NOTD: Nubar Pixie Dust over Glazed Ginger - Camera Fail!

To freshen up my Glazed Ginger mani I added two coats of Nubar Pixie Dust. I try very hard to wear my manis for two days before changing them. I don't do it because i like the colors, but because I don't like it when my coworkers comment that I change nail color all the time! In order to wear a polish for two days, I often freshen it up with a new top coat at the end of day 1.

Ummm yeah. I don't see the sparkles in this picture either! In reality, Pixie Dust consists of a transparent base with varying sizes of silver glitter. Apparently these glitters are EXTREMELY camera shy. Pixie Dust isn't a very dense glitter top coat (I actually don't think it's a top coat...). It's not very awesome, but at least the name is.

I don't care what my coworkers say, I change my nail polish almost daily. They know they better watch out or I might put nail polish remover in their coffee . . . . :P

Nixxy: I know! Hate those bitchy pixies!

Brooke: You are stronger than I am! Yesterday one of my coworker asked me if my nails were fake, and I felt terrible even though I think she meant it as a compliment.

Hey Pixie:

Your hands look great with red polish! (They look really good with other colors as well...)

I usually cheap out on red polish. I got a couple of red ones and most of them is between a dollar or two. They don't really look that bad but because of my habit (since pre-kindergarten) of keep my nail short, they always smudge on my finger tips when I apply...so now I use them on my toes instead...

Anyway, wearing red (or any dark) nail color is a great way to piss off piano teachers though...

Hi Citrine! Thanks for dropping by :) Glad you like it. I think I'm secretly in love with red nail polish.
