Feeling Awesome/Silly?

Happy Friday everyone! This week has seriously flown by, and I'm NOT complaining! So, in honor of how great fast weeks are I decided to wear Claire's Mood Polish in Awesome/Silly. It's a pink/light pink polish that has a hint of a shimmer (I couldn't capture it though). It's a bit sheer, so this is 3 medium coats +1 SV. Ready for the picture overload??

I'm sitting at my desk with naked nails wondering....what went wrong? I was so excited about this color, and it failed me BIG TIME! At least I took pictures of it before it chipped like crazy on me. Boo hooo!! I'm sure it was the fact that I had to apply SO MANY COATS to get it completely opaque and not streaky, 1 coat of base coat, 1 of Nail Armor, and 1 of SV...that's 6 coats of nail polish! I don't know how some of you ladies manage to pull off manis with that many coats. Hat off to ya'll!!

I applied this around 9pm last night, took pics, then went to sleep. I woke up this morning, took a shower, and by the time I was walking out of my house at 6 a.m. I already had a chip on my thumb! By 8 a.m. I had about 3...WTF!?!?!

I guess I will be naked for the rest of the day...Oh yeahhh!! ;) I plan to go home...take a nap with Bells...and try it all over again. I have to rock a full mani that will last me all weekend. I'm hanging out with the BFFs tomorrow night and going to see my parents on Sunday. They've been away on vacation for 3 weeks, I miss them like crazy!!!!

What are you plans for the weekend?


  1. Ahhhhh! That is so awesome! I love both of the pinks it turns!

    Your nails are making amazing progress :D

  2. Thanks!!! I'm tempted to file them down, but I'm curious to see just how long I can get them without them breaking or getting all disfigured and lopsided. Ahhhh!!!

  3. I love the mood polishes! Too bad it went chip crazy :(

  4. that sucks that the formula stinks cuz I'm loving the color and how it changed...
