As I mentioned in a previous post, I had an interview with a school a couple weeks ago and I wanted to do a light/summery manicure and use a polish I haven’t used in a while. I chose MAC’s Silkwig. It was discontinued while I was working for them, so you can’t pick it up any more, but it’s a very dupeable color. It’s a a pale peachy-pink sheer polish with a creamy formula. Even though this bottle is years old, it still applies like a dream and withstood chipping for several days (I’m pretty abusive to my fingernails so this is quite a long time for me).I think this is three coats–I wanted it to lighten my nails, but I wasn’t so worried about the visible nail line, so 3 coats was opaque enough for me! The “flower” design on my thumb was made very easily with a dotting tool I picked up from transdesign.
