Today I have 2 manicures to show you. They were actually meant for the Valentine's Day, but I don't think they will last =) The first one is China Glaze Strawberry Fields. I did some konad on it too, which I hated immediately, so this is the only picture I'm going to show you. This is 4 coats, because I had visible nail line. Strawberry Fields is an odd polish. Everyone says it looks better on everyone else. So do I =) I like the pictures better than the real life version!
Then I have this manicure, which is a remake of Nail Junkie's manicure, but not as beautiful. I realized that she stamped the hearts seperately, which is a better idea, because I was in a hurry and I had a hard time aligning them, trying not to smudge. The smaller side of the stamper works better on me. Plus, hers looks much cuter =)
I used a very stark white creme for this, and applied it very carefully. Then I went over it with a coat of sheer white, which is a good idea, because it smooths the surface and makes white more even and glossy. Then I stamped using m59 and special polish in red.
I think I've become addicted to cleaning cuticles with a brush. It's fun, relaxing, and helps me to achieve nicer looking cuticles!
