I still have this manicure on today. I will be taking it off tomorrow. I plan to put on Revlon Whimsical tomorrow, but I haven't chosen a blue polish to wear under Whimsical yet. If any of you have worn Whimsical before, please let me know if you wore a different color underneath. I'm thinking I may use Sinful Colors Cinderella.
The Hermes manicure has lasted a while, though. I put it on last Sunday, so it's been 6 days. It still hasn't chipped, but there's serious tip shrinkage and tip wear and noticeable growth.
In the pictures below, I am marking my photos with my blog address for the first time. I looked for an iPhone app to use to watermark photos on the iPhone, but many of them will significantly reduce the resolution of the photo. I have a couple of apps on price watches to see if they lower the price, and those apps are not supposed to reduce the resolution, but we'll see. Right now I'm using the PicShop HD -- Photo Editor app. It was free for the day yesterday (and today, too, I think). From what I can tell, the newly saved photos with my blog address are about half the size of the original photo files, but at least the images still look O.K. to me so far. If any of you use a good iPhone app to watermark your photos on your iPhone, please let me know. And, let me know if you think the resolution of these photos is much lower than my usual photo resolution. You should still be able to click on photos to make them larger and hopefully sharper, too.
These next two photos were taken in my office, under office lighting. The top photo is without flash, and the bottom photo is with flash. You can see that the polish has a holo effect even indoors under regular office lighting.
The next few pictures are in sunlight:
|Indirect sunlight, and still there's a lot of holo!|
|Different angle of indirect sunlight. Cool gradient effect.|
|Indirect sunlight. This gives you an idea of what the polish looks like without the big holo fireworks.|
|Again, in indirect sunlight, after several days' worth of wear.|
