Enchanted Polish July 2013

Every so often, if you are in the right place at the right time, you will meet someone who will change your life. Someone whose generosity never fails to impress. Who thinks about how they can make other people happy and then actually does something about it. For me, this moment was when I joined a nail polish sub on Reddit. There I met a group of ladies who have completely blown me away and who I feel very lucky to be able to call friends. A while ago I was bemoaning the fact that I hadn't seen Enchanted Polish July 2013 on the resale market for less than $50. I know, right? Total wishful thinking. I asked my friends to keep an eye out for me and let me know if they came across one. Instead , my sweet friend Ashley organized a group, they all pitched in and the GOT JULY FOR ME! It arrived at my house completely out of the blue on Monday and I'm not going to lie, I cried. It's such an amazing feeling to be the recipient of such an unexpected act of kindness and I can only hope to repay it one day.

So, Ashley, Kelsey, Michelle, Jennie, Deb, Diane, and Jenne, thank you. From the bottom of my heart. <3

Here she is in all her glory. As with all EP's, the formula was great and it was super easy to work with. Try as I might though, I could not capture the subtle pink shimmer in this - it totally elevates it above a standard mint holo. This is two coats and one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. Oh, and excuse the tip wear in the sun photo - yesterday was the first day for sun and I did a massive mail-out at work. :/

Now, it's blogger confession time. I am a horrible, habitual cuticle picker. Normally when I'm swatching they aren't too bad because I apply cuticle oil every time I remove polish. But this week? Yeesh. They are bad and I apologize. What tips do you have for cuticle care?

  1. I drown my cuticles in oil. I keep a small bottle of E&A oil in my purse, and every time I come across it, I apply some. I also apply before I remove any polish and then again after I take pictures of my mani.
