NOTD: China Glaze Love's A Beach & Nailtini Millionaire

It's been ages since I've done a Nail of the Day post, and I'm pretty sure I only have one other post showing off my nail polish! I figured I'd do another one because I actually like how my nails turned out this time. I think I'm rubbish at painting my nails but usually after a couple days, it starts looking nice. 

I first put down a base coat, then used two coats of China Glaze's Love's A Beach, which is a beautiful neon pink color with a hint of coral to it. When I put on the first coat, I was pretty shocked when it turned out matte. I looked up other reviews online as well, and for some reason the color here looks nothing like the other reviews, so I don't know what's up with that. Anyways, I love how fast this dried. Right after I put on the first coat, it was completely dry. Amazing! I purchased this at Sally Beauty when there was a sale on their nail polishes for buy 2, get one free. 

I felt like doing a little something extra with my nails and added Nailtini's Millionaire on my ring finger as an accent. I got this glittery nail polish in a previous Ipsy bag and I actually really like it! I love all the gold, green and blue glitter pieces in it and I feel that it makes this look pop a bit. I'm not used to doing much with my nails, so this was a bit out of my comfort zone, but I really ended up liking it. Since I wasn't a fan of the matte look with the China Glaze polish, I did use a shiny top coat afterwards that helped a little bit, but my nails do still look matte. 

Hope you guys like this look!

  1. I really like how bright that nail polish is! And I love the glittery accent nail! I wonder why it turned out matte though. It seems like a lot of neon nail polishes have that issue

    1. It's really weird. I have other neon polishes that I haven't tried yet, but now I'm curious to see if they'll be matte as well.

      Thank you for your nice comment! :)
