I may have forgot some, I did I'm so sorry and I will update this as soon as I figure it out.
Now on to my mani....
I have been thinking about what to do with this mani for a week now. I had lots of time to figure out what I wanted to do and what colors to use. Yeah, in my brain this mani was going to be AMAZING!
It was going to have a pretty red base color, OPI - Ali's Big Break, with a black top color applied with saran wrap. It was also going to have an accent finger on each hand w/ half red and half black, with red glitter on top of the accent. Sound awesome? Hell yeah! I thought this was going to look great. Well, guess what..... It didn't look nothing like it looked in my head. Disasticure in full effect!!!!
The red base was awesome. I should have stopped there. OPI - Ali's Big Break is a shimmery red. The black that I used is China Glaze - Liquid Leather a really awesome black creme. I made a mess all over the place and clean up took nearly an hour, I didn't want to get polish or acetone on my phone so I don't have pics of all the stages.....
The red, 1 coat prior to clean up....
This one is partial clean up I literally had black all over my fingers...
I messed up thumbs on both hand and tried to fix it by adding more black, which made it look like crackle...
The next few are after clean up, I kind of gave up on it because I was defeated.
My ring fingers were supposed to be accents, and you cant even see it..... FACEPALM!!!!
Long storie short. I feel like I messed this up. I was down on myself at first, but this is my second attempt at a saran wrap mani. I have only been painting my nails for a little over a month now. I have lots to be proud of...
1- I am getting pretty good at painting my nails and clean up, compared to what it was, thisis tones better.
2- I have made so many friends, this last month. The kindness that you all show blows me away. The nail polish and beauty blogging community it amazing!
3- My polish stash is growing!
4- I am learning hints and techniques on how to become a better polisher and blogger.
Let me now some of your disaticure stories.
