Summer Challenge: Favorite Summer Color

Update

I'm actually still in town because of flash flooding so my moving has been pushed back a few days. AND it turns out we're moving ourselves because the bid from the movers kept getting higher and higher and was getting out of hand. I'm concerned about my nails now with all that packing and handling those boxes. I'm gonna keep a little bottle of lotion on hand to keep my skin moist and I'll likely have to cut down my nails. Ahh well I was going to have to do that anyway when I start my new job next month.

Summer Challenge: Favorite Summer Color

I know I'm a self-proclaimed non-pink girl, but hot pink is my favorite during the summer. Before I really got into nail polish last winter, I wore a color like this ALL. SUMMER. LONG. My friend told me hot pink looks good against white skin, so when we did a pedi, I picked a hot pink and loved it. I bought a Sally Hansen one (which I can't find, ugh I hate moving!) and I used it nonstop. Even a friend of mine was like, pick another color already.

This is a color I haven't used before but it looks awesome. It's got a shimmer and a purple duochrome. I swear, I still don't get the different types of polishes. It's a hot pink that shines purple in some lights. Is that a shimmer? Or a duochrome? Or is that iridescent? Is it iridescent only if it's a clear/white polish? Can it be a shimmer duochrome? I dunno. Someone explain it to me. =)

Sorry about the bumps. It's not the color, which went on beautifully and opaque in two coats, but my new topcoat (Sally Hansen Diamond Flash top coat FYI) bubbled like crazy. So bummed. I've decided most of the quick dry top coats are crap. 

Seche Vite, I miss you. Please come home. Kisses.
