Isn't it ironic?

Isn't it ironic how professional most of my manicures have been considering the name of my blog? I have been interviewing a lot lately, but there is a good chance I have something, so hopefully we can get back to our regularly scheduled nails soon!

For a little break from all the boring pinks, here is my mother's least favorite color in my collection. Usually she will say she likes my nails, or thinks a color is pretty or interesting. Whenever I wear this color she tells me continuously how obnoxious it is!

China Glaze Sun Kissed. This is from their 2012 summer neon collection, and it is like a highlighter in a bottle. The formula is surprisingly good for a yellow, this is three coats.

This is one of my favorite looks that I've done, it's pretty and girly, but also has a bit of an edge.

I started with a gazillion hard coats of China Glaze Something Sweet. I love this color but the formula is impossible!

I then added 2 coats of Cover Band Sticks N' Stones, this is a dupe of Lynnderrella's Connect the Dots. I won't put up with her drama for a bottle of nail polish, so I am sure glad that this exists!

Post #1 in my Reddit Arbitrary Day Haul

A wonderful Redditor got me these awesome polishes:

First was Shore Thing. It's a pastal cream, so its application was tricky, but I think the result was totally worth it.

I then added Nicole I Pink I Love Him, for this amazing look. I was originally going to add a stamp, but I loved this so much, I kept it for 2 days!

Kleancolor Blue-Eyed Girl

Sorry for the lack of nail-art lately. I've been shadowing, interviewing, and applying to jobs. My nails have been many shades of light pink. Booooo.

Anyway, here is Kleancolor's Blue-Eyed Girl. This was three coats. I think next time I will do 1 coat of an easy blue and then two coats of this so it doesn't end up with quite so much glitter but is still opaque. Sorry for the lobster fingers.
