Manicure Monday

Silver nails, this was my ~interim~ manicure from Tuesday to Saturday.:

… aka life-eating manicure that took half of Saturday to accomplish, turned into a big disaster and was chipped to hell by Sunday night. I used strips of tape cut with some scalloped scrapbooking scissors, and it worked the first time (when I was putting the green over the gold) but the second time (putting the blue over the green) was a huge bust- the tape either pulled off the polish underneath, or tore and left little tape-scraps that I had to pick off with tweezers. I had to use a tiny paintbrush to try to repair the damage but it just didn’t turn out like I hoped it would. I was trying for something like scales, reminiscent of a mermaid’s tail, but Sym said it was like a beach scene (with the gold as the sand and the green & blue as the waves) and Taylor thought I was trying to do Easter eggs. Welp. Better luck next time, I guess.

  2. We had the same manicure then! I love the silver metallic (I have the Revlon Top Speed version). I’m trying to venture into lighter colors because all I’ve worn since January is Maybelline’s Express Finish in “Grape Times”.
