World Autism Awareness Manicure

I don’t have any puzzle piece image plates, so I used a pretty blue polish I picked up at Sally’s today with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Silver Sweep, using Konad image plate m60. I am late in getting this up today because I had a lot going on. I hope the third Bundle Monster set has a piece of a puzzle on it, because that would make me very happy. Nina Ultra Pro in Blaze Blu is a matte polish, and I used Seche Vite top coat to give it that glossy shine, but you can’t really see it in the photograph before the stamping below.

And with the Stamping:

I must say I didn’t catch on that this formula was matte, or I might have initially rethought the purchase. Sally’s has a buy 2 get 1 free sale this month, so I picked up Molten Copper and Pretti Pink by Nina Ultra Pro in addition to this pretty blue. I also got Reggae to Riches, and two of the Prismatics, by China Glaze, Liquid Crystal and Full Spectrum. As for the formula on the Nina Ultra Pro Blaze Blu, it was all right, I was not too happy with it on the first coat. It really would have looked better with a third coat, but I didn’t want to do a third coat, so I didn’t. However it did even out after a second coat, but a matte finish on a polish just doesn’t do it for me.

But after a nice coat of Seche Vite it looked like I like polish to look. So I was very pleased. I would definitely repurchase because it reminds me of Nails Inc Baker Street. It’s not a dead on dupe of course, but it’s the closest I’ve come across in my travels. I really like it, and I hope you do too. April is Autism Awareness Month and I hope that you enjoyed my blue World Autism Awareness Day manicure. Thank you for checking it out and if you’ve never tried Nina Ultra Pro polishes, now’s a great time to get three of the ones you find yourself looking at for about $2.50 a pop since it’s $3.79 per bottle and you can get three for around $7 right now during the month at Sally’s. I picked up the three China Glazes, plus the three Nina’s with some Supernail Cuticle Remover for just under $20. I wish you all a fantastic week and happy polishing!
