Sparkling Garbage over First Timer

I feel like I should apologize for the spazticness (its a real word, I promise!) of my blogging as of late. Between trying to sell my house, car, furniture, packing, and saying goodbye to loved ones it has been absolutely insane around here. We leave bright and early Tuesday morning for NYC. Crazy right?

Anyways, today I have a polish combo that I absolutely love to show you. Again, I'm sorry for the super nubs! But one advantage to the super nubs, is polish has staying power. I'm on day 5 of this mani, and it's seen fishing, 4-wheeling, packing, horses nibbling at my fingers for more treats, and a whole lot more. (Also the pictures were taken on day 5, tell me you aren't impressed!) I'm hoping it'll last till NYC, and then I'll have time to change it.

This is Orly Sparkling Garbage (best name ever?) over Essie First Timer. Sparkling Garbage is a teal jelly base filled with holographic glitters. It works well as a layering polish, over a similar color, but I've heard you can build it up to opacity in 3 coats. I'm going to try that. 

Sparkling Garbage is AH-MAY-ZING!! I can't stop staring at my fingers. Seriously! If you haven't picked this polish up yet, go get it. 

Essie First Timer is a beautiful vibrant minty green. I adore it, it applies wonderfully. I owe you all a swatch. It'll happen. I promise!! 

What is the longest wear time you've gotten out of a mani?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

*all polishes featured in this post were purchased by me

  1. I... REALLY love this mani!!! !

  2. I almost picked up sparkling garbage at Sallys the other day cause it was on clearance...but I put it back. I should have gotten it...damn it.

    Hope your first day in NYC is going well!

    1. Obviously you know this, but the first day went well. ;-) And if you haven't yet, go get this polish. You need it in your life.
