31 Days of Manicures Day 15: Delicate Nails



Finally, a slight break from the dark manis!

Okay, I had high hopes for today’s manicure. I had purchased some nail art decals that I thought would be perfect for today, but then it apparently refused to come off the mesh it was shipped with, so I had to chalk the two packages of it I had purchased as a loss and come up with something else.

Then, I was thinking of doing lace nails, but didn’t have time to get to the store to buy the lace, and I don’t have the skills to actually make lace patterns on my nails (and don’t have a stamp for lace yet).

So I was racking my brain trying to figure out what else I could do that would be considered delicate. Then, it hit me! A sheer, shimmery blouse!

So, I broke out some sheer, shimmery polishes for this look.

I started with four (yes, four. And they’re thick coats as well!) coats of Essie’s Limo-scene, which is a gorgeous nude color when it finally becomes opaque. I then added two coats of 10 Lacquer’s Birthday Suit, which is a nude shimmer with micro glitter that has the same properties as Essie’s Shine of the Times. It’s a shame that the camera didn’t pick up the shimmer of Birthday Suit, because it’s gorgeous. Topped with Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Flash.

Anyway, that’s it for today. Tomorrow is tribal print nails. God help me.
