For Audrey

Today was not a good day, I felt depressed all day and I really had to fight with  myself to not paint my nails black or something like that. After all, it was the first day of spring and that called for something bright and cheerful. I had a couple of new nail polishes to try, since I received some nail mail yesterday, and I chose to start with China Glaze For Audrey.

This is my first China Glaze and I'm already in love with the brand, I had full coverage with 1 coat (I still used 2) and the formula was great and smooth. I really loved it! And obviously I had to do something different on my accent nail, you know me, just a plain colour is too boring, so I painted it pink (Andreia #45) and then, using tape, added 2 stripes with For Audrey.
It was also my first time using Seche Vite and I was a bit scared to try it out, I heard a lot about how bad it can cause your polish to shrink and how there is definitely a learning curve when it comes to it. I have to say that I had no problem applying it and I even liked its strong smell.

Here are the pictures, taken under articifial light and no flash:

I'm really loving these 2 colours together, I'm glad I didn't go with black, that would have made me feel even more depressed and I felt so much better after doing my nails, the bright colours cheered me up!


  1. This is so beautiful!!
    Aw, I hope that you feel better soon *huge hugs!!*
    I have depression as well and it is a really sucky thing. If you ever want to talk about anything, please feel free to send me a message. :)

    Thank you! It was just something simple, I didn't even know what I wanted to do at the time and this came out.
    I don't really have depression (I think), but I have some periods of time when I just feel awful and turn completely apathetic. Yesterday was one of those days, after a huge fight with my boyfriend the night before. It comes and goes and today I'm completely, but I really appreciate your kind words and feel free to message me too whenever you need! I'm unemployed and I have lots of time if you feel like talking. Hope you feel better too.

    Eles são caros cá em Portugal. Há umas semanas atrás fiz uma encomenda de um site americano com mais 2 meninas. Os portes lá ficam a $23 por 8 vernizes, elas encomendaram 3 China Glaze e eu pedi um Orly e um Color Club, como fui eu que fiz a encomenda sei que elas pagaram 11,89€ pelos 3 vernizes (portes incluídos). Assim não fica nada caro, mas para fazer uma encomenda destas sozinha já fica um bocado puxado.

    I am unemployed too right now. Any time you want to talk just let me know, and thank you so much for your kind offer!! ^-^ Sorry to hear about the fight; that really sucks. :(

  6. I love For Audrey. It's one of my new favorites!
