The Nail Files

It's Friday! Linking up with Tara and Vicki for the Nail Files. Today I'm sharing mine and Chloe's nails. We are decked out in red, white and blue for Independence Day!!

Here are Chloe's nails. 

These are mine :)

I used all the same polish on our nails. A generic white polish as the base. I need to get a better one. Any recommendations? The red is Finger Paints (striper) in Restoration Red. I love the color, a perfect match to my China Glaze Ruby Pumps (on my toes!). I hate the consistency and the brush. The polish was clumpy and difficult to work with. The brush... small pieces sticking out of the tip that made it difficult to apply an even line. The blue polish is Blue It from Sally Hansen. Ugh. I love the color but this formula has not aged well either. It's has to be a case of "you get what you pay for"? Usually a good top coat helps that. Usually Good to Go by Essie saves my polishes. I am out. Boo...

This weekend we are going on a mini-vaca to Frankenmuth, Michigan. Can't wait to try the fried chicken at the Bavarian Inn. It'll be nice to get away. There won't be any relaxing. Four kids and a pool = overtime.

Have a great weekend!
