Whew! I am one tired Inky tonight, even my whiskers are drooping. LOL I've been watching a neighbor's daughter after school all week & tonight, right after I left their house, I had to leave again for a Stampin' Up! workshop for 8 moms & 10 teen age girls, all of whom are into 4H & horses. We had lots of fun, but I'm glad it only lasted 3 hours. On to the nails...
On the 3rd day of challenge, our nail art aught to be...Candy Canes!
Tonight's line up: Orly Day Glow, L.A. Colors Metallic Pink, Stripe Rite silver & black. The Day Glow shows a hint of blue shimmer that totally fails to be seen on the nail, but I'm ok with that cuz it applies easily & is a nice cool toned white.
This is 2 coats of Day Glow, no top coat. The 1st coat is as streaky & patchy as one can expect with a white polish, but the 2nd coat smoothes this all out & dries to a nice semi gloss.
Ta Da! I used my trusty short striping brush to do the Metallic Pink lines cuz the brush in the bottle was weird. I then went back with my striper (after cleaning it of course) & straightened the lines using Day Glow. Once the stripes dried to the touch I added Seche Vite to my nails, except the ring fingers. My stripes are a bit whimsical (read: wonky), but at arms length they look pretty good. LOL I used my large ball dotting tool to make the center of my bows & the nice thin brushes in the Stripe Rite polishes to paint the remainder of the bows & out line them. Once dry, they too got a coat of Seche Vite. It doesn't really show in the pics, but the L.A. Colors Metallic Pink smeared a lil under the SV, even tho I waited about 15 minutes to apply TC.
Thanks again to Kristine & Lorene for hosting the challenge cuz I sure am having some fun now! Thanks for stopping by...now go visit the other challenge participants!
P.S. I got nominated for 3 Liebster Awards today! Gee, I sure feel special. Thank you Claire from Kerruticles, Skeeter from Skeeterstyle & Liz at Make Up Obsessed for nominating me! Alas, I will have to wait until Sunday to do them properly. I have to work tomorrow & have a gazillion things to do on Saturday.
