Not Much Of A St. Patrick's Mani-But I Tried

Last week, I was parked near the beach and wanted some fun nails to wear. I chose these Zebra print French tip nails from my shoebox-o-goodies.
These nails are from the Broadway Fashion Express line, called "Scandalous." Ha! Love it!
They are medium length but really long on me. I jabbed a couple ends into things accidentally, and man, did that hurt!

The nail bed is beige but with the pink gel nail glue underneath, they have a pink tint.
 I added 2 coats of Confetti Dreamdate on the nail beds.

Well, these were fun for about 4 days and then I got bored. 
So I clipped off the zebra tips and got this look...
And this is a really pretty look for the office. 

Eventually, I wanted to try some bold color. 
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure "Fairy Teal." (One coat)

This is one coat of Spoiled "Trust Fund Baby". The multiglitter is so pretty in the bottle. 
The brush and formula are a nightmare though.
The brush loses bristles, and the glitter glumps on the brush.
Here is 2 coats and was so difficult to capture on camera.

Now I'm ready for a St Patrick's Day party...mostly.

Have a good weekend everyone, and thanks for reading my blog post!

Kiss Everlasting Pearl French Tip Real Short Length Nails Review

I was so excited when I found these at CVS!
I could not find these in the real short length before. So when I saw them, I had to snatch them right up! Of course, getting $3 ECBs back from CVS was nice too.

These pearl French tips come in medium size as well. The Real Short Length number is 55360/EF09. The kit comes with pink gel nail glue, a cuticle stick, and emery board. I used the nail glue in the kit.

The nail base is opaque, not clear. so that with the pink gel nail glue under it, 
my short nail edge is not so visible in natural light.
I really like the "real short length," and square tips. The pearl tips have a shimmer to them. 
The difference with Everlasting French Pearl is that Pearl is not a bright white compared to their other Everlasting French full cover nails. The Pearl has a more subtle look to it.***
 As you can see, the "real short length" still pops up over my fingers' edges. 
If you have long nail beds, you might want to choose medium length.
3 of my favorite things:
  1. Journal
  2. Starbucks travel mug (got free refills all during the month of January!)
  3. A new pack of Kiss nails
I never thought we'd be going into our 3rd month (THREE!) of hotel living. And that buying a place to live would be so difficult. The stories I could tell you...
It's these familiar things that give me comfort.

Have you tried Kiss nails with pearl French tips? Do you like them more, less or equal to the white French tips?
