Expecting me to jazz up yesterday's mani, Avon Glisten Scintillant with snowflakes?...NOT!
We got our first snow here in Southern New Jersey, so the last thing I wanted to wear on my nails was a winter theme.
'Tis the season for my whining and complaining about the cold. I hate winter. All those warm and fuzzy TV commercials with everyone gathered around the fireplace sipping hot chocolate and toddies does nothing for me. It's a sham...it's freaking COLD outside, and no kind of household heat can rid me of the radiant cold I feel creeping through the floorboards and through windows.
My husband is planning on retiring to the Mid West within 10 years. He will be going alone, I'm afraid. I'm going South, to get as close to the Equator as I can.
Cold, first snow...bad. Butterflies, flowers...good.
Yesterday's mani, Avon Glisten Scintillant topped off with body tattoo glitter butterflies and fauxnad flowers stamped with WnW Nocturnal using Essence plate from Ulta. I also accented the butterfly bodies with small hex glitter in several colors for some extra flash. Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure and Nfu-Oh #50 also used to accent butterfly wings. 2 coats Seche.
I like this...
You'll have to click on these to get a better look at the pretty sparkle.
Here's the body tattoos I used. They're applied using water, just like water nail decals. The only drawback I have found with this type of glitter tattoos is that after they're on the nail, the surface feels sticky. Within a day, this sticky-ness will work its' way up and through topcoats. I'll be adding Barielle Extender to this before I leave for work to see if it helps with this issue.
