I was a bit delayed getting this week’s mani up for a couple of reasons. I volunteer to help our local high school bowling conference with keeping their statistics up, and it’s the end of the season. I have to get everything together before Friday afternoon. And, also…I had to get some nail art paint, because that was seriously lacking. I tried using my art acrylics, but yeah…that didn’t turn out well.
The base is a kind of a layer-franken. I had two layers of a REALLY old Sally Hansen color I found in the bathroom, Champagne Frost. It’s a peachish pearl, which I dulled down by a layer of Sinful Colors “You Just Wait”. I was hoping for more of the greenish from the “You Just Wait” to show up.
The plaid came from a bright “Kiss Nail Art” set I got at Walmart. I put the teal, then the pink, and then the purple. I then went back and went over some of the lines with the original color, to get some of the plaid effect, where it goes over one color, but under another. I then put a coat of your basic clear nail polish over it, and then some Seche Vite.
While I only did one hand (waay too much fine work at this time to do both hands), I like how it looks. Will need to try this again when I’m steadier with my left hand. LoL
