There was no entry yesterday because I was in downtown Detroit serving jury duty, and it was surprisingly draining for a day with tons of down time (none of it really under my control, though). By the time I got home and took care of a few work things, all I wanted to do was veg out, which I did. I was serving again today, but it was a little easier since I didn't have to report quite so early and already knew how to get there and where to park and what places were around for lunch and stuff like that. Which is a long way of saying today there is an entry. Just a short one, though, since I still have to look at some things for work, which didn't stop just because I'm gone.
My nails early last week were glittery, because I can't go too long without it. The glitter in question was one of the Gem Crush from Sally Hansen, Big Money. It's the quiet one in the collection, a cool-toned gold and lilac combination that's what I'd call elegant bling.
Three coats gave me pretty much full coverage. I used one layer of Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat to smooth things out, though Big Money is not an especially chunky glitter; it lays pretty flat on its own.
Unfortunately, I did get some early chipping with this, on about day three. I'm not sure if that's Big Money's fault or if the Quimica strengthener doesn't play nice with it (since those are the only two things different from other glitter manis I've done that have lasted much longer) or if I was just especially clumsy with my hands that week. I'm sure I'll be wearing other Gem Crush before too long so I can do another wear test.
