Hey guys, been a while since I posted a NOTD. Please excuse my uneven nails and dryness – I got super fed up with breakage about two weeks ago and trimmed all my nails to the quick (in retrospect, a bad idea as they hurt for a day or two afterwards) and I haven’t been moisturizing my hands well enough since I took my hand lotion out of my makeup bag for air travel. I know I said I wouldn’t buy any nail polish until I finished all my planned posts… but Zoya recently had a two free nail polish promotion so I bought the Qtica Intense Lip Repair and I got Happi and Adina from their latest collection. I know it’s kind of cheating, but I’ve had my eye on Happi for a really long time now. I love it too! I tried to color correct to show the brightness, but failed, it’s a tad warmer and a whole lot brighter and more duochrome gold in real life. I was pressed for time so I just did a simple french tip with gold.

Unfortunately, all the housework SO and I did over the weekend left my nails in pretty bad condition before I repolished them. I think I’m going to have to cut them down again (and I think I need to start watching my calcium intake again too) before I can grow them out like they used to be. It’s nothing too bad, but the top layer of a few nails on my right hand keep peeling, and I know it will continually be responsible for broken tips until I can get rid of it completely.
