Hey guys, Duana here! It has been sooo long since I posted! I’ve been busy graduating and stuff. And everyone knows what happens after graduation: the dreaded job search. UGH!
After sending out what seemed to be around 1 million resumes and applying for 15,000 positions, I got a call back from a company in my target region. I got an interview!! Naturally I went on a quest to find the perfect interview pinky-neutral, one that was subtly appropriate, but still packed a punch and made a nice statement.
I came across Zoya’s “Laurie”, a sheer pink that was like a palate cleanser to my usual neon-hued nails. I loved it! For my pedicure, I went a little bolder with OPI’s “Pink Flamenco”. I love the color combination!

P.S. I got the job! The manicure was the clincher, I’m sure of it!! lol…
Hey Guys!! It’s Duana again!
Although New York has been experiencing some wonderful weather, I’m SO tired of winter and in need of a change from my darker fall/winter manicure colors. To me, summertime means I can paint my fingers and toes with brightest polish I can find, and I LOVE IT!! When I went into my regular nail salon, I realized that they had begun to expand their summer section (during winter months, they pack up most of the bright colors), and I immediately got excited when I saw “Need Sunglasses?” by OPI. I just LOVE a bright yellow nail! One thing about this polish is that it goes on very thin. I got these results with three coats.

Don’t judge my cuticles y’all…She hadn’t cleaned them yet. I had to snap the picture while she went to process my payment…lol 🙂

I’m Duana, first time blogger, long time subscriber. I was introduced to Cheryl and her blog through the wonderful world of Twitter and have since fell in love with her nail art! But, enough about me, let’s talk polish.
I find myself picky in most aspects of life, and my nail polish is no different. A few years back, I tried the perfect red at my local nail salon; it was in OPI’s Christmas collection and I have been searching for it ever since. None of the polishes I pick have ever come close, and it seems as if the perfect shade of red is about as elusive as a unicorn…hence, my red blues.
One day, as I was walking through my local Target, I stopped in the nail care section (as I often do) and found “Forever Yummy” by Essie. It was beautiful in the bottle, but made a bunch of promises that it didn’t keep. I needed it to be a little brighter, like a true red/scarlet and not crimson. It looks nice on my hands, but the red is a little too deep for me. Check it out…

It looks brighter in this picture than it actually is. I think it was the bright lights at the nail salon.
This is how it actually looks…pretty, but not what I wanted.
