Today I have a funny little mani fail to show you that I like to call Christmas Baubles, aka Christmas Puke. Originally I had thought I would capture the effect of all the bits and bobs on a Christmas tree cascading down my nails. In reality, it just looked awful, but it tickles me so I thought I'd show you.
I started with a base of Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar, which is a beautiful deep red with just enough red microglitter to give it a metallic cast, and it's just deep enough to look great on cool-toned skin like mine.
As it stands, they really do just look like Christmas puked all over my hands. Ah well.
Hope you find these as funny as I do.
In other exciting news, I got some nail mail today, containing my new bottle of Duri Rejuvacote, and some new pretties to swatch from Belle Glamour. I'm pretty excited about the new basecoat, though I did also order a backup bottle of Seche Rebuild just in case something goes sidewards with the Duri. I've had good results with the Seche, but I've heard even better things about the Duri, so I thought I'd try it out. As for the swatchy stuff, expect to see a couple of thermals, a new holo, and a new gothy shade hit my blog in the next couple of weeks. Catriona at Belle Glamour is gearing up for her big launch on Jan 24 but she's going to start pre-orders on Dec 31 and will include a Harry Potter series, about which I'm very curious.
In any event, I'll be back on Sunday with my final submission for the Crumpets Nail Tarts Christmas Winter Challenge - and that will be the first nail art challenge I've ever finished, even though it's the second one I started... weird. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
