This post is a slightly older post which has been in my drafts a wee while: I had a horrible cut on my thumb just a day or two before Christmas which got infected and left me with a thumb which is horribly swollen and sore, like a cartoon thumb when someone has just hit it with a hammer! This has meant I can't bear to do my nails because acetone and an open wound = intense pain! Time to clear my draft posts in time for the new year :)
This was a quick mani I did a couple of weeks ago. Three creme bases a bit of glitter and a stud. Simples.
I used OPI Sparrow Me the Drama, Sally Hansen Commamder in Chic and SpaRitual Delight. The silver glitter used for the gradient is a-england Merlin. The stud was one I purchased from Winterberry nail art on Etsy.
I couldn't resist matting it down and this is how I wore it.
The stud was only applied to wet polish and then top coated on initially with HK Girl, then a layer of matte top coat. It held firm for 24hrs which is a result for me, a picker at polish!
