Hey there guys, quick post today as I need to do my nails.. I've started picking off all the bits off fimo eyes from my sugar skulls I showed you in yesterday's post ! So I did this design last month before going on holiday (without taking any nail polishes with me, may I add), and it actually managed to last for 5 whole days without me getting frustrated and bored with it and ripping it off ! So proud of myself !
So you may be thinking you've seen this design on my blog before, and you'd be right ! I mentioned in my blue spots post that I'd done a similar design previously, and this is it ! I prefer this one to the blue spots, I just love the combination of black, pink and white. Such a classic !
I suffered with pretty major shrinkage with the pink nails, which I think is most probably due to the fact that I used three coats and didn't let the second coat dry completely before putting the third on. And then to make matters worse, I put my Seche Vite on before the third coat was dry.. oops !
For this design I used Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream for the pink colour. I reaaaaally love this colour, but it's more like a jelly than a creme and doesn't become opaque enough for my liking, can anyone recommend a great similar pink colour that's a creme polish ? Other than that, I used OPI Alpine Snow and my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in black for the two dotty accent nails.
So that's it ! I'm off to change my nails, I can't cope any longer with the rough gritty old glue surface on my nails ! Major buffing alert !
By the way, today is the last day of voting for the finalists in Makeup Savvy's nail challenge ! Don't forget to vote for my nails in entry "A" if you have the time !
