote “it takes a lot of money to look this cheap.” Anyways … Like I said in my last post I started my summer internship and being a legal internship, I have to dress rather professionally and conservatively. I wore China Glaze “Sweet Hook” for my first day and while no one said anything, every single female I saw in the entire building either had bare nails or nude/sheer pink nails. So I think I’m going to stick with the nudes until I’m a little more comfortable with my job. So I went to my favorite nude, Deborah Lippmann “Naked.”
I was on a hunt last year for probably 4 or 5 months looking for that perfect nude for mannequin hands. Mannequin hands was a trend about a year and a half ago that was all about wearing a nail polish that matched your skin tone perfectly. It made your fingers look ultra long and skinny because it made your nails completely blend in with your skin. I bought probably 4 or 5 polishes looking for the perfect nude before I found this one. Naked is seriously a perfect nude for my skin tone. Its a warmer beige so it matches the pink in my skin. I haven’t worn this polish in the longest time and after applying it I was dumbfounded as to why. The only downside to Naked is that it is a little sheer and requires 3 coats.
But honestly, I don’t care because it dries amazingly and is super glossy. Then I couldn’t just have it be a normal nude manicure, so I spiced it up with a nude glitter! Butter London “Tart with a Heart” is a nude jelly based opalescent glitter that has every color glitter in there! It even has flecks of black which makes it look a little gritty. As you can see from the bottle, this is also sheer and I’ve used this polish quite a bit. I’ve featured this polish before on my blog as well, so if you want to see what it looks like on its own you can go here! But I loved how it made Naked stand out a little while still keeping it relatively tame. This is 1 coat over Naked. The only downside is that it took away from the glossiness of Naked.
