Manicure Monday :: Mint Candy





Products Used:

Claire's - Breakfast At Tiffanys | Claire's - Sugar Rush Collection (no name)

Basecoat - Nutra Nail Bullet-Proof Strength Formula | Topcoat - Nutra Nail High Gloss Top Coat

Hi everyone! 

So I'm sure its not just Fatima and I who are obsessing over mint green, right?  I happen to think that this mint green shade by Claire's is probably one of, if not my favourite shade of mint green that I own! I never gave Claire's polish that much credit before, as their formulations were not the best "back in the day". However they're now reformulated, and they aren't chalky at all like they used to be, and they dry very fast (therefore not having to wait as long in between coats). Also, I can officially vouch for the Nutra Nail base coat - I picked this up whilst I was in Seattle, as I had left mine behind. Truth be told, I had only gone for it because it was in a two-pack with the top coat, which I had also left at home. To my surprise, it has left my nails much stronger and able to grow longer without chipping, peeling, etc. 

Have a great week loves!

  1. Wow, I definitely have to try out Claire's nail polish now, I'm always on the lookout for cheap but good brands that I can trust for good results. This is an adorable manicure, my nails always look like crap nowadays cuz I'm too busy/lazy to do a better job :(

    P.S. I need to go on a bag/clothing/everything ban too because I've been way too crazy on the spending lately...

    1. Yes you definitely do! Always look out for their 10 for $10 deals, cus they have some great nail polishes for sale in that section too.

      Haha aww thank you! Its my favourite pass time to do while I'm just watching TV. I've gotten into such a routine now that I really look forward to getting to do my nails, and as odd as this sound, I feel like it makes me want to do work/study when I have pretty looking nails! LOL

      YES, we absolutely do need to have another date soon. Now that Fatima is back in town, we should try to figure out a day/time that works for all of us - although this might be quite tricky!

  3. I just had to go back and say that that's an awesome necklace in the first pic! Where is it from?? Thanks so much for your lovely comments, as soon as I meet up with you guys I'm going to refer you for the advertisement thingy. But first off we three need to get together when we're all free later this month! A shopping date is a must (even though I've been spending like crazy lately... :/ So I will be targeting the sales sections haha)!

    1. You will not believe where that necklace is from... Claire's!! I also wear it backwards if I just want it as an all gold piece. Haha don't even worry, that's where Fatima and I try to head for first! ;)

      Thank you so much for the compliment on the blog! I was messing around with it late last night, and definitely ran into some "OMG what did I just do moments?!", thankfully there are some nice people out there who have awesome how-to guides for the newb bloggers!
