Black Friday Blue Braid

Hello Dahlings!

I hope you're not all worn out with early bird black Friday shopping. If you are, I hope you got some great deals on polish for the effort! LOL Tonight's mani is a lesson in color choices for nail art. I used THIS tutorial from Lucy at Lucy's Stash, but didn't do as good a job at picking my colors as she does. Of course, she is Lucy & we have come to expect good stuff from her. LOL

Tonight's line up: Milani Key West, Orly It's Up To Blue & Witch's Blue. Key West & It's Up To Blue look more disimilar in person.
This is 2 coats of Key West. It's a lovely, shimmery teal that needs 3 coats for opacity. See the hint of VNL on my ring finger? It also tends to stain a bit, making clean up tedious.
Because Key West was on the sheer side I had to do 2 coats each time I used it to add a section of braid. It was also too close to It's Up To Blue & the 2 blend together in most lighting. So while not a total nail fail, it could have been better. Live & learn!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh I still love it! It's subtle and gorgeous!!! I can't do a braided mani to save my life :( LOL But this is really beautiful! :)

    1. Thank you & yes you can! Just follow Lucy's tutorial. This is one of those 'must practice' manis, but it looks kewl enuf to be worth the effort.
