It's been entirely too long since I've posted. I apologize for my absence! I'm not sure why I've been dragging my heels about blogging lately. Maybe just a rut? Maybe just tired from work. I n any case, I'm still around, still painting my nails...oh so frequently! So I do have lots of catch up pics to show you. :)
This is the Claire's Mood Shy/Flirty. I left it matte and actually used a coat of China Glaze Matte Magic as a top coat because I couldn't bear not to put any form of top coat on my mani. Apparently the little white specks are from the Matte Magic and I should've cleaned off the lip of the bottle and/or my brush better (or so I'm told). :)
After hot water.
After cold water.
Now this was a wacky combination that looks very unassuming. I did Claire's Mood in Bored/Excited. Then I topped it with Claire's Mermaid.
That's the Mermaid bottle above. It looked very streaky and uneven, so I threw on China Glaze Shooting Stars, which has a way of making everything look better! (And it did!)
The color change was fairly subtle and showed just like french tips that were a bit more corally than the rest of the nail.
This mani was super duper girly frilly frou-frou for me and it kind of freaked me out at first! But then I embraced it whole-heartedly and had lots of happy thoughts including snowflakes, sparkles, unicorns, icicles, snow cones, ballerinas, rainbow brite, etc.
I think it was Morgan who had asked for tips on how I apply polish in general and I am still going to post that for you soon! Again, I apologize for the delay and thank you for staying with me. :)
EDIT: I have to laugh at myself - it's been so long since I've posted that I conveniently forgot what size photos I normally show. These are quite a bit bigger!! Do you care? Do you like this size better? Let me know if you have an opinion on the matter. Thanks!
