Okay - now on to the Monday Maybelline Mani!!
This was a Dollar Tree find in a double pack that was clearly repackaged from another store called Phar-Mor for $2.59.  Gotta love Dollar Tree finds!!

First let me say - my DH picked out this np.  Bless his heart, he wanted to be a part of the process.  He ever so gently bent down on one knee, very carefully opened the Helmer (see my red baby in the background) and just began to look through one draw to make an educated decision...and this Maybelline is what he came up with!!
In his defense, he had no idea this was going to be such a PITA to apply and he didn't see my struggling to really make this np look half way decent (which I think is a total fail on my part). This is three days old.
(ARRGG!!  Look at those aweful cuticles!)

The part of this which was solely my fault is that I did not add thinner!!  This stuff dried like pure sand paper!! 
Look at those orange flecks shining!!

Between my mani extender and SV - I smoothed that baby out and when my DH finally saw it he ever so proudly proclaimed "I like that!"  I just politely gave him a sheepish smile with a raised eyebrow and said 'thanks!'

Bless his heart!!

So, considering your seeing the end result what do you think?  I'm a big girl, I can take it!!

Until Next Time...Happy Polishing!!
