The Supernova Blue Me Away

You see what I did there? Probably not yet.

So, after a nail polish hiatus (on the blog and IRL), I decided to hop back on to my regular nail upkeep. I used “Blue Me Away” by Sally Hansen, one of the first colors in my nail collection when I restarted it as a senior in high school. It’s my favorite shade of turquoise! The glitter is “Supernova” by American Apparel, which you’ve seen before over here. I love that the blue glitter pieces are almost the same shade as the blue nail polish. I’d say the polishes in this duo are very complimentary to each other.

It’s always when I take photo that I realize how terrible of a job I did, or how gnarled my cuticles are. I think it’s about time I legit get my nails done, haha.

Love this! Your nail posts are always awesome, and I’m kind of envious of your nails, really. I haven’t experimented too much with fun top coats, but I love this one! And I don’t think I’ve ever tried that polish of Sally’s, I’ll have to take a look the next time I’m out. (Incidentally, do you have any recs for base and/or top coats? My nail polish never stays on more than a couple of days unless I keep my nails super short. It’s a little boring!)

Thanks Casee! I’m always wishing I had longer nail beds, but overall, I’m happy enough with my nails to want to blog about them (my toes….a whole other story…hahaha). I think you have gorgeous nails! I’d love to see more of them around :) This Sally Hansen nail polish is actually probably some of the best quality that I own. It’s really durable and nicely priced @ $3.50 or so per bottle at CVS. Essie’s Luxeffect line has some really nice quality “fun” top coats if you wanna give it a try! As for my regular topcoat, I’ve been using Sally Hansen Double Duty. With this mani, I experimented with an Essie 3-in-1 (base/top coat/strengthener) for the first time and love it. My topcoat is ALWAYS Seche Vite, as it does wonders to dry nails fast. It isn’t 3-Free though, so be weary of that. I’m no pro, but I love these 3 things!
