Wow, it has been so long since I have posted! I have been trying to work on my grad school project, so blogging hasn’t been my first priority. Oh yeah, plus this nasty cold. And I’ve been harboring a secret that’s eating me alive… Anyhow, on to last night.
Joey and I constantly lose tweezers. It’s bad. I bought one of those fancy ones with the pretty ladies… I put them in a certain spot in the bathroom so I would never lose them. Guess what? After Christmas they’re lost (I’m not accusing anyone here, because I know no one was in our house but us)! After turning the house upside down, Joey agreed we should buy some off of Amazon. We could get 3 pairs of contoured shaped ones for $4! Sweet! I won’t feel bad about losing these, they’re cheaper than the cheap ones at Wally World! The only problem: they’re ALL blue. Eww. If I’m gonna pluck tiny invisible hairs out of my forehead I would like for my tweezers to be fancy.
Last night, Joey put a movie on, and Freddy joined us. I was painting polka dots on the first and second pairs, and decided to do swirly flowers on the third pair. Freddy took notice and admired my abilities. I told him I would paint his nails next, expecting him to say no. Boy was I wrong! He put his hand out and asked for a skull! I painted a flower. 🙂 I removed it and tackled the skull. I was all finished and proud of my work, and took a very fuzzy picture. When I went to try again, I knocked the nail, smudging the polish. The commotion got Joey’s attention. Somehow during all that he missed the memo that Freddy was getting his nail done! So… I removed it again, and painted the skull again. This time it was a little better (cuz I was experienced). I took pics and was proud of my work. Freddy said he’d wear it to school, too!
I started off with Seche Vite Base Coat, painted 2 coats of Milani White On The Spot, then used a dotting tool to create the skull with OPI Black Onyx. I shut the party down with CND Super Shiney Top Coat. I think I need more Seche Vite TC…
Here are my current nails:
Ok, so I basically did this but stopped at #6. I started with Seche Vite BC, then painted OPI Italian Love Affair on the top half of my nail. I freehanded the bottom half with OPI Casino Royal (it dries so much darker than the bottle). I freehanded it because the dots cover any mistakes, and too many coats tend to chip. I finished with CND Super Shiney TC. I just love the interlocking dot look!
Hopefully next time won’t be so long!
