I know this is late, but I didn’t have a chance to take a photo until last night. This week’s theme was “stripes”. And, with Friday being Opening Day for my Brewers, I wanted to do something with Brewers colors, so that’s what I did.
For the base, I used Pure Ice’s “Fast Lane”. It’s a nice gold color, but I can’t wear it alone. It just doesn’t look right with my skin tones. I masked the stripes off with my French tip guides, then painted Sinful Color’s “Midnight Blue” on top of it. It’s the darkest blue I have. Even then, it’s still not the right color. But, that’s mostly me being picky. The base was Revlon’s “Post Trauma Nail Treatment”, and I used Sally Hansen’s “Insta-Dri” not only between the gold and the blue layer, I put it on as my top coat. I like it more than SV. While it takes longer to dry, it lasts longer and isn’t as goopy. It’s almost like the more you use SV, the goopier it gets. My theory is that, with the air in the bottle, it makes it thicker.
I probably could have done the stripes better by either cutting my guides in half, or trying to find my masking tape and cutting small strips. But I like it this way.
I’ve got some swatches to do, and then I’ll do my Easter mani. Yay! Almost back on track!
