Out-gray-geous Konad

Posted by manicuremania on November 25, 2009

This is of course a base of Barielle Out-Gray-Geous, konaded with plate konaded with plate 64 and Barielle U-Concrete-Me.

This is not good. I was trying for something subtle with the two different gray finishes, but I don’t like the plate, I think. It just looks…sloppy.

Ice Coffee – Fancier Now!

Posted by manicuremania on October 4, 2009

Well this is my first foray into nail jewels. I’ve had some sitting around for forever and just never did anything with them before.

So…I stuck them on while my Seche Vite was still tacky, then covered it with another layer of Seche. Which…is that how it should be done? On my thumbs the Seche is sort of pooling around the rhinestones and it looks silly. Actually my thumbs look silly anyway, there’s way too much going on.

I suppose I shouldn’t hide my nail mistakes, posting them will help me grow! Or something. It will give me photographic evidence of what NOT to do, at least.

The verdict per me: thumbs = bad, other fingers = acceptable.
