[NOTD] Orly Gumdrop

I love to wear turquoise and aqua nail polishes in the summer.  I think turquoise complements most of my summer wardrobe.  Below, I'm wearing Orly Gumdrop, a light blue-green polish.  I think it leans more blue than green.  It lasted me four days before wearing or chipping, but on that forth night, it started chipping off in chunks.

I wore two coats of Gumdrop with the Zoya Anchor basecoat and New York Grand Central Station topcoat.

[NOTD] Zoya Tosca

To commemorate the first day of summer today, I wore a fiery red nail polish, Zoya Tosca.  Tosca is a pink-leaning red with a flash of orange shimmers.

As always, I wore one coat of Orly Bonder then two coats of Tosca, topped with one coat of New York Color Grand Central Station.

[NOTD] Sinful Colors Cinderella

Sinful Colors Cinderella is a sky blue polish with iridescent pink glitter.  The sparkles transform this ho-hum polish into something special.  I bought this for only a dollar, but it is still a deal at its full retail price ($2).  I found this at my local Walgreens.

I apologize for this slightly blurry picture, but it still captures Cinderella's true color and sparkles.

I wore one coat of Orly Bonder for my basecoat and one coat of New York Color Grand Central Station for my topcoat.

[NOTD] Essie Splash of Grenadine

Essie Splash of Grenadine is one of my favorite nail polishes to wear in the summertime.  It is a bright medium-tone plum pink.  It looks great in two coats, and its consistency is a cross between a cream and a jelly.  It is shown below as two coats over Orly Bonder and topped with New York Color Grand Central Station.
