Nail Files {6/22/12}

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am excited to do my 3rd week of the link up Nail Files with {Vicki} and {Tara}!! I went to f21 and went pretty crazy and bought like 7 different polishes, but at $2.80 can you really feel bad. I sure didn't. Since I was home today I decided to really spend some time on my nails, really cleaning them up, doing the whole cuticle thing, and even learned some cool tricks {thanks to pinterest}. Nothing real fancy just a way to quick dry your nails and I'd say it works pretty well, not perfect, but it'll do until I go to Target and buy this little guy: 


It's supposed to dry your nails within 1-2 mins and it's top coat is anti-chip! Once I get it I will make sure to do a review on it. The trick I learned is after painting your nails to submerge them in ice cold water for a minute or two. Maybe you knew about it, maybe not, try it I think it worked pretty well!! Well anywho, onto my nails...



The Nail Files
So this week I went a little bit darker, but it's still bright enough for summer. I used f21's love & beauty in purple.



I thought it was too plain and boring with just the purple so I did a little bling bling sparkle on my ring finger again with f21's love & beauty in purple/multi sparkle. I'm not sure why in the picture it is coming up on the blue side, but it really is a vibrant purple. I took about 30 pictures and it kept coming up blue-ish so I just said forget it and went with the best pic out of them all. 

What color are you guys wearing this week? Link up!!

  6. Pretty color! I just bought Insta dry this past week myself. It doesnt completely dry them in a minute it just makes them dry to the touch. My manicure has held up great with it though.

    1. Your right, I just actually bought it last night and put it on over this color mainly for the no chip action, but it's pretty good with the drying. Thanks for commenting!!
