Anyway, back to the nails :) My polish hoarding started with my Jessica collection in 2009. Up to that point I constantly wore acrylics and my natural nails were ruined. A friend suggested Phenomen Oil and Restoration base coat and I never looked back. I probably have about 60 or 70 Jessica polishes even though I haven't bought any (apart from replacements) in over a year, but I love them all.
I picked some bright neon colours as I've decided I've had enough of winter several months early - Purple Burst, Blue Blast and Diva On The Dunes. I taped wide stripes over a white base and then added the brights. The formula has suffered a bit with age on the blue and pinky purple but I got there without too much trouble and finished with Seche Vite.
