Tonight's mani design was inspired by Fitzy at Lacquer Lad. You can see his version HERE. The colors for tonight's mani were supposed to be inspired by my hair, but I picked my polish colors while my hair was still a bit wet & well...2 out of 3 ain't bad. lol
Tonight's line up: OPI Pepe's Purple Passion, China Glaze 108 Degrees & Orly Velvet Rope. PPP has pink glass flecks hidden in it's plumy goodness that alas, do not show up on the nail or in photos. 108 Degrees has a hot pink glass fleck that flaunts itself but is rather sheer. Velvet Rope has a silver glass fleck that also shows in the bottle, but not on the nail.
Pepe's Purple Passion, 2 coats on pinky & thumb; 108 Degrees, 3 coats on ring & index; & Velvet Rope, 2 coats on my middle finger. You can see how 108 Degrees needs either a 4th coat or white/nude undies. I was going to do a braided accent nail, but the sheerness of 108 Degrees put me off that idea.
So I CASE'd Fitzy's braided French tip using my colors. I had to do a 2nd coat of 108 Degrees to make it show up against the darker purple & plum, but it works.
Can you guess which polish color was a wee bit off? lol The colors in my hair are so much more vibrant than my phone camera can capture. The long hair in the back is a soft plum that you can just see in this pic. Mr Inky offered to take pics for me when I grumbled about hating to take pics of myself, but I had to say no thanks cuz I'd still be ugly no matter who's holding da camera. LMBBOLOL It was sweet of him to offer tho.
Just to shown you that cats & dogs can get along, this is my neighbor's dog, Rosie. I'm watching the neighbor's daughter after school this week & as a bonus I get to hangout with da dog too. She's a spaniel/dalmation mix & I just LOVE her polka dot stockings & fluffy toes! I've dog & kid sat for this lovely family for years & taking Rosie for long walks is lots of fun. She really loves her walkies!
Thanks for stopping by!
