The Nail Files: REVIVAL!

Ok, who doesn’t love a good revival, am I right?! If you’ve been in bloglandia for a while now, you know my cheeseburger partner-in-crime & one of the bestest friends I have, Tara, used to host The Nail Files.

I loved that link-up! Seeing other people’s pretty nails & then hunting down their colors made me an extremely happy person, lol. When it ended, I stopped showing off my nails other than on Instagram, BUT, today it all changes!

Joey & I are bringing back The Nail Files in good ole revival fashion!

To hop right into here, let’s get to this weeks mani! When I went home last year, my sister-in-law and I decided to go out for a mani/pedi date. I usually pick dark colors (hello my little black heart), but I was absolutely drawn to this crazy fun color that time.

Isn’t it a beauty though?!

It’s a neon color, so it takes 2-3 coats to build up! I love that it’s not streaky & applies easily. Because it’s a neon, it dries matte, so if you want it shiny, you’ll definitely want to apply a top coat! I use the Essie Gel Couture Top Coat whenever I can and so far, the mani has held up this whole week with no chips or peeling.

Now it’s your turn. Here’s how to participate!

    I remember the original Nail Files linkup! I used to paint my nails all the time, but for some reason it’s just not a part of my routine anymore. I wish I was better at it! Ha ha. Your current color is gorgeous!

    I went almost two years not biting my nails and painting them weekly. I’ve completely fallen off the wagon. I need to find my way back.

    I thought that was DJ Play That Song until I saw the name of it; they’re really similar. I have DJ and I loooooove it! It’s a summer favorite for sure. Right now I’m wearing Butler Please (almost neon blue, so bright) in anticipation of spring… but they’re chipped because I was too lazy to top coat so I’ll save my post for another week 😉

      Ohhh! I don’t think I’ve seen that color. I’ll have to look it up. I LOVE Butler Please. At some point I used to have it but it got sooooo clumpy and gross that I had to throw it out. I want to see your nails so I can decide if I should get that color again lol. xo

        I should have snapped a pic for you before I took it all off but I’m just seeing this now! But you should TOTALLY get it again. It’s the most fun color ever.

    The color is a real killer 🙂 Add some black floral ornaments and you’ll have a winning combination.
