V-Day manis! Day 1: Thigh High Fishnets

Good Morning Lovelies!

This week and next I will be doing all Valentine's Day inspired Manis!

Today's mani was intended to just look pretty and lacy, but once I got it on, it reminded me of Thigh Highs, Fishnet Thigh Highs!  I even did a quick and dirty(really smeary) mani with a nude polish last night to reinforce my thoughts!  But first...The original!

I started out with 2 coats of OPI "Manicurist of Seville", a pretty berryish red.  And yet another color I overlooked but Rob picked up and handed me that wound up looking great with my skin tone.  MAN he's good!

Over that I first applied the lacy design from M57 along the free edge.  Be sure to leave a bit of room above the design, so it's not right up against the edge.  I had to redo a few nails after I noticed it looked better with a little room.  Next I applied the Fishnet design from M57, butting the image up to the underside of the lace design.
 
  

And a nude tone base color, to prove my point:

 
Base is Color Club "Best Dressed List" from their Rebel Debutante Collection,
Which I just received for review!  Review to come shortly!  They ROCK!!!
I was in a hurry to get this done and didn't wait long enough for the Konad image to dry, 
so it streaked, SORRY!  But at least you get the idea!

Well, that's all for today my wonderful readers!

I hope you have a fantastic day!
