NFU 048

This is 3 coats... If only my nails were not stained I would wear this out!

This is one coat over black. I prefer this over NFU 49. The glitter adds a while new dimension to the polish. It reminds me of the finish of KOH Blue Universe, This might be as close as I will ever get to that dream polish...

Revlon Sunshine Sparkle

3 coats, This was less of a nightmare than I was expecting.

Hurricane Irene came and went, and thankfully she didn't do as much damage as was expected!
I slept during the worse of the storm, as it arrived overnight, It is still windy at the moment but at least we are drying off. Our usual average rainfall for August in NYC is 4.22 inches, and this month we had 13.26 inches. UNPRECEDENTED! But we are forecasted to be dry for the rest of the month!
Public Transportation is still not back up, there was a lot of flooding in many train station. We don't know when the system will be back in operation. We got off easy!
It has been a very odd week, he had aftershocks from a earthquake AND a hurricane =O
I think Mother Nature had a lapse in her memory...
She forgot that we are not supposed to get either of these!

2 coats... what a streaky mess!
