I really really liked this one...last night when I did it. It got kinda smushed in my sleep and I tried to repair it but it doesn't look as good as it did before! But, I tried something totally new for me, and it was something I never thought I could do - hand placing glitters! Or more accurately, "glequins", as coined by The Nailasaurus.
Here's my Go Pink Wednesday mani for the week!
I used Wet n Wild Fast Dry - How I Met Your Magenta for the base and hand-placed Martha Stewart glequins using topcoat and an orange stick. I used 2 coats of Milani Jewel FX Hot Pink for the accent nail, and CG Fairy Dust on the thumb. The black glitter actually bled a bit on the nail, I guess I shouldn't be surprised since they bleed like crazy in frankens, but I still thought it looked cool.
I know these next two look almost exactly the same, but the lighting was hitting some of the glequins in the first one, and I really liked how it turned out!
And I have one more thing to add - a small victory for some, but a HUGE victory for me. This next picture is PRE clean-up. This never happens...I am sloppy and I'm always rushing so I almost always get polish on my skin, or at least touching the cuticle line so that I ALWAYS, without fail need to use acetone and a flat brush to clean up. Anyways, I was so beyond excited that I am getting better at application - I practically shoved my nails in my boyfriend's face showing off how clean they were!! Haha, okay that's the end of my shameless bragging. Check out the picture :]
