31 Day Challenge Day 2: Silver

     Hey guys!  Whelp, today was another cold one.  My truck would barely start this morning, and we couldn't even open the car wash today because we were so cold.  Well, enough about work, let's get to the important things.  I have tried to wear Silver Star a few times, but there has never been any sun to capture it in, or I couldn't get good pictures.  Well, this time I was able to photograph it.  But that was about the only great thing about this mani.  I used two coats of the Silver Sweep and a top coat.  Both of those made it bubble pretty bad.  The Sally Hansen Insta Dri polishes are one coaters, but I wanted to do a second one for a deeper color.  Uff duh.  I wore Silver Sweep the day after I did this mani and only did one coat and it didn't bubble.  I wanted to photograph it again, but then I remember that I am not perfect and my blog is not perfect and I don't want to have crazy expectations for my hobby because that will make me hate it.

Base coat: Pro FX Fiberized Ridge Filler
Accent nail: Silver Star Hello Kitty by Sephora - 2 coats
Main polish: Silver Sweep from Sally Hansen Insta Dri - 2 coats
Top coat: Essence Better Than Gel Top Coat


I know these pictures look similar, but I want you to see all the different colors that are in Silver Star














Penguins are my favorite animal and I got these for Christmas.  


Tune in tomorrow for Day 3 - Gold.  Check out these other silver manicures!

    1. I don't know why I continually try to use them for anything other than stamping. They ALWAYS piss me off. I'm glad someone else has troubles with them because I was beginning to feel crazy.

  5. Silver star looks lovely. I wonder what it'll look like with lots of top coats.

    1. I did one in the picture and it wasn't gritty at all. I bet it would look almost like a gel with two on.
