A Lot of First Times Around Here Lately

A few days ago I showed you a double first for me: my first full water marble mani and my first time using a Zoya polish! I'm excited to tell you guys today that I had another first this week: my first time using a Color Club lacquer! (boy is it ever difficult to resist writing the "u" in color..Canadianisms) I chose Masquerading for my debut Color Club mani and it is even more beautiful on the nail! I definitely didn't have anything like this in my stash before.

This is two coats of Masquerading, but if I had been more careful I could've gotten away with only one. You know what this means...good stamping polish! I have no complaints about the application, the formula was really nice, but I do have complaints about the wear. I put this colour on Wednesday evening and this was what it looked like when I went to take pictures on Friday afternoon..major tip wear even though I wrapped my tips. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the fact that I didn't wrap my topcoat on my tips, but I'm not too upset because I wasn't planning on wearing this for a long time!


I know the word "frost" doesn't have such a great reputation in the lacquer-world but I'm glad I ignore bad reputations or I'd be missing out on a lovely colour. Sure, red and pink frosts are getting old but a greeny blue frost is perfectly fine by me. 

Something I feel is worth mentioning is that I have recently been debating if I should retroactively post a few of my older manis, only the ones I'm particularly proud of. On one hand, some of them are really nice and I got a lot of compliments and they'd make a nice addition, but on the other hand a lot of them are from a while ago and I didn't have great skill or application. I think I've decided to suck it up, so I hope you guys enjoy them even though they may not be perfect. Thank you all for reading and I hope you're having a fun and safe Halloweekend! :)
xoxo Nikki
