Clean

Good “old fashioned”, “classic” French manicure on the scene. 

Can never go wrong with this.

My nails feel kinda happy right now. I’m going to try to keep them that way. Lol

for a more neutral Viv

I still decidedly HATE the Kiss Nail Art Stencils.  Either that, or I just really don’t know how to use them yet. 

After the last fiasco with the stencils, Viv encouraged me to try them again with a more neutral base.  The results this time?  Better than that horrible blue, but still needs marked improvement.  

Since I altered the regular French manicure on this one, I’ll have to try another stencil with a “standard” French manicure and see if there is any redemption for these wack little “almost sticker” contraptions which do an incredible job of leading you to believe your nails will look amazing once you have these tiny nail art design tools.  ALL LIES.

Nope, I’m still completely unimpressed…. so on to the photos:

I could have kept this French manicure variation for a little while.  It was a nice little deviation from my “all bright everything” preference in polish these days.  But the stencil and the silver wrecked it for me.

So, Viv??  do you still like these stupid stencils??  lol

BFF – Bland for Fran, my bff

More than anything, I know with certainty that my best friend Fran, HATES a neutral color palette for her nails!
So I was searching for a wonderfully bland, neutral, non-stimulating color just for her!  LMAO. 

I actually found an absolutely beautifully finished and gracefully delicate and classy color in my Sinful Colors stash. Out of This World 
(My SDA-friendly polish lovers –>this is definitely one for you)   

 . . . . But then I got distracted, in my normal “polish ADHD” fashion, and had to swagggg that polish out.  I layered a couple of coats of Sinful Colors Queen of Beauty on top. Luv it!  The glitter in this polish has great coverage but the finish is smooth like no glitter exists.  This is good polish right here!

I like the look of my nails better in everyday life than photos with the bottle of polish.  You can see the detail of the glitter in this pic from my cab ride on the way to work. Almost looks like aluminum foil 🙂
