Hi Kids! If someone was giving out "grades" today, I'd certainly get an "F" for not using my time wisely. :(
(I'm going to have to rush through this post...it's back to work for me this afternoon.)
Anyway...From the top- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure- To say that I'm in Love with the brushes in this new collection is an understatement. The short stem and wide flat brush are so perfect for me, I had virtually no clean-up after applying it as my base coat! For this mani, I chose Midnight in NY, but was so disappointed in the lack of sparkle, I doctored it up with 2 kinds of multi-colored, micro glitters, and made it absolutely gorgeous. Once I had my new and improved Midnight in NY on my nails, I knew that I would be stamping a space themed mani. Using the book Cosmos by Carl Sagan as inspiration, I came up with this multi layered fauxnadicure; Click to make these humongous!
A piece of my son's hair somehow made it into my picture...posting this one to show detail and the duochrome properties of Spa Ritual, It's Raining Men-
Better angle to prove that my nails are not wide Chicklets, and to show some love to my Cockatiels, Pierre, Razor and Pearl...
Franken with 1 coat Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat. (Testing this after reading good things about it in MeganChair's Blog, Little Music Boxes) This would definitely need another coat or 2 if I wasn't planning a fauxnadicure.

Fauxnad plates used;
**B22, A8, A12, H1 & P55. I initially had trouble picking up images from my new A series plates, until I used less pressure when scraping.
**I used Spa Ritual, It's Raining Men (Sheer lite blue with a golden pink flash/duochrome), Spa Ritual, She's a River (sheer, murky, lite blue-grey with a blue flash) and China Glaze, Millennium.
I used the Spa Rituals purely for the flash and duochrome properties.
**1 coat Seche
omg...I *think* that's all...I'm in such a rush!!!
