More M70 Love!

Good morning Lovely Ladies!  (and Gents if your reading this!)

The lovely "L" asked me yesterday what Acrylic products I use, so first I thought I'd share that, for her and anyone else who may be curious.

I use all Beauty Secrets products, that I purchase from Sally's.
I have had good results from this and feel that it's a good product without paying WAY too much $!

I also use their Non-Acid primer and Dehydrant prior to application.  I really think those two products have made a  HUGE difference in the longevity of the adhesion of the acrylic to my nail.  I don't have near the lifting that I had prior to using these products!


For today I thought I'd show a little more love for M70.  It's a very underused plate in my stash, but oddly enough, I was quite shocked when Michelle picked it, and I had plans to use it for this weeks mani as well!

I LOVE the look of chrome polishes over black.  I don't knwo what it is but I just LOVE it!
So I started with 1 coat of Wet and Wild "Black Creme".
Than I broke out M70 along with China Glaze "Harmony" and "Cherish".
I painted a strip of Harmony over the wavy portion of the design, and covered the rest on Cherish.
The trick to the scraping, for me at least, is to scrape so that 1 of the colors isn't drug over another color.
Here was the final result (just ignore the weird bald spot on my index finger)

 
I really like how this came out!
Well, that's all for today.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Dude! I love that konadicure. Also thanks for the info on the products. I am so tired of paying $20-$25 every two weeks LOL.

I love that! I now want to try to use more than one color in a stamp!

PowerLifterChick said...

L, I TOTALLY understand!
I think I spent $40 or $50 over 6 months ago to get everything, and I JUST THIS WEEKEND finally had to buy another bottle of acrylic liquid!
So yeah its DEFINITELY cheaper!
And THANKS!

GildedAngel,
Thanks hun!
Yes definitely use more than one color! I still can't figure out why I dont do it more! I love multi color stamps!
