Rainbows + Hawaii

I’m in the airport about to go to Hawaii for a conference. I’m so excited. The high temperatures the whole weekend are in the 80s and the lows are in the 70s. I’m going to find time to hit the beach and maybe even come back with a tan (or a sunburn more likely).

This manicure was pretty simple and quick, but I liked how it turned out. The base is Lime Crime Lavendairy from the Desserts d’Antoinette collection. I love these colors and they are nice and opaque. They always end up looking kind of bad around my cuticles, but I think this is mostly operator error and because of how light the colors are. They dry fast and apply evenly, so I’m a fan. The rainbow is done with Migi nail art pens, which I love and have been raving about. These colors are from the neon collection.

At the hospital, I was in the middle of presenting my patient to my attending physician and he interrupted me and said “I love your nails!” It was hilarious because he’s a stoic guy. I’ll take that as a compliment.

    So pretty and your nails are the perfect length. What do think about Lime Crime polish? I’ve never tried it.

    Thanks! I’ve been working on growing them out, and I’m happy with the ring and pointer finger, but I think I’m too rough on the other nails because they keep chipping at the edges. I got the whole set of the Lime Crime polishes because the colors are so original, and I’ve only tried about half of them. My experience with other similar colors has been bad because they end up chalky, but these apply surprisingly well. The first coat is a little streaky, but the second coat evens it out perfectly. And plus, I really like the packaging.
