March Manicure Favorites

It’s April 1, y’all!! Happy April Fool’s Day! Given the current and continuing need for social isolation and social distancing, it has been a fairly uneventful April Fool’s Day this year. I was halfway hoping I would wake up to find out COVID-19 was one big, epic “gotcha”. Alas, that did not happen.

But there’s nothing foolish (in my opinion, anyhow) about my favorite March manicures. I feel like I didn’t manicure as much as usual this month, mainly because I was busy with work for most of the month. After my contract work temporarily (I hope!) dried up, I tried to stay busy with life things. Truthfully, I’ve been getting through my doldrums by watching Pride & Prejudice (the 1995 BBC version) on endless repeat. Don’t judge me! We all cope in our various ways. *ahem*

I made up for the lack of manicures by wearing a lot of stuff I really, really, really LOVED this past month. I have 8 favorites to share in today’s post. Go me!

glam-yessircaptaintightpants-sm

My first fave for the month is Glam Polish, Yes Sir, Captain Tight Pants. I love, love, love, love, LOVE the shimmer in this polish. It pushes the base color to this in-between land that exists next to “brick red” and “grandma rose”. And it really gets my motor running. Rawr!

My next favorite was this shimmery, shifty beauty from Cupcake Polish: Blue Lagoon. This was part of their Iceland Collection. Y’all may remember I fell pretty hard for that entire collection. This beauty was a favorite for me, and I enjoyed the heck out of it when I manicured with it. It is so icy and almost stark. But it is also delicate.

nnp-featheredflight-sm

Noodles Nail Polish, Feathered Flight. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to see this pretty polish on my favorites list for March. After all, I went on and on and on about how sentimental it was and how it brought back sweet memories from my childhood. On top of all that, it is a gorgeous color combination. I love how I can see All The Colors in here.

qp-shamrockshimmy-sm

My next favorite is a shop-my-stash polish: Quixotic Polish, Shamrock Shimmy. It’s sort of an “oldie”, in terms of my Quixotic stash because I haven’t been collecting from this brand for that long. But it is always a “goodie” when I see this on my nails. I had to pull this one out for my St. Patrick’s Day manicure. And it was perfection, as always!

gradient-qp-chartreuseswizzle+treatyoself2019+goldcherryblossoms-sm

My next favorite was this gradient with Quixotic Polish, Chartreuse Swizzle and Treat Yo Self 2019. I stamped over it with China Glaze, Best Ponies Forever and a cherry blossom design. Sadly, I feel like the design didn’t show well enough. But this gradient was Everything to me. I love these two colors together.

stamp-pfd-seaingisbelieving+ff-darkknight-blackpaisley-sm

Polished For Days, Sea-ing is Believing … Stamped with Funky Fingers, Dark Knight and a design from Born Pretty plate BP-22. This polish had to go onto my favorites list one way or another. I wore it alone for a few days and then stamped over it to extend that manicure for a few more days. I loved this design. It’s a favorite for me, in general. But this black against the base color is perfection to me. And, of course, this polish is beyond magical.

opi-nessieplayshide&seak-sm

OPI, Nessie Plays Hide and Sea-k was my next favorite for the month. I stamped over this polish, too, but I found I liked it slightly better on its own. The stamping covers the delicate shimmer too much. This polish is so stinkin’ PRETTY!! I love the shimmer and the gentle color shifts. The polish has a mysterious quality to it, and I adore the darkness in the base.

qp-sacredpeacock-sm

Aaaaand, rounding out my favorites list, we have Quixotic Polish, The Sacred Peacock. This one just barely snuck under the wire for March. I’m still wearing it now, in April … so it might have to go on my April favorites list, too! Hmmm.

THE WRAP-UP:

Whew! What a great month, y’all! As I said before, I might not have manicured a lot during the month. But I definitely found my happy place with all these pretty, pretty polishes.

What about you guys? What were you wearing and loving during March? I would love to hear all about it!
