Essie She's Picture Perfect is one of my favorite summer colors. It's the perfect lavender with a subtle shimmer and I knew As Gold As It Gets would be a great topper. The flakies in Vaudeville are more of a greenish iridescent and AGAIG is definitely pure gold, but I think it works. Duped or not, I just love this look.
What do you think? Have you tried to dupe any polishes that you've seen swatches of? If so, was it successful? Let me know!
Ok, I also have a quick nail polish Public Service Announcement for you all.
***ATTENTION WORLD. IF YOU BREAK ONE NAIL, YOU MUST FILE ALL NAILS DOWN TO MATCH IT. IT IS UNACCEPTABLE TO HAVE 7 LONG NAILS AND 3 SHORT NAILS. MATCH THEM UP, PEOPLE. THIS HAS BEEN A MESSAGE FROM THE EMERGENCY NAIL POLISH JUDGEMENT COMMITTEE. OVER.***
I broke my pointer and middle fingers last week and while I was tempted to leave all my long nails, I realized that this can not happen. It looks weird and unkempt. Yes, I'm saying it. Short nails are better than ragged nails. Here are some pics to help you understand how I fixed this tragedy with a wonderful Tweezerman file. Did you know Tweezerman made nail products? They do and they are awesome. Check out Anna's post here.
|Unacceptable! 2 claws and 2 nubs don't mix.|

Happy (Faux) Fancy Friday! What do you have on your nails for the weekend?
