Even with huge work deadlines hanging over my head, I’m not afraid to procrastinate. Procrastination? I say bring it! Last night, when I should have either been sleeping or working on my project for work, I was painting my nails.
I’m on a Shu Uemura nail polish kick, and last night’s midnight manicure in Gold Beige may not have been the best use of time. Eh, who am I kidding?? Of course it was! I officially love these polishes and can’t wait to get more. Gold Beige dries fast, applies easily and looks great.
I actually did my Gold Beige midnight manicure sitting in front of the computer. I’d apply a layer of polish, type one-handed for five minutes, do the other hand and then repeat. Each layer dried quickly, but not too quickly. And I love the consistency, which isn’t runny at all. I stopped after applying three layers, which seemed to be enough to really make the golden-peach shine.
Not to pick nits, but in a perfect world, there are a couple things I would change about this polish: the finish could use a little more shine, and I do wish it were a bit cheaper.
Besides those two little issues, this color rocks! I plan to apply a protective top coat of Seche Vite when I get home from work tonight. That should ratchet up the shine factor!
I plan to wear this shade throughout the spring and summer.
In other news, thank goodness for concealer because today I look like a zombie, LOL! I stayed up way too late last night, furiously typing ’til the wee hours of the mornin’, and now I feel tow up from the flo’ up. Seriously, it’s frightening. I gotta hang on ’til Thursday. Gotta hang on ’til Thursday. That’s when I turn in my project for work.
Whatever you’re up to today, I hope you’re staying positive. If you keep on truckin’, then I will too.
