Nail Files #9

The Nail Files

I've been using a lot of really dark colors lately and they are semi-staining my nails. So this week I wanted something light and fun! I used one of the pretty colors I got from Courtney for the Valentine's Day Swap. It's my first Sinful Colors polish too. Also I'm not sure why, but my nails seem to be flaking a lot, so I also used Essie Rock Solid for my base coat.

This Sinful Colors polish is called Purple Diamond, it's probably meant to go over a solid color, but I didn't feel like that this week. It ended up being a pretty sheer purpley glitter! The picture below is just one coat..I did another coat later.

I also wanted to share some nail stuff I found on Pinterest.

Nautical Nails!
