So on Monday Ordinary Misfit published my guest post for her blog. You can view it by clicking here. I was least happy with how my middle fingers turned out and the “nail art” hearts are really just too thick to wear. I did wear my nails that way the next day and one of the hearts managed to pop off, despite quite a few layers of top coat (which obviously bumped and linen printed while I slept). I decided to redo my middle fingers and thumbs to update the mani so I could continue to wear it in the week.
I removed the polish and redid my base coat of Tip Top Miraculous Results. I then painted my middle fingers with Yardley Gel-lac in Fuchsia. I found I still had some VNL (Visible Nail Line) after 3 coats of the Gel-lac. I didn’t have this problem when I used it before. I’m not sure if I now paint thinner layers because I’m getting “better” at polishing, but I definitely notice it myself. Again, not something you would see at a glance, but noticeable for someone who scrutinizes their own nails 🙂 I painted my thumbs with Maybelline Forever Strong Busy Blush. I used both these colours on the dotted gradient on my index fingers in this mani.
Wow, holding a scarf in your hand certainly makes it look snazzy! I’ve seen it in other nail blogs and this is the first time I’ve tried it. I might just do it again!
