Sorry for the gruesome "before" picture, but this is what I was dealing with after three months of packing and two weeks of moving. I didn't think there was any reason to move my polish, after all, these things would never grow back and be pretty again, would they? Well, after eight weeks, I am happy to report I've got a bit of free edge on all but one nail now and my cuticles have stopped bleeding! Hurrah for small victories!
My first foray was last weekend when my daughter Grace got married. That's the pale gray and glitter number, Priti Silver Birch accented with RUS polish in SN 01 (yeah sexy name for holo silver glitter) I followed that with LVX Azzurum, risking Smurf hands for a glorious navy cream. Heavily oiled cuticles before removal helped a bunch with that! And today brings us to Zoya Spencer, from the Naturel Deux collection. I'm not normally a nude fan, but these colors are deeper and creamier than their first collection. Spencer is the palest of the browns, a warm mocha color that's opaque in two thin coats. I have learned from experience, that Zoya really really does wear best with her own base and topcoats.
