One of da advantages
of living in the 3rd to last time zone on earth
is that my Wednesday post isn't late by my clock. LOL
Today I have one of 2 failed manis from da NAAGG Challenge.
Let's face it...not all ideas earn an A+.
I got an F on this 1st attempt at Jewel Tone nails...
Da line up ~ Revlon Pure Pearl, L.A. Colors Black Pearl
& Sally Hansen Lapis Amethyst
(I thought I was being so clever
picking polishes with jewel names.)
This is 2 patchy, streaky, bubbled coats of Pure Pearl.
I keep using it & keep being disappointed
in how it goes on & looks when dry.
I'm not sure why I haven't frankened this polish yet.
I wonder how it would look as a white pearl holo?
I made a DIY decal using this image off Mash plate 54 & Black Pearl
(another attempt to include something 'jewel')
The decals turned out ok,
but for reasons yet unfigured out,
whenever I trim a decal to just the image
I can't seem to get the edges to play nice.
And for the final indignity...2 coats of Lapis Amethyst.
This is a really nice early duo chrome from SH's Prism line.
It looks like it would be fairly sheer in the bottle,
but those 2 coats nearly obliterated the gunmetal jewels.
No mater how I turned my hand, those jewels staid hidden.
I sealed this hideous mess in
with a coat of Seche Vite out of habit,
but took it all off the next day.
I trying to be more diggy-fied, Meowmy...
(We hope Ciri never loses his sweet kitten playfulness! )
Thanks for stopping by!
