L'Oreal Star Magnet Fauxnadicure

Good morning girls! I was hoping to get another day out of my Strawberry Fields mani, but it wasn't meant to be. It got pretty beat up from moving a tree! A kind, elderly woman donated her 10 1/2 foot Norfolk Pine Tree to our restaurant. 44 years ago, she purchased it as a 12" tree from The Philadelphia Flower Show, and this past summer, it out-grew her 10' ceiling. It now has a new home in our vestibule, and I must say- it looks very regal and impressive. I love that this beautiful, living thing has a story- and a name- Angel! For reasons unknown, every time I looked at Angel last night,  I was overcome with happiness. Very odd, how  random things do that to me. And something else just as odd for me...for the first time in over 20 years, I feel the stirrings of Christmas Spirit. I am going to decorate Angel for the holiday.
Anyway- *enough* about that! Perhaps it's the full moon's influence that's driving me to ramble....or the lack of sleep. I pulled an "all-night-er" and played polish.

Base-coat- L'Oreal Star Magnet in Purple over 1 coat- Orly, Happily Ever After
Fauxnad plate #P55, star image
Sally Hansen, Royal Purple Chrome to stamp
2 coats Seche
Mattified left pinkey with Essie MAY- very cool...the effect reminds me of Moire fabric!
I'm thinking that I may just mattefy the rest tomorrow.
Have a great day All!!!

This is so awesome! I'm jealous that you have the star magnet polish, I have always wanted that.

Thank you girls!
I had fun doing this mani.

~Nihrida-My initial idea for this mani involved one magnet star and a tip design. I didn't like it much so I saved the mani by adding more polish and magnet stars to the tips.
I have also figured out the secret to magnet polishes.
I *will* be making my own. First up will be a (real)purple!

~thriszha- I had to order my MP from England. I'd like to get a couple more. If you're interested, I can order some for you!

Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!
