**5 days left to enter my contest/giveaway! Go go go!**
So I've seen this thing floating around the blog-o-sphere, and it looks fun! I kinda missed the boat but better late than never, eh? It's a challenge for September:
(click on it unless you enjoy squinting)
If I had made up my mind sooner I could have done Emerald City today, but oh well. So we'll have to kick it off tomorrow with blue nails. I'm excited! Especially for once we get to day 11. Okay, onto the post!
I love Urban Outfitters, but let's admit it: they're kind of expensive. So I usually only end up buying stuff on clearance from them. They recently changed their whole polish line, so all the old stuff is on clearance for 99 cents. Sign me up! One of the polishes I got was Pink 6. Creative name, eh?
Here it is by itself, with the flash on since I paint my nails in the evening.
2 coats. You could probably get away with one, but I did 2 out of force of habit. It's a nice berry color, leaning pink rather than red.
It dried really shiny. That's the best thing about UO polishes, they dry SO SHINY. The formula on this one was fab. I haven't tried any of the revamped UO polishes, I wonder how they'd stack up...
Anywho, continuing with my art kick, I decided to do something funky.
I did Milani Gold Lamé on the tips first. I started out using a piece of tape to make the lines straight, but that was too much work so I ended up just freehanding the rest. Looks pretty good, eh? Sorry about the boo-boo on my ring finger. :(
Then I just did the same thing with Wet n Wild Black Creme
Voila! Easy-peasy, and I got so many compliments on this one. More than one person asked if my nails were fake. This one girl literally gasped and grabbed my hand and was like
Why yes. Yes, I am.
