I won’t lie…. I just knew we would be waiting a week to find out the final results of this election.
The excitement and calm that I experienced with the election result that Obama would be our president for FOUR MORE YEARS!?!?!?!?! I slept so much better last night.
And WHAT A RELIEF not to have to see another negative political ad for this election!
This Obama-inspired manicure was done for my beautiful client Sophia for her VIP attendance at the McCormick Place election night CELEBRATION for Obama! And her nails most definitely captured the mood of the event!!!! I loved them.
OPI – “Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue”
OPI – “The Living Daylights”
China Glaze – “White On White” Julep – “Sienna” w/acrylic paint in blue and red for Obama “FORWARD” logo
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.
My iPhone needs its own “case closet”. Like a shoe rack. Or a wardrobe.
I didn’t realize the extent of my foolishness until I received my new case in the mail… that I forgot I had ordered… because I already had 6 cases that I wasn’t using. And yes, I have had my new iPhone for approximately 3 (count them: one, two, three..) weeks.
But I NEEDED this case!!!
Okay, okay. I know “need” is relative. This gave me the perfect motivation to try out this “border nails” nail trend in the process.
I started with China Glaze – “White On White”
I didn’t have a perfect color match to the case’s pink trim. So, I made my own. *shrugs* I blended an even ratio (1:1) of Sinful Colors – “Boom Boom” & “24/7” and used a size “0” nail art brush to outline my nail.
I knew it was a completely successful manicure when the cashier at Whole Foods commented that she loved how my nails matched my phone! Nail art wins again :-).
