Nfu Oh 60

Nfu Oh #60 (1 coat black creme, 2 coats #60)

What a great rainbow of flakie goodness! Since I've heard #60 is a little sheer, I decided to put one coat of a plain black creme (I just used a mini polish I got from Color Club) under 2 coats of Nfu Oh #60. The flakes reflect many different colors such as red, orange, gold, yellow, and green. I just love it! The application was a bit runny, but overall not too bad.

In other nail news, I found out a few days ago that Essie was bought out by L'Oreal. Interesting. Is this going to be good or bad for consumers? Time will only tell. I noticed that over the past couple months Essie has cracked down on online retailers that sell their polishes at a lower price (I think the minimum price to pay now is $8). I honestly don't think I'll be getting many more Essie polishes at this price...not that I had many to begin with. Sure, I'll get the couple that are unique, but I'll pass on the other $8 polishes. What does everyone think about this? 

Hmm, what to tell you guys about myself today? I guess I'll make it nail related. So my thumb nails break off so that I have absolutely no free edge. This happens all the time. Stupid scientific manufacturing companies make microcentrifuge tubes that end up making the edges of my nails crack since I use my thumbs to open the tubes. Here is a picture of what I am talking about:

*thanks Fisher Scientific for the picture*

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the company Argos Scientific makes a new microcentrifuge tube that is much easier to open. Now if I could only be sponsored by Argos or convince my advisor I really need them....

You know I totally agree with you! I just completed my MSc in Neuroscience and I hate these Eppendorf tubes as well :P I also hate the smaller PCR tubes! Plus wearing gloves makes my nails weaker :(
