Periwinkle Puke


I was going for an Easter egg type vibe, but I ended up with periwinkle puke.

I was chatting with Rachel the other day and she was all excited about her new periwinkle polish – so I thought I would try my periwinkle polish – Nails Inc. “Princes Palace”. I used two coats over Sinful Colors Base Coat. It’s a decent formula – streaky on the first coat, but smooth with two. So far, so good.

But then I decided to spruce it up with Sinful Colors “Baila Baila”. Still, not too bad…until I decided to top it with Zoya Matte Velvet Top Coat. That didn’t go so well – I guess the periwinkle was too thick, because a few of the edges wouldn’t dry underneath. Zoya Matte usually dries within minutes – but not this time. I dinged it a few times before bed, but I was able to mash it flat. I was horrified to wake up the next morning with imprints of my sheets on the top of my nails….yup, periwinkle puke.

I struggled with posting this mishap – but I figured I must share the fails as well as the wins.
