Opposing Stripes Manicure with Moonflower Polish and Polished for Days

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat of base polish
Polished For Days Solar Flare (April 2018 Polish Pickup Pack), 2 coats plus 2 coats top coat. This is a blackened base polish that shifts from orange to green, with orange to green flakies and with scattered holographic effect. I did need two coats of top coat for a smooth finish. It wasn’t exactly rough after 1 coat, but it wasn’t super shiny smooth.
Moonflower Polish Dip in the Pool, 2 coats, a bright green-blue with blue shimmer. This could have been a One-Coat Wonder. I was worried about nail staining so I doubled up on base coat on my right hand. When I removed it, I did not have any staining.
1 coat of quick-dry top coat

I was thinking about how how people perceive me versus how I perceive myself. Especially as a mom (who drives a minivan), especially now that I’m 40. I know that when I was younger, I saw all moms who drove minivans as hopelessly out-of-touch, lame, with their “mom” haircuts and “mom” jeans. But conversely, if they looked too hip, then they were “trying too hard”. Man, can I go back in time and slap some sense into myself? >.<
