Hey Kids!
Thank you all for commenting on my Fireworks mani!  For all the glitter/sequins on it, it was surprisingly easy to remove. I've had 2 FOTDs since that mani, and am here to post them for you.
Both are relatively simple, using just one image. I hope this doesn't disappoint too many Readers. I'm not happy with the shape of my nails after I did my last fill.... So, instead of working on a layered mani, I'll be spending the rest of my evening off tweaking my nail shape.

If you want to get a good look at the holographic sparkle of the charcoal stars, click the following picture- Taken under fluorescent lights in the restaurant's kitchen.


**Base color is an un-named, un-numbered PA Pro polish. The formula pretty much sucked...even after adding a lot of thinner to it - twice- it still applied like it was elastic...weird. I love the color though, an awesome red purple with red and blue shimmer.
**Fauxnad plate A12, double, triple stamped
**Konad Princess Polish White Pearl
**Holographic stars- from DS- they came in a multi nail art pack that included 2 glitters and fimo slices.
**4(!!!!) coats Seche- star "points" still caught on everything, scratched my lip too.
While I really loved this mani- the points of the stars drove me nutz.

Yuck- look at how dry my hands are in these pictures. This is pretty much the norm for me during the summer. It comes from handling money and frequent hand washing. By the time my week ends on Sunday, my hands look this bad. The mani is sure pretty, though. Tangerine and bright rose are so yummy together!

**Base color- 3 coats Orly Life's A Peach. Love this pretty tangerine polish with its soft raspberry shimmer.
**Fauxnad plate  A05
**Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Speedy Sunburst
**1 coat Love My Nails Dazzling
**1 coat Seche

Both of these are fantastic! Love the stars on the first one. Sorry the PA polish was such a bish, it's certainly a beautiful color.
I love, love orange so the second is completely up my alley. Loving the sparkles!

Laynie said...

OMG, the fireworks mani was amazing, but the orange is just DELECTABLE!!! It almost looks edible, like I want a dessert that tastes as good as that looks. Something summery and fruity...

Absolutely gorgeous, lady!
