You ever have one of those weeks where you feel frazzled? It's been one of those weeks. I hurt my back walking around Six Flags and since cannot find a comfortable way to sleep. I'm hoping it clears up soon since I blog from my laptop while sitting on the floor. I feel more creative that way I suppose! It's not like I don't have a desk, I just don't use it.
I really love french manicures. The look is so clean and sophisticated, but they get really boring though. I notice if I keep wearing a french people stop commenting. At least if I switch it up with stamps it gives an opening for me to talk about nail art. Love it or hate it, it's a topic starter with the girlies.
This was not an easy task though! I decided to start on a humid day and must have tried this four or five times as my polish was drying. I finally used a hair dryer to get my nails to dry. It was a pretty funny sight!
I used image plate m10 for the flower and Konad special polish in white. After many attempts I decided that the image plates from Hong Kong just aren't worth it. I'm going to stick to Konad from now on unless I'm looking for a design not offered by them.
For the Polish I used Sally Hansen hard as nails French Sheer. It took a good 3 coats to try to mask my tips slightly, but thats to be expected since it's meant for traditional french manicures. It's more of a beige then a pink.
For the flowers stem and the diagonal tip I used Art club nail art lacquer. Not the best, but not the worst. If I had more room on my nails I probably would've made the tip go halfway across. Hopefully my nails will stop breaking on me.
What do you gals think of the image plates from Hong Kong?
