NOTW | Orly Sweet Dreams

Tuesday, 28 July 2015

I've never had acrylic nails before mainly because of the fear of them ripping my natural nails off and the fact that my school doesn't even allow light pink nail polish, let alone these talons. One day before I went on holiday (I'm in Morocco now) I decided to take the plunge and finally get my nails done, along with Ambra. The process wasn't too lengthy, around an hour each, including chit chat with the nail artist so it's quite quick. I decided to keep it simple and chose this mauve/taupe colour with lilac shimmer running through by Orly in the shade 'Sweet Dreams'. I prefer more muted, neutral colours, although it's summer, as they look more sophisticated and aren't too out there. The formula of this nail polish is amazing- it was opaque with one coat but to ensure full coverage we done two, it was super shiny even without a topcoat and it has lasted 5 days with no chipping at all!

Have you ever gotten acrylics?

    1. They're really nice to have during the summer, I really like the pointy look I think square nails just make my fingers look stubby! I'm not into bright colours either so I just go for more neutral colours

  13. I was thinking about getting acrylics but instead done some fake nails, I think got to about the fourth nail and hadn't had them on for more than 5 minutes, panicked that I wouldn't be able to get them off, so stopped quickly removed them. I just didn't like the feeling of them on my nails so I don't think acrylics would work well for me.

  14. Those are so beautiful! I've always wanted to try them, but I wear contacts so it would be nearly impossible for me to take them out without jabbing my eyes.

    It sucks that your dress code includes nails, I always like doing some nail art! It's also a great way to start conversations haha.
