It is time for another installment of Monkey See, Monkey Do. If your new to my blog and have never heard of this, it is where a group of us, Crumpet's Nail Tarts, recreate mani's we see around the web, (usually from Pinterest or Facebook,) and post them on to our blogs. I found the inspiration for today's mani on Victoria's Nails Blog.
I kinda did something stupid and used Blue Me Away! from Sally Hansen, which has a glossy finish, instead of just opting to use Phoebe from Zoya, which is already a matte polish! Ugh. I didn't think about this until I had to redo my pointer finger for the THIRD time due to being impatient! Oh well. Live and learn, right. When I applied Shine Of The Times, I used to tape to make sure I got straight lines. :-) I love me some straight lines.
Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color: Blue Me Away! from Sally Hansen - 2 coats
Flakie: Shine Of The Times from Essie
Top coat: Nail Art Special Effect! Topper from Essence - I did not apply this over Shine Of The Times
All pictures were taken inside with out the flash
Can you tell that I didn't use tape on my pointer finger? I pretty much gave up. :-( What do you guys think of this? If you want to see some more Monkey See, Monkey Do mani's, check out these other blogs.
