Another simple prompt... I'm on quite the kick, aren't I? This week, it's GOLD...
1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coat Wet n Wild A Latte Love
Wet n Wild Beat Of A Generation
SinfulColors Clear Coat
Essie Good to Go
Initially, I had a very different idea for this manicure planned out in my head. It even made it to my nails! I was almost finished when a series of bumps, glumps, and starting over forced me to take a different approach.
I started out with 2 coats of A Latte Love. Then, I sponged Yana and Severine onto my nails to get the gradient effect. I probably should've sponged all 3 colors, because I didn't get a very good gradient from A Latte Love to Severine at all. Next, I added clear coat from A Latte Love up into Severine on all my hands. After that, I wrapped my tips haphazardly with Beat Of A Generation. I went back and sponged a little more Severine on the middle of my nails, in hopes that when I did my next coat of clear, I would get small little metallic trails into Yana. It did work, only, they ended up being waaaaay more subtle than what I wanted. One coat of Essie Good to Go, and I was off to bed.
So... not exactly what I was hoping for, but I think I've figured out where I went wrong. So, I might try and replicate this tonight with A Latte Love, Severine, and a different bright shade. I'm thinking cobalt blue, but I'm not 100% sure.
In other news, I've pretty much confirmed my need for a nail art brush set after running into problems with this mani. There's plenty of them online, but I'm hoping I can find one while I'm out and about shopping tomorrow. Definitely hitting up Sephora because the last time I was there, I was on a no-buy and still behaving. Aaaaand I can't wait to grab a fresh bath bomb or 5 from LUSH. Shopping tomorrow, Easter on Sunday... it's going to be a great weekend with lots of family, plenty of Mommy/Peanut time and I. Can't. Wait. Happy weekend indeed!
