Good morning, all! I'm excited that it's the weekend, I need the break lol.
I am very sorry that I didn't post last night, like i said I would (I'm such a liar!!). I was out with some wonderful friends and my honey. It's been a while since we'd hung out so I was in no hurry to get home. Hence I was exhausted when I finally was home and I went straight to bed :( So yea, there's my apology and lame excuse lol. Moving on!
I've been feeling like I'm in a mani rut for a while. So I've taken the advice of Shiko (friend and fan) to look at YouTube videos for inspiration. I came across one that Sephora put up called Indian Summer. It combines the neon-y purple that's very popular right now with their 24 k gold topcoat (I believe it costs $30). It's a beautiful combo and I loved it instantly! I don't like the price of that topcoat however hahaha. So this is what I came up with...
Colors Used: Jesse's Girl - Wild Thing, Sally Hansen - Golden-I, Love & Beauty - Gold
I used the same sweeping technique as with the fishtail nails to get the curved tips (Wild Thing). I then applied Golden-I with a striping brush. The Gold (glitter) was an afterthought that I slapped on at the end hahaha. This mani was so fun and pretty, I wore it for 3 days *gasp*!
I hate hate hate that I couldn't get a decent picture of it, so I bought a camera (a Cannon Powershot) first thing after work yesterday :D But for now you'll have to deal with one more awful-terrible-no-good-very-bad-stupid-cell-phone piktar...
So there you have it, my twist on an Indian Summer :)
I have a polish haul to share with you if you're interested ;) After the jump of course!
So, I was out shopping at Ross for bedding, flatware, dinnerware (you know... home-y stuff) with my honey the other night. I just had to stop at their polish section to see what they had going on, a habit that my dear fiance is very agreeable about (for now lol). The selection was pretty lack luster and I was about to walk away when I spotted these babies under a pile of junk...
That's all for now, I hope you have a marvelous day :)
Until next time!
