Guest Post from Thithi of ::pretty::tough::nails::!

As I briefly mentioned in my last post, I'm on vacation in Las Vegas! I left early Thursday morning and won't be back until Sunday. It's a family trip with my mom, grandma, aunt, and my niece. So far it is going great, although it's super hot here (in the 100s!). While I'm here, I also have plans to go to some beauty supply stores to look at some pretty polish. Since I don't have time to post, I have a guest post for you today from Thithi of ::pretty::tough::nails::!

................................................................................................................................................

Hello everybody! I'm Thithi from pretty tough nails and I'm so very honored to be Melissa's guest on her blog. I hope that she's having a fantastic time on her vacation and I can't wait to hear about her trip and see any hauls that she may have(ahem, Island Girl Polish perhaps?).

I wanted to have a fun mani to show you so I decided to go with my favorite color from Maybelline's new Polka Dot collection, called Drops Of Jade. It's a gorgeous shade of jade green that is both bright and creamy, and is jam packed with fun black and white matte glitters in varying sizes. The first coat was very sheer but it built up easily by the third coat. The glitters didn't drag or stick together and spread out evenly on the nail. I do, however, think I would have liked a little bit less glitter because once dry the surface looked really chunky. It also dried to a semi-matte finish and needed a layer of Essence Gel Look Nails followed by a layer of Poshe to even it out.






Don't you love that shade of green? It looks so deliciously squishy, and the glitters add a terrific fun element to the polish. I'm very impressed by Maybelline for putting out a fashion forward milky glitter to the mass market, and I hope to see a lot more from them in the future.  

Again, thank you Melissa for hosting me on your blog today. I really enjoy reading posts and I can't wait to see more posts from you once you get back from your trip!

Thank you Thithi for doing a guest post for me! It's such an awesome one. That polish sure is gorgeous. It kind of makes me think of mint chip ice cream. Go follow Thithi if you haven't already!
