The mani today is my second attempt at doing a glitter sammy. The last one was pretty but a little too delicate for my taste. So I decided to go for something bolder ;)
Colors Used: City Color - Red, and Spoiled - Jewel Heist
I did 3 layers of each color and topped it off with SV. This is a very interesting red in that it seems really sheer when first applied but by the time I got to the third brushing, it seemed completely opaque. I had to top it with more glitter or it would have been a terribly boring mani! I like this attempt is better than my first one but it doesn't make me go "ooOOOooooo!". What do you guys think? Any feedback?
I also wanted to show you all the mani that I did on one of my sisters (FSIL)...
I cannot remember the colors used at the moment, I'm sorry! And I apologize for the blur :\
She wanted a ladybug theme but it had to be something she could wear to work and this was the end result. I've seen a lot of these mani's because of the "April Shower's Bring May Flowers" challenge and I wasn't planning on posting another / beat a dead horse, but what the lady wants she gets :P She was pleased which, of course, is what I always strive for.
My FMIL just got back from Stagecoach last night and is ready for a new mani, so I'll be posting her nails soon as well.
One last thing before I go! I went with my honey to get his hair cut on Friday and while his stylist was cutting away I walked over to Rite-Aid to peruse their polish collection. They had polishes that I'd never heard of before (the Color City I used on today's mani and Jessee's Girl) and most of their selection was on sale. This is what I hauled home...
Sally Hansen - Mint Sorbet, Jesse's Girl - Spring Break and Wham Bam, City Color - Red, Sinful Colors Midnight Blue and Rimmel - Black Satin
I've swatched them on my color wheel and they're all lovely colors! I can't wait to use them in future mani's!
A final word... Rhinoceros :P
Until next time!
