Hi dear reader!
How are you doing today? I'm feeling much better and I even wanted to play around with my nail art stuff, so that's a sign of getting better! ;) I told you yesterday I received a small nail art package, I've ordered it on Dollar Nail Art with a large group of ladies from the Dutch nail topic. I received black rhinestones, three kinds of studs and hex glitters and I've actually placed a new order because these are all so cute!
On the picture above you see what I've used for today's mani: China Glaze Recycle, Essence stripers Silver and Black, black rhinestones, silver round studs, a plastic stick, Essence top coat and Seche Vite.
I thought Recycle would make a neat base colour and so it did! It combines pretty good with the black and silver. I had some issues with it first, the formula was really thick and almost impossible to polish with but with a few drops of Seche Restore it was perfect! I made a three lines on my nails with the Essence stripers and placed the rhinestones and studs on my nail, using the plastic stick and the Essence top coat. I didn't use Seche Vite for it because I'm so slow with this and it would be dry after I placed my first stud. :') I used Seche to top it all off because it's a thick top coat and it really bugs me when I feel glitters, or in this case studs, on my nails. It made it a little less horrid. ;)
So, here are the pictures of the final result:
Neat eh? I'm still practicing with the stripers, sometimes I get really thick lines and that's something I want to avoid!
Tadaa! Wow, you've actually seen something very special today: the first time I'm showing my thumb on my blog! I never make pictures of it because recently my nail broke and now it's pretty grown back but it still makes me sad.
This one is shot in artificial light. Why? I don't know, I just like my nails now.
After all this was a succesful day for me and my nail art skills. ;)
What do you think?
Have a nice thursday!
