I've got a couple new manicures to share...why? Why not! I found an image online that I really loved, so I used her idea, but changed up the colors a bit.
Colors used on this manicure: "Bachelorette Bash", "Tart Deco", and "Fear or Desire" by ESSIE; "Snow Me White" by Sinful Colors; "Mellow Yellow" by Sally Hansen; and for the small leaves I used "Green with Envy" by Sally Hansen.

I've been asked to share the general products I'm using for my nails, so here's a list for those of you who are interested:
I've found that with this combination of base coat and top coat, I can really wear any polish brand in between the two, and it lasts great! No chipping, and the polish keeps a nice shine all week. Last week I skipped the Chip Skip, and didn't have any issues with chipping, so I would say that item might just be optional.
Apply to nails in the following order:
1: Chip Skip (a light cleanser that cleans oils off nail beds, not really a "polish")
2: CND Stickey Base Coat (provides a nice, sticky base coat for polish to cling to)
3: POLISH OF YOUR CHOICE!
4: Seche Vite (a thick, quick drying, very shiny top coat -- I LOVE it!)
