NOTW #1 ~ Franken Family 3rd generation

Hello Dahlings!

My 1st mani of the week is my version of Dayze'from Nail Craze with Daze Franken Family mani seen HERE. She based hers on Missy from Gnarly Nails HERE. My nails are a bit longer than theirs, so I had to adapt a smidge. These are the polishes I used:

In addition to my ancient, but trusty No More Wraps base coat & Seche Vite FDTC I used China Glaze Gaga for Green, Milani Black Magic, Milani White on the Spot & Orly It's Up to Blue.

Here's 2 coats of Gaga for Green. (See? I do have oil & know how to use it. I just have really dry skin & a tendency towards hangnails from working with paper.) This is a weird one. It's on the thin & runny side and the 1st coat had a jelly-esque translucency around the edges, but I'm pretty sure it's technically a creme. The 2nd coat made this go away, but I still had some VNL on a couple of fingers. Since I planned on covering the nail line with black, I didn't worry about it. If I weren't painting over the nail line, a 3rd coat would have been needed for full opacity.

Meet the family! I gave the teen daughter a blue streak in her hair as well as the mom & lil girl blue bows so my mani co-ordinates with my aqua hair.

I still have a lot to learn about using my phone to take photos along with fun stuff like cuticle clean up & care. I'll get the hang of this nail art this...eventually. LOL
