I'm lucky to be staying with a generous friend, and I've got a fair bit planned for the next few days. I am an obsessive planner in instances that involve less well-known territories and me being someone's guest; while I'm not sure how much polish hunting will be involved, there are two places I'd love to pop into if I have the time. I also may or may not believe that a pilgrimage to Tim Hortons is a slightly bigger priority.
Anyway, I needed a color that
- I wouldn't have to worry about,
- has proved to be extremely low-maintenance and no-fuss, and
- would be able to take me from an opera one night to a rock show the next and all over the city.
Enter Lincoln Park After Dark. This is one of my favorite polishes, and probably my first vampy.
Three coats with SV.
Sorry about the cuticles. It's a long story but I ended up with sheet marks, so I stopped in at a new nail place for a polish change. The nail tech was FAST and pretty thorough -- she did some clean-up with a brush and that made me very happy! She did paint right on my cuticles, but you can't have everything. Especially for the price ... $6.
And I'm sorry the pictures are so bad. I haven't done nail pics since last week and I'm feeling a bit out of practice. I'll probably reswatch this in a few months. Sigh.
Not much else of substance to say, except my nails look MUCH nicer IRL than they do in these pictures.
Also, vampies make me feel like this.
