I have had an extremely long week. I have been working overtime, and a few things have been suffering. Firstly, my Ella still has short sleeve caps. I wanted to fix it today, but I had to attend to another more pressing matter. My fingernails!!! EEEKKKK! The polish was chipping off terribly, and the hangnail hooked onto the yarn when I knit. So, it was about time that I gave them some TLC.
I went to Duane Reade's website and saw that Essie came out with a new line called Luxe Effects. All of the colors have a pop of shimmer or glitter, and can be used with other polishes to make really pretty effects. I saw that they paired a pearlescent shimmer polish with a white base coat. So, here is my take on it.
I used O.P.I.'s "A-ha Moment" to paint the tips of my nails.
Then I used 2 coats of "Elle's Pearls by OPI" as the main color.
After that, I applied Essie's "Shine of the Times" over each nail, for extra shimmer.
Here is the complete look. I love it.

Here is a closer look at the Luxe effect.
Don't worry. Tomorrow, there will be knitting. I just received some new yarn for a totally new project. I will tell you all about it soon. And yes, of course there's PINK!
