In case you didn't know, I am a graduate student in my second year of a three year program. The third year is an internship year, for which we have just started interviewing. My goal was to find a nice neutral nail that I could wear on these interviews. My issue is that I kind of hate baby pinks and I wanted to try something new. I definitely have a favorite taupe and a favorite "greige"ish, but I wanted something lighter. I started with a french mani using essie Guchi Muchi Puchi- but I HATED it. I don't have any pics because it chipped the morning after I painted them and by that afternoon I had peeled it all off angrily. It was just too baby pink for my taste. So I rummaged through my box of polishes and stumbled across OPI's Moon Over Mumbai, which I purchased who-knows-when and have never worn. I figured "why not, at least it isn't pink" and put it on over the OPI ridge filler base coat.
Fuzzy blankets worn like snuggies make excellent backdrops, right?
I really feel that these photos don't do it justice! I really like it a lot. This is three coats on top of the ridge filler base coat and SV on top. I wish I had done another layer, because I am neurotic about streaks and ridges and I think one more layer would have really done it for me, but I really really do like this.
And of course my dog, Abby had to get in on the picture action. This might end up being a blog feature, considering how in my face she always is, especially when there's a camera involved.
