Since I don’t have an OH, I wrangled in my friend Steph (for the purposes of this blog Stephano) to complete this challenge – she is not a nail girl so I figure she’s a fair substitute. I told her she could pick any polish from my collection – I did apply base coat (for protection reasons) but aside from that all the application and tidy up was down to her. I did try and video it but my camera battery was dying so it cut out half way. Here is a picture to prove this mani had nothing to do with me.
So, I shall hand you over and let her tell you what she did:
Okay, I’ve never really painted nails before apart when I was really young so doing this for Charlie was a nice little challenge for the evening although at the time she mentioned NOTHING of writing a bit of a blog entry!
While she was cleaning her filthy nails (they were painted purple…) for me so I could make them look nice I chose Can’t Find My Czechbook for the base color and then for the glitter I chose Spark De Triomphe which I personally thought would look good together, and look I was right.
I did two layers for the base color and then once that was dry I went around the edges of the nail with nail varnish remover on a cotton bud to make it neater. Once that was done I added one coat of the glitter and again neatened up the edges and then to finish it off I added one layer of the color top coat!
By the way I don’t normally have a tissue up my nose, I just have a stinking cold right now!
