Continuing with the saga that started out so innocently with just "one" dark nail color.....
Right about the same time, I just happened to see a Facebook post where somebody had posted a picture of some fabulous manicure. I was amazed! I had never seen anything like it. I followed a link that brought me to Chloe's nail blog, my eyes glazed over as I perused every picture, and I'm pretty sure I stopped breathing for at least an hour. I couldn't get enough. Back then she posted almost every day, and I spent hours learning what she used, what she bought, what she liked, where she bought....if she had it, it was damn well going to be mine. I bought it all; striping tape, scotch tape, craft scissors, Seche Vite topcoat. It was a whole new world!
I spent hours trying to duplicate her work. Whatever colors she used, I hit Amazon or eBay and made them mine. I started doing my nails every night. When I look back at some of those manicures now, I cringe, but I thought they were pretty good back then. Unfortunately, my fiberglass nails which previously had been so good to me, were not holding up well with the constant polish changes. I was constantly having to redo the topcoat on them and frustration was setting in fast. Tomorrow night I'll clue you in on the miracle product you now see on my fingers, my Custom Nail Solutions nails. :)
But in the meantime, here's what I did tonight!
My base is China Glaze Cheek to Cheek, and I stamped over that using Kleancolor Metallic Black and my DRK-B plate which I purchased from Ninja Polish. Those DRK plates are the best; nice large images that cover my entire nail.
I'd also like to mention I'm surprised and thrilled to have 31 followers already!! You guys are the best!! Joining the nail community via Facebook and Pinterest has brought so much to my life and goes SO much farther than "just nails". I've made some amazing new friends in the past year as well as reconnected with a friend or two from "the old days". Worth every penny I've spent. And I've spent a LOT.
