Rays of Purple Glittery Light

HAAAAAAAAPPY FRIDAY!

It doesn't really feel like Friday to me since, here in P.R., we had Monday, Wednesday and today off due to holidays, so you can imagine most places opened 2 days at most. The boyfriend and I are both off from work and, while I feel bad that he's not getting paid, it's also really nice to have some time off and see each other during daylight!

Onto nailtime, I've been sitting on these pictures for a while now and just never felt like posting them for some reason. They're not bad, I just don't think they were my style or some other random insecurity reason that made me not post them until now. I'm only posting them today because I'm putting (totally wrote purring, lol) off showing my sad post-vacation nubs :(

I started with a base of Essie Licorice, applied striping tape and layered Nina Ultra Pro in Purple X-ing. Then, I added the rhinestones to the starting point for the lines for a little pizzazz and a finishing touch.




See? Not bad, just meh. I really hoped the purple would contrast more with the black but, for a subtle sparkle, it was good. I originally made these for a guest post which I'm hoping you'll see soon because it has been one of my favorite manis to date!

Have a great weekend and I'll be off babying my nubs! Or going camping and messing them up even more. We shall see.

PD: Has anyone here tried the Nailtiques Formula 2 protein base coat thing? I just bought it and don't want to regret it! My nails have been peely and misbehaved lately :(

  2. I really need some striping tape in my life. I am loving these! I feel like the purple probably stood out more against the black in person, glittery things are weird to photograph. I'm kind of in love with that purple, I may need to put that on my list of things to hunt down.

    Don't be skurred of the nubs. It's like a band-aid, just get it over with lol. Quit purring it off.

    1. Dude, I got mine from ebay for around about $2 or something and it has 12 of the little rolls of tape. You really do need the shade, it's one of the very few all glitter polishes I have and like.

      Alright, I guess I can't purr it off any longer!
