I'm so excited about this post. :i Let's start....
When I have to study, I find a million ways to distract myself away from books. I knew I need a manicure because my nails were naked for few days so I put on my favorite pink Fancy Fuchsia by Orly. I wore this color at least 5 times as manicure and also as pedicure. That happens rarely but there's something about this polish that makes me fall in love every time I apply it on nails. I have a back up bottle that's why I can wear it so many times. :$ Seriously, pink lovers you NEED this pink beauty! <3
When I applied it I saw a Sammy's tweet from The Nailasaurus talking about her studded manicure made in 31 Day Challenge. I didn't think twice so I pull out my silver 3D Steel Ball Glitter which I got from Born Pretty Store months ago. Well, I wanted to add black studs but I somehow managed to lost those 2 minutes after I found them in my drawer and I still don't know where I put them. xD
I placed studs differently as Sammy but not because I wanted to but because I wasn't paying attention how she put them on. :$
|Daylight, light box|
Essence - Nail Art Protecting Base Coat
Orly - Fancy Fuchsia / 2 coats
Wet n Wild - Clear Nail Protector
Silver 3D Steel Ball Glitte
First I applied Fancy Fuchsia on my nails, when the 2nd coat was still wet. I simply picked one by one stud with a toothpick and placed it on nail. :) If the base color was already dry, I put a layer of clear polish by Wet n Wild - Clear Nail Protector (which came with Wet n Wild - Prancer). I tried to put a layer of Essie - Good To Go to finish my manicure but I guess it's too thick for that, because I got lots of bubbles so I had to redo my ring finger. :) So use thin TC to avoid bubbling.
If you pick more than one stud on toothpick, remove the excess because if 2 studs fell on the wet surface, they're so hard to take off without ruining the base color. I wanted to do it faster but I almost messed up. xD Be patient! :)
It's so funny to touch your nails with those studs on. Surface is rough and it tickles.. xD Sometimes I scratched my face with them or my hair got caught but nothing too serious. They stayed on for 3 days, some of them fell down but there's still a silver dot and it wasn't so obvious that they weren't there anymore.
Huh, I have a lot to say today. :$
As you can see - I took my pictures in "light box". Well, it's still not a light box, I got a daylight bulb and I make pictures with a black background under the lamp. Simple as that but when I'll have more time, I'll try to make something out. :) Please let me know what do you think about picture quality, do you like them or not, I'd love to hear your opinion.
Here's a bonus picture with our little kitty. <3 He was so curious what I'm doing so he joined me. :D He's very serious when it comes to nails. :P
Huh, this is a really long post but I hope you like it. :i Thanks for reading! :rainbow What do you think? Will you try it out? This manicure was so bright and so unique!
