Inspired by my new twitter friend @LacqueredAffair . . . who has a most wonderful manicure avi….
Though I don’t really do gems on my nails because of my (self-diagnosed) tactile OCD, I loved the design. So, I had to do my own take on the manicure that involved nothing I could easily yank off my nail. LOL.
This manicure was hard work. It took some time to accomplish… and that was my goal.
I’m testing out Seche Vite UV topcoat… used alongside the companion mini/portable UV lamp. I wanted a manicure that was tedious, and one that I felt I would really enjoy viewing for the long haul. This fit the bill.
My aim is long-lasting shine, and chip free results. I’ll let you know how the topcoat holds up.
…. but it ain’t. It’s FREEZING outside. It FEELS nothing like Spring.
The wind was whipping so harshly I thought my windows were going to shatter last night. And though I don’t know where mine are right now, it’s so cold, you need gloves still.
That little groundhog was serious when he predicted six more weeks of Winter. I guess we are going to really get ALL six weeks of that mess here in Chicago. If it actually snows this weekend though, I’ll be good.
