I hope everyone had an excellent weekend. Here in Canada it was Thanksgiving so I'm at that place where I think I might never eat again. We have leftover pumpkin pie though, so I doubt that resolution will last too long. :p
I went back to that small town bargain store on the way out to visit family. I was checking for a new display of Art Decos but no luck. At the till my husband pointed and said "What about these other polishes?"
Say hello to my very first Sinful Colors. :)
They were 3 dollars each and I think for Canadian prices that's not bad at all, considering the London drug had one SC polish for sale at $2.99. In order from left to right they are called Fiji, Sugar Sugar, Bali Mist, and Opal Glitter.
I have a quick set of pics of my post Thanksgiving manicure:
I picked Figi for my base colour. It's a blue toned purple with a slight pink shimmer. All you see in these is the blue toned purple though. In RL you can see the pink tones as well, even in the daylight. It's overcast today so I'm sure that has something to do with it.
I stamped with bm image plate#'s 03, 06 and 15 using Sally Hansen Chrome in Crystal. I went in with my Cover Girl Sparkle Topcoat Disco Dazzle, picking up the large hex glitters and placing them int he centers of some of the flowers.
My nails are finally getting some lenth again, and I want to play with a few more halloween inspired manicures before I file them square and try to grow them out like that again. I haven't been having much luck with keeping my nails square but I know that has everything to do with how poorly I care for them. I've never used a strengthener before, and only recently began using base coats and worrying about staining. Now that I know about filing, and strengtheners etc I'm going to give this another shot. :)
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be posting my submission for the autumn inspired FNA Challenge soon!
