I'm excited for this weekend, if everything goes right and the weather isn't a total bitch, I'm going on a boat this Sunday! I love boating, I practically grew up on the beach around water and boats and I used to work on jet skis so, needless to say, I miss the water sometimes.
I totally forgot what I was going to write because I saw a commercial for some (probably crappy) restaurant with some awesome shots of a delicious guacamole and tacos and now I'm hungry. Oh :(
Anyway, I'm pretty excited about this mani y'all! I've been seeing thess around for a while, Hema did a beautiful interpretation on her blog, Rainbow Nails , the master Sarah at Chalkboard Nails also did a kicking neon one recently, but it was Cee from Absolutely Cee who encouraged me and mentioned that it was actually easier than I thought so I gave them a try. Whaddaya know, they're within my (limited) range of abilities! I present to you my window nails. They're also called frame nails, border nails and other stuff I think, but this is my blog and I like 'window nails'.
They're definitely not perfect by any means and I managed to smudge the pinky during the picture taking process but I really like them! I used Bettina Green Apple for the base and L'Oreal Check Me Out for the middle part. I had read that to do these the easiest is to paint your base first, then tape your tips and paint your center, obviously not taking it all the way to the cuticle. I'm too impatient though so I just did the center then went over the tips again with the green. If your polish is too dense you might want to consider taping lest you make your tips look fat.
In summary, I liked this color combo a lot more than I thought I would. For some reason the pink looked darker or more burnt (if that makes sense) and the green looked almost neon in some shots. So yay for late night experiments that work out!
Thank you for looking and have a great start-of-the weekend !
