So we all know how I failed to post last Friday?
Even if I had posted on time,
this month's First Friday Franken mani would still be posted today.
Does this mean I'm caught up?
Who'd a thunk'd it?
So here's what I concocted earlier this week for y'all...
Glow in da dark foil stamping polishes!
Great in theory...not so great in execution.
I started with 2 coats of Sassy Polish & Scrubs Hollywood Hills.
It went on a wee bit patchy & streaky with da 1st coat
due it drying so fast, but it smoothed out on da 2nd coat no prob
& those rainbows!
I then added a quick coat of Orly In A Snap Quick-dry Top Coat.
Da SH Dries Fast had gotten low enuf to be a pita,
so I used this Orly I picked up on a B2G1 on Black Friday.
It goes on very thin & dries fast with a nice glossy finish.
It's perfect for that fast dry coat of clear over my base color
so I can move on to da art!
If I don't get to da art right away, my nails have some protection
& look good enuf to leave da house.
I still prefer Seche Vite for my final top coat
as its thick glossy finish protects my nails very well.
I then tried da new rage in masking for messy manis,
cuz getting da lil shiny bits of foil polish off da skin is usually a pita.
I got this 4oz jar of ammonia free liquid latex
for around $10US thru Amazon
& then decanted some into a clean polish bottle.
Thanks Nail Loopy for da decanting idea!
It goes on opaque & dries darker as well as a bit sheer.
It's also really sticky after it quickly dries!
So I recommend doing one hand at a time.
These are da 11 gitd stamping foils I concocted
using mostly L.A. Colors Live silver foil polish,
some of da Wet N' Wild Chromes from 2013 for foil color
plus suspension fluid & gitd powders from Misfits on 8th
I didn't get creative with da names this time
I just went with what da base color glows with da lights out.
My lil Inky brain just couldn't work that hard.
They all passed da glow & stamp test.
Da one that's hard to see is da Black Glows Green.
It glows a dark mossy green that can be hard to get pics of
tho it glows well IRL.
So I grabbed these 5 to show you today...
...and these 2 plates from MoYou London
along with my uber spiffy Creative Stamper
& got to stamping.
Um, yeah...needs work.
They glow better IRL, but da white needs to be more opaque
plus da silver & blue need more gitd pigment.
They aren't a huge success at this point, but they stamped & glowed,
so with a lil tweaking they should work out just dandy fine!
I wants in MEOW!
It's moments like this I'm so glad I installed pet screen
in all the downstairs windows & da screen door. LOL
Thanks for stopping by!
