Hey, sorry it's been so dead around here! I still do my nails, but haven't been changing it quite as often...or been feeling motivated to post. Anyways, my one year blogiversary was a few days ago...which means my blog has been active for 1 year. Cool beans! I'm probably not going to do anything special though, but just thought I'd document the special occasion.
|Valentine's glequin hearts and french|
Black: Nails Inc Black Taxi
Glequins (glitter-sequins): Born Pretty Store
I made hearts using the red glequins and the pink glequins were just some sort of background for it. They kind of reminded me of a Valentine's disco ball, hence the name! Since I didn't want to do every single nail like this, I just did simple French tips on the rest of the nails. I placed each piece on individually using a toothpick and clear polish. Yes it takes a bit of time, but with enough practice it should get easier.
This mani is very blingy and eyecatching. I've never gotten so many compliments on a manicure before! I was over it after 2 days of wearing it but the people around me weren't. I think the main beauty of this (at least to me!) was how smooth it came out despite all the bling. I used 1 coat of Gelous followed by SV and these became gel-like. These are a lot of fun to play with! I really want all of the colors they have now :)
Where to buy
- A lot of people who saw this have been asking where I got the glitter from so here it is again: I bought it from the Born Pretty Store, and it is item #5 and #7. They have tons of other fun nail art stuff for really cheap there too. You can also use my discount code (PDL91) for 10% off your purchase!
What do you think of my manicure? I'll be doing more with these products, just wait and see...toodles!
