Well, today is my first call day in the CCU, so I am about to start at 28 hour shift (oh wow this is going to be exhausting).
Anyway, this mani is basically the same mani as Fashioned Darkly from March of last year, but done in blue and silver rather than red and gold! I loved that mani and I was wearing a dress to a wedding that I thought would go well…in blue. So, ta-da!
I don’t love it as much as the original, but I did enjoy wearing it! And somehow the black stamp held up even though I didn’t top coat it. Yay!
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Blue: Maybelline – Shocking Seas
~ Silver: A England – Excalibur
~ Stamp: JQ – L20
Short and sweet for today. Monday’s post, assuming I get around to posting it, is bright and colorful :-p. Enjoy!
Another Born Pretty Store review, done mid-surgery rotation! They sent me over some water decals to play with, and play I did! That being said, yes, my nails are still tiny.
I started with a dark shimmery red base called Masquerade Ball by Confetti. I wanted something the white decals would pop against that wasn’t just solid black, and I ended up really liking the combo!
These decals are beautiful. They come off easily in water, although they, if anything, dry too fast! You only get about 30 seconds to reposition them before they are stopping where they lay. I had some trouble on my first nail, which is why the spacing on the pointer finger is off. Despite that, I love the end result and it was fun figuring out where to put everything!
There are a bunch more somewhat similar patterns on the page of water decals that I was using here, certainly enough for many more manicures. It’s a pretty good deal I think!
If you want to pick up some quasi-damask water decals for your nails, head over to the Born Pretty Store where you can find them for $1.29. Don’t forget to use my 10% off code, LY5X31! Enjoy!
