Hump Day

I had a crummy weekend. Someone sideswiped my car and drove away. Bah. I hope y'all are having better days!

Anyway, on to nails!

This is Revlon Powder Puff Matte Suede, two coats + two coats Seche (this thing eats TC)

This would have been opaque with one more coat but I couldn't stand the thick and funky texture that was three coats. I hated it so much the first time I swatched it, don't know what possessed me to try again.  Luckily, VNL doesn't really bother me and it turns out I like it in two coats, a lot. Enough that I wore it for four days. I thought it made my nails look like porcelain, heh.

Oh yeah, I remembered why I hated it so much. It took forever to dry. I waited 30 minutes to paint an accent on my ring finger but just ended up smudging it instead. So, I said the hell with the matte finish and threw on TC.

The nice thing though, it has a secret blue flash, but I had a devil of time capturing with the camera.

Reminds me of moonlight reflecting off snow.

First Post!

Today seems as good a day as any to pop my posting cherry.

This was actually my mani the day before St. Patrick's day, but I'm posting because ya know... green.

Unnamed franken.

I was aiming for a nude holo.

I mentioned green? This flashes orange or green (thumb).

The green, it was not nearly as meek in person.

I thought I was going to show you a finished product. However, this isn't exactly a nude and it also be a lot more holo.  Back to the drawing board!
