Oh the irony!
Today's mani uses the most bottles so far in this challenge,
but due to work, it will be a rather brief post. Oh well.
Today's mani turned into something I didn't like very much.
The concept was simple enuf: do a 2 color gradient
with a duo shimmer topper & a fimo embellishment.
I don't blame the adorable Swirl Mouse Fimo Canes
from Nailiciouss that I was sent for review,
cuz those are so cute & easy to use.
I blame my choice to layer polishes that I haven't used before
for da hot mess on my nails that I've had to look at all week.
Da pile up ~ Booty Babe
bottom row:Cushy Tushy, Honky Badonky, Hind Quarter,
Lilac Got Back & Fruity Patootie
middle row: Top Shelf, Freaky Cheeky, Butt Or Brickle & Skinny Dip
Top row: Bubble Butt, Loose Caboose & Wind Tunnel
When I 1st saw these P & A shaped bottles plus da fun names...
I was all over that!
(I so don't remember on what blog, I've slept since then.)
So I promptly bought da Purple Patootie, Pink Posterior
& Hella Holos 5 bottle sets.
(FYI ~ da Hella Holos aren't holos, they're duo chromes)
I ended up with 2 Skinny Dips
& gave away da dup at last year's Blog-o-versary.
Da 14 remaining bottles have collected dust until now.
Let the nightmare begin!
I started with 2 no prob coats on each nail.
pinky ~ Bubble Butt
ring ~ Top Shelf
middle ~ Cushy Tushy
index ~ Lilac Got Back
thumb ~ I waited to see what I liked best,
not that it mattered in the end LOL
I then did a bit of sponging to create funky French tips.
pinky ~ Loose Caboose
ring ~ Freaky Cheeky
(too close in color & too sheer to cover Top Shelf)
middle ~ I didn't do the gradient on this nail at this point
cuz da other 2 polishes I paired with it were both duos
index ~ Fruity Patootie
While not the best combos ever, t
hey were ok until I added 1 coat of the duos.
Some of da duos were sheer enuf to look fine over da gradients.
However, Butt Or Brickle was too opaque
& pretty much hides da base colors.
Honky Badonky & Hind Quarter
are so close in color over Cushy Tushy
that they only showed if my hand was in da right position.
I then dinged up 2 nails adding da Swirl Mice
cuz I have a wait problem.
I ended up doing Top Shelf with a fruity Patootie gradient,
& Skinny Dip as da duo topper
on my thumb, of which I didn't get a pic.
Methinks I need to look up da work 'brief' in da dictionary.
Next up ~ Most Expensive
When Meowmy gets dis cray cray...
(Ciri is on top of da binders on da top of da hutch on my desk.
He's about 6' up & way above my head!)
Thanks for stopping by to see da hot mess I made on my nails.
Now please go cleanse your poor eyes by visiting da other ladies!
