Because I'm a rebel... You Don't Know Jacques Suede!!

Yes, I'm completely aware that suede nail polishes are not meant for summer, but I was so excited to find this bottle of polish at my local Winners, I knew I had to give it a try. Plus it's pretty! Plus the boy picked it for my next swatch and I had to oblige. And don't you think breaking up summer neons and brights with a suede is a bit shocking?! I like it! 

My cuticles are horrible. Cleaning, moving and stress have taken a serious toll on my body. My apologies!

I wore this  for a couple days and it chipped like mad. I had to put another coat on for the pictures but you can still see some tip wear! But, the shimmer is so gorgeous - I received a lot of compliments on this! The polish dried crazy fast - like, I'm not done painting fast. So that was good. But I think that without a top coat, this polish has a very short life. Oh well. It's a bit disappointing because it's so gorgeous but perhaps next time I'll try it with a top coat. I'm not a massive fan of the suede look, but it's fun to wear once in a while, nonetheless. 

It's dark, windy and rainy here today. I wonder if that's the reason my headache has not stopped all morning. How's the weather were you are? Seems like a month of summer is almost over and we've gotten no beach weather! Not on the weekends anyway - but isn't that the way it goes in Canada?


  1. Wow! That shade is a stunner! You're right, I think breaking up all the brights with a neutral is nice...keeps things fresh! :)

  2. Love the colour! I was in Wyoming earlier this week and they were in the middle of a gross heat wave. At least I missed the crazy storms back home in SK.
