Nails of the Week #40: Peach & Metallic

Hooray my nails are no longer naked! This has been the longest time I've had naked nails, 3 weeks, so I'm happy they are finally strong enough to use polish on them. I wanted to go for something simple yet fun and a little summery since despite the chilly weather lately I'm definitely thinking towards brighter days. As usual this is not the cleanest, there really has to be a trick to nail tape that I'm just clearly missing out on. I always manage to get some polish that sneaks under the tape, and I'm starting to think I could do a cleaner job just free-handing it! Maybe that's something I need to experiment with.

So this nice peach is China Glaze in Peachy Keen. Not the best polish ever, it was hard to get an even coat and if you look closely it actually looks quite awful. Thankfully the top coat took out the worst of it but still not my best work. The silver stripes is my trusty butter London in Bobby Dazzler. Seriously the best silver polish ever and it's one I will keep using time and time again. I love this manicure, it's simple yet chic with the fun accent nail that isn't too busy. I'd love to try this again using different colors sometime so I can work on my nail tape skills!
