Hey Everyone! OMG what a long drawn out boring day. I keep thinking it is Friday but it isn't and then when I realize that I am disappointed. I am going to make this quick because I am leaving work shortly and I want to get it posted before then.
Today I have a mani using stamping and a square rhinestone. I bought the square rhinestones but had yet to figure out how to use them. I was flipping through my plates and when I saw this image I knew it would be perfect.
I used Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Air for the base coat. I wasn't at all impressed with this polish. It is pretty but it was streaky and even with 3 coats I still had patches and streakyness. Now, this could be because of my application rather than the polish itself but still it was not my friend. The mop of a brush also didn't wow me. It was a good thing I got it on clearance otherwise I would have been more disappointed.
I used Zoya Song for stamping. It stamped really well and OMG I love the color.
I used the little square/diamond image on Mash-35.
After fighting with Air I had no interest in attempting to stamp on all my nails so I just did accent nails. I also didn't want to use all of my rhinestones lol
I actually really liked how this mani came out despite not really enjoying the obvious flaws with Air.
I dinged my middle finger, as you can see, but didn't really want to fix it. I wasn't really feeling well the night I did this mani which didn't help matters.
At least I am finally starting to feel better. I placed the rhinestone in the middle of the stamping design and then topped it off with top coat.
I really liked this mani and was considering doing a different color on each nail. I will have to think of an event to have rainbow nails for.
Air is still somewhat sheer and streaky. There was a hint of visible nail line but only a tiny hint. The pictures brought it out more.
That's all for now :)
