31 Day Challenge - Day 18: My Oldest Untried Polish
This color and I go way back. We go so far back, that I owned it when all of my nail polish fit into two 32 ounce cottage cheese containers! Oh, those were the days. I remember going to WalMart and buying this one because I wanted to try something that was different, (read not pink or purple). A lot of good that did me. It has been sitting in my untried pile for two plus years. I really didn't want to use this for this day because, well, because, it's yellow. Yellow and I don't really see eye to eye. You will see why below!
Base coat: Pro FX Fiberized Ridge Filler
Pinky and ring finger: Unzip Me from Pure Ice - 3 coats
Middle and pointer finger: two coats of Unzip me over two coats of White on the Spot from Milani
Top coat: Seche Vite
If I remember one thing for the rest of my life about nail polish, it will be to always wear white under yellow. Look at that huge difference. Had I never learned this and worn Unzip Me all by itself, I would have thrown this polish away!
What is your oldest untried polish, and what is keeping you from wearing it?!
I also am interested in hearing what the most important tip you have gotten about nail polish is!
