Hello!  I haven't been around in a while.  I'm still at the early music festival, rehearsing for hours each day and listening to concerts from the likes of Chatham Baroque and Piffaro.  Unfortunately, all this fun does not leave much time for blogging... I think I've lost a follower or two from my spotty posting!


Today's nails (which are actually what I have on today, although I have another 3 {THREE!} unblogged manicures backlogged) are very simple.  Since we have concerts coming up and we're doing Spanish colonial music, I decided I'd stick to basic red.  Besides, it matches the inside of my wallet.

This is Sally Hansen InstaDri Rapid Red (previously here) all on its own, plus a layer of topcoat to smooth things out.  I used two coats, although the second was mostly added because I managed to dent the first coat before it dried.  I learned from my mistake and added a layer of Seche Vite to help with the wear.  The Sally Hansen polish does dry quickly, but not enough that one can go digging in one's purse for keys, wallet, etc. in the next half an hour.
Rapid Red isn't my favorite red ever, usually I just use it for opacity and top it with something I like better... I think it's a little too tomato-colored for my skin tone.  However, the formula is great, and it'll do in a pinch!

I'll be back to blogging regularly once I get home!
