Party Nails!

IMG_2082.JPG

It’s wedding time again! This time I’ll be traveling to Bedford, NH for John’s cousin’s wedding. As far as timing goes, I’ll be celebrating my birthday by going to someone’s wedding, lol. Therefore, this is a party mani, since it includes both my birthday and a wedding. I was going to a confetti lite look without it coming out like raucous sprinkles.

-Sally Hansen white

-H&M sheer pink glitter wash

Space Age Mani

My mani lasted so long last time that I wasn’t able to change up colors until now! The dark color is a deep plum purple from Julep and the ring finger is awash in a Sally Hansen chrome. I love the satiny smooth finish on it! It is definitely a bright pure silver and a gunmetaly dirty gray. As you can tell, the purple hue was so dark that I only did 1 coat on some of my nails. They are already chipping after 2 days. The two contrasting colors go well with my black/white graphic dress today!

French Manicure

20140707-105122-39082623.jpg

It’s been two years since I’ve given myself a French manicure. Buffs, nudes and French tips were my obsession all throughout my college years. Upon graduating school, I’ve also graduated unto bold, exciting colors and opted for the more opaque and all-out matte looks.

For this throwback Monday, I used 3 coats of Revlon’s Sheer Blossom that really is quite sheer and ladylike. Then I used the white nail pre-cut tape strips to stencil an accurate white tip with Sally Hansen. For my final coat, instead of a clear coat, I used one more coat of that glassy, sheer pink on top, rounding out my look nicely. Letting the darned thing dry was the hardest. The white Sally Hansen tips took literally forever. I’ve had to fix at least 4 nails just hours later because they became warped upon touching. Are whites other than Sally Hansen better at drying? I need to find one.
