This week was a fun one for me, albeit slightly unproductive on the writing front. But we all need a break sometimes, right? That said, within the madness, I found time to do my nails. Because, of course. Haha!




For base coats, I did two coats of Paper Mache, Rollin' in Cashmere, and Gilded Chrome. When that was dry, I got a large dotting tool and added three dots of Gilded Chrome to my pointer finger. 


I'm sad to say that this will be my last mani with Gilded Chrome, as the sparkles have all clumped together to such a degree that it was a nightmare to apply. I added some thinner, which made it sort of better, but I think it's time to just accept the demise of this beautiful, sparkly polish. Should we have a moment of silence and bow our heads? Haha!

Hope you all have an awesome weekend, and here's hoping for a productive next week. Or, at least somewhat productive. Overachiever, I am not. Haha!

RIP GILDED CHROME. You were a sassy minx while you lasted! I love the idea of using the glitter polish for the dots... well played!

Oh no! Is that just happening as a result of age? :(
Thank goodness you have enough sparkle to take the place of that poor, dead, clumptastic polish.

Oh no the sad moment when you have to accept it's the end of a polish's life :( Pretty mani friend!

I just got two Zoya colors like the chrome and cashmere - now all I need is to get my hands on some of that FP Paper Mache - I know you swear by it as a white polish and I've had no luck finding a good one. Where did you find the FingerPaints brand - I haven't seen it yet out and about.
