Two NOTD Last night and tonight

I decided last minute last night to do a NOTD (nail of the day) and originally I was just going to do a boring one color mani.  I had been wanting to try China Glaze's Blue Bells Ring since I bought it.  Honestly, it got shoved to the back of my collection and I had forgotten about it.  And something made me thing about it last night, and I had to use it.

How did this amazing, bright, fabulous color come out of this bottle!?  It definitely had my fooled.  I thought this would be more subdued.  More of a steel blue than a bright, almost cerulean blue.  It's gorgeous!  And this is one coat!  And I topped it with NYC's matte top coat.

And then I got antsy.  I have such a hard time leaving colors nail art free on my nails!!  I just can't do it.  So I busted out my scotch tape and stripping tape.  I did an angled tip with Orly Sea Gurl, and stripped underneath with a light metallic pink stripping tape.

I left this one matte too.  I love matte polish and top coats, but I'm sooo used to Seche and how it dries in a minute.  It's made me so spoiled.  Some might say even more spoiled, thanks Hubs :)

Tonight I stayed pretty basic.  I did three coats of Orly Green with Envy, a beautiful and shiny teal jelly polish.  I did three coats (since it is a jelly-and they are notoriously thin) and a coat of Seche.  Even though I have been having issues with seche lately, you CAN NOT beat the shine it gives. It's hard to beat.

And to finish off my quick NOTD today, I added 2 coats of Shine on Crazy Diamond by Orly, which is a perfect silver holo glitter.

I think this is my new favorite color (of the day).

Tomorrow look for a guest post from one of my best friends, where she swatches some of the polishes she's purchased lately.  And can I just say I am incredibly jealous of her right now.  She found Orly's Hope and Freedom Fest at her Sallys already, and she's currently in possession of Coachella Dweller. Wah!
