There’s a little epilogue to my tale of sadness
I was dragged down the street by His Royal Dadness
How long has it been that you’ve even thought of Bart Simpson’s “Deep, Deep Trouble”? Maybe not long enough for some of you, but ever since I thought of this title, that line has been running through my mind. So I thought I’d share:
Usually I don’t write about polishes I’m currently wearing so that I can give more of a full review – bumper-to-bumper, as it were. But I was so excited to share Nova with you, I just didn’t want to wait!
Well, today I had a little strip of the polish pull right off one of one of my nails, so the whole mani had to go. (Truth be told, though, I had another, better reason for removing this today, that I’ll tell you about tomorrow :)
Anyway, as Mary had warned me in a comment from the last post, this was less than a joy to remove. beautyjudy was right, I wish I had felt to take it off with. Unfortunately, I only had cotton squares. You know what my nails looked like after nearly a half-hour?
Granted, that time was spent on both hands. But that was using pure acetone, which works really fast with regular polish. It never takes more than two squares, and often only one. Not this time; I think the last stand was taken with piece number four. It was a valiant battle, to be sure.
I even had to take some acetone to the back of the nail (see my middle nail?), meaning I would have to reapply my Breathe Life. That’s okay, it needs to be refreshed from time to time, anyway. (In case you’re curios, you can see what a single layer of it looks like on my ring finger, above.
So, these super glitters are great fun to wear, but they aren’t a whole lot of fun to take off. In my personal opinion, though, they are totally worth it.
