    Tags: cuticles

    I’m sitting in the study room listening to people talk about cutting their cuticles and I want to run over to them flailing my arms screaming about how you’re not supposed to do that but I don’t know how well that would go over.

    Probably not well.

    Just so everyone knows, you are not supposed to cut your cuticles. It can lead to nasty things like infections and they also never look as nice as when you push them back.

    Tomorrow I’m volunteering at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Providence, RI walk so I decided to go pink. :)

  4. Because I thoroughly believe that glitter can make almost any mani better, I decided to add some to my most recent water marble. The polish I used is Ooh La Lacquer Matte Romance, which is a clear base with shredded pink and yellow flakies. 

    Flakies are amazing, agreed? Agreed. The thing I like about these is that they’re matte, because most flakies that you see are opalescent or duochromatic or something along those lines. 

    Ooh La Lacquer can be found on EtsyTumblr, and Facebook. If you’d like to make a purchase you can use the code “QuitePolished” for 10% off your order. :)

  5. Favorite toenail colors

    I probably put 2% of the effort that I put towards my nails into how my toes look. For that reason I pretty much wear the same color throughout a whole season, so my favorite colors for each season are

    Spring: China Glaze High Hopes

    Summer: Lex Cosmetics Cayman Cabana

    Fall: Zoya Petra 

    And I’m not sure about winter right now because I have no idea what I wore last year. Probably red. 

    Just in case anyone was wondering. Probably not, but 

     
  6. This was my most successful water marble yet! The three colors I picked at first all worked, I never had to start over on a design, and I never had to redo a nail! 

    The colors I used are Sinful Colors Unicorn, China Glaze High Hopes, and Orly Butterflies.

    Metametics Vine Whip
Vine Whip is a super intense neon green polish with green bar glitter. Pictured is two coats over white. I know I’ve said it before but white is always necessary underneath neons. It just is. Unless you don’t want it to actually look neon. 
But seriously, it looked like my fingers were glowing, this was so bright. It was awesome. 
Metametics can be purchased here. If you have any questions regarding her polish you can find Metametics on Facebook, Tumblr, and of course Etsy.

    Ooh La Lacquer I’m a Matte 4 U over a gradient with Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac and Finger Paints Beach Bum.
I’m a Matte 4 U is a clear based polish filled with matte pink and blue macro glitter. For these nails I used two coats, which gave me a good amount of glitter without being too thick. The formula was nice an I had no application problems. I’m a big fan of matte glitter so overall I really liked this polish. :)

    If you’ve been following me for a while you know that florals scare me and I avoid doing them at all costs. The downside is that I really love florals and wish that I could muster the effort to attempt them more. I found this style the other day, though, and decided to try them out! They’re really easy, just five dots plus another in the center. I love the mint and black combo as well. :)

    Notes: 3

    Just dropped my cleanup brush into my bottle of acetone… 

    I knew this would happen one day.

    Update: Unfortunately the bottle was too tall for me to retrieve the brush with tweezers. I did get it back, but I had to pour out the rest of the acetone. Fortunately there was only about 1/4 of the bottle left and it was pink and opaque, so it was probably time for me to get a new bottle anyways. And all of the paint was stripped from the brush which is really nice. :)
