Hey all! Sorry there wasn't a post during this weekend but I didn't have time to schedule anything before my little boating trip. If it makes you feel better I'm completely roasted from my idiotic sunburn so I'll probably peel soon :(. DAMN YOU past me that did not reapply sunblock!
Enough complaining, back to the nails... A couple of weeks ago they were showing The Other Boleyn Girl and there was a scene where the king was wearing this gorgeous ... thing (it wasn't a shirt, or vest or any other piece of clothing I can name). Point is, it was brown with icy blue embroidery, very rich looking. Of course, the first thing I thought was "Hey! I can do that on my nails!".
For this I started with two coats of Essie Little Brown Dress, a good dark chocolate shade, and stamped with RA-112 and Sally Hansen ColorQuick Pen in chrome blue.
I didn't really wear them as a full mani because I was in the mood for something brighter when I tried this, but you can bet I'll be doing this again and wearing it for a while. Also, my stamping hasn't really been great as of late and I feel reinvigorated with this one :)
Next up I have the really awesome mani I did for the boat trip so keep an eye out for that! I sincerely hope no one is in pain like me and you can enjoy your day!
