I thought I'd try doing square nail tips this time and though it took a little getting used to, I think I like them this way!

OPI MPJ Holo is a much sought, very hard to find polish. I have seen it priced over a hundred usd on ebay. I stumbled on mine at a local beauty supply, got both bottles they had in stock. Yay for unexpected finds!

Savvy Femme Couture - Green with Envy

Via Flickr:
I added this green foil over my existing mani on Thursday night, and dubbed it Funky Friday the following day at work.
It was fun and spruced up my mani a little. As you can see, I had some tip wear from the base color, but other than that, it wore like iron!
I haven't decided whether I'm going to do a funky friday each week or not. We'll see!
