NOTD 11/25/12: Lynnderella Connect the Dots & Essie Butler Please

Happy Sunday, everyone. I'm back at school after Thanksgiving break and decided to kick off the week with a new mani. Here is the famous Lynnderella Connect the Dots over Essie Butler Please.

Two coats Essie, one coat Lynnderella, plus two coats top coat. Flash.
No flash (more color accurate).

Not much to say, I'm feeling lazy. I love both of these polishes, end of story. 

See a kitty picture

NOTD 11/23/12: Essie Leading Lady

Hello! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Black Friday. This morning was the first time I ever went early Black Friday shopping (well, 7 am was early to me) and it was amazing. I just went to the mall, got so many good deals- no shit- and had a ton of fun. I'll definitely go back next year and every year until I die.

There is actually a manicure I've done and taken pics of between this one and the last one I posted but I'm lazy so I'll just post that one later. And, because it is now officially the Christmas season, I wanted to post Christmas-y nails. Here is Essie Leading Lady.

Two coats plus top coat. Flash.

Leading Lady is a red jelly polish with small red glitter suspended through it. It was easy to work with, a little gloopy but that was expected, and opaque in two coats. I also only put one coat of Seche Vite over it and it was relatively smooth. 

And because I'm home, here is a pic of Bela looking pissed off...

NOTD 11/14/12: Deborah Lippmann Almost Paradise

Hello! Nothing special today, just a regular mani in a pretty color. This is Deborah Lippmann Almost Paradise from the Footloose duos last year.

Three coats plus top coat. Flash.
Fun fact: my nails match my dorm walls.

I really love this color, it's obnoxious and muted at the same time and it has a great formula. I actually wore it on Christmas last year under China Glaze Party Hearty. 

On a side note, I've been having a lot of cuticle/hangnail emergencies lately. I apologize for the poor retouching on my pinky finger, but I can promise you it's better than looking my booboo right in the face.

Have a magical day and thanks for reading,
