Medical Blues Mani
However, being distracted, I wasn't thinking while applying bases.
I put down a coat of Deborah Lippmann Rehydrating base. My psoriatic arthritis is taking a real toll on my nails---in addition to not growing/growing crooked, they are pitted and brittle. Time for some pampering!
But then I realized I wanted to try Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter A Peel (Llarowe). So I put on a coat of that. It dried pretty quickly.
I only applied the DL on my ring fingers, since they were to be my accent nails.
On the rest, I applied "undies" of Sephora's Pantone Universe Reflecting Pond. As undies, one coat was fine.

On my other nails, I applied 2 coats of Femme Fatale's Suspended Starlight. It was a bit thick and hard to fish out the stars and moons (I got a few stars but only one moon). But WOW does this polish light up like the real night sky! I can't stop staring at my hand!!

I topped off those nails with my favorite quick dry topcoat HK Girl. SS still felt a bit bumpy. I tried NPB "glitter food" on one nail but didn't like how it was applying. I think I'll save that for solid glitter bombs. I added a coat of Glitter Gal topcoat tonight and my nails feel pretty smooth (one star is sticking up a bit but it's on one of my wonky nails, so YMMV).
I am interested in seeing how the NPB Glitter A Peel will work--but again, this wasn't exactly jam-packed with glitter (and I've read the Liquid Sand has rather easy removal anyway).
In addition to my nails I have a thing about socks. LOVE THEM. My favorite brands are Little Miss Matched and Betsey Johnson. Usually they make me remove my shoes for the MRI; this time they didn't but I still rocked the socks!

In addition, I finally got a new pair of reading glasses! I saw an ad on Facebook for Coastal.com,--first pair free. Loving a deal (but a bit skeptical)I took a gander. And sure enough I ordered a pair that wound up costing $14 for shipping/handling. I am SO happy with them. They are sturdy without feeling bulky--I adore the color (passion fruit) and the cute little hearts on the ear pieces are a nice touch. Their CS rocked, since I needed help reading my prescription. My order came within days and included an "eyeglass care kit"--a mini bottle of cleansing spray, a soft cloth, and a mini screwdriver, all in a small bag for easy travel.

I'm also sporting my new Pixie haircut which I LOVE SO HARD! It's a bit wonky from lying down in the MRI but I am happy happy happy! It's a piece of cake to care for and oh so cool (It's already in the 80's here in FL--90's next week ACK!)
Edited to add--the NPB Glitter A Peel worked great! And the OPI Liquid Sand *did* stain a tiny bit (that shade of blue tends to stain my nails). But it was rather easy to remove since it's not a glitter.
