Slick Slate, White Cap & Essie Matte About You= BFF's for life!

Another day, I just couldn't let my mani be....lol. So while at Rite Aid,  saw 2 Sally Hansen Insta-Dri's that I didn't own, and I love these for Konading, so I of course had to get them. Plus I'm a sucker for the shroom colors. Well this is Slick Slate, isn't she sooo pretty??? Now, I know there are TONS of dupes out there of this color, but I didn't have one that I could stamp with?!?! I can't wait to try it out.

Okay, well, this is where the boredom started, lol. 2 coats of Slick Slate



Then I added China Glaze White Cap over top. BTW, White Cap was the only one I had any desire to get from that colection.


Then I added Essie Matte About You. What do you think?! I am really liking this!

my little nub is trying sooo hard to blend in with the rest of the group, lol.

  8. Anchors Away really was a disappointing collection. The colors didn't go together at all!

    This is beautiful! I got Matte About You recently and I've been wondering what it's like over shimmery polishes....

  20. I actually really enjoy half of the anchor's away collection, but I didn't have anything else like the colors that I got, I got Pelican Grey, Sea Spray, Sunset Sail, Lighthouse, Ahoy! and White Cap. Some of the color's like below deck and knotty just didn't do it for me at all though. White cap has definetly has become m favorite layering polish though, and I almost didn't even get it!
