A Collection of Mani Monday’s!

Hello again! I was doing a pretty good job of keeping you all updated with my Mani Monday’s but then life took over & I got too busy to post. I even got too busy to change my mani some Monday’s – eek! #firstworldproblems! Here’s a collection of the Mani Monday’s I didn’t post on here, I tried to include how many likes each got just to see which look was most popular. Please follow me on Instagram @missal_leigh if you want the most up to date info on what I’ve got going on! 20140720-161814-58694077.jpg 20140720-161814-58694205.jpg 20140720-161814-58694327.jpg    20140720-161814-58694451.jpg 20140720-161814-58694567.jpg 20140720-161814-58694694.jpg 20140720-161814-58694815.jpg   20140720-161814-58694939.jpg 20140720-161815-58695060.jpg   20140720-161815-58695439.jpg     What do you think?!

This week and possibly next week (depending on how well this polish holds up) is brought to you by Nailuv 12 piece Professional at Home Gel Nail System in the color Rum Cola. Here’s the kit in the box.

I received this kit as a Christmas gift so I’m not sure where it’s from, probably Ulta. I’ve never used anything like this before and it was really fun to use! Yes time consuming, but enjoyable. I think with more practice I could cut down the time. More practice is definitely necessary lol! I can feel parts of my cuticle that I glued to my nails because I wasn’t careful enough with where I put the polish. Although simple, there are quite a few steps involved in this process and I can do a full review or tutorial if requested. I will warn you, be careful of lint/string/thread etc hanging around. It will get stuck in the hardened polish! I’m not sure what the consistency of the polish was like after the first curing session Bc I was too afraid to mess with it, but once the whole process was done these babies were dry and hard as rocks. I love it! I felt totally comfortable using my hands right away. Also, I definitely felt professional using the LED light. This color seemed to pool at the tips but again, with more practice I’ll learn what thickness to spread the polish. Random fact: this stuff smells great! I thought it would smell very heavy with that alcohol/nail polish smell, but it definitely doesn’t 🙂
