NOTM: Misa Dirty, Sexy Money & Sinful Colors Nail Junkie

Hi all! I'm back from my trip away and boy was it a doozie. It wasn't really a vacay per se. We went down to VA to spend some time with my brother before he moved to IL. The four of us plus the dog were living in a tiny hotel room, where one of the beds was a sofa bed (guess which one I got). Then the power went out on Thursday and we were staying on the 7th floor! The stairwell was dark and stuffy and I thought I was going to pass out on my way up. What an experience! I did get to spend some time at the National Zoo with my pandas though which was definitely the highlight of it all. :p

Anyhoo, my purple mani held up pretty well and I only took it off on Saturday. I'm in a glitter mood right now so this is what I have on now:

I have to say that the color in the pictures is not accurate. It looks more blue in the pictures but it's definitely green with just a hint of blue in real life. I only put on one coat of Dirty, Sexy Money and it was pretty opaque at that point. Then I layered on 2-3 coats of Nail Junkie, which is a green version of Hottie. Like Hottie, it's very sheer on it's own. I did have to use 2 coats of my top coat to even everything out. I'm loving how this looks!

Ta-ta for now!
