Hello all! Today I’m blogging from sunny Hawaii! I am the happiest clam to be on vacation this week, but with flying out here on Thursday across six time zones and the excitement of actually being here, I miiiight have forgotten to blog on Friday. Oops. Forgive me? I promise to remember for the rest of this week!
A few weeks ago, I broke the middle nail on my swatching hand all the way down to the quick. You can see in these pictures that it’s still pretty short and funny-shaped, even after weeks of growing out (good thing I had a bit of a backlog of swatches to go through!). So, while it is still short, I decided to try out some nail art looks with a few of my untrieds.
This look is a base of the white creme “That Base” from the now-defunct B Squared Lacquer. I bought this a while back as a base for gradients and other nail art, and have yet to use it much. I used two coats for opacity here (on all my nails, not just the middle two). Over that, I used two coats of KBShimmer “R-E-F-L-E-C-T” for silver flakie goodness on my pointer and pinkie. On my short middle nail, I stamped using Cupcake Polish “Et Tu, Brute” (a blue holo from the August A Box, Indied) and Bundle Monster BM-XL22 stamping plate. On my ring finger nail, I used the same plate and Pahlish “Man’s Red Flower” (a peachy neon holo) to stamp.
