This polish applied a tad streaky,just a tad. It's still a fabulous shade. I love green polishes.No other issues to report.

And....The Broken Nail...Noooooo!


Just ignore how pathetic and ugly this nail is. It still has nail polish and nail glue on it. I didn't clean it up just because,let's face it..the damn nail is ugly anyway! 2 flipping breaks on one nail,just don't get better than that huh?I'm tempted to just file them down to nothing. As much as I want to blame it on the winter I cant,my kids did it. Yup,this is the result of trying to clam my kids down during a temper tantrum.When will I learn!!! LOL "Keep your distance from kids when they are upset,they are dangerous!! LOL

  9. Such beautiful swatches - I only own one Smokey Mountain polish and I haven't used it yet - I need to get on that. And I feel your pain about the nail break - I have one that is currently being held together by nail glue as well.

  15. Love Delia and Lorelei! Stunning swatches! Sorry about that break...I know how frustrating it is and I keep my nails short...I can't imagine having long nails and dealing with a bad break!

  16. These polishes are all really pretty! I give you props for trying to keep your length with the breaks. Whenever I get a break, I always just give up and file my nails down. I even rounded mine to avoid breaks and yet I still managed to break one today at work...ugh haha!

  19. Definitely feel your pain! Sadly my nails used to get beautifully long until I began blogging. Ironically ever since I've learned good habits, even am quite good at using cuticle oils, base/top coats, non-acetone polish remover, etc, my nails break so much worse than ever. It's a sad feeling being a nail blogger whose nails keep breaking! haha
