Good Morning Lovelies!
I'm back with a fun Christmas Mani for you!
I have a decent excuse as to why I've been so absent lately, and I will explain it to you all after Christmas, promise!
In the meantime, how about some nails!!!
For this mani I applied my base coat of launchpad (best thing EVER, you'll be hearing more about this soon too!).
Then I broke out my french mani guides and stuck two on each nail, going diagonally across the nail, and leaving a gap between each one that was about the same width as the strip itself.
Then I painted a thick coat of China Glaze "Emerald Sparkle" on each nail, and immediately removed the stickers.
I then went back and using the bottle brush, painted the bare stripes with China Glaze "Ruby Pumps"!
And boy did it look great!
Then I added a coat of top coat, and BOO, HISS, it had gotten so thick that it bubbled up like crazy! To add insult to injury, it smeared my ring finger!
So, on a whim, i broke out a metallic gold striper I have from Art Club, and painted a thin line between each green and red stripe. The fact that it was over bubbly, bumpy topcoat made this look terrible, though I can tell it would have looked nice had it not bubbled!
Even though It's not a very good pic, and there are TONS of gross bubbles, I will share a pic....
Try to turn a blind eye to all those bubbles!
I was too tired at this point to attempt to redo the mani!
I'll be back tomorrow with another Wintery, Christmasy, mani!
