As planned with my previous nail entry, I tried on China Glaze's Something Sweet - from the Up & Away collection.
It's a really pretty baby pink in the bottle and I had reservations about this color primarily because it's such a light pastel pink. I have this mindset that pink doesn't look or work as well on my skintone compared to alot of other colors.
Though surprisingly I thought the color worked well with my skintone and I really liked how it looked on, even if it was a tad cool-toned.
This was with 2 coats of nail polish - a really thin first layer with a slightly thicker 2nd layer. The flash washes it out a little, the pink shows up a bit more in person.
Don't mind the messy painting. I am currently trying to paint without getting polish on the cuticles. In the past I would just slap it on and go. Now though I want to try and paint it as neat as as I can so it looks good immediately without me having to clean it up.
Any tips on how painting nails without getting it on the cuticles and all?
I read some tips about putting the brush a little farther from the cuticles, push it back a little before sliding it across the nail (does that make sense?) - which was what I tried with this application hence, clean cuticles! Though I'm trying to perfect it a lot more. Any other tips that you ladies might have? I know there are tons of nail pros on here! Lol.
I'm not sure what color I should try on next. What color do you think (from the nail polish haulage) I should paint my nails with next?
Thanks for reading!
