Mani Monday: Sheswai Lacquer in Dig It


Even though I’m not Irish, I got into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit this weekend and painted my nails in green. I went with Sheswai Dig It. After seeing Kelly show off this gorgeous green, I had to have it. I am not a big fan of green in general but this one is so deep and rich that I had to add it to the nail vault.

This was my first Sheswai purchase but it will not be my last, I was really impressed with this formula. The color flowed on to the nail nicely and had the perfect consistency to it. The color leveled out nicely, even when my pursuit of the perfect manicure required that I tend to some nicks here and there. And you can see it is still not perfect, but it is getting better. Most importantly, the coverage I had in a single coat was even, practically full and didn’t streak whatsoever. This is what is convincing me to try more Sheswai shades.

To top things off, I used the new Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat. It’s one of the new gel top coats now in stores hopping on gel polish bandwagon. This top coat can be cured by natural light and comes off easily with nail polish remover.

This top coat dried pretty quickly without curing under a lamp and gave my nails a rich, glossy shine…more shine than a different gel-like top coat I mentioned a little while ago. I’m keeping an eye on how this wears, this is only day 2 but so far I might like this top more than the other.

What’s on your nails this week? Let me know in the comments.
