Neon pastel pink? Is it neon? As close as I can get for over a year old and already worn.
This is a very old polish that I purchased off a blog sale. If I remember right, it was released in late 90's. This is Orly Surreal Satin. In the dreaded macro pic it shows all kinds of brush strokes, but IRL, it is a matte that seems to glow from within. I actually like this, even though it is a frost. Maybe because it is a matte polish and you know how I love me some matte!
Next I added some studs I purchased HERE from Born Pretty. I will have more products from them soon! Check the end of the post for my discount code.
I love these studs because of the size, color and shape. They are not too big and not too small. As an aside, the bump on my thumb is from a failing nail patch which has since given way. Yep, the nubbies have returned!
Unfortunately, because this polish is a matte and I did not want to top coat it, the tops of my studs ended up with little top coat blobs. I use a dotting tool to add a blog of top coat where I want the stud, then it is easy to pick up the stud with whatever top coat is left on the tool. Because I usually top coat my studs to make sure they are secure, I never noticed what a mess using this method leaves on those precious little studs. I guess it is time for a "picker upper" tool!
