Today's mani and pedi made me feel in a festive mood. Both make great holiday colors.
I get the feeling that when most people see me they think of someone mind-mannered, middle of the road and 'safe.' I only appear that way because some of the places I work don't like that (you fill in that alternative) look.
So over the years I have found ways that I can push the envelope. One of those ways is with nail polish colors. I can keep my nails rather short, if need be, but not stubby. But if there is no rule on the colors, I go for it!
I got a fair amount of practice with 'Zombie' because I used at least 4 coats. I had some serious bald spots that needed work. I used a base, then Seche Clear, tons of coats of color, 2 Seche Clears then topped off with China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat. After all that, my nails are not terribly gritty. I am not looking forward to removal though. So I'm going to wear this another day.
Here's another color for the holidays I picked for the toes...
'Rockin' Rocket' only needed one good coat. I used 2 just to make sure. Orly works splendidly. Color ends up true to what you see in the bottle. Nothing negative with this one. Mrs. Claus has this pedi color for when her man gets home from work!!!!
If you are not in the food or medical industry, do you have nail polish restrictions? And, if you feel your work dress code is strict, do you push the envelope and, how?
