After getting home from the movies a little while ago, (Stop Loss, starring Ryan Phillipe and Channing Tatum, yum… but more on that later!), I had the irresistible urge to paint my nails gold, so I grabbed Laura Mercier’s Nail Lacquer in 24 Karat, part of Laura’s just-released Gold Digger collection.
As ya’ll know, there are many different shades of gold, and this one looks nothing like the Shu Uemura Gold Beige I painted my nails with a few weeks ago. It’s shinier and yellower than Shu’s shade and contains glittery golden flecks for extra sparkle.
This is only the second brand of high-end nail polish I’ve used, and like the other one, which was Shu’s, it dries much faster than polishes from either Sally Hansen or Revlon. The longer a polish takes to dry, the greater the likelihood that I’ll do something to mess it up.
The nails pictured here took me three coats to achieve. It was my first time using a Laura Mercier nail polish, and I’m hoping the formula doesn’t chip right away. I’ll let ya know if it does.
How was the rest of your weekend? I’m feeling so much better today than I felt yesterday, and part of the reason is all of the kind words from you guys, so thanks homies. 🙂 El Hub did his part to cheer me up by taking me out on a movie date this afternoon.
When I’m feeling blue, nothing (except makeup) can cheer me up quicker than a chick flick can, so El Hub was a little surprised when I said that I wanted to watch Stop Loss. It’s not exactly standard issue chick material, but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, and, um, the Ryan/Channing combo up on the big screen sure didn’t hurt my eyes!
Happy Sunday, friends. I hope you’re having a great evening.
