Today's mani if the one I am currently sporting! It's a few of my favorite things all together! Funky French, Black and Pink, and Chrome over Black!
Buckle in, this sounds WAY more complicated than it was!
First I did 1 coat of a franken blush color and topped that with 1 coat of Diamond Cosmetics "Sweet as Sugar", a slightly pink polish packed with iridescent micro glitter.
Then I applied hole reinforcements to all the nails except the thumb. For the thumb I had to use a traditional french guide, since my thumbs are so wide.
I then painted Wet & Wild "Black Creme" on the tips of 1 hand and immediately took off the reinforcements. If you don't take them off immediately, while the polish is still wet, you will not get a crisp line, cause as you remove the reinforcement, the polish sticks to it and pulls off a bit. I then repeated this on the other hand. I still have a bit of issue here and there with the polish pulling, but found i could clean it up a bit by pushing it back into place using the edge of my Konad scraper.
Then I reapplied reinforcements, yes, I know, lotsa steps!
Then stamped the overlapping hearts tip design from M73, using Pure Ice "Outrageous" my go to pink chrome.
Oddly, my camera hated me last night, and refused, no matter which setting, I used, and how many times I adjusted the white balance, to show the stamp as a pink color. Here is the closest I could convince it to go:
