Some NOTD; SHXW Red Carpet, Turquoise Gemstone Manicure
Two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Red Carpet over my SHMNT base coat. If you view this full size you can kind of see some sparkles, but this will not communicate how VERY SPARKLY this polish is. The wear on this is great, and I've heard it's comparable to China Glaze Ruby Pumps. Despite all the sparkles, this has a nice smooth finish.
This is my first real nail art design and I am pleased as punch with it. First is my SHMNT base coat, followed by two coats of this turquoise color I frankened, followed by Seche Vite as a top coat. Then I took a very thin brush, and freehanded on the random designs, first with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out, then with Revlon Gold Get 'Em. I have been asked to make a tutorial for this, so that is in the works for this coming week. I'm so excited!
I have not been updating. I've been going through some stress and my nails have suffered greatly. I am too ashamed to show them to you in their current state. I am moving at the end of June, and hope to be updating thereafter.
