Where have my nail art skills gone? Are they under da sofa or fridge?
Gah! I wanted to show you a fun indie & I am,
but please ignore my feeble attempt at embellishing it.
I started out with 2 coats each of these 3 China Glaze polishes.
Designer Satin on pinky & index
I like this one.
It went on smooth & has a nice mulberry crème semi-gloss finish.
Liquid Leather on middle
Meh. It's ok & behaved itself,
but I have other black crème polishes that I prefer.
White On White on ring & thumb
I really don't like this polish!
It goes on patchy with streaks that can take 3 coats to smooth out.
Ain't nobody got time for that when there are so many good
or least less pita-y white polishes out there.
Da line up: China Glaze Designer Satin, White on White & Liquid Leather plus LynB Designs Flamboyant Framboise & Essence skinny striper
I added 2 coats of FF over the base colors
with some dabbing to place the larger glitters.
I love da way da largish bright pink holo hexes, hearts & purple micro glitter in a light cherry jelly base looks so different depending on the base color! My least fav is over da white. Not cuz I don't like the white polish, but rather cuz the 1st coat of FF was streaky & da 2nd coat didn't help much. This may be due to my ineptitude in applying it, but methinks I'll stick to wearing FF over black for POP or matching undies for a more subtle look. Hey! I wonder how FF would look over silver...
Anywho, if I had stopped there, all would have been well...but no, I just can't leave well enuf alone. Can I? So I used my skinny striper with da CG polishes to add my fav funky tips & utterly failed. Was I asleep at da brush or what?!?
Egad, I need a remedial class on my own technique. LMBBO
A coat of Seche Vite to seal in da horrors of this mani
then I stuck a fork in it & called it done.
I did have one small success while doing this mani...
I've been looking for a new clean up brush that has a smaller head than da one I've been using the last 2 years. For me, a clean up brush needs to have short stiff bristles & a narrow profile so I can get the polish off my skin without taking da polish off my nails. So there I is in Wally World (translate that to Walmart for those of you not up on your Inky speak) & on a largish, free standing E.L.F. display I see this brush for $1.
It fits my criteria & worked very well for cleaning up after my sloppy self.
Did I tell you it only cost $1? (Ok, it was a smidge more than that when they added on our ever annoying 9.5% state sales tax, but I try to ignore this government invasion of my finances as much as possible. LOL)
End wear report: After 2 days I have pretty much no tip wear cuz
while I find WoW to be a waste of my time,
China Glaze polishes are generally worth their reasonable price.
As for LynBDesigns ... you really can't go wrong with Jenna's fantabulous polishes! She just released a new line based on da hilarious British show QI. Accio Lacquer did a full review HERE & HERE
If you like fandom based indie polished & want to know who's releasing what when,
Mishka is da woman in da know!
I really really want me some of dat!
Fine, don't share...I'll just pout over here.
Why can't that boy behave hisself?
This is the last pic I took of Frau Meyer.
She didn't care that I had ice cream & wouldn't share,
she just wanted to sit in my lap & keep an eye on Ciri.
Thanks for stopping by!
