It's August? Really?!? Summer goes by waaaaay to fast, don't you think? Somehow, we've arrived at the 40th Edition of Fishbowl Friday, which according to tradition should be the Ruby Edition. That prompt does exist somewhere in the fishbowl, but the one I happened to pull for this week was PUNK...
1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
2 Coats SinfulColors Black On Black
China Glaze Mingle With Kringle
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite
Sorry for the photobomb... but Mirrorball! I've seen it used in a lot of gorgeous manicures, but for some reason, I haven't used it until now. Why haven't I used it before now?!? No more hiding in the depths of the sparklestash, it has definitely earned a spot in the faves box!
So... PUNK nails. That always makes me think of black polish, but I was in the mood to do a grungy gradient with silver. I sponged Black on Black and Casablanca together for the gradient, but something was missing. Aaaand when something is missing, I tend to think glitter, so I added random spots of Mingle With Kringle. Then, I used Mirrorball to create a gradient halfway through the silver to my tips.
Part of me regrets adding Mingle With Kringle because it looks a little random. The other part of me doesn't mind the randomness one bit. But, if I were to do it all over, I'd probably skip that part! Overall, though... I love this gradient and will probably keep it on another day. Probably.
In other news, Mr. Sparkle and I are celebrating six years of marriage tomorrow. Traditionally, that's the Candy/Iron anniversary... a really odd either/or if you ask me! Honestly, I can't say that I would want either of those things for an anniversary present! However, we are planning on celebrating with a dinner date, and if you've got kiddos, you know just how awesome and exciting that is! Dressing Up! Uninterrupted Conversation! Maybe Wine!!! Woohoo!!!
It's the little things and the shiny things, folks... Happy Friday!!!
