Lynnderella Cauldron Drippings - wear test

Obviously I haven't done the last third of the 31 Day Challenge, but it's not for lack of inspiration - it's because I didn't feel good about removing my Cauldron Drippings combo before it needed to go! All last week I got so very many compliments on it, and after all the drama surrounding purchasing new Lynns, I just didn't want to throw away such a beautiful manicure (is this sappy? sad? maybe, but true). So, I snapped some pictures to show you how well this wore, then I experimented with my new Milani art brush by doing an 'outline' to mask my wear and keep the mani train rolling!




Keep in mind that my macro camera lens makes everything look 13923x worse, but this really wasn't bad in person! The tip wear was really really minimal, and no large chips/chunks. The growth/chipping near the cuticle was gross, but then I semi-fixed it by doing the 'outline' thing in the bottom picture = co___ol

Sad to say that Custom Kicks stained the crap out of my nails, but happy to say I am back to doing challenge manicures and can't wait to share the things I've been working on with you!!
