Today's mani is of course Olympics inspired in honor of the opening ceremonies later this evening. I knew I didn't want to go with the rings cause they'll be everywhere for the next forever or so, and I knew I wanted to try something new. I have been meaning to try clouds a la Nailside for a long time now and I figured why not today. Look at all mah medals!
- Seche Rebuild base coat / Seche Vite top coat
- Sinful Colors This Is It
- Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Pedal To The Metal
- China Glaze Harvest Moon
I only have three pics of this one because for some reason my camera decided to eat the rest. I took way more than this but apparently the memory card had other plans today. Probably too busy planning it's opening ceremonies party for the other electronics. As you can see, I went for the colors of the Olympic medals: gold, silver, and bronze. I didn't have a bronze color but I was pretty happy with how Harvest Moon played along, man I love that polish. I like this mani but at the same time I don't, it's kinda weird. I love the idea, and I love the Nailside clouds, I just think my polish choices could have changed the outcome. I can't help but think that if I had a Barry M silver foil this would have gone a lot smoother. This Is It was being a pain in the butt and I had no polish thinner, by the time I got to Harvest Moon the tips were kinda thick. Add to that the fact that I'm on that extra craptastic part of a bottle of Seche Vite and there was instantaneous tip wear. I really love those clouds though so I plan to try this again with non-metallics and polishes I know are one coaters or pretty darn close, I think that will help me out a lot.
Let the Olympic Fever begin! Up until I was in high school I did gymnastics, so that is definitely on my have to watch list for this Olympics. Do you guys have any specific sport you just have to watch?
