Got a slightly different post for you tonight! Since both my computer and camera are back up and running (for the most part*), that I wanted to do a video instead of a photo post. So not much else to say, the video does all the work.

*I still don’t have Sony Vegas installed since reformatting my hard drive, so this one doesn’t have a watermark, but future videos will hopefully have one.

Black & White Challenge Day 10: Mani of My Choice

Standard

IMAG0408

I’ve been looking forward to this mani since I decided to do the Black & White Challenge.

Simple newsprint nails today. All over a base of Sally Hansen Hard to Get.

Today is also Treatment Thursday and I have a new kind of treatment for you today.

This is my current nail polish remover. The Onyx Professional 100% Pure Acetone jar. I got it at WalMart.

What I love about this is that unlike other nail polish remover jars I’ve tried (the Sally Hansen ones), the Onyx Professional one has the remover sitting in a tub with plastic bristles, not in a sponge, so it works much better at removing polish than the sponges do. It’s also amazing at removing glitter polish, which is awesome when my POBC fails.

So, tomorrow is Household Item nails, then Saturday I start something new (not a true challenge, though.)

Abstract Challenge Day 7: Half Moons

Standard

I’ve learned from my past mistakes. My half moon experience was much better this time. I painted the first color (Shades of the Season Light Blue) last night, and let it dry overnight before adding the second color (Essie Little Brown Dress). Topped with Color Club Top Coat.

Today is also Treatment Thursday and I’m gonna talk about the Color Club Top Coat. I like that I can use it on tape based manis (tape, French tip, half moon) like I did today, because it’s a thinner top coat than most.

Tomorrow is black & white with glitter, and Saturday is ombre.
