Hello everyone! I have some sad news to deliver... I broke the middle finger nail on my photo hand yesterday, and cut down all the rest of my nails to match it. Of course, I am awful at shortening my nails, so now they are not only incredibly short but awkwardly shaped to boot. Such is life though! Hopefully I can scrounge up enough content to bide me time until they grow out a bit. Honestly I don't mind that they are short, it's the shape that is getting to me!
Today's manicure I had taken photos of, but hadn't posted yet. So these are my old, unbroken nails!
I started with a base of Wet N Wild Black Creme. Then I added on one layer of Sally Hansen Glass Slipper, which is a white flakie polish. I added on one coat of Revlon Royal, which is a blue jelly polish. So technically, this is a jelly sandwich, even though it doesn't necessarily look like many jelly sandwiches that I have done or seen.
It was not my intention, but this ended up looking a lot like Inglot 204, which is a royal blue flakie. So if you like Inglot 204 but don't own it, this is a good way to get the look using drugstore polishes!
Of course, I couldn't stop there, so I added on a coat of gLORIous, a holographic topcoat made my the fabulous Lori. If you have Glitter Gal Silver or HITS Hefesto, they are both similar effects.
I had never seen holo over flakies before, and it is a very interesting effect. It is kind of hard to tell in these photos, though -- here the look just ended up looking like DS Glamour over black.
I hope you guys like this combo! Hopefully my nails will grow out superfast and then I can shape them properly. Everyone pray to the nail gods for me! ;)
Have a nice Sunday!
