Hey Everyone!!! OMG I am such an obsessive reader. It is slow at work so I have been reading this book series one of my awesome nail board friends sent me. In four days I have managed to read four of the books. I have one more to read and the 6th book is supposed to come out at the end of July. I have a problem with reading, once the book sinks its claws in me I belong to it until I am done. Lol I am so overly dramatic. I am almost afraid to read the 5th book because then I have to wait for the next one. Waiting is not my strong point. Luckily I have another book from the other series I have to read still and yet another book after that so I am set for, oh, a day or two lol The only good thing is I was so into the book I was reading that instead of getting my blood pressure up and watching the stupid Heat take the championship. What I saw was sloppy and irritating and I am glad I was absorbed in my book even if I did stay up way past bed time reading it until my Kindle died lol.
Today I have a simple mani for you but I loved it and thought it looked great.
I started with a base of China Glaze Recycle which I recently bought from a blog sale. I love this color. It is the perfect gray.
Bruce Kittlee Master Ninja Warrior had to put his warrior skills to use and check it out when I was taking pictures. I love that cat!
I bought this set of rhinestones on ebay. I wanted metallic stud like rhinestones. These are metallic and faceted which I couldn't tell at the time. I still love them. The silver ones are actually smooth and stud like and are the only ones in the wheel with that look. I didn't realize that until I was doing the mani. Not exactly sure why they are the only smooth ones.
I used three coats of Recycle then placed one stone on each nail near the cuticle.
We all know I am indecisive which is why I used four different color stones. I couldn't decide what color I wanted so I just picked four.
Recycle had a great application and was perfect. For the moment it has taken the top spot on my gray list.
Thank you treatment for chipping this mani the next morning and leaving me with less than 24 hours of wear. I was so angry because I loved this mani and would have kept it on an extra day. Stupid treatment. I don't even think the treatment is working.
I can see myself reaching for both Recycle and these rhinestones again because they were both awesome and very versatile. I was able to take the rhinestones off after the mani and put them back in my wheel for reuse. I was sure the metallic color would scratch, chip or wipe off between wear and removal but they looked perfect.
I am glad it is Friday! I am debating checking out the nail stores this weekend. We also talked about seeing the new Monsters Inc movie. We shall see how it goes. I hope everyone enjoys their Friday :)
That's all for now :)
