I know that I said I wouldn't post until Saturday... but I'm a big fat liar :P I did a watermelon mani and decided that I had to share. I've seen this done on a lot of blogs and it's certainly not an originail idea from me lol. It just looked fun so I gave it a try :)
Colors Used: Julep - Rose, Julep - Leah, Sally Hansen - Green With Envy, Rimmel - Black Satin
2 coats of both Rose and Leah, Envy applied with a striper and I used a dotting tool for the "seeds". Easy enough, right? I topped it off with Out the Door. I was extremely impatient and didn't wait for my polka dot's to set before top coating and I ended up with some streaks *sniff*. Lesson learned (for now lol).
One more photo...
As you can see, there is some tip wear. I wasn't planning on posting this mani because it's been done so much. But I've had it on for a couple of days and I just love them. So I took pics well after I should have. Cest la vie!
I also wanted to share my recent polish purchases with you... after the jump!
But on the past couple of shopping trips with Le Fashionista I've found some things I couldn't leave behind...
A set of 5 nail art pens (the tops screw off with brush tips to use as well) and a rhinestone wheel. I found these at Urban Outfitters last weekend. Love the pens, not sold yet on the rhinestones :\
While out at Forever 21 I found their new base coat and top coat and decided to give then a try. I spent a lot of money on Nail Envy with no results, so it's back to the grind stone! I also found a holo glitter that looks really pretty. I'm excited that my camera picked up the rainbow-y effect :) I stand by my past declaration that Love & Beauty polishes need better names... this is Silver. BORING!!
While out buying some odds and ends at Wal-Mart with my honey I found these on sale. Sorbet and Bare Bones. I've worn Sorbet before when a friend on mine let me borrow it to play. But when I swatched this bottle onto my color wheel it came out a lot differently than I remembered it being. Maybe the formula changed?
Lastly, Wal-Mart had Hard Candy polishes on sale. There was slim pickin's by the time I'd gone thru it, but I found the matte top coat "Matte-ly In Love" and I'm curious to see how it differs from the NYC that I currently have.
Alrighty, I guess that it's from me for now...
Until next time!
