This week's PHD challenge was "just the tips" I had two entries this week. I am completely and utterly in love with the second entry I came up with. I knew I had an old school Sally Hansen magical nail polish makeup Blue Aura holo in the closet. I've had it for years since I got it for a Christmas and just realized it's a holo yippee!
I started with a BC and two coats of Sinful Bermuda Sunshine. I thought it was perfect since it has a bluish micro shimmer that would complement the blue holo. I then free-handed tips with two coats of the gorgeous Sinful bubble gum pink cream - Beautiful Girl. Then I used the swirly circle image from konad plate m56 and the Sally Blue Aura to stamp. I topped off my index finger and thumbs with my newly purchased eBay rhinestones. I'm sad because of all the shininess my camera (er cough phone cough) wouldn't pick up the detail of the stamping and that lovely holo shimmer. I used one coat of Seche (GASP on a holo?) yea, because I didn't want all this great work to chip in a day or so. Do you like doing tip designs and funky Frenches?
In other horrible news the broken nail I had been trying to save had to be laid to rest. I know the picture looks horrendous but it's my nail + multiple layers of Sally Hansen's insta-fix glue + multiple coats of polish. I'm so sad because this is my photo and dominant hand. I'm willing it to grow so please send me grow happy thoughts!
