Polished Up: Orly Terracotta

This polished up blog is a little different from my others, in that I am showing you a photo of my polish after it has started to show some wear. This beautiful summer color by Orly called Terracotta applies a little streaky on the first coat, but after a second it is totally opaque. My problem with this polish is it started to show tip wear on the third day. It is possible this happened because I did not use a base coat for this application. However, with some other shades like my Sally Hansen Xtreme wear, I have gotten a little spoiled when it comes to staying power. I will continue to wear this shade, but will just keep in mind that it's best suited for a weekend getaway in terms of longevity.

Weekend with the girls

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope your week is going great so far! This past weekend I spent time with some awesome ladies, laughed, danced and had a wonderful time. It was great to get in some girl time, as well as spend the weekend in the city. Below are some examples of what I wore over the weekend (click through the slides to see all the outfits). I hope this gives you some ideas on what to pack for your next getaway with the girls.
