I hope this Sunday has treated you well :) My post today will probably be ranty and full of angsty irritation. Grrrr....
For starters let me just say that I am having a terrible, no-good, very-bad nail weekend (and it makes me mad!). I bought some lacey nail stickers that I thought would be really cute as french tips on my nails for church today...
I bought these for $1.99 at a Rite Aid drugstore
I applied 2 coats of CG - Love Letters to my nail beds. Then I added 1 thin coat of Sally Hansen - White On to the very tips of my nails to "wrap" them. And then I busted out the nail glue (to help secure the stickers) and started applying away...
I should mention that I did these yesterday afternoon before getting ready to see an LA Philharmonic concert (date night, woohoo! lol). A) These were a pain in the butt to apply. B) From far away they were cute but up-close they looked like a mess. Partially my fault, I suppose. C) They started to lift / peel off by the time we went to dinner 3 HOURS LATER! I applied 3 coats of SV to these suckers and still they couldn't hang! I was pretty peeved!
When we got home I immediately took them off and decided to do a simple frenchie with stickers on my ring-finger beds (because those were the only ones that stayed on well). Aaaaand I mucked it up horribly!
Colors Used: Sally Hansen - White On, China Glaze - Fairy Dust
I was impatient with this mani because I was tired and I just wanted to go to bed. I did a terrible job with the tips and then I didn't wait for them to dry before adding the Fairy Dust. BIG mistake. HUGE! The Fairy Dust made the White On do this weird bubbling / smearing thing, but with only 5 hours of sleep left to look forward to, I wasn't about to start over. So I Seche Vite-ed it and went to bed.
My tips for today: Be careful as to what products you choose to use on your fingers and BE PATIENT! Good manis come to those who wait lol :)
Until next time!
