♥ a simple diagional mani ♥

ALRIGHT!!!!! I need to spend more time adding to my own blog..... Every time I get on the computer I end up reading other peoples blogs and loose track of time! there is over 200-ish active nail blogs...... when I started my blog a few yearss ago there was only like 20-ish...... I am sooo happy to see that people all over the world are sharing their ideas and polish's and mani's.... makes my heart flutter.... So thank you to everyone who contributes all their ideas, their swatches and info.....

♥ And thank you to Brynne @ Glitter me Stupid for that quick comparison of Joe Fresh Peacock to China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic - that means that this polish Icing Dark & Stormy is close enough for me to not acquire Rodeo Fanatic! = = = Lemming Fulfilled!

 I am on a jewelery making kick right now - so I have'nt really been loving my nails as much as usual.there is sooooo many awesome videos on the interwebz & youtube.... and I also have seen a few nail blogger whipping up some cool stuff!

Here is a quick and easy mani using China Glaze Shower Together as a base ( 3 coats ). I applied Nailene straight nail tip guides on the diagonal and added a thick coat of Icing Dark and Stormy = which dried really fast despited being layered over 3 coats of the base polish I used so now I love it even more. I removed the Nailene Straight french tip guides and added Art Deco glitter stripe in Teal Glitter.... which is a mix of green and teal glitter.... I need a sunshine pic for that!

Products used -

China Glaze Shower Together - 3 coats
Nailene Straight French Tip Guides
Icing Dark & Stormy on the Diagonal - 1 thick coat ( that dried surprisingly fast!)
Art Deco Stripe Glitter in Teal Glitter Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat -1 oat

 I thought that the glitter would be a nice compliment to the two polish's I chose. The art Deco glitter strpeing nail art polish's that Ihave dry really, really fast. They are like alot of glitter polish'
s bases where it is almost like hair gel (?) it dries super duper fast. However I think that the other brand of stripe polish that can be found at sally's Beauty has a much finer brush - where the Art deco brand is great for use where you do not need a fine line.... the brush is thick with alot of straw wonky hairs that can be easily snipped off.

all my photos are indoors under fluorescent lighting.....

♥ Have a Great Weekend Everyone ♥
