The Baker Street Mix

Hey everyone!

It is no secret that I love blue nail polish - I am positive I have shared that fun fact many a-times.. (you know.. how green (any shade, ever) is my favourite colour, but in the nail polish world, I cannot turn down a blue!) that is still how it goes - BUT - I think Nails Inc. Baker Street is my favourite blue polish: 1. It is blue and 2. It is called Baker Street - hello?! Sherlock Holmes reference.. genius! I rest my case.

I came across this gem PHOTO via pinterest awhile back.. and thought that it would be a perfect recreation so I could bust out Baker Street.. and then I was like.. why not use some of my other top fave polishes?! Swell!


And these beauties were born. I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament (phew - I wrote it without using 'u'.. that was unbelievably difficult, lemme tell ya..)
  • Nails Inc. Baker Street
  • Dotting Tool
  • Poshe Top Coat

I switched up my top coat this time - I was having trouble with same-day chipping while using my beloved Seche Vite - I am hoping it is just a bad bottle or something.. I have never had a problem with it before. This combo of base and top coat gave me zero chipping - I wore these for five days before I even started to have tip wear. Good times!

I will see you all again real soon with another fun recreation - I already have it picked out.. but I am having an internal debate. I have work in a few hours, and I have naked nails.. but there is a wealth of cleaning I want to do after work.. so it doesn't make sense to polish my nails now.. but I hate having naked nails. Sigh. The dilemmas we must face..
