Sorry I've been MIA ~ super duper busy like a beaver planning a surprise birthday party for the babe's 30th! It was a great success and he truly was surprised. It's so nerve racking to trust everyone to not say anything.
On to the nails, yay for pastels! For this pre-Easter mani I did a BC and three coats of Sally Hansen's Loyal Lavender. I then stamped the houndstooth image from plate m63 with Icing's Mint 2 Be. This is one of my favorite greens and went nicely with the purple. On my index finger I decided to try some of the water decal nail art sent to me for review by Born Pretty Store.
My last attempt with water decals ~ not so hot. I painted two coats of Mint 2 Be on my accent fingers, let dry, then followed the directions from the water decals exactly. I blow dried them when I hadn't before and they worked so well! They were nice and flat and I couldn't feel the edges. I wore this mani for four days and had no problems. I was very impressed with how well they adhered to my nail, and how long they stayed. I topped the entire mani off with a coat of Essie Matte About You. My first matte mani.
*Disclaimer, I will review all products honestly! I was not paid for this review, just sent various items.
