TGIF party people!
Ok so you may have noticed I haven’t done a Question of the Week post for a bit. I wasn’t getting much response from them as of late and quite frankly always trying to think of a question when my mind was blank wasn’t working. So I figured it was time to end them. Sort of. Instead I decided I will post questions when I think of good ones or do other short posts like this. I figured most of you like seeing photos instead of a random question anyway, so win-win!
So this mani started out with good intentions but then my impatience and lack of foresight won out and kinda ruined it.
This is Misa Skinny Dipping, which is one of my favorites by them. It is a bit sheer and a definite three-coater but damn it’s pretty.
I wanted to do a “peacock mani” using this and some peacock feather stickers I recently was sent from Kim at Overall Beauty. The stickers are so pretty!
I applied my base coat, then three coats of Skinny Dipping. To make it dry quicker I then applied a coat of Nubar Diamont before waiting about 10 minutes to apply the sticker. I was totally not thinking that the green of the peacock feathers in the sticker would blend in with the nail shade making it not really show up. Duh.
So I applied the sticker with a needle-nose tweezer and quickly realized it wasn’t really standing out much except the very center colors. Then I attempted to remove it with said tweezer but it was already set. So then I cause a gouge in the nail polish. Sigh. This is why I am not a nail art expert. Then I went ahead and applied another coat of Diamont to the top of that nail.
Anyway it is what it is and I left it on because I just love this nail shade, sticker, gouge and all!
Next time I’ll try with a contrasting shade. 😉
