THAT'S THE WAY, UH-HUH, UH-HUH, I LIKE IT. (uh-huh, uh-huh)

I stayed awake after work! Yay me! Sad that I'm so excited about something so ridic. But it meant I had lots of time to play with my nails and catch up on some tv. I figure in about 2 weeks I'll be caught up on the tv watching. 

So I guess I have no VOTD today because I'm just not in a complaining kinda mood.  That'll change if I don't get to lay in the pool this weekend, just so you know.

I forgot how much I hate taking off textured polish. It's not as bad as glitter, but it's still kind of a pain in the ass. I had it on my damn toes, too. For the record, the whole pedicure thing was a complete waste of time and effort since I haven't worn sandals all week. 

Anywhosers, once I got that all off, I was ready to actual do what I tried last night. 
Sally Hansen White Out, Barielle Peach Popsicle, China Glaze Life Preserver tape sponge gradient
I am liking this a lot, although I will say it looks much better in person.  Something about the way the light hits this when I take pictures makes it look different than in does in real life.

My white base coat for this is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure White Out. After I put a coat of Seche Vite and let it dry, I taped off my  nails using striping tape.  Then I took a small sponge-type eye shadow applicator and dabbed on the lighter peach, which is Barielle Peach Popsicle. I used the opposite side of my sponge applicator and put China Glaze Life Preserver on the tips. I played with them a little bit to make the colors blend a bit, and when they were dry I threw on 2 more coats of Seche Vite. 

I think it's purdy.  Since I have no plans for the weekend I will probs leave it on for a couple of days. 

For the record, "I have no plans" actually means, "My ass better be laying in that pool or there will be hell to pay".
