Nothing's Gonna Change My World...3:42 PM
These nails were sort of spur of the moment nails. I got a TON of nail art supplies from Dollar Nail Art and I've been itching to use them. I've seen a lot of bloggers and artists using striping tape in various ways and I thought I'd try it out on something simple. I also wanted to try out my new Orly Mineral FX collection so I started with two coats of Orly Stone Cold. It was pretty. VERY blingy. But a bit TOO much for me. So I covered that with one coat of Deborah Lippmann's Across the Universe. It's a beautiful color (which unfortunately does not play well with my Seche Vite) and it looked great over the Stone Cold. Then I decided it was a little too blah...lol. So I popped two quick tape stripes over the ring finger and...voila! Instant nail art. (These weren't even totally dry when I got a compliment on them from a clerk at the electronics store!). You might notice that my thumb is MIA in some of the pictures recently. It's because it split halfway down my nail and rather than patch it and baby it for weeks I just cut it off. The growing back process is slow :( I think I might like the pics better without the thumb though, so I'm debating whether to leave it out or give it an encore when it grows back. Time will tell and opinions are appreciated! :)
